Why Traffic Tickets Are Worth Fighting

Many people view traffic tickets as a minor legal hassle, but in fact, the situation could be far more serious than that. Certain traffic offenses are misdemeanor crimes. Depending on the charge and your driving record, a ticket for speeding, reckless driving or another traffic offense could result in driver’s license suspension or even time in jail.

At Coates, Battle & Tyree, our attorneys have extensive experience defending clients in traffic courts throughout Virginia. We are here to protect your driver’s license, your pocketbook and your freedom.

Handling All Types Of Traffic Violation Cases

It is not uncommon to be pulled over on area interstates and highways for reckless driving, speeding and other violations. Interstates 95, 295 and 64 are all perilous places to drive.

Our attorneys know the traffic court system in Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanover counties and throughout surrounding areas and are here to guide you to the best possible result in this legal matter. We defend clients against a broad range of traffic charges, including:

  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving (DUI/DWI)

  • Impeding traffic
  • Improper passing
  • Improper U-turn
  • Running a red light
