Newport News Traffic Ticket Attorney
Virginia Traffic Ticket Laws & Penalties
Any traffic ticket, whether it is an infraction or a criminal matter, can add demerit points to your Virginia driving record. Traffic infraction points will go on your driving record and remain there for 3 – 11 years. Should you accumulate too many points at a time, you run the risk of having your license suspended. Besides going on your driving record, traffic misdemeanors and felonies will become part of your criminal record permanently.
For moving violations, the amount of your fine will be printed on your ticket. Once you pay it, you will be admitting guilt.
Examples of moving violations include (but are not limited to):
- Improper passing
- Speeding 1 – 9 miles above the limit
- Improper turn
- Failing to yield
- Violation of right or left turns on red
- Following too closely
Tickets that do not show a fine are misdemeanors or felonies and will require you to appear in court and go through the criminal justice system.
Examples of these offenses include (but are not limited to):
- Speeding 20 mph over the limit, considered to be reckless driving
- General reckless driving
- Driving without a license
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
- Hit and run
- Driving without insurance
- Aggressive driving
