Defending traffic violations from speeding to DUIs
Violation of Ohio traffic laws may result in serious consequences. Speeding, drunk driving (DWI, DUI, OMVI), driving without a license, assured clear distance ahead (ACDA), reckless operation, vehicular manslaughter, and failure to control a vehicle are only a few instances.
Traffic violation convictions in Ohio can:
- Increased penalties for subsequent offenses
- Fines and increased insurance rates
- Jail or prison sentence
- Suspension of driver’s license
- Job loss
- Vehicle confiscation
- Ignition lock device installation
- Alcohol abuse assessment and treatment
- Criminal record
- Community service and probation
While speeding and other minor traffic offenses may only result in fines, serious violations are also criminal offenses. Violations carrying the stiffest penalties arise from repeat offenses as well as accidents that lead to death, or drunk driving charges such as driving under the influence, also called DUI, and driving while intoxicated or DWI.
