Because being citted for a non-criminal traffic ticket carries lesser consequences than a traffic crime, many people find themselves overlooking or forgetting about the infraction as they go about their busy lives. What these people do not realize is that failure to pay the imposed fine or show up on the designated court date may make matters even worse.

Failure to pay the imposed fine or failure to appear in court can be serious enough to leave lasting consequences, such as the potential suspension of your driving privileges, increase of insurance rates and potential for jail time if you are pulled over for driving on a suspended license.

Non-Criminal Traffic Ticket Violations:

Traffic Ticket Violations or Infractions are the less serious, noncriminal type of traffic ticket, but they have the potential to dramatically affect your life if they are not paid or if you have multiple offenses.

Non-criminal traffic ticket infractions include:

Moving Traffic Violations such as:

  • Speeding;
  • Careless driving;
  • Failure to yield;
  • Improper lane changes;
  • Driving during restricted hours;
  • Child restraint violations;
  • Illegal U-turns;
  • Stop sign or traffic light violations.

Non-Moving Traffic Violations such as:

  • Seatbelt Violations;
  • Improper Parking;
  • Open alcoholic beverage containers.

Points against your drivers license are typically added for moving violations. While these traffic violations typically do not carry the possibility of jail time, they may still carry substantial fines. Traffic infractions may also cause your car insurance rates to go up and may result in a driver's license suspension if you have multiple offenses.

Driver’s license suspension guidelines (need to check statute):

  • Lose 12 points within a 12-month period, suspension is 30 days;
  • Lose 18 points within an 18-month period, suspension is 3 months;
  • Lose 24 points within a 36-month period, suspension is 1 year.

Point loss is cumulative and does not start over once a suspension is served. For example, you could lose your license for 30 days, get 6 more points and be ordered to serve the 3 month suspension. Our team is ready to help you hold onto your license. If you have received a traffic citation in Central Florida, let us inform you of your rights and protect your driving record. Contact us day or night for a free consultation.

Criminal Traffic Offenses:

A criminal traffic ticket is obviously a more serious traffic infraction, which can carry hefty fines, the possibility of jail time, and the suspension of your driving privileges.

Traffic Crimes may include:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI);
  • Driving with suspended or revoked license;
  • Reckless driving;
  • Driving with an open container;
  • Leaving the scene of an accident;
  • Racing.

Based upon an individual’s prior driving record, traffic crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony.
