Any driver must comply with certain laws in regard to the operation of his or her motor vehicle. If you have been accused of any type of traffic violation, it is important to consider working with an attorney experienced in handling this type of case in the Philadelphia area. There are numerous individual violations that may be considered traffic offenses that are listed under the vehicle code with the
PennDOT, and the effects of any of these may impact you in different ways, including the time and money that these situations often involve. A traffic ticket alone may result in heavy fines, points on your driving record, license suspension and increased insurance costs. The consequences of a criminal traffic offense are much more serious, as imprisonment is a possible penalty the court may impose.
