Dallas Traffic Violation & Speeding Ticket Defense Attorney
There are many offenses classified as traffic violations in Dallas. Many Of them are known as moving violations; speeding, running a red light or going through a stop sign. They are treated more seriously if the driver is traveling many miles above the posted speed limit, or in a school or work zone. Other violations are non-moving, such as no drivers license, expired registration, lack of financial responsibility, (no liability insurance).
These “tickets” are filed in a myriad of municipal courts, city courts and Justice of the Peace (JP) courts scattered throughout the community.
Although the maximum fine for such Class C Misdemeanors is $500, there can be serious consequences if convicted of some tickets such as “points” leading up to a driver’s license suspension as well as “surcharges”. And whether you’re aware of it or not, traffic violations do count as a criminal matter, meaning you have the same constitutional rights as in any other criminal proceedings.
