Non-Moving Violations

Posted on 01 July 2011 by admin

Do not result in an assessment of points upon conviction:

Examples include

  • illegal parking,
  • excessive vehicle noise,
  • equipment violations,
  • no seatbelt, etc.

Although many traffic offenses may not carry the same penalties as more serious crimes, even lower-level offenses can result in significant fines, loss of privileges, and increased insurance rates.

And the more serious offenses, or even some less serious violations if they are part of a series of violations by the same offender, can result in imprisonment. Thus, traffic charges should not be taken lightly. An attorney at The Traffic Stop STL in St. Louis, Missouri can explain the possible consequences of the various violations and represent those charged with traffic offenses throughout the resolution of the matter, taking some of the mystery out of the process and increasing the chances of the least serious outcome.

In most states, no particular criminal intent is required to convict a person of a minor traffic offense. This concept is sometimes referred to as strict liability. The only proof needed is evidence that the person charged actually committed the prohibited act. For example, if there is reliable evidence of speeding, it need not also be proven that the driver intended to exceed the speed limit; it rarely matters for liability purposes if the speeding was inadvertent or purposeful. Strict-liability traffic offenses typically include such violations as failure to use turn signals, failure to yield, turning into the wrong lane, driving a car with burned-out headlights, failure to use towbars when towing another vehicle, parking next to a yellow curb, parking in a handicap spot without the required permit, overdue parking meters, and exceeding the speed limit.
