Traffic Violations In Indianapolis

People typically think of traffic tickets and violations as a minor slap on the wrist. However, traffic violations are taken very seriously by the state of Indiana, and obtaining too many of them can lead to the temporary
or permanent suspension of your driver’s license. A traffic violation could possibly result in a criminal record, hefty fines or jail time.

Whether you decide to pay or contest the ticket in court, the attorneys at Hayes Law Office are experienced at handling all traffic matters and are here to assist you with any of the following:

  • OWI resulting in bodily injury or death
  • Speeding
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • HTV/felony traffic offenses
  • Driving offenses
  • Criminal recklessness

The Experience And Knowledge To Protect Your CDL

A traffic violation can put your commercial driver’s license (CDL) at risk. Without it, you stand to lose your career entirely. Even if you do recover your CDL after losing it, many companies will not hire drivers who have infractions on their records. Lawyer Philip Hayes has 18 years of experience defending the rights of commercial drivers in Indianapolis and throughout the state.

Attorney Hayes knows the tendencies and preferences of local law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, judges and others. Preparation, experience and focus are the keys to Mr. Hayes’ record of successful outcomes for his clients. He examines every detail of your case thoroughly to gather necessary evidence, poke holes in the district attorney’s allegations and put up a strong fight.

CDL Offenses In Indiana: What To Know

The penalties against commercial drivers for a traffic offense are much more serious than for private drivers. You could have to pay fines in the thousands of dollars, attend driving classes, spend time in jail and permanently lose your privilege to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV). The following offenses could result in the state issuing an out-of-service order, disqualifying you or revoking your CDL:

  • Speeding more than 15 miles over the limit
  • Reckless driving
  • Texting while driving a CMV
  • Operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI)
  • Operating a CMV with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of at least .04%
  • Making a fatal traffic control violation
  • Driving a CMV without a license

Keep in mind that you do not necessarily have to commit one of these offenses in a commercial vehicle to face consequences. Even if you were in your personal vehicle, your career as a driver could suffer – especially if you have previous traffic convictions in your past. It is critical to work with an experienced criminal defense and traffic violations lawyer if you are CDL holder who is accused of a traffic violation.

Let Hayes Law Office Fight For You

Many people feel as though they can handle their traffic violation on their own in traffic court or by simply paying the fine. This may not always be the best decision as having too many violations can result in a suspended license, which can lead to the criminal offense of driving while suspended. It is therefore essential that you consult with an Indianapolis traffic defense attorney who has your best interest at heart.
