Our leading traffic attorneys in Santa Ana represent drivers who face any California Vehicle Code violation, including:
The penalties for traffic infractions vary considerably and are based on the seriousness of the alleged offense. Substantial fines, increased auto insurance premiums, license suspension, and jail time can result from a traffic violation. If you receive a ticket, either one or two points are added to your DMV record. If you accumulate four points in one year, six points in two years, or eight points in three years, the California DMV could suspend your license.
Most drivers pay their traffic tickets and deal with the associated penalties. However, many tickets are issued when the case against them is not strong. That is why it is crucial to consult with a knowledgeable attorney. One of our attorneys in Santa Ana could carefully review the specifics of the traffic citation and any applicable laws to determine a course of action to fight the charge. We could represent you in court and negotiate effectively to have the case dismissed, avoid or reduce fees, keep points off your DMV record, and keep you behind the wheel.
Commercial drivers are held to a higher standard and any traffic infraction can severely impact their driving privileges. These drivers not only represent their employer; they are operating a much larger, more potentially dangerous vehicle. If you are a commercial driver and violate the California Vehicle Code, you run the risk of losing your driving privileges and losing your job. Common infractions include driving under the influence, speeding, being involved in a hit and run, receiving a weigh station ticket, and failing to use the designated lane.
