What You Should Know
In Massachusetts, like most other states, driving is a privilege and not a right. When you violate state mandated driving laws, you are committing a motor vehicle offense. Most motor vehicle offenses are categorized as infractions or misdemeanors, but that does not mean that these offenses should be taken lightly. All motor vehicle offenses should be regarded as serious due to the legal penalties and consequences that are involved.
You can loose your license under the following circumstances: civil motor vehicle infraction, criminal motor vehicle offenses, drug convictions, motor vehicle accidents.
Penalties for Motor Vehicle Violations and Crimes:
Motor vehicle offenses often result in fines or driver’s license penalties. However, in cases involving serious motor vehicle offenses, a conviction can result in far more severe consequences, including: jail time, large fines, community service, probation, and driver’s license suspension. Additionally, charges and sentencing can be enhanced if the person has been convicted of prior motor vehicle offenses, if the person caused bodily harm to another person, or if the person caused extensive property damage.
