Habitual Traffic Violators Committed to Winning Your Case

Habitual Traffic Violators: Defense Lawyer

Fort Wayne Traffic Ticket Lawyer

Traffic violations can result in an accumulation of points on your driving record. Each violation has a two, four, six or eight point value.

Excess points accumulated in a short time can result in penalties like:

  • Mandatory completion of a defensive driving program
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Cancelled insurance policy

What Are Traffic Violations and Points?

While it is generally true that points will drop off of your record after a three year period, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) keeps a complete summary of all of your violations. Even more important than the quantity of points received, are the types of traffic violations that occurred. Certain more serious violations over a 10 year period can result in the Bureau of Motor Vehicles determining that a driver has qualified as an Habitual Traffic Violator. These offenses include Operating While Intoxicated (OWI/DUI) or under the influence of drugs, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, driving without ever being issued a license, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, drag racing and felony offenses such as vehicular homicide.

If the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles determines you are an Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV) , your driver's license can be suspended for 5 years, 10 years, or for even suspended for life. Contact a Fort Wayne criminal defense lawyer immediately if you have been charged with a traffic violation that qualifies as an HTV offense. A proven traffic ticket lawyer can represent you in court and provide the effective legal counsel you will need when challenging the prosecution's case.

What Kind of Offenses Can Lead to a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV)?

According to Indiana Code 9-30-10-4, you could also be designated a Habitual Traffic Violator if you have accumulated at least three of the following judgments within 10 years:

Finally, you could also be designated a Habitual Traffic Violator if you have accumulated ten or more judgments within 10 years for any type traffic violation (except for parking tickets), and at least one of these judgments was for a violation previously mentioned. If you are in danger of being designated an HTV, it is highly recommended that you take immediate action.
