Numerous traffic offenses can also carry the potential for jail sentences.
Driving Without License, No Insurance, Reckless Driving, and Racing on Highways all carry possible jail sentences along with hefty fines.
Convictions for offenses such as Reckless Driving have serious consequences on your license and insurance requirements.
If you are charged with a criminal traffic offense, you should consult with an attorney so you can be aware of all the consequences.
Often times the prosecutor will make you an offer at court which sounds reasonable. While they tell you they will only ask for a small fine, they typically do not mention all the other collateral consequences to your conviction.
I strongly recommend that you consult with an attorney before accepting any plea offers from the prosecutor. Always remember one thing, the prosecutor is NOT looking out for your interests.
