Traffic Ticket Penalties Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Florida Traffic Ticket Penalties

Tampa Traffic Offenses Lawyer

There are two basic types of traffic tickets, infractions and violations. An infraction isn't considered a crime and usually just has a fine. Most traffic tickets issued are infractions. It is not considered a crime and you can't be jailed or have a jury trial. No points are put on your driving record. Things like parking tickets or parking in a handicap space without authorization are infractions.

The more serious type of ticket is a violation and is usually considered a crime. They range from misdemeanors to felonies and the penalties become much more severe. They require a bail payment and give you the right to appear in court and have an attorney to represent you. The penalties increase to paying much heavier fines, getting points on your driving record, increased insurance rates, attending traffic school, having your license suspended and, in the case of repeated offenses, jail time.

Whenever you receive a traffic ticket that is more serious than an infraction, such as a speeding ticket or any other moving violation, you should first consult with an attorney who specializes in traffic offenses.
