Traffic Offenses Can Be More Serious Than You Think

When most people think of traffic offenses, many associate the crime with traffic violations such as speeding or running a red light. While it is true that simple traffic violation tickets can ruin one's day, they aren't typically crimes that people associate with mandatory sentences, jail time, or personal consequences such as job loss. In some serious cases, however, certain traffic violations can result in jail time, suspension of a license leading to job loss, court fines, and increased insurance premiums.
