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.

Client Reviews
I hired Peter as my attorney for a very complicated case involving misidentification for an A&B case. Peter set expectations from day one and stuck to his plan. The case ended up going to a jury trial. Peter was thoroughly prepared and was able to prove the misidentification and won the case with a not guilty verdict on all counts… I would highly recommend the Bellotti Law Group to anyone who needs a lawyer.
★★★★★
Peter Bellotti is an outstanding lawyer. I am a professional who has never been in trouble with the law and I was arrested and charged under some very unfortunate circumstances. I was devastated and talked to numerous different high-rated criminal defense attorneys. Among them Peter Bellotti stood out, he seemed to genuinely care about my case and fully understand my concerns about my reputation… My case was dismissed and I would recommend him to anyone who needs top quality legal representation.
★★★★★
I am an anxious person by nature and when I was arrested last year I thought that my life was over. The charges were very serious and I felt helpless, devastated and embarrassed…After explaining the circumstances that led to my arrest, Attorney Bellotti told me that "the charges, while serious, were defensible…” Peter was the 4th lawyer that I met with and I am so lucky to have had him on my side. I will always be grateful to Peter and I would highly, highly, highly recommend him to anyone looking for an intelligent, creative, determined and skilled attorney.
★★★★★
