About Criminal Traffic Offenses and Infractions
Most traffic offenses fall under the category of infractions. An infraction is a lesser offense than a misdemeanor or felony. In general, when a traffic offense causes injury to a person or destruction of property; or, when it threatens injury or destruction it is reclassified as a misdemeanor or felony. For example, running a stop sign could be classified as a misdemeanor unless the driver hit and killed someone while doing so. In that case it would become a felony.
