Bucks County Traffic Offense Lawyer

Most drivers can identify with the feelings of anxiety and dread most experience when they see flashing lights in their rearview mirror and hear the tell-tale police siren. Even when you know that you have done nothing wrong, there is a certain unmistakable sense of dread as the officer approaches your vehicle. Unfortunately, the law enforcement officer may interpret the events he or she witnessed differently than you. You may end up receiving a traffic citation or, in other circumstances such as a DUI, being arrested by the officer.

However, you do not have to face the officer or a judge on your own. Dedicated and aggressive representation can result in a reduction or dismissal of the charges or violation you face. A Young, Marr & Associates attorney can stand up for you and your rights.

Traffic Tickets and Violations Our Lawyers Handle in Bucks County

When you receive a traffic ticket, you are actually receiving a citation. Citations for moving violations can include:

  • Exceeding the maximum speed limit
  • Reckless driving
  • Improper or erratic lane changes
  • Tailgating
  • Running a red light
  • Avoiding a traffic control device

The citation will contain a brief statement of the facts surrounding the incident, the law that was allegedly violated, and instructions for your future actions. While specific circumstance will vary and you should consult with an experienced attorney prior to taking action, must citations require some action within 10 days of its issuance. You may:

  • Plead guilty and pay the fine
  • Plead not guilty and request a hearing

If you fail to respond you may be subject to arrest or your driver’s license may be suspended.

Did You Get a DUI in Bucks County, PA?

Being charged with a DUI can be particularly upsetting and anxiety-inducing due to the harsh penalties potentially including jail time and the suspension of your driver’s license. While we cannot change the events that led up to your DUI charges, we can provide aggressive and strategic representation to protect your freedom and ability to drive.

In Pennsylvania a DUI can be charged if a chemical test reveals a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or above. However those with a high-BAC (between .10% and .159%) or highest-BAC (.16% or greater) are subject to more stringent penalties.

For example, a first-time DUI with A BAC of .09% would qualify as general impairment DUI which is the lowest level. As a first-time DUI a crime of this type represents the least harsh punishment possible for a DUI. You are likely to face an upgraded misdemeanor for a DUI of this type. The upgraded misdemeanor could carry penalties of a $300 fine, up to 6 months of probation, and alcohol treatment. In contrast a 1st offense with a BAC of .17% will lead to more stringent penalties because of the level of intoxication. In these circumstances the individual could face a license suspension for 1 year, up to 6 months in prison, a fine between $1,000 and $5,000 and alcohol treatment.
