Traffic Violations

Never Just Pay The Ticket

In the course of an ordinary drive, you may violate any number of traffic laws in Virginia. Forget to signal a turn, fail to come to a complete stop or exceed the speed limit, and you could be stopped and be ticketed. But some traffic violations are more serious and carry significant fines, may lead to a license suspension or, for some drivers, cost them their job.

Maybe you were stopped for driving on a suspended license after a DUI or had too many speeding tickets. This is a very serious misdemeanor, and is just short of a felony charge. You could be fined up to $2,500. You never want to just "pay the ticket" before consulting an attorney.

You Can Lose Your License

Our lawyer, P. Scott De Bruin, can help you with any serious traffic offenses, like reckless driving, which in Virginia is any speeding ticket above 80 mph or 20 mph over the posted limit. This offense is a criminal misdemeanor and is as serious on your record as a DUI.

Just Passing Through Lynchburg?

Fighting a speeding ticket or reckless driving charge can become more complex if you were just driving the Route 30 corridor or are a professional driver passing through the area. Truckers are frequently stopped for being over-length or logbook violations. Our attorney can help you deal with these charges and may be able to handle your ticket without you needing to appear in court.

Demerit Points

In Virginia, you receive demerit points for many traffic violations, and many can stay on your diving record for up to 11 years. For commercial driver's license (CDL), some violations are lifetime, meaning you would never be able to legally drive in the state of Virginia again. Too many demerit points can cost you your license and your job. Every ticket is a threat to your livelihood and needs an aggressive response.
