Tampa Traffic Violation Lawyer
Many people assume there is no need to secure legal representation when they are facing a traffic ticket citation. Nothing could be further from the truth. Depending on the circumstances, a traffic ticket citation can lead to high fines, license suspension, and even the permanent revocation of your driving privileges in Florida. There is too much at stake to leave the consequences of a traffic ticket citation up to a judge alone. The Tampa traffic violation lawyers at The Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group can take on your case and do all we can to ensure your traffic ticket citation has a minimal impact on your finances and driving record.
A traffic ticket citation leads to points and fines ranging from roughly $70 to more than $300. A traffic violation typically results in 3 to 6 points being added to your record. After a certain number of points, your license can be suspended. You may be eligible for a basic driver education course that can lead to a reduction in the number of points on your record. Reducing the number of points may mean the difference between keeping your driver’s license and losing it for a lengthy amount of time. A reduction in points can also protect you from having to pay higher car insurance premiums.
Loss of License
The amount of points accumulated in a specific period of time determines how long you will lose your license for. An accumulation of 12 points in a 12 month period will lead to a 30 day suspension of driving privileges. 18 points in an 18 month period can yield a 3 month license suspension. If you accumulate 24 points in 36 months, you could face losing your license for 1 year. Losing your license for even a short amount of time can affect your job, disrupt your family life, and damage your reputation.
