Traffic tickets have become so numerous that entire courts are now being separated from other branches of the legal system in some localities. Traffic tickets are issued for many different driving violations. Traffic tickets might not seem like any big deal at first. Traffic tickets written for certain driver’s license, registration, or insurance violations may be dismissed, with a court cost, by the Clerk if valid proof of compliance can be shown. Traffic tickets – also called citations – are used for minor violations of traffic law such as speeding, running a stop sign, or red light. Traffic tickets that are delinquent sometimes referred to an agency for collections, pursuant to Florida Statutes. Avoiding traffic tickets is the best way to save money on unnecessary fines. In many municipalities, traffic tickets are a big source of county revenues.
Besides speeding tickets, there are other violations which can add points to your driver license and in some cases may carry more points than a speeding ticket. It is therefore important to have an experienced traffic attorney represent you on these tickets also. Here’s just some of the many tickets, other than speeding, with which you can be charged.

- Reckless Driving

If you fail to respond to a traffic citation in the time allowed by the traffic ticket court a warrant will be issued for your arrest on the overdue traffic tickets. A traffic ticket is a notice issued by a law enforcement official to a motorist or other road user, accusing violation of traffic laws. Receiving multiple traffic tickets in a single year can result in a full suspension of your driving privileges.
If you receive points this may result in a negative impact on your insurance rates and could even result in the suspension of your license. Don’t let this happen to you! Contact the Law Office of Mitchell Frank to discuss your traffic problems.
