    Points can accumulate and your license may possibly be suspended, a speeding ticket conviction can result in 3-4 points being assessed to your license (if no crash was involved). 12 points in 12 months will result in a 30 day license suspension and the DMV will require SR-22 insurance or it's equivalent prior to reinstatement. Contact a Miami ticket attorney, they should be able to get the points removed from your record.

    If you were habitualized (five year revocation) and you drive while you are revoked, then yes, you may be charged with a felony. If you are asking about whether these prior criminal offenses will "drop off" of your driving record, the quick answer is no. This is a common misconception - driving offenses never really "drop off" of your driving record, but normal civil tickets tend to have less of an effect after a few years because points suspensions span from 12 months to 24 months and...

    It's traffic court--> Florida traffic statutes + Florida Rules of Traffic Court + Florida Administrative Code + Florida Constitution + US Constitution + MUTCD + Florida Evidence Code. Once you master the application of these fine texts and watch several hundred pro-se defendants fail in court, you will begin to understand the meaning of "traffic court" and the value of experienced legal counsel.

    Yes, it will likely show up on your Florida record - I routinely see Georgia citations on my Clients' FL driving records.

    Sounds like a situation where DCF needs to get involved. No one should be touching minor children in this manner, not even other minor children.

    Sounds like you got a warrant for failing to set a court date within 10 days of receiving the citation - this is fairly common. I handle many of these warrants each week - we can normally get them removed in one day depending on why you failed to set up the court date. Please feel free to call my office at the number below to discuss this matter.

  8. Can I get pulled over for having a HID conversion light kit in my car? Do I have the right to refuse a window tint test?

    Aftermarket HID headlight conversions may or may not be illegal depending on the hue and angle of the light. Generally, these kits are made for "off road" purposes only and people will often put them in headlight housings that were not originally designed to handle the high intensity discharge, which will often result in the light pattern dispersing in a manner that is blinding to other drivers. Any modifications intended for off road use only that alter the original manufacturer's specs cannot...

    PTI is normally around 4-6 months long, depends on the local practices. While it is unlikely that they will test you for anabolic substances, you should consider reducing your intake of such substances so that you're not in supra-physiological ranges during the PTI program. Also, HPTA shutdown can cause harsh side effects and you should consult an internist or endocrinologist to help you through this process.

    Your issue is likely related to the accumulation of points and serious traffic offense convictions, which resulted in a habitual traffic offender revocation. The best thing you can do is contact an experienced Florida attorney who routinely removes points-based suspensions and habitual traffic offender (HTO) revocations. Generally, you will save a substantial amount of money once these suspensions are removed because you will no longer be required to carry SR22 insurance and your record will...
