Because being charged with a non-criminal traffic violation carries lesser consequences than a criminal traffic offense, many people find themselves overlooking or forgetting about the infraction as they go about their busy lives. What these people do not realize is that failure to pay the imposed fine or show up on the designated court date may make matters even worse.
Failure to pay the imposed fine or failure to appear in court can be serious enough to leave lasting consequences, such as the potential suspension of your driving privileges, increase of insurance rates and potential for jail time if you are pulled over for driving on a suspended license.

Non-criminal traffic violations may include, but are not limited to:
Moving Violations such as:
- Careless driving
- Failure to yield
- Improper lane changes
- Driving during restricted hours
- Child restraint violations
- Illegal U-turns
- Stop sign or traffic light violations
Non-Moving Violations such as:
- Seat belt Violations

Points against your drivers license are typically added for moving violations. While these traffic infractions typically do not carry the possibility of jail time, they may still carry substantial fines. Traffic violations may also cause your car insurance rates to go up and may result in a driver’s license suspension if you have multiple offenses.
Depending upon the citation, your driving history, and any special circumstances relating to the alleged traffic infraction, a guilty verdict may result in:
- Hefty fines
- Potential jail time, if pulled over while your license is suspended
- Suspension of your driving privileges
- Having your license revoked
- Potential vehicle forfeiture, if pulled over in the act of committing certain crimes
- Community service
