Traffic Violations & Habitual Offenders
In the state of Florida, they take traffic laws quite seriously, and have been known to impose some of the heaviest and harshest penalties for traffic violations across the US – especially when it comes to habitual offenders and repeat offenses.
Florida Traffic Laws
The right to drive is a privilege, one that has been afforded to millions across the state of Florida. However, with so many individuals on the road issues happen, and individuals make mistakes. In the event you have committed some type of severe traffic violation or a number of concurrent traffic violations you will need the assistance of an experienced attorney like Steven Veinger to avoid penalties such as heavy fines, loss of license or suspension, vehicle confiscation, jail time or more.
Some of the more common traffic violations include:
- Failure to follow signs or lights.
- No seat belt or child restraint violations.
- Illegal U-turn
- Driving without a license.
- Unlawful vehicle modifications
When it comes to traffic violations, the more severe the issue, the more likely you are to incur heavier fines and/or penalties.
Some of the more severe traffic issues include:
- Reckless driving.
- Hit & Run or leaving the scene of an accident.
- Racing or Speeding – extremely high speeds, even doubling the speed limit.
Generally, when it comes to the legal system, there are two manners for which a defendant can receive enhanced charges or extremely harsh penalties. The first being the severity of the singular crime or violation they have committed, and the second being a reoffender or the number of times they have been charged with committing the same or similar violation. In the latter instance, the defendant will now be considered a habitual offender, and is now subject to far harsher penalties. While a speeding ticket or other moving violation, may not be a huge deal on its own, when you repeatedly get pulled over for speeding, you become a habitual offender and are now subject to the harshest of penalties, including:
- Heavy Fines.
- Jail Time.
- Suspension or Loss of License.
- Vehicle Confiscation.
