Traffic Offenses in Daytona
Defense Of All Types of Alleged Violations
Although the top speed of the relatively few automobiles on the road a hundred years ago was probably about thirty miles per hour, the earliest traffic laws were limited to those against speeding. Most other driving behavior was governed by common sense rather than legal rules.
How times have changed. Today, as in most states, traffic laws in Florida are numerous and complex. Nearly every Daytona Beach-area driver will eventually receive a citation for some sort of alleged traffic offenses, and the financial and other consequences can be severe – points on your driving record increased insurance costs and even possible loss of your driving privileges. (See our other summary for discussion of suspended license defense).
But even if you really did make that illegal turn or run that red light, it may be possible to get the points withheld on the ticket or plead to a less serious offense. By working with an experienced Florida traffic ticket attorney, you can challenge the ticket and the associated points/fines.
