FLORIDA TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
MOST TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS ARE “NON CRIMINAL INFRACTIONS” WHICH MEANS THAT THEY ARE NOT CRIMES AND YOU CANNOT BE JAILED FOR THEM. YOU CAN BE FINED AND POINTS ASSESSED AGAINST YOUR LICENSE, BUT THE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES OF JAIL ARE UNAVAILABLE.
The Defense Group represents people charged with criminal traffic offenses. These include the most serious offenses such as DUI Manslaughter or Vehicular Homicide. Also included are offenses like Fleeing and Attempting to Elude a Law Enforcement Officer, Reckless Driving, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License.
Florida’s traffic code is found in Chapter 316 of the Florida statutes. It is a long and complicated statute and it is safe to say that most drivers are unfamiliar with most of the statutes found there. The consequences of many offenses on your driving privilege (yes, its a privilege and not a right) and your insurance rates are additional reasons to seek out experienced legal assistance when you are charged with a traffic offense.
If a non-criminal traffic infraction threatens your employment or has some other serious potential consequences, we can certainly defend your case. For most minor offenses, retaining a lawyer is not economically efficient.
