Traffic Offenses Can Add Up To Criminal Charges

While one traffic offense may not seem like the end of the world, if the offense is serious enough or if you accumulate enough of them, there can be far-reaching consequences, even jail time. You want an experienced criminal defense attorney protecting your rights. The lawyers at Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP, aggressively protect the rights of individuals faced with traffic offenses. They can help you today.

Points On Your License Mean Something

If you have started to accumulate traffic points on your record, you may want to consider consulting an attorney before you are facing serious mandatory penalties. Running a stop sign may only add two points to your insurance, but a few violations can add up quickly, and you could even end up facing criminal charges.

Our attorneys handle a wide range of traffic offenses, some of which are misdemeanors, in California courts:

  • Reckless driving
  • Hit and run
  • Speeding tickets
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Driving on a revoked license
  • Negligent operation points
  • Drag racing
  • Exhibition of speed

In addition to the criminal aspect of your traffic offense, you will have administrative issues to take care of as well. The lawyers at Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP, will protect your rights at all corresponding DMV hearings, making sure to do everything they can to maximize your chances of retaining your license.

Noncriminal Traffic Offenses

You are allowed to accumulate 4 moving violations within 12 months before you may face criminal repercussions. You can receive up to 6 within 24 months and 8 within 36 months. However, once you have surpassed the limit for any given stretch of time, your license will be immediately suspended as a negligent operator.
