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.
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.
