Listings in Traffic Violations

A traffic violation or moving violation is any violation of the law committed by the driver of a vehicle while it is in motion. The term "motion" distinguishes it from other motor vehicle violations, such as paperwork violations (which include violations involving automobile insurance, registration and inspection), parking violations, or equipment violations.

Types

While some violations, like parking violations, are civil matters involving a vehicle's owner, moving violations are charged against the actual driver.

Moving violations are usually classified as infractions or misdemeanors, but serious violations such as hit and run, driving under the influence, and road rage can be considered felonies.

Examples of moving violations

  • speeding, which can be exceeding a limit or -in some jurisdictions- simply driving an unsafe speed
  • failing to maintain an Assured Clear Distance Ahead (ACDA)
  • running a stop sign or red traffic light
  • failure to yield to another vehicle with the right-of-way
  • failure to signal for turns or lane changes
  • failing to drive within a single lane
  • crossing over a center divider, median or gore
  • driving on the shoulder where it is considered illegal under certain conditions
  • failure to use a seat belt
  • illegal use of window tints and obstructions
  • failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk
  • failure to stop for a school bus when children are boarding or exiting (in certain jurisdictions)
  • failure to secure a load to a truck or lorry
  • driving in a car pool lane illegally
  • operating a telecommunications device while driving (in jurisdictions that prohibit this)
  • driving a vehicle outside the conditions of one's license
  • driving without a license or with a suspended license

More serious moving violations include:

  • driving under the influence
  • reckless driving
  • street racing
  • vehicular homicide
