Traffic crimes are essentially criminal offenses while operating a motor vehicle that places the public at significant risk of physical danger, cause the death of another, or that may cause significant property damage.

Criminal Traffic Offenses often involve, but may not be limited to:

Depending on the evidence gathered against the accused, specific traffic crime, and sometimes the accused prior criminal history, a traffic crime may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, ranging in conviction penalties from probation to a term of imprisonment not to exceed life in prison.

If the Traffic Crime is for Driving Under the Influence, you only have 10 days from the date of the DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing with the department of motor vehicles. At this point you may request to be granted hardship driving privileges while you are involved in the legal process of defending yourself against DUI charges.

Many people assume that if they are charged with a Traffic Crime it is an automatic conviction. This is not true.
