Municipal code and traffic violation codes can be serious problems if not addressed or taken care of right away. The best way to deal with either of these violations is to consult with an attorney to learn about your rights. By learning about your rights, you can easily take care of violations before they get out of control.
Municipal law governs the cities and counties in California. To some extent, these laws govern school districts and local government entities too. Since municipal law varies greatly from one area to another, so do municipal code violations. If you are cited for a municipal code violation in the Los Angeles, San Bernadino, San Diego, or Riverside counties, you can count on Robert E. Levy to defend you in court. Robert E. Levy can also offer his legal advice regarding traffic violations too.
In the state of California, traffic tickets or citations are issued for various traffic law violations. Generally, the code number or statute associated with the violation are written on the ticket. Additionally, you will find a fee or date to respond to the ticket on the ticket itself as well. It is necessary to pay the fine on the ticket or appear in court. If you fail to appear, a warrant may be issued for your arrest, and your California driver's license could be suspended.
Law enforcement can issue a traffic ticket sometimes called an infraction without any evidence of criminal intent. All that is needed to write a traffic violation is proof that the infraction occurred. The most common California traffic violations are listed below.
Parking in handicap zones without proper authorization
Failure to use a turn signal
Overdue parking meters
More serious California traffic violations can result in a misdemeanor charge. Examples of charges that can result in more serious traffic violations include:
If you opt to pay a traffic violation without going to court, you're essentially being found guilty in the eyes of the court. Penalties for being found guilty of a traffic violation include:
Having offenses reported to the California Driver Safety Offices Receiving points on your license from the California Department of Motor Vehicles Increased car insurance premiums
Drivers who are cited for more serious violations such as drag racing, driving without a license, and driving under the influence will not have an option to simply pay the fine and be found guilty. Instead, these drivers will need to appear in court and can face serious consequences. For this reason, it is important for anyone that is convicted of a misdemeanor traffic violation to obtain legal counsel as soon as possible.
