The largest impact is often the ongoing insurance expense that results from a committed traffic infraction on your record.

Criminal Traffic Offenses
In addition to common infractions like speeding and failing to stop at a stop sign, there is a range of criminal traffic offenses that can result in more severe penalties, such as substantial fines, suspension or revocation of a driver’s license, and even imprisonment. Some examples of these criminal offenses include hit and run, reckless driving, and driving with a suspended license. Hit and run involves fleeing the scene of an accident after colliding with another vehicle or individual, and can result in imprisonment, fines, and loss of driving privileges. Reckless driving is charged when a driver endangers others or property due to careless operation of a vehicle and can result in a gross misdemeanor charge with penalties including up to one year in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, and a mandatory 30-day license suspension. Driving with a suspended license, especially if the driver has prior offenses or a prior DUI conviction, can lead to mandatory imprisonment, hefty fines, extended license suspension, and classification as a Habitual Traffic Offender with even harsher consequences.
