The fines and hassle associated with a traffic ticket can be overwhelming. In addition to having to deal with the citation, you also have to consider how your driving record and insurance rates will be impacted. The best way to handle a traffic ticket is to defend the charges rather than simply pay the ticket. If you pay the ticket and move on, harmful points could accumulate on your record and this could lead to possible revocation or suspension of your driving privileges. Avoid these harsh consequences by aggressively fighting the ticket. We help people with speeding tickets, reckless driving charges, allegations of hit and run or leaving the scene of an accident, DUI, and other traffic related citations.
When determining the best approach to take for defense of your traffic ticket it is helpful to know the two types of traffic tickets. In Florida, traffic violations are categorized as follows:
- Moving violations: cases that include a violation of traffic laws while driving, like speeding or a DUI.
- Nonmoving violations: cases that include a violation of traffic laws while not driving, like illegal parking or having too many points on your record.
