Points Carried by Common Virginia Traffic Offenses

If you have been charged with a Virginia crime, you will undoubtedly interact with a variety of professionals throughout the disposition of your case.  Each will play a critical role in how your case will be resolved.  Some of these professionals will be fighting for you, and others will be fighting against you…from the officer who may have arrested you all the way up to the judge or jury who may ultimately determine your guilt or innocence, the Commonwealth’s professionals take charged crimes seriously.  The professionals who will stay by your side and who will battle the Commonwealth’s attorneys for you are a call away at your local Virginia Beach Traffic Attorney’s office.  For directions and contact information, click here. 

Nobody wants “points” on your driving record.  Insurance rates are high enough, even with a spotless record.  Although many drivers receive tickets each year, you should always consider hiring a professional to represent you in court.  For a tailored analysis of your fact-specific case, you need to schedule a consultation.  Presenting each fact as you honestly remember it will ensure your best defense.  Your Norfolk Traffic Lawyer will explain to you at the outset that he is there to help, and nothing you reveal to him can be disclosed to another person, because the lawyer-client relationship is highly esteemed and respected in Virginia, meaning communications between you and your lawyer are privileged.  Moreover, if you don’t disclose certain facts when consulting with your attorney, the prosecution may use those facts to trip you up in court, and question your honesty or credibility.  Below, your Virginia Beach and Norfolk Traffic Attorney has provided you with an easy reference chart, displaying the number of points associated with some of the more common traffic offenses.
