ORLANDO TRAFFIC VIOLATION DEFENSE ATTORNEY
You Need a Qualified Florida Traffic Lawyer to Fight for Your Rights and Freedom
Most first-time traffic offenses result in fines. However, multiple traffic violations can result in more serious penalties, including loss of driving privileges and possible jail time.
Speeding – This is the most common ticket drivers receive in Florida. You have three options for how to handle a speeding ticket: attend traffic school, pay the civil penalty, or request a court appearance. If you choose to fight the offense in court, it is in your best interest to hire a qualified Florida traffic lawyer to help you.
Reckless driving – This occurs when you drive in a way that shows willful or wanton disregard for the safety of people or property. Penalties will depend on how many past reckless driving convictions you have and if anyone was injured. If you are convicted of First Offense Reckless Driving, you can be sentenced to up to 90 days of jail time, up to 6 months of probation, and/or a fine up to $500. If you have a prior conviction, you can face up to 6 months in jail and a fine between $50 and $500. If you are convicted of Reckless Driving Causing Property Damage, you can face up to a year in jail, a year of probation, and fines up to $1,000. For Reckless Driving Causing Serious Bodily Injury, you can be sentenced to up to 5 years in prison, five years of probation, and a fine of up to $5,000.
Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License – This is a serious matter since a conviction can result in the revocation of your driver’s license for 5 years, and if you are arrested for an additional Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License charge, you can be charged with a felony. There are ways to fight the charge, so contact an Orlando traffic attorney to find out your options.
Driving under the influence – This is a very serious crime that can result in jail time, penalties, and a suspension of your driving privileges. Your insurance rates will also skyrocket after conviction. Even if you have failed a breathalyzer test, there are ways to contest the results, such as user error, incorrect machine calibration, and differences in your body’s physiology. It is in your best interest to hire an experienced Florida DUI attorney who can investigate and determine the best strategy for your defense.
Driving without Insurance – If you do not have car insurance, or have insufficient car insurance, and are driving, you are breaking the law. Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles can suspend your driver’s license for up to three years or until you can show proof of Florida car insurance. Also, you will pay fines between $150 and $500. You may be required to have your car insurance company file an SR-22 form with the state, which will result in your insurance premiums skyrocketing. Protect yourself by hiring a qualified Florida traffic lawyer.
Other types of violations include stop light violations, parking violations, following too close, running a red light / stop sign, invalid driver’s license, driving without a license, and driving without insurance / without proof of insurance. If you have tickets for any of the above offenses, you may face fines, increased insurance premiums, driving classes, and the possibility of losing your license, especially if this is not your first ticket. We can represent you at your hearing, and work to negotiate the best possible outcome for your circumstance.
Penalties for Traffic Violations
If you’ve been arrested or given notice to appear in court for DUI / drunk driving or another traffic violation, be aware that even civil citations may affect your driving privileges and can become criminal matters if committed more than once. A judge is permitted to order the following sanctions for a criminal traffic offense:
- Jail time or prison
- Driver’s license suspension
- Fines and / or court costs
- Classes, evaluations, probation, impoundment of your vehicle, ignition interlock device
Additionally, Florida uses a point system. Each infraction accumulates points on your record, and once you go over a certain amount, there are penalties you will face. So even if this is your first ticket, consider how it may affect you in the future if you are charged with an additional traffic violation. Contact a qualified Florida traffic lawyer today to find out if you can fight your case in court.
