Tampa Criminal Defense Attorney - Jenkins Law Criminal Traffic Violations


Traffic Violations Jenkins Law

Almost every U.S. driver commits a minor driving offense at one point or another. These minor driving offenses often result in small financial fees and traffic citations. However, there are certain driving offenses that are categorized as criminal traffic violations. These violations range in severity from reckless driving to vehicular homicide, and unfortunately many drivers may be unaware of the criminal consequences these offenses carry.

Being charged with a criminal traffic violation can result in a person facing life-long consequences, depending on whether they are convicted and the severity of the crime with which they are charged. While this can be extremely frightening and overwhelming, a person charged with criminal traffic violations should know that they have rights that must be protected under the law and that they have the opportunity to defend themselves in court.

Examples of Common Criminal Traffic Violations

Typically, criminal traffic violations are considered to be more severe forms of breaking  Florida’s traffic laws. As such, acts that can result in a criminal charge include:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident
  • DUI / DWI
  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Street Racing
  • Possession of Controlled Substances in a Vehicle
  • Driving with a Suspended License

These and other criminal traffic violations can result in hefty fees and life-altering penalties. Penalties can range from having your license suspended, to paying state mandated penalties, to facing serious repercussions through years in imprisonment.  Anyone facing a criminal traffic violation should keep in mind that a charge is not a conviction, and with the help of a skilled attorney like Jim Jenkins of Jenkins Law, you may be able to get your charges reduced or dropped.
