A Criminal Traffic Offense differs from simple moving and non-moving traffic citations or violations. Criminal traffic offenses are actions or situations relating to the use of a motor vehicle which presents a great risk of severe personal injury or death, serious property damage, failure to abide by standing court orders, or the use of a motor vehicle during the commission of certain other criminal offenses.

Examples of criminal traffic offenses include, but are not limited to:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol;

  • Driving with suspended or revoked license;

  • Violating court approved hardship driving privileges;

  • Reckless driving;

  • Driving with an open container;

  • Having illegal drugs in the vehicle (drug possession, drug trafficking);

  • Leaving the scene of an accident;

  • Illegal street racing.
