    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...

    A criminal violation, as opposed to a civil infraction, can result in more significant penalties, including jail time. You should contact a local traffic attorney or criminal lawyer to discuss your case.

    The stopwatch is an approved speed measurement device in the State of Florida. Prior to the officer presenting testimony regarding the alleged speed of your vehicle, that officer must first establish that he/she is certified as a competent operator of such device (by present a training certificate to the Court) and that the stopwatch was properly calibrated prior to use. If the stopwatch used was an analog model, the device "shall be tested by a jeweler or watch repair-smith prior to being put...

    Yes, you need an attorney and in the future, don't even think about talking to law enforcement without first obtaining advice / representation from a qualified attorney in your area.

    You need to file a "motion to withhold adjudication" or "motion to withdraw plea and vacate sentence" (or something similar, depends on local practices). Once this motion is granted, the points will be removed and the FR points suspension will be erased from your driving record and as a result, you will no longer be required to have SR22 insurance (just regular insurance coverage). You should hire an attorney to handle this for you.

    Depending on the practices in your county, a traffic attorney may be able to file a motion to remove these citations from collections and set them for a hearing. Once a motion / infraction hearing is scheduled, you will be allowed to pay the late fees (not the entire fine) and have your license cleared while these citations get resolved in court. The FDOT representatives are normally pretty lenient when multiple toll violations are issued, so long as there was a legitimate issue with notice or...

    Hire a private defense attorney or get a public defender. You will have some issues with your bond (cash or surety) because of your failure to appear. A defense attorney should be able to get the warrant removed without you appearing in court, depending on the Judge. Most driving on suspended cases can be resolved without any jail time or probation. You may be facing a five year license revocation depending on your priors. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me for a free...
