Bradford County Traffic Tickets - Traffic Defense in Starke, Lawtey & Hampton

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 and Lawtey. The towns of Brooker and Hampton do not have their own police force and the towns traffic laws are enforced by the Bradford County Sheriff's Office.  The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) also issues citatations on the roads of Bradford County. Starke is the county seat of Bradford County.  All traffic hearings take place in Starke.

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

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.
