CRIMINAL TRAFFIC CASES
Criminal Traffic Cases
Criminal traffic cases [Driving While Under the Influence (DUI); Driving While License Suspended (DWLS), reckless driving, etc.] are more serious than civil infractions and require a court hearing. Penalties may include jail time, but most sentences in criminal traffic matters involve the payment of fines and court costs. The completion of a rehabilitative program and/or traffic school program may also be required. Also, suspension of your license is a possibility, depending on the violation and/or the number of points on your driver’s record during a given period of time. You will receive a notice in the mail listing the time, date and court location of your hearing. If you fail to appear in court, a bench warrant will be issued and that could lead to your arrest.
