Traffic Citations Are Considered Criminal Records, a U.S.based online public records resource, acknowledges traffic citations are considered criminal records. Traffic citations can vary from infractions to misdemeanors depending on the nature of the violation.

Search Quarry representatives highlight this information because many people don’t realize that traffic citations are considered criminal records. Most traffic citations are considered non-violent crimes and recorded as infractions. A DUI or DWI is a more serious traffic citation and is often recorded as a misdemeanor. If there is road rage or vehicular homicide involved with a traffic incident then this can potentially be recorded as a felony, especially if there is evidence that it was intentional.
