When a driver has a record of traffic infractions, they could face serious penalties if they are suspected of committing another traffic violation. Furthermore, if they are accused of a DUI, their record could be used to lessen or increase the consequences associated with this offense. No matter the situation, a driver should be aware of their defense options in order to reduce the impact the incident has on their personal and professional life such as a driver's license suspension or even jail time.
