Traffic Tickets

If you have received a traffic citation in the South Florida area (including the Miami-Dade, Broward, or Palm Beach counties) do not immediately pay the ticket until you have spoken with an experienced attorney. There are many ways to lose your driver’s license and one of the most common issues causing license suspension is failing to appropriately respond you a traffic citation. In Florida, most traffic tickets a response is required within 30 days of receiving the citation and failure to do so can result in additional fees and even result in a license suspension. You should be aware that when you just pay a traffic ticket it is an admission of guilt and you are pleading guilty to the offense. Further, if it is a moving violation points will be assessed to your driver’s license and can affect your insurance rates. For these reasons, it is important to consult with an attorney to discuss your options and plausible outcomes.

In most cases it is beneficial to hire an attorney to combat any traffic citation that you may have received for a variety of reasons. The primary benefits in hiring an attorney to fight a traffic ticket for you is the costs that can be saved and your driving record is preserved. Challenging a traffic citation not only allows you the opportunity to have the ticket completely dismissed (which means there are no costs aside from initial minimal legal fee) but additionally even if the ticket is not thrown out in most cases the result is what is known as a withhold of adjudication. Receiving a withhold of adjudication prevents points from being added to your license, does not require you to pay for and attend traffic school, and will not cause your insurance rates to increase saving you a great deal of money. Further, for individuals with commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) by simply just paying a ticket that was received may result in a revocation of their CDL and may prohibit them from continuing their employment. For these reasons, it is always advisable to contact an attorney before paying any traffic citation that you may have received.
