Traffic Offenses Run From Minor To Very Serious—But All Of Them Come With A Cost
Just about everyone has experienced that dreadful, sinking feeling of seeing red flashing lights behind them as they drive down the street or highway. Sometimes you know exactly what you will be cited for: failing to come to a complete stop, speeding, running a red light, or making an illegal lane change. At other times you are mystified: Did I miss a stop sign? Is one of my tail-lights out? Maybe you had a drink or two and are worrying whether you were driving erratically without even knowing it.
No matter what the answer is, you know it is going to cost you. Even the lowest fines for traffic infractions—when combined with fees and surcharges can be significant, depending upon the offense and whether there are enhancement factors, such as committing a violation within a highway construction zone.
At Crosland, Rapaport & Graham, we understand the gravity of traffic offenses and the impact these penalties can have on your life. We also know that, for most, driving privileges are all but essential: to go shopping, to get to work, and to drop off and pick up children at school or the doctor’s office. For some, a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record is a prerequisite for employment.
If you are facing traffic offense charges, contact Crosland, Rapaport & Graham. While we cannot promise to make every charge disappear, we can give you expert assistance to overcome either all or the worst consequences of their traffic offense charges.

Consequences beyond the Fine
If the offense amounts to a traffic-related misdemeanor or felony, fines can easily run into the thousands—and may accompany even more severe penalties, such as:
|License suspension or revocation||Installation of an ignition interlock system|
|Community service;||Compelled classes or treatment|
|Probation; and even||Jail time|
Even more, many offenses put points on your driving record that can cause your insurance rates to skyrocket
