Traffic Violations Can Mean Serious Consequences
Many people do not realize the serious legal consequences that can come with traffic violations — but these things should be taken seriously. The state of Florida places harsh consequences on people convicted of traffic offenses, and people who fail to fight charges may find themselves owing heavy fines, facing license suspension or even jail time.
At my law firm — The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. — I offer serious legal representation for people facing a wide range of traffic tickets and criminal traffic offenses in the Fort Lauderdale area:
- Driving with license suspended (DWLS)
- Driving without a valid driver’s license
- Leaving the scene of an accident
Is It Really Just A Ticket?
Sometimes offenses that look like traffic tickets are really more. They are criminal traffic offenses. They require a court appearance and they carry with them more serious penalties than traffic tickets.
If you have received what looks like a ticket from a police officer, take a closer look. Examine the bottom of the paper. One of two things may be marked. It may say either, “criminal infraction, court appearance required,” or it may say, “non-criminal offense.”
If a court appearance is required, you have been charged with a criminal traffic offense. It is important that you take this seriously and talk with a lawyer about your legal problems.
