Civil Traffic Offenses vs. Criminal Traffic Offenses
In Civil Traffic Offenses, the most important thing to avoid is the accumulation of points on your license. In Criminal Traffic Offenses, the most important thing to avoid is acquiring a criminal record and possible jail time.
Civil Traffic Violations
Civil Traffic Offenses are civil infractions which result from the violation of state, county or municipal laws or ordinances. Most importantly, Civil Traffic Offenses do not directly result in jail time or incarceration, but instead generally require the payment of a fine, accumulation of points on your license, and/or your attendance at traffic school. An accumulation of too many points on your license may actually result in the suspension of your driver’s license or its possible revocation, as well as a dramatic increase in your insurance premiums.
Criminal Traffic Violations
Criminal Traffic Violations are serious violations of federal, state, county or municipal laws or ordinances that may result in a misdemeanour or felony charges. These violations tend to involve multiple prior offenses, wilful disregard of public safety, damage to property, or death and/or serious bodily injury to others. Most importantly, if you are found guilty of a Criminal Traffic Violation, jail and/or prison time is a serious possibility. Other possibilities include acquiring a criminal record, paying a hefty fine, or community service.
