When you receive a traffic ticket, you should understand the different implications of a traffic citation verses a more serious criminal traffic charge. In Virginia, a traffic ticket may actually contain an allegation of a criminal offense which, if convicted, results in criminal penalties. Criminal penalties can include jail, steep fines and license suspension.
There are also collateral consequences of a criminal traffic conviction which can affect simple things like renting a car or something more serious such as your security clearance or employment. A traffic citation may also carry with it other consequences which you may not fully appreciate without speaking with a lawyer. We can answer your questions about traffic violations.
