DWI & traffic court

Traffic violations not only include minor infractions and fines, multiple misdemeanor offenses may result in more serious charges against you, and modern legislative trends indicate that certain crimes receive harsher punishments in the future. Common violations receive more attention in the legislature include:


  • While impaired (DWI or DUI)
  • Unlicensed Operators
  • Driving without a license or with a suspended or revoked license (DWLR)
  • Violation of car rental agreement
  • Driving without insurance or without adequate coverage
  • Negligent, careless or reckless driving
  • He fled, or leaving the scene of an accident
  • Not giving in
  • Running a stop sign or red light
  • If you do not move out of Emergency Vehicles

Payment of the fine = GUILTY

More minor violations cannot expose yourself to jail time, but simply pay the fine is an admission of guilt, often resulting in a sharp increase in the cost of insurance (three 3 years) and a possible suspension of his license for thirty 30 days or more.

In addition, some seemingly minor violations “traffic” may constitute “criminal offenses” as a reckless and careless driving, driving while license revoked, etc. And therefore will appear on your criminal record forever (if the application for school, university, job, background checks and possibly even credit applications.

Dates cut loss – lose your license

Generally, after twenty days following the date of lost court (20) days, your information will be entered into a national database used throughout the country. This means that even after we help in resolving an issue of pending traffic or old, you probably must pay a fee of “return”.

Also, in North Carolina, after an individual acquires a certain number of points on your record, you receive a driving while license revoked charge or while impaired driving, you may lose your driving privileges for a period of time.

License permanently revoked

In addition, some individuals who may have had a run of bad luck, and have accumulated several DWIs DWLRs or may have had their license “permanently revoked.” But “permanent revocation” does not necessarily mean forever. After a period of time, you may be eligible for a hearing before a DMV hearing officer (judge) and can assist you in trying to restore their driving privileges. Depending on your record, you can have certain stipulations imposed, such as certain lead times, alcohol / drug assessment and treatment, a lock system in your car, or other provisions.
