Failure to Maintain Control Attorney in Salt Lake City & Utah

Failure to Maintain Control of a Vehicle Defense Attorney in Salt Lake City, Murray, West Valley, and SandyWhen a traffic accident occurs, the police often scramble to find an easy explanation that will let them write someone a ticket and get out of there. Some statutes are written vaguely, allowing cops to write you a ticket when they aren’t really sure what it is that you did wrong. In Utah, some cities have statutes prohibiting “failure to maintain control of a vehicle.” Others have similarly worded statutes. For example, in Salt Lake City, instead of “failure to maintain control of a vehicle,” city statutes prohibit “negligent driving that results in a collision.”

If you are cited with a ticket for something similar to one of these violations in the Salt Lake Cit area or throughout Utah, in all likelihood, the officer was simply stumped, wanted to cite you for something, and used that statute as his or her reason. You can fight these charges. An experienced traffic violation defense attorney will know the relevant laws and understand the weaknesses in the cop’s argument. Consult with a Utah criminal defense lawyer before deciding how to handle a charge of “failure to maintain control of a vehicle.”
