Washington, D Traffic Lawyer Near Me
The nation’s capital is filled with history and several sites you don’t want to miss. However, the sheer number of drivers on the roads can also make it easy to ignore traffic laws. You may be speeding up to pass a slower-moving vehicle, forgetting to signal a turn, or coasting through a stop sign while admiring the White House. Even though it’s easy to forget to obey all traffic laws, this isn’t an excuse that’s going to get you out of a traffic ticket if your driving behavior is noticed by D.C. police. If you’re searching for a traffic lawyer near me in Washington, D.C., contact Morgan & Morgan for a free case evaluation with one of our specialists.

Understanding the Point System in Washington, D.C.
While you can receive a traffic ticket for any number of moving and non-moving violations, two are the most common in the D.C. area. Speeding and reckless driving tickets are common, and both can come with stiff penalties. Washington, D.C. traffic laws are clear on speeding and reckless driving penalties.
Potential Penalties for Speeding Violations
- 1-10 miles over the speed limit = a $75.00 fine and two points
- 11-15 miles over the speed limit = $125.00 and three points
- 16-20 miles over the speed limit = $150.00 and four points
- 21 or more miles over the speed limit = $200.00 and five points
Potential Penalties for Reckless Driving Violations
- Fines up to $1,000.00 and loss of driving privileges
- Several points on your driving record
- Higher insurance premiums
- Possible jail time
You are legally allowed to have up to 12 points on your driving record, but anything over results in an automatic suspension of your driving privileges. You should also expect to see your insurance rates increase. Your auto insurance carrier may even decide to cancel your policy. Before letting this happen, contact Morgan & Morgan. We have over 35 years of experience fighting for our client’s legal rights.
