Drivers in North Carolina may be stopped by law enforcement for various reasons. When drivers are suspected of a traffic violation, our firm understands that individuals fear how it will affect their lives and driving abilities. In some cases, a traffic violation could lead to serious penalties, especially if a misdemeanor charge resulted from the incident or violation. Because serious consequences could result, such as a revoked or suspended driver's license, harsh fines and even jail time in some instances, drivers should be aware of their defense options in order to reduce or eliminate the impact that the charges could have on their lives.
Even when a traffic violation appears to be very minor and could have little impact on the life of the driver, even a simple traffic violation can result in the loss of a driver's license. If, for example, the driver has previous violations on his or her record, these violations can quickly add up and lead to costly fines and a suspended license.
