Traffic Violations in Olathe

The best time to ensure that a moving or traffic violation stays off your record is before you pay the ticket. In Kansas, once the ticket is paid, it counts as a conviction on your driving record. As convictions for such violations are reported to the state, your insurance company, and possibly your employer, will have access to that record. Common examples of traffic or moving violations in Kansas include:

  • Driving with a suspended drivers' license
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Minor in possession or consumption of alcohol
  • Transporting an open container
  • DUI/DWI
  • Driving without insurance

Convictions on such violations can have very negative consequences, including raised insurance rates, restricted driving privileges, or even difficulties with your employment. If you have been charged with a traffic violation, contact an Olathe criminal lawyer right away, so that you can be informed of your rights and obtain qualified legal assistance.

Legal Help for your Traffic Violation

A traffic violation conviction can be more serious than one might think. As with many other states, Kansas traffic laws state that if you commit three misdemeanor traffic or speeding violations, your license can be revoked for at least six months. The penalties can become even more severe if driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs was involved. The aftermath of such an ordeal can prove very difficult for one to endure, as their employment may be affected, and their driving privileges as well.
