Are You Fighting a Traffic Offense in Florida?
While the term traffic offense may sound mild the consequences and penalties can be severe. Your license to drive or operate a vehicle can easily be suspended and your right to drive lost. Monetary fines can run into the thousands of dollars and automotive insurance rates generally skyrocket to prohibitive levels.
All of the following are possible as the result of traffic offense convictions:
- Jail time
- Community service
- Mandated counseling
- Humiliating devices to monitor one’s sobriety
Offenses such as a DUI can carry automatic license suspension if appropriate actions are not taken within very short time frames. Because of the time sensitive nature of a traffic offense it is important that you seek the help and advice of a Tampa traffic violations lawyer as soon as possible.

Losing Your Driving Privileges in Florida
Being allowed to drive or operate a vehicle in Florida is not a right, it is a privilege. The loss of this privilege can be devastating to one’s ability to earn a living, to shop for food or other necessity and to lead a full social life. This privilege can be taken from you not just because of a traffic offense but for reasons such as writing bad checks or not paying child support. If you are caught DWLSR (Driving with License Suspended or Revoked) you can face heavy penalties and fines.
Driving under the influence, or a DUI, is a very serious offense and must be fought with an experienced and skilled traffic offense defense. Every aspect of how you were accused and of how the evidence against you was obtained must be questioned and evaluated. The simple fact of having been arrested for a DUI does not mean an automatic or predetermined conviction.
A traffic offense can cover many areas from minor infractions to serious legal problems such as a DUI or reckless driving. Our Tampa traffic violations attorney at Taracks & Associates has years of experience defending our clients facing traffic offense charges. Whether it is the intricacies of challenging the validity of field sobriety tests or tackling a moving violation offense your interests are best served by calling us today.
Common Traffic Offenses in Florida
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), many people view minor traffic violations flippantly. Were you pulled over for driving over the speed limit? Speeding is one of the most common traffic violations committed on the roads today. Although speeding may seem harmless, it may cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle or amplify the consequences of a traffic accident. A survey conducted by NHTSA indicated that people also tend to run red lights.
Whether intentionally or unintentionally, running a red light can lead to serious fines. If you’ve been accused of entering an intersection while the light was red, talk to a Tampa traffic violations attorney from Taracks & Associates today. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is another common traffic offense. Drunk driving is never okay, but convicting an innocent motorist of a crime he/she didn’t commit is wrong, too.
