Traffic Infractions


If you drive in South Florida frequently enough, the odds of your being pulled over and issued a traffic citation for speeding, disobeying a traffic control device, or some other moving or non-moving violation are extraordinarily high. In the state of Florida, if you are ticketed for a moving violation, you will have to pay a fine and points will be assessed to your license. Criminal defense and ticket lawyer Michael Salazar represents Florida drivers who have received traffic tickets in Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. His familiarity with Florida traffic laws and the legal requirements of police officers issuing uniform traffic citations has led to thousands of tickets being dismissed before or at trial.

Traffic Infractions in FL

If you are issued a citation for a moving violation in Broward, Palm Beach, or Dade County, you will be given three options to dispense with it: pay the fine, go to court, or attend traffic school. All three options have their downfalls.

  • Pay the Fine: If you pay the fine, not only will it cost you the amount the ticket, but you will also accrue points. If your insurance company sees a moving violation on your driving record or points on your FL driver’s license, in most cases, they will raise your premiums.
  • Driving School: If you are, in fact, eligible for driving school, you will not be assessed points, but you will have to pay the full amount of the traffic fine as well as the cost for a four or eight hour course on your own time.
  • Fight Your Charges in Court: Court may be the riskiest of the three options if you attempt it without an attorney. If you go to court and the officer doesn’t show, your charges will be dismissed. If he or she is there, however, it’s unlikely that you will be able to beat the ticket. In addition, you may have to make two or three court appearances before you are able to argue your case in front of a magistrate.
