Some people think they do not need an attorney to represent them when they get a traffic ticket or are arrested for a traffic crime. However, even if you have no prior violations, a traffic conviction could be the basis for increasing penalties for future violations or increasing insurance rates. Indeed, reckless driving tickets remain on a driver's Virginia driving record for 11 years.
Additionally, some traffic offenses, like reckless driving charges and driving on a suspended license, can result in jail time if there are multiple convictions. Penalties for DWI or impaired driving of any kind are particularly severe, especially if there has been an accident causing personal injury or property damage. In addition, collecting multiple tickets in a short period of time, even if relatively minor, could cause the Virginia DMV to suspend your driver's license.
