Traffic Fines and Punishment

Generally, a traffic ticket is a minor offense known as an infraction, but too many tickets in a short period of time can be serious and result in the suspension of a driver's license. Drivers who receive a ticket are often given the option to attend traffic school to reduce or even eliminate fines and punishments, but a person usually only has the option of attending traffic school once a year. FindLaw's Traffic Fines and Punishment section provides information about the traffic ticket point system, fighting a traffic ticket, and when going to traffic school is a good idea.
