I am a company truck driver, day-cab pulling an almost empty 53' trailer. I was driving 1/2 mile behind a contractor towing a backhoe on a dual axle trailer. The contractor slowed and seemed to have stopped, on a two lane highway with an emergen...
Most out of town attorneys aren't actually going to travel to Defuniak Springs to contest this citation, unless you were paying $1000+ fee. However, there are many well connected traffic attorneys who provide statewide representation using their network of attorneys who regularly handle citations in each particular county - which should reduce your fear of the "outside attorneys being viewed hostile." If your choice is to either pay the ticket or fight it on your own, I would strongly suggest just paying it, but your best option is to contact a reputable and experienced traffic attorney who will give you some straight talk and let you know how things work in that particular county (likelihood of success vs. getting enhanced penalties).See question
I've read online and the statue calls for this, only if you've been in an accident rear-ending somebody, which did not happen. I do NOT have $166 to throw away to a cop trying to meet his end of the month quota. What can I do?
You can fight this ticket, but you should not fight it by yourself (you will likely lose and end up paying more than $166 and/or receive points). I highly recommend that you hire an experienced and reputable traffic attorney who routinely practices in Pinellas County. If you insist on fighting it without an attorney, DON'T (if you take this advice, you will likely save yourself time, money, and a conviction - if you are eligible elect school and do so prior to the 30 day deadline).See question
Hills borough county . Tickets got sent to collection agency and I need the name
LINEBARGER, GOGGAN, BLAIR & SAMPSON, LLP........ But before you go paying the fine, late fees and the 40% collection fee, you should know that a Tampa Ticket Attorney may be able to get the late fees and collection fees waives and potentially get your ticket dismissed (or the fine reduced) - In short, before you pay, talk to a Tampa Ticket Attorney and see if you can save money by hiring an attorney. Not all attorneys know how to do this efficiently and effectively, do your research prior to hiring an attorney for your ticket(s).See question

You can address deficiencies and irregularities with your copy of the charging document (citation) at the time of hearing, but it is important that you know that the officer has the ability to amend (correct) any issues with the citation at any time prior to trial (the trial is normally considered to have commenced once the witnesses are at the podium and sworn). It sounds like you would like to assert a defense based on a lack of notice (of the offense charged) - you would be telling the Court that you were prejudiced in the preparation of your defense due to the speed being withheld until the time of trial. This defense works with some Judges, while other Judges will react poorly to (or find humor in) such an assertion. I highly recommend that you hire an experienced and reputable traffic ticket attorney, you will likely save time and money (and avoid a conviction.... if you proceed to hearing and rely on this defense, you will likely be convicted).See question

The best thing you can do is hire an attorney to remove a prior "conviction" from your son's record and provided that only has three convictions, this amended disposition should lift the five year habitual traffic offender revocation. Not all attorneys know how to do this and a lack of familiarity with this removal process could result in substantial delays (in removing the revocation) or the Court denying the attorney's request to remove the conviction (and your son's license would remain revoked). An experienced and efficient traffic lawyer should be able to remove the HTO revocation for a very competitive fee.See question

Depending on what type of criminal traffic offense you are charged with, the case may be able to be resolved within a few days, while others may take months. Call around to local traffic court attorneys in Pinellas County. Generally, an attorney who routinely handles these types of cases will be more efficient, which should translate into a more competitive fee. (that you may be able to pay all at once).See question
Where in Miami can a go. Its a court order for 6 month. a call all they have is the Ignition interlock. not a visual.
You may want to ask for clarification from your public defender / private lawyer, if you had one. The majority of DUI penalties are mandatory (unless the charge is reduced / or diversion program is available) and it would be unusual for a Judge to substitute the ignition interlock requirement for a "visual alcohol monitoring" device. If this was imposed as a condition of probation, ask your probation officer for a list of approved vendors. I found a link for Scram Systems, which appears to manufacture a remote breath testing device with GPS and facial recognition capabilities (via camera) that may meet the requirements imposed by the court. Their website has a list of vendors in Florida.See question

6 months probation for 2 counts driving on restricted license and possession of alcohol by minor. I no longer have restricted license.
No, a speeding ticket should not trigger a VOP. Should you tell your PO? Depends on the terms of your probation, but generally, it's better to tell the PO rather than the PO finding out on his/her own. It would be best to keep your record as clean as possible from this point forward, hire a local traffic ticket attorney to fight this speeding citation.See question
