Could I really lose my license or go to Jail for a Traffic Violation?
Exceeding the speed limit by 10 or so miles an hour will usually result in a simple ticket with a fine attached to it. However, traffic violations that put others at substantial risk for injury or death could result in jail time and loss of your license. For instance, violations involving excessive speeding, speeding in a school or construction zone, running a red light, passing in a no-passing zone, or leaving the scene of an accident can carry much greater consequences. Depending on your driving record and the circumstances surrounding your case, the judge may decide to suspend or revoke your license or sentence you to a few days in jail.

There are a number of things to consider when resolving traffic violations. At James S. Arnold, our traffic lawyers work with the court in exploring alternatives to jail, license suspension, and a mark against your driving record. If possible, our attorneys will try and remove or reduce the charge against you in order to help you avoid paying increased insurance premiums that could cost you thousands of dollars over the course of a few years.
