Legal Representation against Virginia Traffic Offenses
There are serious consequences associated with any violation of the traffic laws in Virginia. For example, driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor punished by fines and possible jail time if you are convicted. You could also receive an additional suspension of your license.
Under a demerit points system it uses to evaluate drivers, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles assigns points ranging from three to six depending upon the severity of the traffic violation. If you accumulate too many points, the DMV has the power to take away your driving privileges.
The points associated common traffic law violations include:
- Three points: Speeding 1-9 mph above speed limit, driving too slowly, improper passing, improper U-turn and a right turn on red violation
- Four points: Speeding more than 10 mph above posted speed limit, unsafe passing and failing to yield the right of way
- Six points: Speeding more than 20 mph above posted speed limit, DUI, and driving with a suspended license
