The Traffic Stop

The Traffic Stop

If you are accused of any crime or violation of traffic laws while operating a motor vehicle in Palm Beach County, Broward County, or Miami-Dade County, you don’t have to accept the penalties. You have the option to fight the ticket or the charges. Securing the best results can occur when a skilled attorney is on your side, no matter how challenging your situation may seem.

At “The Traffic Stop,” our attorneys are experienced in all traffic related charges, including both criminal and noncriminal matters for violations of the law while driving. For noncriminal matters that do not involve accidents, we offer a money back guarantee — no points, no school or your money back. Some restrictions apply, and court costs and fees may apply, in addition to the attorney fee.

Call (561) 515-5834 today to set up a free consultation. We can assess the individual details or your case and help you decide the best way to proceed. Our firm is proud to represent clients throughout South Florida, including the cities of West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Wellington, Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Miramar, Coral Springs, and Miami.

The Traffic Stop welcomes cases related to:

  • Red Light Camera Tickets – If you’ve received a red light camera ticket, the city may have broken state law in issuing your citation. A Florida Court of Appeals recently ruled a ticket was invalid because it was issued by a private company. Do not just pay your red light camera ticket. Call a lawyer at The Traffic Stop to discuss your options.

  • Speeding Tickets – Any traffic violation can be disputed, and you can take steps to protect your driving record. Enlist a skilled attorney to place your speeding ticket case in the hands of a tough traffic crime attorney.

  • Driving Under Suspension – Were you recently ticketed for driving with a suspended license in South Florida? You should have experienced legal counsel evaluate all of your options.

  • Reckless Driving – If no wreck or crash occurred, then the prosecutor basically has a hard time proving the charges. Even when a wreck or crash occurs, reckless driving requires a showing of something more than careless driving. 
  • Open Container – Any open container which has, or did have, some amount of alcohol can result in this charge. The Traffic Stop offers a free consultation and comprehensive review of your case. Our attorneys have years of experience in handling these charges, and we understand the seriousness of the matter.

Issues Facing Broward County Drivers After Citations or Arrests

Some of the most common questions people might have when facing any type of traffic infraction include questions about:

  • Fines – In most traffic violations, both criminal and noncriminal, there is some kind of fine that will be assessed if you are found guilty or plead guilty or no contest.

  • Points – Each traffic moving violation for which you are adjudicated, including speeding, leads to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles assessing points to your record. After a certain number of points within a certain time frame, your license will be suspended.

  • Traffic School – For some offenses, you can be required to attend classes for driver improvement.

  • License Suspension – After a certain amount of points within a certain timeframe, a failed or refused DUI test or other circumstances in the law, your license is suspended, and it is a criminal offense to drive.

  • Mandatory Court Appearance – For the vast majority of civil traffic tickets, no mandatory appearance in court is required. However, certain civil traffic infractions require a court appearance as provided in Florida Statute s. 318.19
  • Effect on Professional Licenses – A commercial driver may have his or her commercial driver license (CDL) suspended, revoked, or cancelled for any one of a number of criminal driving offenses listed under Florida Statute § 322.61. Alleged offenders with professional licenses may find themselves not only worrying about what happens inside the courtroom, but also what will happen with any investigations or hearings that may be conducted by their respective licensing boards. Make sure your case is backed with solid defense by contacting The Traffic Stop or, submitting a request for consultation.
