Traffic Tickets: Moving Violations
Just as it can be guessed by its name, a Moving Violation Ticket includes any traffic violation committed during the time the vehicle is on the move. The main difference between the first two categories of traffic tickets is that while a non-moving traffic ticket is directed to the vehicle and is not that serious, the moving violation ticket is charged against the driver of the vehicle and it comes under a serious category because it may involve a heavy fine.
You may be charged with a moving violation ticket if you’re speeding (especially near schools or in residential areas); breaking traffic lights; driving too slow for your lane; not stopping for a pedestrian in a crosswalk; and so on. Driving while you are drunk or vehicular homicide are more serious forms of violations and they fall into this category.
If a driver is caught violating the traffic rules and if he is charged with a moving violation ticket then the following things are likely to occur:
- The driver may be ordered to re-take his driver’s test
- The driver’s driving license may be cancelled
- Heavy fine may be inflicted; this may then lead to challenging the ticket in a law court
- The violation is included in your driving record
- Your insurance company is reported against it
