In the state of Maryland, traffic offenses can have a hugely negative impact on your life. And with over four million licensed drivers on Maryland roads according to the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), the likelihood that you will be involved in a traffic offense in some manner is high.
If you find yourself in this situation, you need a Maryland Traffic lawyer that is experienced in dealing with traffic offenses. With over 20 years of experience, The Law Office of Hillel Traub can help you traverse this challenging time.
Given the wide variety of potential charges that can come up during a traffic stop, it helps to know the more common types of traffic offenses that Maryland drivers are faced with:
Because the circumstances surrounding each case are different, it is vital that you contact one of our experienced Harford County traffic attorneys as soon as possible to ensure that they have a firm understanding of your case. This will also ensure that they create a comprehensive plan of action regarding the steps that will need to be taken to reach an outcome that you can be satisfied with.
Not only are there a wide variety of different traffic offenses in Maryland, potential charges can also range in severity. Typically, Maryland traffic offenses are split into two different categories: minor, which are the least severe, and serious, which obviously carry heavier penalties. Minor traffic offenses, codified by the Transportation Code of Maryland, usually include:
Even though a minor traffic offense won’t lead to jail time, you will still likely have to pay a fine or face points being taken away from your license.
Not surprisingly, serious traffic offenses are punished more severely by the court system. Leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, or driving while impaired, for example, can all carry punishments of jail time on top of any fines levied. Usually, the maximum jail time tops out at one year, while the maximum fine is usually $1,000. In addition, points will be added to your driving record, causing an increase of insurance premiums and the potential loss of your driver’s license.
Fighting any offense on your own is a difficult proposition, but trying to represent yourself against a Maryland traffic violation is even more difficult. On top of the complexities of the law, you have to factor in the potential cost of facing the charge-or charges-on your own. Even with attorney fees, having a skilled, experienced Harford County traffic lawyer will potentially save you hundreds to thousands of dollars in the long run. They do this by saving you time from an efficiency standpoint.
