Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale

Many people have broken traffic laws and have been charged with traffic infractions. Often, these are not serious offenses and happen because of a momentary lapse in judgment or a simple mistake. However, traffic tickets can come with large fines and may even be related to incidents that include property damage or injuries.

If you believe you were treated unjustly and did not deserve the ticket or the amount of the fine imposed, contact The Law Offices of R. David Williams, P.A., and speak with a qualified lawyer. You may be able to have your ticket thrown out or reduced.

Types of Traffic Tickets You May Get

If you are facing fines, fees, or even jail time for traffic violations, an experienced attorney can be your advocate. The following are common tickets that bring fines or other penalties:
  • speeding
  • reckless driving
  • street racing
  • rear-end accidents
  • red light violations
  • improper U-turn
  • stop sign violations
  • failure to yield to an emergency vehicle

Speeding Charges And Penalties

Speeding is perhaps the most common traffic violation. The penalties can vary widely, depending on how fast you are going and how much you exceeded the speed limit. Exceeding the limit by 6 to 9 miles per hour will result in a fine of $129 in Broward County, Florida. If you are going 10 to 14 miles over the limit in Broward County, the fine will increase to $204, or $254 if you are going 15 to 19 miles over the speed limit. Be aware that going 30 miles over the speed limit requires a mandatory court appearance.

In addition, speeding can lead to the accumulation of points on your driving record. This can result in a suspension of your driver’s license, not to mention increases in your insurance rates. Other penalties include having to take a traffic school course.

Traffic Crimes That Can Send You To Jail

Not all traffic tickets result in a simple fine or taking a course. There are more severe penalties, including jail time and probation. A charge of reckless driving can be a felony, which carries up to five years in prison and $5,000 in fines. Fleeing and eluding police can be a first-degree felony, punishable by up to 30 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

Driving with a suspended license can lead to 60 days in jail for the first offense and up to one year in prison for a second offense. On a third offense, the penalty would be a felony, with penalties including up to five years in prison.

Leaving the scene of an accident can also be punishable by up to five years in prison.
