Tampa Highway Racing Attorney

Defense for Racing Offenses in Florida

"Racing on highways" or "street racing" is a misdemeanor traffic offense according to Florida statutes. It can involve many different types of vehicles, from cars to motorcycles to trucks, and a conviction can carry considerable penalties, including suspension of one's license and dramatically increased insurance premiums. You may also face steep fines and jail time. A first offense for street racing can result in up to a $1000 fine and up to 12 months in jail. A second offense can bring similar penalties and include the impoundment of your vehicle and a 2-year driver's license revocation. Third offenses can result in forfeiture of your vehicle and other heavy penalties. If you have been charged with a racing offense, then it is crucial you acquire the services of a Tampa traffic offenses lawyer who can provide you with legal help in your case and ensure your rights are protected.

Tampa Highway Racing Offenses

The statutes regarding street racing and highway racing in Florida are somewhat vague, and can be difficult to prove. Additionally, the definition of "race" in those statutes is equally vague, and to a certain extent, subjective standards are used by law enforcement officers to determine if someone is guilty of the offense or not. Because of this, mistakes on the officer's part may have been made during the arrest, or your rights may have been violated at some point as well. A seasoned attorney can clarify if this is the case, and use these discrepancies to your benefit in your illegal racing case. Taracks & Associates are well-versed in all manner of traffic offense cases, and we can provide skilled legal assistance to you. Contact our criminal defense firm today, and we will begin investigating the charges against you to enhance the likelihood of your charges being lessened or dropped completely.
