In Texas, a traffic violation can subject you to expensive fines, substantial increases in insurance rates (or even loss of coverage), and ultimately the loss of privilege to drive if you are assessed a number of points against your license. Commercial drivers (CDL) are at risk of losing their jobs in some instances if they receive even one conviction!
Commercial Drivers are at risk because Municipal and Justice Courts by law cannot offer probation or a Driver Safety course dismissal. These cases must either be postponed for trial or be prepared for trial or appealed to County Court to seek relief.
All drivers are subject to paying annual surcharges to the state to keep their license if they acquire more than six (6) points in any three year period.
