A Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Offense can have serious consequences on your license, your freedom, your criminal record and can cause high insurance rates with your car insurance. There are criminal Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Offenses and civil Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Offenses.
It is important to remember that driving is considered a privilege and is not a right. The Registry of Motor Vehicle (RMV) will be the first to remind you of this. They keep track of all of your motor vehicle offenses and will send it to other states, especially if your license is from another state. You likely will also see motor vehicle offenses from other states on your Registry of Motor Vehicle driving record.
If you are convicted of a criminal motor vehicle offense, the court can potentially send you to jail and/or put you on probation. Some Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Offenses can trigger a license suspension when you are convicted. The Massachusetts court you are convicted in will send notice to the RMV, and they will take action to suspend your license.
