A traffic ticket in Hillsborough or Pinellas County is not a simple
matter. Paying the ticket does not make it go away. The Florida DMV puts
points on your license for most traffic infractions. Get more than two
tickets, and you could lose your license. Just one traffic violation
could cost you thousands of dollars in higher insurance premiums. Those
insurance increases stay with you for more than three years after you
pay the ticket. That's why it's vital that you defend yourself against a
traffic summons, even if it is your first violation.
Florida's point system for moving violations is tough. But simply
because police officer says you've committed a violation doesn't mean
you're automatically guilty. You have a right to plead your innocence
and challenge the evidence. You should explore every avenue to avoid
violations on your driving record.
There are numerous procedures available to avoid a traffic-ticket
conviction, or a reduced violation. At Carlson, Meissner, Hart and
Hayslett our attorney's will look for every possible way to get your
fine dismissed or reduced and minimize the effect on your driving
record. In some cases, we may be able to have the ticket completely
dismissed. We'll do whatever it takes to ensure the best possible
outcome for you.
