Civil Traffic Offenses – Keep the Points Off Your Florida License

•Civil Traffic Offenses are civil infractions which result from the violation of state, county or municipal laws or ordinances.
•Florida Traffic tickets for speeding and other violations do not carry criminal penalties, but they still have the ability to impact your driving record and your life. Points against your driver’s license for a traffic ticket will typically cause an increase in your insurance rates.
•If you pay the ticket, you are pleading guilty to a traffic violation, and you could be facing fines, points, higher insurance rates and/or other penalties.
•Too many points can result in license suspension or revocation.
•In Tallahassee and throughout Florida, a moving violation is a traffic offense, that is committed in a moving vehicle. A conviction for a moving violation may result in three to six points to your driving record.
•If you get 12 points within 12 months, your license will be suspended for at least 30 days. If you accumulate additional points after getting your license back, you could lose your driving privileges for up to a year.
•You may be tempted to simply pay the fine or attend traffic school to deal with the ticket, but you have another option: FIGHT THE TICKET!
