Howard County Teen Drivers and Traffic Charges

Howard County teenage drivers, like teen drivers everywhere, are more likely to take risks than other motorists when driving; more likely to text while driving; and more likely to speed than other drivers. Most teen deaths occur in car crashes between 3 p.m. and midnight. That’s why the Howard County Police offer various educational programs like collision avoidance training, and classes to prevent teenage drivers from drinking and driving.

Unfortunately, many teen drivers in Howard County still receive traffic charges for speeding, reckless driving, violation of alcohol restriction, and drunk driving, including DUI and DWI. A conviction of any traffic charge might result in loss of a provisional driver’s license. Even though a teenager is charged with a traffic violation in Howard County, they still need an experienced traffic ticket lawyer to defend them. In many cases, it is the parents who end up bearing the brunt when their teenager loses a driver’s license and a parent must drive their child back and forth to school or to a job.
