Legal Defenses for Driving Crimes

This defense works for hit and runs. If you weren’t the one driving, then you can’t be charged with a hit and run.

This is a common defense for driving with a suspended license. You have to have known that you were driving with a suspended license to be guilty of this crime.

Insufficient evidence can work as a defense for a lot of driving crimes. If the prosecution doesn’t have enough evidence that you committed a driving crime, you should not be guilty of one.

Have you been legally accused of committing a driving crime? If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, it is essential to obtain legal council for help. It’s important to take your charges seriously. Don’t just hope for the best. Hire an attorney who understands your situation and the consequences you face.
