Indiana Traffic Law
Drivers in Indiana are required to hold a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration, and insurance. In addition, licensed drivers are required to follow state traffic laws or they may be issued a traffic ticket by local police or state troopers. In addition to fines, traffic violations can result in a substantial increase in insurance premiums, loss of driver’s license, and criminal penalties.
Common traffic violations include:
- Reckless driving
- Driving with a suspended license
- Leaving the scene of an accident
Serious traffic violations can lead to penalties such as fines, license suspension, and even a jail sentence. If your driver’s license is suspended, your employment may be affected, since you won’t have a reliable form of transportation. It is important to contact an experienced traffic violations attorney in Indiana to protect your rights.
Habitual Traffic Violations
If you have multiple traffic violations in a 10-year period, you could be charged with habitual traffic violations. There are three categories for habitual violators, and conviction can result in a 5-year driver’s license suspension, 10-year suspension, or lifetime driver’s license revocation.
Drivers are often unaware that they have too many violations. I investigate each case to look for violations may result from being illegally stopped, having your rights violated during a traffic stop, or a lack of sufficient evidence to prove the violation.
