Traffic Crimes Proven in the Courtroom, Where It Matters Most.

Dickson County Traffic Crime Defense Attorney

Fighting for You in Tennessee Criminal & Traffic Courts

Almost everyone has received a traffic ticket at one time or another. Most of these tickets are considered citations, which involve demerit points added to your driving record and as well as monetary fines. Once you pay your fine, your traffic ticket case is closed because you have essentially pleaded guilty to the offense. Other traffic offenses, however, can be more serious resulting in misdemeanor charges. These types of charges can be contested in court with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the laws, how to gather evidence, investigate and analyze the information, and who can do all this to challenge the charges before a judge. If you wish to keep a criminal charge off your record, avoid fines and/or other penalties, you can turn to Belmares Law, PLLC.

What are Traffic Crimes in Tennessee?

Traffic offenses that will result in criminal charges in Tennessee can include:

  • Speeding, generally charged as a Class C misdemeanor

  • Reckless driving, charged as a Class B misdemeanor

  • Drag racing, charged as a Class B misdemeanor

  • Reckless endangerment, charged as a Class A misdemeanor

  • DUI, charged as a misdemeanor or felony depending on if you have previous convictions

  • Leaving the scene of an accident, charged as a Class C misdemeanor

  • Driving without a license in your possession or having never obtained one, charged as a Class C misdemeanor

  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license can be charged as a Class B misdemeanor

  • Vehicular manslaughter, charged as Class B felony

Penalties can include fines, court costs, jail time, probation, points added to your driving record, suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, and increased car insurance premiums.

Class C misdemeanor convictions carry penalties of up to 30 days in jail and fines of up to $50. Class B misdemeanors carry penalties of up to six months in jail and/or fines of up to $500. Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to a year in jail and/or fines of up to $2,500. Felonies are punishable by more than a year of imprisonment along with fines. Beyond this, you will have a permanent criminal record that can be a distinct disadvantage in the future when applying for employment, housing, professional licenses, or educational aid.

Examples of points added to your driving record when convicted of a traffic crime or citation include four points for speeding 16 up to 25 miles per hour above the posted limit, eight points for the misdemeanor of reckless endangerment by vehicle, six points for license violation, and eight points for driving with a canceled license or fleeing law enforcement. If you accumulate 12 or more points within a one-year period, your license can be suspended by the Tennessee Department of Safety.
