Traffic Tickets

Civil Traffic Infractions

​Getting a traffic ticket is never a fun ordeal. However, simply electing to pay the traffic ticket without challenge doesn’t make it go away. Paying a ticket like this is actually akin to admitting guilt and being convicted.

The Consequence of A Ticket

The Florida DMV will put points on your license for most traffic infractions. Your license may be suspended if you incur the following points:

  • 12 points within a 12-month period―30-day suspension
  • 18 points within an 18-month period―three-month suspension
  • 24 points within a 36-month period-one year suspension

Further, the assessment of points against your license can cost you thousands of dollars in higher insurance premiums. Like it or not, those higher premiums can follow you for three years or more.  

Because of these pitfalls, it is always a good idea to consult with an attorney regarding your options. Most of the time, an experienced attorney can avoid points being assessed to your license. Best of all, in nearly all cases, you won’t even need to set foot in a court room. Attorney William B. Wynne, will personally appear on your behalf and fight to have your ticket either dismissed or reduced. At the Law Office of William B. Wynne, I represent local drivers who have received traffic tickets for:

  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Careless Driving
  • Stop Sign Violations
  • Failure to obey traffic control device
  • Causing an accident
  • Driving with expired registration
  • Hit and run
  • Speeding in a construction zone
  • Speeding in a school zone
  • Failure to yield to emergency vehicle
  • Failure to yield to right of way
  • Failure to have liability insurance
  • Failure to stop for a siren
  • Passing a school bus
  • Running a red light​

Fight your ticket

​Just because a police officer says you committed a violation, doesn’t mean you will be convicted. Like any other crime, the offense has to be proven by supporting evidence to result in a conviction. Often, there are defenses and mitigating factors that can be presented by an experienced attorney. When you simply elect to pay the fine without challenge, you will be convicted and points will be assessed. Call the Law Office of William B.
