A Criminal Traffic Offense differs from simple moving and non-moving traffic citations or violations. Criminal traffic offenses are actions or situations relating to the use of a motor vehicle which presents a great risk of severe personal injury or death, serious property damage, failure to abide by standing court orders, or the use of a motor vehicle during the commission of certain other criminal offenses.
Examples of criminal traffic offenses include, but are not limited to:
Unlike a simple traffic citation or violation which you pay a fine and are awarded points on your drivers license, a Criminal Traffic Offense may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony crime, and if convicted, the you may be awarded a term of incarceration in a county jail or state prison.
Criminal Traffic Offenses may be charged as a Misdemeanor or Felony Crime depending upon the offense, your prior criminal history, and other relevant circumstances, including additional evidence collected after a full investigation has been conducted by law enforcement.
