Judge Gavel With Old Law Books In The Background
Traffic tickets and other traffic offenses can cost you money and time and may even result in a revocation of your driving privileges. Hiring an experienced Ohio attorney may help you lessen the consequences.

Traffic Offense Penalties

Ohio follows a point system — the more traffic offenses you have, the more points you will accumulate. Points collect against your license and your driving privileges. Violations can include:

  • Six-Point Violations
    • Vehicular homicide
    • OVI/DWI
    • Hit-and-Run
    • Fleeing law enforcement
    • Drag racing
    • Driving while your license is suspended
    • Using a vehicle to commit a felony
  • Four-Point Violations
    • Driving with disregard for the safety of others
    • Under-age OVI/DWI
    • Exceeding the speed limit over 30 mph
  • Two-Point Violations
    • All other moving vehicle violations

The penalties for speeding depend on how far over the speed limit you were going. Penalties range from two to four points.

The points will stay on your driving record for three years. If you accumulate six points in a two-year period, you will receive a warning from the BMV. After 12 or more points, the BMV will suspend your license for six months.

If you are caught driving with a suspended license, you could be charged with a first-degree misdemeanor which could result in a $1000 fine, six month in jail, or both. Your license may also be suspended for another year.

Drunk Driving Defense

Drunk driving is a far more serious crime than a traffic offense. You could face heavy fines, jail, license suspension and court-mandated intervention programs.
