At Guardline Law, our Florida criminal defense attorneys are committed to helping clients navigate the complexities of traffic citations. Whether you are facing fines, points on your license, or more serious consequences, our experienced legal team is here to provide effective representation tailored to your specific case.

Common Types of Traffic Infractions: Understanding the Charges

Traffic citations can range from minor infractions to more serious offenses. Some common types of traffic infractions in Florida include:

  1. Speeding Tickets: Exceeding the posted speed limit.
  2. Running Red Lights or Stop Signs: Disregarding traffic signals.
  3. Reckless Driving: Operating a vehicle in a manner that endangers others.
  4. Failure to Yield: Failing to give the right of way when required.
  5. Driving Without a Valid License or Registration: Operating a vehicle without the necessary documents.

Understanding the nature of the citation is crucial for building a solid defense strategy.

Keeping Points Off Your Driver’s License: Minimizing Consequences

Accumulating points on your driver’s license can lead to increased insurance premiums and potential license suspension. Our attorneys work diligently to help clients minimize or avoid points by negotiating reduced charges, attending traffic school, or exploring other legal avenues.

Types of Driver Improvement Classes: Education for Better Outcomes

In some cases, attending a driver improvement course can be an effective way to mitigate the consequences of a traffic citation. We guide clients through the available options, including:

  1. Basic Driver Improvement Course (BDI): Typically taken for minor traffic violations.
  2. Advanced Driver Improvement Course (ADI): Required for more serious offenses or habitual traffic offenders.

Completing these courses may result in a reduction of fines or points on your license.

Common Defense Strategies for Traffic Citation Cases: Protecting Your Rights

Our legal team employs various defense strategies to challenge traffic citations, including:

  1. Challenging Radar Accuracy: Questioning the reliability of speed measurement devices.
  2. Examining Traffic Signal Timing: Investigating whether traffic signals were functioning correctly.
  3. Proving Necessity or Emergency: Demonstrating that the alleged violation was necessary to avoid a more significant danger.
  4. Identifying Errors in Documentation: Scrutinizing the citation for inaccuracies or procedural errors.

We understand the potential impact of traffic citations on your driving record and insurance rates. Our goal is to help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
