If so, you may benefit from speaking with an attorney prior to taking other actions. Although paying the fine for a traffic citation may appear to be the easiest solution, it may not be in your best interest. Points against your Florida driver's license can add up quickly and a blemished driving record may result in auto insurance premium surcharges that can last for years. Receiving a traffic ticket does not mean that you are guilty of the offense, submitting payment does. To protect your interests, it is important to seek legal counsel in a timely manner.
At The Law Offices of Edwards & Jones, our traffic defense lawyers have successfully represented clients for a broad range of violations such as:
- Speeding Tickets
- Red Light Violation
- Suspended Driver's License
- Running a Stop Sign
- No "Car Insurance"
- Passing a School Bus
- Speeding in a School Zone
- Ordinance Violations
- Warrant Roundup
- Failure to Appear in Court
Deferred Ajudication | Traffic Safety Training
For certain infractions, you may opt for a deferred adjudication where you can complete a driving safety course prior to your court date. If eligible, you will have to pay certain administrative fees to attend training. However, with the successful completion of the program, you may avoid having to pay the fine as well as accumulating additional points against your license. If you believe you were driving safely at the time your ticket was issued or that you were unreasonably cited for a moving violation, our defense attorneys may be able to have the case dismissed or plead down the violation to protect your driving record.
