Speeding Violations in Florida
Title XXIII of the Florida Statutes pertains to Motor Vehicles, describing the disposition of traffic infractions in Chapter 318. It also explains the laws regarding State Uniform Traffic Control in Chapter 316, which lists a variety of specific traffic infractions. Speeding offenses, detailed in Chapter 316, Section 183, may result in fines, points added to the defendant’s driver’s license, and even jail time if the person has accumulated a number of points that exceeds a certain threshold dictated by State law.
For instance, speeding offenses involving a speed that is less than 15 miles per hour over the limit can result in 3 points, while speeding 15 miles per hour or higher over the limit is punishable by 4 points. In addition, a person who accumulates 12 points on his or her license within 12 months can be sentenced to serve 30 days in jail. Accumulating 18 points within 18 months is punishable by up to 3 months in jail, and those who accumulate 24 points within 36 months may face a 1-year prison term.
In most speeding cases, State law allows an attorney to represent an individual who was issued a speeding ticket without his or her client needing to appear in court. With the help of an experienced traffic defense lawyer, you can potentially avoid some of the penalties listed above, as well as associated problems like increases in insurance premiums and time conflicts with work.
