Passionate Criminal Defense Attorneys

Depending on a driver’s level of experience, the availability of insurance coverage, previous violations or criminal history, and even immigration status, a speeding ticket or other traffic violation could carry very significant consequences.

Common traffic violations include:

  • Speeding

  • Improper lane changes

  • Tailgating

  • Running stop signs

  • Uninsured driving

Everyone knows that they’re supposed to follow the rules and regulations of the road, but many clients view getting a traffic ticket as simply one of those unfortunate and inevitable events in life. Whether to speed while driving on Massachusetts highways, interstates, and residential roads has unconsciously become a cost-benefit analysis for many drivers. The penalties of a violation, however, can be severe.

Penalties for traffic violations may include:

  • Severe fines

  • Loss of driving privileges

  • Jail time

  • Increased insurance premiums

If the offense is serious enough, the insurance company may even drop your coverage. Traffic violations are more serious than most people think. Our Worcester criminal defense lawyers can explain the consequences of the charges pending against you and devise a plan of representation that is unique to your particular set of circumstances.

Common Misconceptions About Traffic Violations

Mistakenly, many drivers assume that they can get away with going five or ten miles per hour over the posted speed limit. Never assume that this is true, especially in residential neighborhoods where police officers spend increased time on patrol. If caught speeding in a residential area, the driver might also be charged with reckless driving, which may adversely affect the driver’s record and insurance premiums.

In addition, clients seem to underestimate the consequences of “rolling” through a two or four-way stop intersection. This traffic rule, however, regulates the flow and speed of drivers and ensures safe crossings for pedestrians. A charge for running a stop sign can also be aggravated by causing an accident with another vehicle that has the right-of-way, hitting, injuring, or killing a pedestrian, talking or texting while driving, or proceeding out of turn.

In addition, lane changes made without signaling or made in the middle of an intersection are considered violations.
