ADVANTAGES TO HIRING US
NO POINTS GUARANTEED*
What No One Else Will Tell You
We concentrate on getting our clients no points and no school. Dismissals are great, and we get them, but it is harder these days because of tickets being more automated. There are the exceptions which we catch. For example, no description on certain tickets that require it would be dismissed.
Also, if school is ordered, it is normally because of a high speed or multiple tickets in the past few years. This can be advantageous in negotiating with the State for no points, and it wouldn’t count against your 5 lifetime elections.
The worst hidden cost of getting points is the increase in insurance premiums. For years I’ve told people that they could raise your rates for up to 3 years but the last insurance quote I received they asked for 5 years of look-back to determine the insurance rates!
Your Legal Options
If you have received a ticket as a result of a speeding, the following are your legal options:
Pay your traffic ticket and receive 3-6 points on your license, fines ranging from $100-$1000, and incur higher insurance premiums.
Pay your ticket and attend Traffic School, you will incur a fine and use one of your five lifetime chances to take this option. You are only allowed to take one class withing a 12 month period.
Contest the ticket yourself. Familiar yourself with the Florida Rules of Traffic Court, court procedure, and what are valid and invlaid defenses. You will have to know what to say, and sometimes more importantly, what not to say.
Hire our law firm to Fight Back for a chance at a dismissal, no points, and no traffic school. You would also not have to appear in court.
THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ON
STOP SIGN TRAFFIC TICKETS
What should I do if I receive a traffic ticket for a stop sign violation in Florida?
When you receive a traffic ticket for a stop sign violation in Florida, it is important to take prompt action. First, carefully review the ticket and understand the details of the alleged violation. It is generally recommended to not admit guilt at this stage. You have the option to pay the fine, which is an admission of guilt, or contest the ticket. Consulting with an attorney experienced in traffic law can provide you with valuable guidance on the best course of action based on the specific circumstances of your case.
How much is the fine for a stop sign violation in Florida?
The amount of the fine for a stop sign violation in Florida varies depending on the county and municipality where the violation occurred. Generally, fines for traffic violations, including stop sign violations, can range from around $166 to $264. It is important to note that fines can increase if there are additional factors involved, such as late fees and suspension of your driving privilege.
Will I receive points on my driving record for a stop sign violation?
In Florida, a stop sign violation typically results in the assessment of three points on your driving record if you just pay it. Accumulating points on your driving record can have consequences such as increased insurance rates and potential license suspension if you accumulate too many points within a specific timeframe. You can avoid the points you would have to take the 4-hour basic driver improvement course, but you are only allowed to do this once every 12 months and 5 times in a lifetime. However, with the help of an attorney, there may be options to mitigate or reduce the impact of the points on your driving record.
Can I contest the stop sign violation ticket in court?
Yes, you have the right to contest a stop sign violation ticket in court. Contesting the ticket involves challenging the validity of the citation or presenting a defense to prove your innocence or mitigate the charges. An attorney experienced in traffic law can evaluate the circumstances of your case, examine the evidence, and advise you on the best strategy for contesting the ticket effectively.
What are the potential penalties or consequences if I am found guilty of the stop sign violation?
If you are found guilty of a stop sign violation in Florida, potential penalties can include fines, points added to your driving record, possible increase in auto insurance rates, and even driver’s license suspension in certain cases. The specific consequences depend on various factors, including the severity of the violation and any prior traffic offenses. Consulting with an attorney can help you understand the potential penalties associated with your case and explore options to minimize their impact.
Will my auto insurance rates increase due to a stop sign violation ticket?
While the impact on auto insurance rates can vary depending on the insurance provider and your driving history, it is almost a certainty that your rates will increase due to a stop sign violation ticket. Insurance companies consider traffic violations as indicators of increased risk, which will result in higher premiums. However, each insurance company has its own policies, and some may offer accident forgiveness or other options that can help mitigate the rate increase. Consulting with your insurance provider and discussing the situation with an attorney can provide you with a better understanding of the potential impact on your insurance rates.
How long do I have to respond to the traffic ticket?
In Florida, you typically have 30 days from the date of issuance of the traffic ticket to respond. The response can involve paying the fine or contesting the ticket by requesting a hearing. When you hire an attorney to represent you on a traffic ticket, they should handle all of this for you. It is crucial to comply with the designated timeframe and follow the instructions provided on the ticket to avoid additional penalties otherwise.
Should I hire an attorney to handle my stop sign violation case?
While hiring an attorney is not mandatory for handling a stop sign violation case, it is highly recommended. An attorney specializing in traffic law can provide valuable expertise and support throughout the process. They can assess the merits of your case, navigate the legal procedures, explore potential defenses, negotiate with prosecutors, and help you achieve the best possible outcome. With their knowledge and experience, an attorney can significantly increase your chances of minimizing the consequences associated with a stop sign violation such as reduced fines and elimination of points.
