Traffic Violations

Traffic violations may be punishable with fines, suspension or loss of driving privileges, mandatory classes, community service, and jail time for more serious offenses in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. While most traffic violations result in citations that are nothing more than an inconvenience, other violations carry serious consequences depending on the nature of the charge(s). Minor violations left unhandled and/or compounded with other violations can also have serious consequences.

No matter what the charge(s) may be, you need an attorney who is experienced in handling traffic violation cases and who has an extensive understanding of criminal law to represent your best interests and to help you understand your options for an intelligent defense. Our practice regularly handles traffic violation cases including:

  • Traffic tickets
  • Construction zone tickets
  • Seat belt violations
  • Disregarding a traffic control device
  • Aggravated speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Hit and run
  • Driving without a license or with a suspended license
  • Driving without insurance or with insufficient insurance
  • Driving without registration or with expired registration
  • Unlawful vehicle modifications

Depending on your driving history and the severity of the charge(s) you may be facing, we are often able to achieve one or more of the following results in traffic violation cases:

  • Reduction or elimination of required court appearances resulting in less stress and less time in court
  • Amendment or dismissal of charge(s) resulting in lowered or eliminated fines
  • Reduction or elimination of points on license resulting in no increased insurance cost

It is important that you treat each violation seriously and that you do not attempt to represent yourself in court regardless of the severity of the traffic violation charge(s). Failure to respond in a timely and appropriate manner can have a significant impact on your life and your driving privileges in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

We can help you understand your options depending on the individual circumstances of your case when facing traffic violation charge(s). If you’d like to learn more about how we can help, contact us to set up a free consultation.
