How to Beat a Florida Traffic Ticket

If you have been issued a Florida traffic ticket, don’t plead guilty until you fully understand the penalties for each Florida traffic citation, as well as your options for getting the ticket dismissed. The Florida traffic attorneys at The Criminal Law Group have compiled the following information to help you win your Florida traffic case. 

Florida Speeding Tickets 

Paying a Florida speeding ticket is an automatic admission of guilt and will automatically add points to your driver’s license. 

Depending on the violation, paying the ticket will result in at least: 

  • Points on your driver’s license; and
  • Traffic fines 

Unlawful Speed 

There are 4 categories of Florida speeding tickets that depend on how far over the speeding limit you are accused of driving: 

  • 15 MPH or LESS over the lawful posted speed limit
  • 16 MPH of MORE over the lawful posted speed limit
  • 30 MPH or MORE over the lawful posted speed limit
  • 50 MPH or MORE over the lawful posted speed limit 

All the fines associated with these citations will vary by county, but the points will stay on your license for three years, and the speeding ticket itself will stay on your driver’s license record forever. 

If you are found guilty of going 15 MPH or less over the speed limit, you will be given a fine and three points on your license. 

This citation requires no court date and the options are few: 

  • Pay the ticket and take the points on your license
  • If eligible, go to traffic school
  • Call an experienced traffic attorney to fight the ticket 

If you are cited for traveling at 16 MPH or more over the speed limit, you will receive four points on your license, a fine, and no court date is required. 

If found guilty of going 30 MPH or more over the speed limit, you will receive: 

  • A traffic fine
  • Four points on your license
  • Possible license suspension
  • Mandatory court date (failure to appear could result in license suspension) 

Being found guilty of driving 50 MPH or more over the speed limit will result in a civil penalty of $1,000. A second offense raises the penalty to $2,500 and a license revocation of one year. A third conviction results in a penalty up to $5,000, loss of a driver’s license for 10 years, and a third degree felony charge. 

Should you have received your citation inside a construction or school zone, fines are automatically doubled, civil penalties up to $1,000 are possible, and mandatory completion of a traffic school may be required. 

Pleading guilty is not your only option. Each of these offenses can be fought and won in Florida court with the assistance of an experienced Florida traffic attorney who understands what questions to ask and what evidence to demand to help get your ticket thrown out without you paying any fines or receiving any points on your license. 

Attacking the Citation 

Florida offers the possibility of attending traffic school and while there are certainly benefits to attending traffic school, there are also certain limitations

Choosing to challenge the citation affords you the opportunity to confront the issuing officer to ensure his testimony warrants issuing the ticket. The officer must be able to show beyond a reasonable doubt the issued citation was justified. 

Other ways to attack the issued citation include:  

  • Any material defect in the speeding ticket
  • Calibration of the radar device used to track your speed
  • Officer training in using the tracking radar
  • Invalid pace calibration 

If you’ve been cited for a Florida traffic offense, you can fight your ticket in court and win. Contact the experienced Florida traffic attorneys at The Criminal Law Group for a FREE consultation on your case!
