In the State of Maryland the number of points you receive when convicted of speeding depends on how fast you were going over the posted speed limit:
- Between 1 & 9 mph over the speed limit - 1 point
- Between 10 & 29 mph over the speed limit - 2 points
- 30 mph or more over the speed limit - 5 points
Most drivers will be cited with at least one traffic violation in their lifetime; many more will receive numerous traffic offense charges that can result in serious penalties. At the MacDonald Law Office, LLC, we defend people who have never before had so much as a speeding ticket to people who have been caught driving while their license is revoked.

Types of Traffic Violations
Our skilled Salisbury traffic lawyers handle violations that include:
- Aggressive driving
- Driving with a suspended license
- Driving with a revoked license
- Driving without a license
- Driving without insurance
- Leaving the scene of the accident
What are the Penalties for a Traffic Violation?
Many of these are incarcerable traffic offenses and carry penalties of up to a year in jail. Additionally, the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) can assess points against your driving privileges. An accumulation of points can result in license suspension or revocation. Our law firm strives to help you avoid points on your record. We can identify options that include reducing the speed, pleading out to a lesser charge, and requesting probation before judgment to help avoid points being assessed on your license.
Do You Have a Commercial Driver's License?
As a commercial driver, your commercial driver's license (CDL) must be in good standing to earn a living. Our law firm defends commercial drivers against traffic violations and equipment violations. Equipment violations for commercial vehicles can be costly—often in the thousands of dollars. Serious traffic convictions can result in the loss of your CDL. Whether you have been cited for speeding, for an equipment violation, or any other reason, our attorneys can help you maintain your CDL. We are often successful in reducing the fines for commercial vehicle citations, and we can likely save you money.
