Traffic Offenses and Moving Violations
Traffic offenses and moving violations come in a variety of forms, some serious criminal offenses, and others traffic violations. DUI/DWI, speeding, and reckless driving are examples of these crimes. Most traffic offenses are classified as violations.
What consequences am I facing if convicted of a Traffic Offense or Moving Violation?
It is important to note that Oregon doesn’t use a point system. The state does, however, log your moving violations and if you receive multiple convictions in 18 months, you may be facing a license suspension. You may also be facing a license suspension if you violate the Driver Improvement Program.
If you hold a Commercial Drivers License (CDL), you must notify your employer within 30 days of a violation. These violations can have a serious impact on your career.
The maximum fine for a violation committed by an individual is:
(a) $2,000 for a Class A violation.
(b) $1,000 for a Class B violation.
(c) $500 for a Class C violation.
(d) $250 for a Class D violation.
