Felony & Misdemeanor Criminal Traffic Citations

Some traffic violations are more serious and result in stiff penalties, even incarceration. In most cases, traffic infraction are relatively minor matters. But if a traffic violation results in injury, death or serious property damage, a simple misdemeanor can quickly become a felony offense. Some traffic violations are considered quite serious in their own right, like drunk driving and unlicensed vehicle operation. You should treat your traffic crime seriously. We can help you understand and move through the process.

Tony Rollman can help you with any traffic violation you may have. Traffic crimes and infractions, also called moving violations, include:

  • DUI / DWI / drunk driving
  • Reckless, aggressive driving or unsafe movement
  • Street or highway racing
  • Hit and run / leaving the scene of an accident
  • Vehicular homicide, manslaughter or negligent homicide
  • Hit and Run / Property Damages
  • Driving with a revoked or suspended license
  • Invalid operator license, insurance, registration, and/or inspection

  • Failure to stop or yield the right of way
  • Failure to move over, obey emergency vehicle signals
  • High occupancy vehicle lane (“HOV”) violations
  • Improper equipment

  • North Carolina DMV Hearings

Traffic charges should not be taken lightly. While traffic violations do not always have the same penalty or reputation consequences, they can result in significant fines, loss of driving privileges, and increased points with both DMV and your insurance carrier. More serious violations can result in incarceration, as can a series of less serious violations by the same offender, which have a cumulative effect.

If you have had your driving privilege suspended, whether for reckless driving, driving while your license is revoked, we may be able to help you reacquire limited driving privileges. You don’t necessarily have to compromise your life for the entirety of your suspension. North Carolina does recognize that you have to work and continuing caring for your family and your personal needs. These should not suffer because you made a bad decision or mistake. We can evaluate your situation and let you know exactly where you stand.

We can explain the consequences of your violation, and help to ensure your driving privileges and status suffer the least damage. Many times, we are able to have charges dismissed. In fact, in some cases we are able to avoid the necessity of your appearance in court. When that is not possible, Tony Rollman is skilled in negotiating lesser charges and consequences. Tony is, first and foremost, a criminal litigator and is always prepared to take a case to trial to fight the administrative and criminal consequences of traffic violations.
