Criminal traffic law

In principle, criminal traffic law can affect anyone who drives a motor vehicle. It covers all punishable violations of traffic regulations that pose a danger to other road users or can lead to serious accidents. Factors like alcohol, drugs, or medication often play a significant role.

When it comes to traffic offenses, an ill-considered admission to the investigating officers can quickly lead to dire consequences. The consequences and penalties in criminal traffic law should not be underestimated. Depending on the severity of the offense, the penalties range from fines to several years imprisonment. Criminal traffic law proceedings also involve driving bans, ordering medical-psychological examinations ("MPU"), or revoking the driver's license.

Therefore, if you are facing criminal traffic law proceedings, it is essential to consult a criminal defense lawyer before making any statement to the police. The lawyer can review the files, assess the criminal and traffic law risks, commission expert opinions, and develop a promising defense strategy.

Examples of criminal traffic law:

  • Driving without a license
  • Unauthorized removal from the scene of an accident
  • Endangering road traffic
  • Prohibited racing
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Misuse of license plates
  • Revocation of driving license
