Traffic Cases We Handle
Far too many people resign themselves to simply paying a traffic ticket
and moving on. Unfortunately, traffic tickets can have a negative impact
on your driving record and can be grounds for your insurance company to
raise premiums for your auto insurance. These consequences can prove costly
in the long-run.
By working with an experienced lawyer who can challenge the facts of your
case and pursue the best possible resolution, you can put yourself in
a better position to have charges dismissed or even reduced. Examples
of the traffic cases and moving violations we handle include:
- Failures to yield
- Disobeying a traffic light or signal
- Failing to stop at a stop sign
Criminal Traffic Offenses
While many traffic tickets are considered infractions, there are certain
types of violations that are considered crimes which may result in misdemeanor
or felony charges. Common criminal traffic violations in Florida include:
- Driving on a suspended license
- Reckless driving
- Habitual traffic offender
- Fleeing the scene of an accident
Driving under the influence (DUI)
- No valid driver’s license
- Unlawful display of license
- Street racing
- Unlawful use of ID card
The difference between a traffic ticket for a moving violation and a criminal
traffic violation could not be more pronounced. Criminal traffic violations
pose criminal allegations of at least a misdemeanor offense. Depending
on the facts involved in a case, these crimes can pose large fines, court
ordered education, community service, probation, and even possible terms
of imprisonment. This is in addition to having a criminal conviction on
your record. When there are aggravating circumstances involved, such as
prior criminal convictions or more serious allegations, penalties can
be significantly elevated.
In any case where criminal charges are filed, working with a defense attorney
becomes critical to protecting your rights during the process and protecting
yourself from serious penalties and a criminal record.
