Santa Clarita Traffic Violation Lawyer
Find the Right Attorney to Fight Your Charges
The rate of drivers in the U.S. has been growing exponentially, and as the number of drivers have increased, so have the number of accidents. This is why the state of California has set strict rules governing the road. Those who neglect such regulations can be pulled over and given a ticket that can lead to other consequences, such as jail time, fines, and a suspended license, if not promptly addressed. At Lias Law Firm, we are determined to get to work on your defense as soon as you retain our legal services.
Criminal Charges & Traffic Violations in California
While there are certain offenses in California that may be designated as minor infractions, others could be charged as either felonies or misdemeanors, depending on the situation. These cases face much higher consequences in terms of potential jail sentences and/or higher fines.
Some examples of serious traffic violations include those involving:
- Driving with a license that has been revoked or suspended (California Vehicle Code Section 14601)
- Committing the felony of a hit and run (California Vehicle Code Section 20001)
- Being involved in any form with a speed contest (California Vehicle Code Section 23109(a))
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a))
Not only could you receive a large fine and face extended jail time, but your license could also be suspended or even revoked. Prosecutors in Southern California treat such traffic violations extremely seriously, you need experienced legal guidance on your side as soon as possible.
