DMV Legal Help and Lawyers Guide by DMV.com

Driving isn't a luxury, but a responsibility in life. Sometimes, we make mistakes that we certainly did not intend to happen. Mistakes, like traffic violations, are not to be taken lightly. They have the potential to cause serious problems, such as licence suspensions, criminal charges, and fines. Not to mention, they will be costly.

ARE DUI CHARGES AND REGULAR TRAFFIC TICKETS THE SAME?

NO! There are major differences between a DUI and a regular traffic ticket. A DUI is much more serious and it can also carry criminal charges that are separate from driving related penalties - so we recommend immediate legal attention especially when the violation will bring you close to losing your licence. It is wise to consult a DUI lawyer for more detailed information regarding local laws and regulations and help in your defence. It should be well worth the peace of mind to get the opinion of an experienced lawyer before proceeding on your own.
