Tailgating Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Tailgating Violations Lawyer in Tampa

What do you do if you get a ticket for tailgating?

If you are driving too close behind the car or truck in front of you for the speed you are traveling, you may be stopped and issued a ticket for tailgating. Also called "following too close", the assumption is that if the vehicle in front were to suddenly stop or slow down, you would be likely to collide with or "rear-end" that vehicle. A tailgating citation will cost you a fine and add points to your driving record that will certainly raise your insurance rates. Before you do anything else, you should first consult with an attorney who specializes in traffic offenses. Meet with a Tampa traffic offenses attorney at the offices of Taracks & Associates as soon as possible. We will discuss the details of your tailgating ticket with you and find the best course of action for you to take.

A Traffic Offenses Attorney in Tampa Can Help You.

Because it is a matter of the officer's opinion on how close you were and how safe or unsafe it was, it is often possible for your criminal defense attorney to argue the case in your favor as it is up to the officer to prove his case. If he cannot, then the judge will most likely dismiss the charges.

It is important that you speak to an experienced traffic offenses lawyer at our offices before you make any statements to the officer or admit guilt by paying the fine. There is no reason to suffer higher insurance costs and damage your driving record when you don't need to. Let us help you fight the ticket and save you the fine and points.

Contact a Tampa Tailgating Violations Attorney if you get a ticket for tailgating. Our firm may be able to assist you in getting the ticket dismissed.
