Alexandria, VA, September 11, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- As experienced drivers know, the many rules of traffic law can contain as many twists and turns as the road itself. If you are a Virginia resident, one of the more serious offenses against traffic law is driving on a suspended license in VA. What makes driving on a suspended license so easy to do is that a license suspension can happen for a number of violations, and some of these violations do not even need to happen while driving. All you need to do is forget to pay child support or drive after letting your car insurance lapse, and the state could suspend your license. Thankfully for local residents, Alexandria VA traffic defense lawyer at Brown Law Firm PLLC has expanded his legal services into this area.
There are many reasons why someone's license might be suspended. These include:
- Being convicted of reckless driving.
- Having a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) level beyond the legal limit while driving a vehicle.
- Refusing to be tested by breathalyzer test if arrested for a DUI.
- One's driver's license has accumulated too many demerit points.
- Not paying jail fees, court fines, child support, judgments for car accidents, etc.
- Driving a vehicle with an invalid or inactive insurance policy, or no insurance at all
The state of Virginia considers driving with a suspended license a Class 1 Misdemeanor, so getting convicted of this offense has serious consequences: as much as a year of jail time, a fine up to $2,500, plus the cost of getting your license reinstated. The penalties increase dramatically to a 10-day to a one-year jail sentence and a $2,500 fine if you are convicted of driving with a suspended license three times in a ten-year span. That is why it is wise to have a traffic defense lawyer to examine your case, its the relevant facts, and to develop a viable defense. Brown Law Firm PLLC has extensive experience in traffic defense, it is please to now offer its services to clients in Alexandria who may face a conviction for driving with a suspended license.
