FREQUENTLY ASKED DWI QUESTIONS:
Q. What is a DWAI?
A. One possible resolution of a case is having the charge reduced to what is called “driving while ability impaired,” which is an infraction and not a crime. An individual convicted of driving while ability impaired will still face certain penalties, such as up to 15 days in jail and various fines and surcharges; however, there will be no criminal record. It's important to meet with an attorney if you're charged with DWI to see if your charge can be reduced to driving while ability impaired to prevent you from having a criminal record.
FREQUENTLY ASKED TRAFFIC TICKET QUESTIONS:
Q. What are the Penalties for Speeding?
A. Points for speeding start at three points for one to ten miles per hour over, and they can go up from there to four, six, eight, and even eleven points. That's important because, if you receive 11 points in 18 months, your license will be suspended. Also, points levied against your license will impact the rate you pay for your insurance. If you are cited for speeding, it's important to hire an attorney to attempt to reduce those points – or even have them removed altogether.
