Are Traffic Violations Misdemeanors?

Are Traffic Violations Misdemeanors?Drivers are often taught the basics of California’s traffic code while in driving school, but few are given the chance to understand some of the minutiae that makes up state and federal traffic laws.  This includes many of the names that are given to charges and has many drivers wondering, is traffic violation a misdemeanor?  Here is a look at just a few of the charges that the attorneys from Traffic Ticket Justice will be able to assist you with.  

Traffic tickets are broke down into three classifications: infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies.  Each of these charges come with a loose definition of what types of tickets are placed into each category.  Infractions are generally the mildest of charges that a law enforcement officer will hand out and could not cause injuries or any damage to property.

A misdemeanor traffic violation is classified as any actions that could potentially lead to the injury of a person or damage to property.  Examples of these include going through a red light, speeding tickets, DUIs, reckless driving, or failing to stop at the scene of an accident.  These charges come with steep fines and will put 1 to 2 points on the driver’s record.  This will lead to increased insurance premiums and will set an individual on their way towards a license suspension.  Various misdemeanor traffic violations, such as a DUI or DWI, could also lead to time in county jail and an immediate license suspension.  The final charge is a felony and will require a full criminal trial in a court of law.
