Major Traffic Violations in Ohio: Criminal Justice Experts Outline What Your Rights Are January 12, 2015

Major Traffic Violations in Ohio: Criminal Justice Experts Outline What Your Rights Are, Hamilton, Ohio

When it comes to laws regarding traffic violations in Ohio, things can become confusing quickly. But being aware of your state’s laws—and your rights—is half the battle in the world of criminal justice, and that’s where the Law Office of Gerald M. Wirsch comes in.

The term “reckless driving” is more expansive than most people might think. Even if you’re only swerving your vehicle playfully, for example, or simply tailgating, you can be charged with reckless operation of a motor vehicle. Possible repercussions of  a reckless operation charge include a license suspension, fines, and even jail sentences.

The penalties associated with leaving the scene of an accident are even more severe. In the state of Ohio, fleeing the scene of a fatal accident is a felony. And, if you’re driving under the influence of alcohol or other illegal drugs, the fallout—especially for multiple offenses—can range from thousands of dollars in fines, to years in prison.

What should you do if stopped? You should roll down your window, turn off your engine, and keep your hands in plain view at all times. If an officer smells any alcohol or sees any kind of an alcoholic beverage in your car, he or she automatically has the right to search your vehicle. It’s also important to note that you must stop any and every time you are pulled over; failure to do so will result in even more severe charges.

All this said, people still make mistakes—and when they do, the Law Office of Gerald M. Wirsch is there to give them a second chance.  Gerald Wirsch is also a respected divorce attorney, adoptions attorney, and probate attorney, and he has considerable experience in criminal justice cases. Thus, you know you’ll be getting the full package when you seek out his services.

Don’t let traffic violations ruin your future, or someone else’s! To find out more, call the Law Office of Gerald M. Wirsch at (513) 858-9281 today.
