Citations are often issued in lieu of arresting a defendant for C-misdemeanor infractions of Tennessee traffic law. These traffic tickets are usually issued for violations such as speeding, bypassing a traffic control signal, failure to yield, using a cell phone while driving, and following too closely.
A conviction for such an offense may result in points being added to your driving record, a fine, court costs, and possible revocation of your driver’s license. The schedule of points for certain traffic violations are provided on the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security website that is below.
Convictions for traffic violations may also trigger higher insurance premiums under certain circumstances.
Our experienced attorneys can assist commercial vehicle drivers for typical citations for commercial vehicles such as light violations, log book errors, bypassing scales, and exceeding the weight limit.
