Types of Motor Vehicle Offenses in Connecticut

There are several different types of motor vehicle offenses in Connecticut. Some of these include: driving under the influence (DUI), reckless driving, speeding, failing to obey traffic signs or signals, unsafe lane changes, distracted driving, failure to yield right-of-way, and following too closely (tailgating). Depending on the severity of the offense and whether you have a prior record of similar charges, the penalties associated with these infractions vary widely.

Seeking legal advice from an experienced attorney who specializes in motor vehicle offenses is essential when navigating this complex legal system so that you have all the information necessary before making any decisions about how best to proceed with your case.

Penalties for Motor Vehicle Offenses in Connecticut

Penalties may be anywhere from a fine to jail time. Additionally, you may face an increase in your insurance premiums, as well as points added to your driving history. For some more serious offenses, such as DUI or reckless driving, jail time may also be a possibility. Additionally, a judge may order probation or driver’s education classes as part of your sentence. You may also face revocation or suspension of your license if you are found guilty.

It is important to note that these penalties can greatly vary depending on your individual circumstances and any prior convictions you may have had for similar charges. It is also important to remember that these penalties can affect both your personal life and professional life. For example, if you are convicted of a DUI offense in Connecticut, you could face up to $8,000 in fines and up to three years imprisonment. A conviction could also result in loss of employment due to incarceration, as well as significant increases in insurance premiums due to the criminal conviction on your record.

You Need a Lawyer to Defend You Against Traffic Tickets

If you receive a traffic ticket in Connecticut, it may be possible to contest it and have it dismissed by appearing before a judge or prosecutor at trial. Before deciding whether or not to contest your ticket, however, it is crucial that you contact a lawyer who can help you evaluate the laws associated with your particular violation so that you can properly prepare for court.

If you decide that going to court is worth the effort and expense, have your lawyer review all evidence thoroughly ahead of time and bring any relevant documentation, such as photos or video recordings, that might help support your case.
