No Traffic Violation Is Routine.
DUI/DWI Lawyers Atkinson Law Will Take It Personally.
Atkinson Law. We Are Family.
You may hear them called “routine” traffic violations. People get pulled over for traffic violations every day, right? They're not criminals, they're average people rushing from place to place. It could be a soccer mom, a grocery cashier, or a local hospital worker. It could be someone in your family. No big deal, right? It's probably a speeding ticket or a moving violation because they ran one of the endless red lights in Harford County to avoid having to wait a full two minutes for it to turn green. Everybody does it, right? Then, you just show up at traffic court and plead your case, right?
Actually, sometimes traffic violations are bigger issues. Speeding, reckless driving or moving violations are cause for concern, especially if you are not a first-time offender. No traffic violation comes without consequences – it could be points on your driver's license, fines, increased insurance rates or license suspension. DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while impaired), are also very serious.
