Human beings are fallible. If we weren’t, we’d be machines! We make mistakes on a daily basis, after all. Most mistakes may be simple, such as misspelling someone’s name or waking up ten minutes late. Other mistakes can lead to negative consequences. Even young children have a grasp on what’s right and wrong and they still make mistakes. In general, our mistakes don’t tend to lead to many consequences. That’s a completely different scenario when we make a mistake while driving. Below, we will outline the most common traffic violations and their consequences. If you’re facing issues relating to traffic tickets, give Aaronson Law Firm a call!

Understanding Points

If you have a driver’s license, you passed a driving test and fill out all the requirements. As such, you know that green means go and red means stop. You’re also well aware of speed limits and school zones. But there comes a time in every driver’s life when they feign ignorance and go over the speed limit or drive through a stop sign. Since there aren’t police officers on every single street, many drivers tend to get away with these common traffic violations. But when a police officer (or traffic camera) spots a moving violation, the driver will most likely get pulled over and receive a ticket. A ticket for a moving violation also results in points on your driving record. These points work against you and can lead to increased insurance costs and even license suspension. A lawyer can help take care of points on your record.

Most Common Traffic Violations

Not every moving violation translates to the same amount of points, however. Speeding less than 10 miles per hour of the speed limit, for instance, will result in two points added to your driving record. Careless driving, speeding from 11-15 miles over the limit, or failing to stop for a school bus can result in three points. Driving 16 mph or more over the limit will lead to four points. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, evading a police officer, reckless driving, and felony with a motor vehicle all lead to six points.
