Minor Traffic Offenses
Let’s face it: Most of us get a traffic ticket at one time or another. That doesn’t make it a pleasant experience, and it can negatively affect your driving record, insurance rates, and in some cases lead to a license suspension.
Driving While License Suspended or Revoked
Any number of circumstances can lead to your license being suspended or revoked. Unfortunately, in most cases (but not all), if you’re cited for driving on a suspended or revoked license, you will be prosecuted for a misdemeanor, which is a criminal offense, potentially carrying jail time of up a year and/or required community service.
Speeding over 26 MPH
If you’re ticketed for speeding more than 26 MPH over the posted speed limit, you’re no longer facing a simple speeding ticket: you’ll be prosecuted for a misdemeanor, which is a criminal offense.
Maybe you left your license at home or forgot that it expired last month. In those cases, you’ll likely be charged with a petty offense. But if your licensed is expired for more than a year, or if you’ve never had a drivers license issued, the charge becomes a misdemeanor.
