i was in courtney campbell beach on my way home ,i passed an slow SUV and was a police officer he do not like it and he give me a ticket ,i have a clean licence and class A and not record, I DONT WANT TO HAVE POINTS ON MY LICENCE,HELP PLEASE
I've handled thousands of tickets in the Tampa Bay area and in my opinion, the best way to fight this ticket is to hire a reputable and experienced traffic lawyer - definitely do not handle this on your own (could potentially get a very harsh sentence, depending on what the officer says in court). With the right lawyer, you will likely avoid the points (if the ticket isn't dismissed completely). Whenever an officer is upset/irritated when issuing a ticket, you need to have an attorney who can either smooth things over with the officer or one who can talk to the Judge directly to try to obtain a "no points, no school" outcome (pre-hearing).See question
i got a speeding ticket today im 21 un employed and need some way of making money to pay off the ticket plus taking driving class to get the point taken off my license. the ticket is a 243 dollar ticket
There's plenty of ways to make money to pay off your ticket and pay for the school. If you can't get a job, make one. Walk your neighbor's dog, drive for Uber or Lyft (if it is legal in your area, check local laws first), babysit your cousin's sister's daughter, start a fitness bootcamp (or a crossfit gym using heavy trash items), be a street performer. Panhandle (where permitted) with a sign explaining your situation, you would probably make enough in one day to pay the ticket and go to a nice restaurant too. Don't let pride get in the way of taking care of business.See question
My bf made a stupid mistake. He used a bit of cocaine for a toothache. First violation. His orginal charge was felony battery , what are our options?
You should contact an attorney who has experience dealing with felony violations of probation in Pinellas County (or whatever county this case is in). This technical violation may result in his probation being modified, reinstated, or revoked (adjudicated guilty) - he may also be sentenced to up to five years in prison. You need to contact a reputable criminal defense attorney (or if you cannot afford a private attorney, contact the public defender's office).See question

Speeding tickets are not criminal in Florida, except in very limited circumstances. Since your offense is likely not criminal, it cannot be expunged from your record. Record expunction / sealing is a process that is handled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and it only applies to criminal offenses. When it comes to traffic offenses, my personal experiences have taught me to tell my clients "never say never", as I have achieved many things that are technically impossible. So, while it is very uncommon and often impracticable to remove a civil infraction (like unlawful speed) from your driving record, it may not be impossible. However, the costs of pursuing this would likely outweigh any potential benefits (of having it removed). If insurance rates are your main concern, Florida law prevents insurance companies from raising your premium during your current policy period since you were not convicted (and no claims were paid as a result of the offense). If you have other concerns, like immigration or employment issues, I would recommend consulting with an experienced traffic lawyer to determine whether pursuing the removal of this ticket is worth the cost (and it is very difficult to do / high probability that the lawyer cannot remove it).See question
Yes, it is possible to get points removed and I would highly recommend that you contact a Florida traffic lawyer who has experience in this area of law. I have personally helped thousands of individuals with their traffic ticket issues and I have also helped "clean up" the driving record of many CDL holders, public transit drivers, taxi drivers, car dealership employees, etc. by removing points and also, in some cases, re-opening a case and getting it dismissed. Each County and Judge approaches these matters differently, but overall, the Courts are generally willing to help a driver out, if their employment is at risk. Contact an experienced traffic lawyer for a free consultation and learn what your options are (and the likelihood of successfully removing the points).See question
They sent me a letter saying my license would be suspended because of no proof of insurance on vehicle. Well, the vehicle was totaled and I don't have it anymore nor drive it. What do I need to do to make sure my license is not suspended due to no...
You may be able to have an experienced traffic lawyer remove this suspension for you. It depends on whether the suspension is an "FR Court Ordered PIP" or an "FR Cancellation" - I have helped many of my clients remove the "FR Court Ordered PIP" suspension, which also removes the SR-22 requirement that is required upon reinstatement. There are not that many attorneys who have experience with this area of law, so I would suggest you contact an experienced traffic / license suspension attorney for a free consultation.See question
What is my legal rights in this case
To obtain the best answer to your question(s), you will need to contact a local criminal attorney and schedule a consultation. You will need to provide additional information to have a more thorough evaluation of your legal issues, but I would not recommend providing that information on an open forum like this.See question
I used to live in California and believe my license might be suspended. I have since moved to Florida. Can I simply cancel my former license in California, and then apply for a new license in Florida? This way when the question comes up on the ...
Yes, you are definitely missing something here. Get your CA suspension issue corrected before applying for your FL license - it would likely prevent you from obtaining your FL license anyways. Florida's Dept of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) doesn't issue licenses based on representations by individuals that they have no out of state suspensions - that data is most likely readily available to them and you really don't want to be walking the line by (potentially) obtaining a license by fraud.See question

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
