Traffic crimes are specifically addressed in California Vehicle Code statutes. The complex body of law that regulates the operation of motor vehicles on the streets and highways can be difficult to interpret and apply. Examples of traffic crimes include "reckless driving", "road rage", "drag racing", and "driving on a suspended driver's license". All carry mandatory fines and penalties and some include the imposition of jail time and mandatory suspension periods.
Driving with a Suspended License
Driving with a suspended or revoked license is considered a crime, and can result in heavy fines and possible jail time. At worst, it may be considered a felony, and the offender could end up in state prison or with an obligation to perform many hours of community service. The penalties are typically heaviest if the license suspension or revocation was the result of a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI), which will require jail time and certain convictions will require the installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for a period of three years at a cost of nearly $100.00 a month.
