Motor Vehicle Infractions
Have you been ticketed in Connecticut? Traffic tickets are infractions that do not require a court appearance. Instead of appearing in court, the person who has been ticketed can choose to pay the amount due by mail or in person. These infractions may also be called moving violations, and they can carry insurance and licensure consequences.
If you have been ticketed for a moving violation, you should talk with legal experts to discuss your options and make an informed decision on how to handle that ticket.
What Are Common Infractions?
In Connecticut, motor vehicle violation tickets that you may be charged with include:
- Operating a cell phone or texting while driving
- Failure to stop for a school bus
- Failure to obey traffic control signals or running red lights
- Reckless driving
- Evading responsibility
If you plead guilty to an infraction, you face a host of consequences, including incurring points against your driving record, increasing your insurance rates, or mandatory driving retraining. This is why it is important to consult with an attorney when you get a ticket.
