Traffic violations, also known as traffic crimes and moving violations, occur every day in Maryland, in fact, there is probably a traffic stop taking place somewhere in Maryland at any moment of any given day. Some of these traffic stops end in warnings, others result in tickets or citations for minor offenses such as speeding or the failure to display registration on demand. Most of the minor traffic violations in Maryland have payable options, but the payment of such tickets may result in points being assessed by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). Other traffic violations are more serious and require the defendant to appear in court to face charges and have potential penalties including jail time. If you have received one of these citations, please click here to contact our office at (410) 885-6200 to discuss options and schedule a free consultation.

Common Traffic Violations In Maryland
A serious traffic violation is pretty much anything more than a parking ticket. It can be any traffic crime, even if it is not an incarcerable offense (meaning you cannot go to jail for it) that can result in points on your license, a suspension of driving privileges, increased insurance premiums. Examples are:
Driving while suspended
Driving without insurance
Aggressive or reckless driving
Driving while revoked
Driving an unregistered vehicle
DUI, DWI or impaired driving
An accident causing injury, property damage or death
Leaving the scene of an accident
In many instances the challenging of even the most minor tickets will result in reduced penalties, including points with the MVA. There are unknown consequences to just paying tickets, such as points on your license, or the possibility of your insurance rates increasing. To discuss these potential consequences, and representation in your case call (410) 885-6200. You can also email our Elkton traffic violation lawyers by clicking here.
