Ready to Help You Avoid Serious Penalties for Traffic Violations

Did you know that simply paying off a traffic ticket really means admitting guilt? Not only are you subject to a fine, but also points on your driver’s license that could result in license suspension and increased insurance premiums.

Protogyrou Law can determine if there are any available defenses that apply to your case and help you avoid serious penalties.

If you have been accused of a traffic offense, consult our Norfolk traffic court attorney without delay. Tell us about your traffic violation by filling out our secure online form or call (757) 267-6611 now.

Criminal Traffic Offenses vs Traffic Infractions

Virginia law distinguishes traffic offenses from traffic infractions.

Infractions are considered less serious and have milder penalties. You may get a traffic ticket for an infraction, but it will not result in a criminal record, and you will not be sent to jail. Paying a fine will keep you out of court. Too many infractions in a certain period of time may cause your license to be suspended.

Criminal traffic offenses are treated with more serious consequences, and they will appear on your background check if you are found guilty.

Below are examples of each.

Criminal Traffic Offenses Traffic Infractions
  • Driving with a revoked license
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving under the influence
  • Third DUI (felony)
  • No auto insurance
  • Driving with an open container of alcohol
  • Reckless driving
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Eluding
  • Failure to get or update a license
  • Aggressive driving
  • Hit and run (can be charged as a felony)
