Collecting evidence, writing what occurred at the time of the event, and securing names and contact information of eyewitnesses should be done as soon as possible after an incident or event involving your vehicle. The aforementioned information is critical in preparing your case. The police often make mistakes in documenting what occurred. They also do not have your interests in mind, neither does the other party or either of your insurances. A criminal traffic offense is materially different than a traffic infraction in that any finding of guilt may lead to time in custody.
"$300 versus $155, I’ll pick $155. I have lived in Seattle for over 25 years, and I have never heard of an attorney charging less than $300 for a traffic ticket. Until now, and he is super nice too!"
TYPES OF CRIMINAL OFFENSES
Hit and Run.
This is a criminal offense in which a driver causes vehicular assault and subsequently abandons the scene of the event. Custody, fines, loss of your license are all on the table if you are convicted. And if you haven’t connected the dots, custody also means jail.
Is the result of an individual that operates a motor vehicle in a negligent manner which poses a danger and disregard for the safety and property may be liable for a reckless driving charge. The criminal traffic offense may result in time in custody, fines, and loss of the privilege of driving, however, those sanctions may be enhanced if the driver is found to have operated while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs – legal or illegal.
Driving with a Suspended License.
Regardless of the why the initial license was suspended, a history of sanctions has begun and the additional charge of driving while his or her license is suspended, custody, fines, and additional time added to the suspension or full revocation may result.
