Habitual Traffic Offender Label & It’s Repercussions

Habitual Traffic Offender Label

Being characterized as a "Habitual Traffic Offender" by the Registry of Motor Vehicles has a wide range of consequences for motorists. If the RMV determines that you are a "Habitual Offender," your license can be revoked for four years. Based on your poor driving record, this is an automatic revocation. Generally speaking, you should do all you can do to fall into the HTO category, or you could be facing a license suspension of 4 years.

I was referred to Attorney Bellotti by a friend who works at Harvard University. I was really nervous at the beginning of my case but Peter kept me calm and was very reassuring and even gave me his cell phone number to text or call him if I really needed to get in touch with him asap… My case went extremely well and my family and I could not have been more please. I highly recommend Attorney Peter Bellotti. Beth A.
