A traffic violation is an infraction of a non-criminal nature which involves actions or other situations regarding your vehicle. Traffic violations, unlike criminal traffic offenses, typically involves moving violations which have the potential to cause harm or injury to others, motor vehicle safety law violations, or parking ordinance violations.
Traffic violations are commonly referred to as a traffic ticket, speeding ticket, traffic citation, or traffic infraction. Regardless of what the violation documentation is called, even a non-criminal traffic violation can affect your life in various ways.
If found guilty, the fine may be substantial, you may be subjected to points on your driver's license, have your insurance rates go up, be ordered to attend and pay for a driver's education program, or even have your license suspended or revoked.
Common non-criminal traffic violations which may be moving or non-moving violations include, but are not limited to:
It is important to know that during the course of a simple traffic stop, the law enforcement officer may ask you for permission or impose his authority to search your vehicle under the assumption of probable cause, or administer field sobriety tests if they suspect you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In some situations, this may lead to potential criminal charges, depending upon what they find, or their personal perception of your sobriety.
