Speeding tickets are the most common traffic ticket issued in Florida, including Miami-Dade and Broward County. But how serious is a speeding ticket?
14 MPH OR LESS OVER THE SPEED LIMIT
Getting a traffic ticket for going 15 mph or less over the speed limit carries with it a fine along with 3 points on your driving record. The amount of fine is usually listed on the back of the ticket and is determined by each individual county. For example, in Miami-Dade County it’s a $219 fine. In addition, just one speeding ticket can affect your insurance premiums.
What are your options? You can pay the fine and get the points, attend traffic school if eligible, or contact our speeding ticket lawyer at (305) 775-3720 and fight back.
15 TO 29 MPH OVER THE SPEED LIMIT
A speeding ticket for going 15 mph or more over the speed limit carries with it a higher fine, up to $294 in Miami-Dade County, along with 4 points on your license. Again, you may pay the fine and receive the points, pay the fine and elect traffic school, or fight your speeding ticket and protect your license.
30 MPH OR MORE OVER THE SPEED LIMIT
Driving 30 mph or more over the speed limit will require a mandatory court appearance. Simply paying the fine is not an option. In addition, if you are found guilty of speeding you can be facing an even higher fine, 4 points on your license, and license suspension.
Fortunately, an experienced speeding ticket lawyer can attend court on your behalf and fight to keep your license in shape.
50 MPH OR MORE OVER THE SPEED LIMIT
If you are charged with driving 50 mph over the speed limit you will be facing a $1000 penalty. On a second offense, the fine is up to $2500 and your license will be revoked for one year. On a third offense you will be criminally charged with a third degree felony, a fine of up to $5000, and the loss of your driver’s license for up to 10 years.
