Speeding and other School Zone Citations

School zones are heavily monitored. Therefore, in traffic ticket defense, we seeseveral citations issued to people for failing to stop at a red light (or behind the stop bar), failing to yield, failure to obey a traffic control device and of course speeding through a school zone. The cities on US Highway 301 (Waldo and Lawtey) still write a bunch of tickets even though their signage has improved over the years.

North Florida Traffic Ticket Defense

Traffic ticket defense can be rewarding and frustrating. Florida has 67 counties. That means 67 different ways of doing things. Then within those counties different judges and hearing officers with different assistants that all seem to like things done differently too. That is the frustrating part. This is also why it is important that if you want to hire a lawyer to handle your traffic citation that you select an attorney that is from the county or regularly practices within the county where you received the ticket. Consider whether you would drive from the other end of the state to either Marion County or Columbia County for the fee we charge. Do you really want an attorney from a big city down south handling your traffic case in Alachua County or Bradford County? If you are a CDL driver, and need an amendment to the citation to keep your job, this should be an important consideration.

Vehicular Homicide, Reckless Driving - Criminal Traffic cases with one difference

In order to prove vehicular homicide in Florida, the State must prove reckless driving plus one additional fact which is the death of a person.  Therefore, vehicular homicide is simply stated reckless driving plus a death caused by the reckless driving. 

Fleeing or Eluding: Another Criminal Traffic Case

A criminal traffic case of fleeing became news recently as an alleged car chase that crossed Sumter and Marion Counties came to a stop in Alachua County. Sometimes a person accused of fleeing and eluding the police will also be charged with reckless driving, resisting arrest or obstruction of justice. Fleeing or eluding can also be charged as what is known as aggravated fleeing. Aggravated fleeing or eluding can also be charged with serious bodily injury or death.

Waldo & Lawtey Florida - the Two and Only Speed Traps

According to AAA, Waldo, Florida and Lawtey, Florida are "Traffic Traps", more commonly referred to as speed traps. AAA lists two speed traps in the entire country and they happen to be Waldo and Lawtey. Both towns count on people just paying the ticket instead of hiring a traffic ticket lawyer.
