Bradford County Traffic Tickets - Traffic Defense in Bradford County

Bradford County is located between Gainesville in Alachua County and Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida. Several agencies issue traffic tickets within Bradford County. The main police agencies are those of Starke, Lawtey and Hampton. The town of Brooker does not have its own police force. The Bradford County Sherriff's Office and the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) also patrol the roads of Bradford County and issue citations. Starke is the county seat of Bradford County.

Many people from out of the area are caught in the Lawtey school zone which occupies a short stretch of Highway US 301. There is another school zone also on US 301 within the city of Starke. Whether the infraction is issued by Starke or Lawtey, all cases are heard in the Bradford County Courthouse located in Starke, Florida. Tickets issued in school zones are subject to double fines. In Bradford County, US 301 passes through Lawtey, Starke and Hampton and can be very congested as it travels through Starke.

Sometimes the Bradford County Sheriff's Office or the Starke Police will write on the citation that a person has ninety (90) days to respond to a citation. This is contrary to Florida law. If this happened on your ticket and you have gone beyond thirty (30) days, then you can no longer elect traffic school to avoid the points on your license. Your only choices are to either get points or attempt to get the points removed by the court.

The office handles all criminal and traffic matters in Bradford County, it's municipalities and the surrounding areas. To hire a lawyer for your traffic ticket or criminal citation or arrest, click, call or fill out the form on this page.
