Salt Lake City Traffic Attorneys

Criminal defense lawyers handling speeding ticket and other traffic violation cases

Some people fail to remember that traffic infractions and moving violations are criminal charges, and that the penalties resulting from them can therefore be considerable. A conviction may result in points on your license, hefty fines, temporary suspension or loss of your license, or even jail time. At Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen, our experienced Salt Lake City traffic lawyers understand that you need to retain your privilege to drive, and we fight to keep your driver’s license in good standing, minimizing any restrictions or suspensions. We defend all types of traffic-related offenses and also represent commercial truck drivers with CDL licenses.

Types of violations

In Utah, law enforcement officials such as state troopers issue citations for a vast array of moving and non-moving infractions. These include the following:

  • Careless driving
  • Driving with an expired or suspended license
  • Drunk driving/DUI
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign or light
  • Failure to properly yield right of way
  • Fleeing the scene of an accident
  • Hit and run
  • Parking in front of a fire hydrant or in another illegal zone
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Speeding in a school zone
  • Street racing

Why consult a speeding ticket?

If you are stopped for speeding, you may think the best thing to do is just pay the ticket and be done with it. But actually, most traffic attorneys in Salt Lake City will advise you to dispute the charge. There are a number of reasons to fight a ticket, even though it likely means being required to appear in court. First, in winning, you save not only the cost of the ticket, but also potential additions to your long-term insurance rates. Second, no points are deducted from your license if you win. In fact, even if you lose and have to pay the ticket, your Salt Lake City speeding ticket lawyer can probably help you get the deducted points reinstated.
