Hawaii Traffic Violations

Traffic violations are criminal acts that violate the rules of driving. Most violations are considered minor infractions. They usually won't have serious consequences. However, some violations, such as driving while under the influence, can be considered major criminal offenses. Also, minor violations can have serious consequences if there are several infractions over a short period of time. These violations can lead to fines, license suspension and even jail time.

 Many traffic laws cover actions before getting behind the wheel, such as obtaining a valid driver's license or getting required insurance. Other laws cover actions while driving, such as speeding and turning. There are also laws that cover actions after driving, such as waiting for law enforcement after an accident. Although there may be some subtle differences, most states have similar laws that cover the most common traffic violations.
