Sarasota Traffic Offense Lawyer
Call Before Paying Your Traffic Ticket in Florida
Traffic offenses can carry severe consequences, especially those that are more than a simple infraction. In all cases, however, traffic violations are criminal acts that violate the laws of the road. Traffic offenses range from a speeding ticket to driving under the influence (DUI). Consequences associated with a minor traffic violation can be increased when several infractions take place during a short time frame.
Traffic offenses can result in:
- Steep fines
- Jail time
- Driver's license suspension
