Traffic Law

Traffic law covers the rules and regulations involved with operating a vehicle on public roads. This includes both moving violations, such as speeding or reckless driving, and non-moving violations, like parking illegally or driving with an expired license. Penalties can vary widely depending on the severity of the offense and the state it took place in. 

Whether you are facing fines, points on your driving record, loss of driving privileges, or jail time, Almagno Law can help ensure you receive fair treatment.

Speeding. It’s no surprise that the most common moving violation is speeding. Be sure to take note of speed limits, especially in residential neighborhoods and city roads where they may change frequently. Being mindful of your speed can also help you to avoid reckless driving and accidents caused by driving too fast.

In most states, a traffic infraction can’t result in jail time. Potential penalties generally include a fine, traffic school, and demerit points on the motorist’s driving record. Accumulating a certain number of points can result in increased insurance premiums and license suspension.

The two are the same thing: a citation or a ticket is a document explaining that you committed some traffic offense type, like speeding. A citation is more serious than a ticket in some places. However, a citation requires you to appear in a court of law while a ticket can be paid.
