What Is the Difference Between A Serious Auto Crime and A Traffic Violation?

A serious auto crime typically carries a heavier sentence than a traffic violation. Such crimes usually involve an intent to cause injury, although vehicular manslaughter is an exception. Traffic violations, however, are typically a result of negligence. Such violations can be treated as misdemeanors, with only minor fines. Serious auto crimes are often felonies with more serious sentences.
