Types of Criminal Traffic Violations in Florida

Traffic offenses in Florida encompass a variety of violations including DUI, reckless driving, and fleeing the scene of an accident. Penalties vary, ranging from fines and/or probation, and jail time or imprisonment.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving is a serious offense characterized by a disregard for safety and traffic laws. This can include excessive speeding, aggressive maneuvers, or endangering others on the road. Conviction can lead to hefty fines, license suspension, and even imprisonment, underscoring the need for a strong legal defense.

Drive With a Suspended License

Driving with a suspended license in Florida is a significant legal offense. Suspensions can occur for reasons like DUIs, unpaid tickets, or accumulation of points. Consequences of driving on a suspended license range from additional fines to potential jail time, emphasizing the importance of legal guidance to resolve license issues.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Leaving the scene of an accident refers to the act of leaving an accident scene without identifying oneself or offering aid to those involved. This includes accidents resulting in property damage, injury, or, in severe cases, fatality. These offenses range from misdemeanors to felonies, depending on damage or injury severity.

Racing on a Highway

Street racing in Florida is a hazardous and illegal activity involving unauthorized speed competitions on public roads. This offense carries serious consequences, including hefty fines, potential imprisonment, vehicle impoundment, and driver’s license revocation.
