The moments after you get a traffic ticket in Virginia can be scary and confusing and you may have a lot of questions:

  • Why does my ticket say I have committed a Class 1 Misdemeanor?
  • Why do I have to go to court for a speeding ticket? Can't I just mail in a fine?
  • What is this ticket going to do to my driving record?

DUIs and Traffic Offenses are taken very seriously by the Commonwealth of Virginia and it is important to educate yourself about the state's legal process.
