Traffic Offenses in Clearwater, Florida

Traffic offenses in Florida can be divided into three categories: non-moving violations, moving violations, and criminal violations.

Individuals who violate non-moving or moving traffic laws are unlikely to face jail time for these infractions since they are usually civil offenses.

Here are some examples of non-moving and moving traffic infractions that Fletcher & Fletcher can assist with:

  • Running red lights
  • Speeding
  • Failure to obey traffic control devices
  • Tailgating
  • Improper parking, passing, turning, backing, and lane changes
  • Texting and driving
  • Seat belt and child restraint violations
  • Unsafe vehicle equipment
  • Careless driving

In Florida, criminal traffic offenses are either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances. Fletcher & Fletcher can help you with the following offenses:

  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Hit and run
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • DUI manslaughter
  • Leaving the scene of a crash
  • Reckless driving
  • Fleeing from a law enforcement officer
  • Speeding 30-50 mph or more over the posted limit

While traffic infractions won't result in jail time, they can still result in heavy fines, community service, driving record points, and license restrictions.

Civil traffic offenses can carry fines of up to $1,000.

Criminal traffic offenses carry fines up to $5,000 and can result in incarceration. A misdemeanor traffic offense carries a fine of $500 or $1,000, while a felony traffic offense can carry a fine of $5,000, as well as jail time. If convicted, certain serious felony traffic offenses, such as DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal crash, carry mandatory minimum sentences.
