Dedham Motor Vehicle Crimes Lawyer

Traffic violations are often deceiving. What may seem like a minor offense such as speeding or a mechanical violation can actually lead to expensive fines or the suspension of your license.

Of course, with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) citing motor vehicle accidents as the cause of death for more than 40,000 people in 2007, not all motor vehicle crimes are considered minor.

Let John DeVito defend you

If you have been charged with a motor vehicle crime, you have rights too. With 30 years of experience in criminal law, attorney John E. DeVito, Esq., ensures your rights are protected.

The police take moving violations seriously - so should you

Being charged with a motor vehicle crime can lead to serious consequences. A speeding ticket may seem like a minor infraction, but receive three of them in one year and your driver's license will be suspended for 30 days. As the severity or frequency of the violations increase, so do the penalties. A skilled defense attorney can help ensure that your rights are protected and, if possible, that you do not receive the maximum sentence.

Moving violation penalties:

  • 3 speeding tickets in one year: 30-day suspension
  • 5 tickets or accidents within three years: complete a remedial driving course
  • 7 tickets or accidents within three years: 60-day suspension and complete a remedial driving course
  • 12 moving violations or 3 major moving violations ( OUI, accident, etc.) within five years: 4-year suspension
