What to Know About Alabama Traffic Offenses 

Certain traffic violations in Alabama are only infractions and are not considered criminal. These violations include things like tailgating or failing to stop at a red light. Others are much more serious and can result in significant criminal penalties. 

Examples of these offenses include:

  • DUI
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Fleeing the scene of an accident
  • Attempting to elude law enforcement
  • Vehicular homicide 

Traffic Tickets

You may receive a traffic ticket for infractions and criminal offenses. Timely responses to tickets are essential. Failing to appropriately respond to a ticket could result in increased fines and an arrest warrant (in the most severe situations). 

For felony criminal traffic violations, such as a fourth DUI, you will have to appear in court. You have a right to retain an attorney during this process. It is advantageous to have legal representation, as a lawyer can help you make informed decisions about your case. 

Driver’s License Points

Traffic violations can result in points on your driver’s license. For example, speeding no more than 25 mph over the limit leads to two points. As another example, a DUI conviction can come with six points. 

If you accumulate a certain number of points in two years, your license may be suspended for a pre-determined time. 

Below are the state’s point ranges and associated license suspension periods:

  • 12-14 points: 60-day license suspension
  • 15-17 points: 90-day license suspension
  • 18-20 points: 120-day license suspension
  • 21-23 points: 180-day license suspension
  • 24+ points: 1-year license suspension
