Oregon man arrested for nearly hitting police officers with car

People do not often think about traffic violations as crimes. Most of the time traffic citations are merely violations that result in a small fine or other minimal penalty. However, traffic violations can lead to misdemeanor charges in certain situations. When people are charged with a misdemeanor they can face much more serious penalties. In Oregon, misdemeanors can result in fines of up to $6,250 and up to a year in jail. These penalties can have a serious effect on a person's immediate and long-term futures.

Although anyone can expect to face charges if they're accused by police of driving drunk, the penalties are obviously much more severe in cases where someone else has died. Depending on the circumstances of the incident and a judge or jury's response to them, a motorist convicted in Oregon of driving under the influence of intoxicants in connection with a fatal crash could face a significant prison sentence.
