Take The Right Course Of Action With Your Traffic Violation

Traffic tickets should receive the same level of attention any criminal charge would get. This is your life — protect your best interests.

Who doesn't get that sinking feeling in the pit of their stomach when they see the red and blue flashing lights of a police officer? We all have. And while they might not be pulling you over for drunk driving every time, they could be pulling you over for a variety of traffic violations that can lead to steep fines and time in jail if you're not careful.

The wait-and-see method doesn't work with Minnesota traffic violations. Police aren't going to give you a deal or simply dismiss the charges against you. You have to take an active role in your future, and Kaess Law, LLC, can help you do just that.

Levels Of Offenses In Minnesota

Traffic violations fall under four different categories in our state:

  1. Petty misdemeanors: Technically not considered a crime, petty misdemeanors often result in a fine of up to $300. These typically do not affect you if you are on probation. (Example: speeding)
  2. Misdemeanors: These types of offenses are crimes and can lead to a fine of up to $1,000 and up to 90 days in jail. (Example: driving on a suspended license)
  3. Gross misdemeanors: Criminal convictions can lead to up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $3,000. (Example: driving with a .16 BAC or higher)
  4. Felonies: Imprisonment of more than a year. (Example: multiple DWI convictions)

Fines and jail time aren't the only penalties associated with traffic violations, however. You may also face an administrative citation such as the suspension of your license.

Take Every Violation Seriously

You need to take every traffic violation seriously because you can bet police and the Department of Motor Vehicles will. If you are deemed a habitual offender, you could lose your driving privileges or worse, face steeper penalties later on.
