Traffic Violations Can Have Serious Consequences
Moving violation citations may seem petty, but left ignored, they could lead to serious consequences, including costly auto insurance, driver’s license suspension, high fines or jail time. Depending on the nature of your job, you could even lose your job if you do not keep a clean driving record.
I, defense attorney John J. Balenovich, am prepared to work to help you fight to keep your driving privileges.
Do Not Disregard The Seriousness Of Traffic Violations
At best, they may be expensive and time-consuming inconveniences; at worst, they can land you in jail. If you acquire several traffic violations, the penalties you face will increase in severity with each conviction.
Because West Virginia has a point system for driving records, you could lose your driver’s license if you exceed 20 points. Points stay on your driving record with the Department of Motor Vehicles for two years, but the record of the offense remains for five years.
