This may include that of speeding tickets, parking tickets, etc., but overall, some type of vehicle violation. But how does one handle a parking ticket financially and with respects to their driver’s license points and insurance?
Different types of traffic tickets will results in different types of ‘punishment’. These may include that of fines, demerits or points on your driver’s license or the temporary removal of your driver’s license all together. The determination is based on the occurrence and the variables within – ie. weather conditions, driving under the influence, etc.
Within the United States of America traffic tickets are often regulated per state, county and/or municipal laws/ordinances. Most types of traffic tickets are divided into two separate categories. First, there are civil infractions. This type of infractions will often include violations such as that relating to safety belts, insufficient proof of insurance, registration or licensing, or non-moving violations.
Misdemeanors or Felonies fall under a completely different category, and often result in a far greater fine or punishment by law. These types of infractions include violations such as that of public safety, serious injury of another, death of another, damage to public property, etc. If convicted, one must often pay a hefty fine or in some cases serve a jail sentence of some length.
