Careless Driving Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Tampa Careless Driving Attorney

Careless Driving Ticket Florida

Even if there is no accident, Florida law enforcement officers can issue a citation for careless driving. Anything an officer decides is some combination of irresponsible or potentially dangerous actions performed while driving that doesn't fit under other specific traffic violations can be ticketed as "careless driving". Most careless driving citations get issued for rear-end collisions but many others are issued under the "catch-all" description of the Florida statute which states that, "any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways within the state shall drive the same in a careful and prudent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic and all other attendant circumstances, so as to not endanger the life, limb or property of any person."

Unfortunately, even if there is no threat or danger to a person or property, if an officer deems a driver's actions are unreasonable, they can and do issue a careless driving citation. If this has happened to you, you should contact a Tampa careless driving lawyer at the offices of Taracks & Associates. We will investigate the circumstances surrounding your ticket and can advise you on your rights and the proper legal measures to follow.

Defense for Careless Driving Ticket in Florida

In traffic court, the officer issuing the citation is the prosecutor and he must substantiate his citation in order for the court to act upon it. That means the officer must provide proof and witnesses in addition to his own testimony to the judge. Our Tampa careless driving attorney is experienced in dealing with these kinds of cases. If the other witnesses do not appear, or you can provide your own independent witnesses or evidence to disprove the charges against you, our firm may be able to get the ticket dismissed.
