Me and my girlfriend were heading towards Marion County to enjoy Memorial day weekend with some friends. Traffic was pretty heavy and we were a little late so we might have been going a little fast(around 75-80),but for the most part just keeping ...
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 into use and it shall be retested by a jeweler or watch repair-smith not less than once each six (6) months thereafter. The jeweler or watch repair-smith shall issue after each test, a certificate dated, signed and witnessed by the jeweler or watch repair-smith showing the degree of accuracy." However, if the stopwatch was a digital model, the device "may be tested by a certified electronics technician" not less than once every six months. Once the officer has established these criteria, a rebuttable presumption regarding the reliability of the device / your vehicle speed is established, which if often difficult to overcome. The majority of these types of cases are not won by attacking the reliability of the stopwatch - they are most commonly defeated on other evidentiary / legal bases. Contact an Orlando ticket attorney to discuss your case - don't try to do this on your own.See question
My seatbelts sit very low on my convertible, so low that they don't fit right over your collarbone , if I put them over they restrict my arm on the steering wheel so I put it under my arm
Either you are not wearing your seatbelt properly or your vehicle's seatbelt assembly does not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, 49 C.F.R. s. 571.208. Both scenarios are a violation of 316.614 and it is unlikely that you will prevail as a pro se defendant. Just pay the ticket and correct the issue with your seatbelt assembly, it could save your life.See question

to have stop me for and I was never mirandized before they began to search my vehicle or at all until I was booked in do I have grounds for the case to be dismissed
The short answer to your question is no. The officer's failure to write a citation for the alleged traffic offense does not render the traffic stop illegal, nor does the officer's failure to read miranda render the search illegal. However, you may still have a viable legal defense to this charge, but you cannot fight this on your own. Contact a local criminal defense attorney to discuss your case.See question

No....Why don't you find out when the traffic court is in session and watch other people get hammered rather than actually setting your own case for hearing.See question

Hire a lawyer who routinely resolves HTO revocations in your local area. Ask the attorney how many cases they have handled and how many times they were able to get the HTO lifted. Don't try to do it yourself.See question

From the limited information that you have provided, my guess is that the ticket was dismissed due to a lack of jurisdiction because the accident occurred on private property and no valid enforcement agreement was in effect.See question
My license got suspended after I paid my tickets for driving while license suspended
You would likely face a felony driving while license suspended charge, which carries a potential penalty of up to five years in prison and up to $5000 fine. From the limited information that you provided, it appears that your HTO (five year revocation) was the result of civil infraction convictions. If that is the case, an experienced traffic attorney in your local area should be able to get your license reinstated within four to six weeks (sometimes only one week), so long as you have no other suspensions on your license. If you continue to drive while suspended, you will likely be caught, so do yourself a favor and immediately hire an attorney to reinstate your license.See question

Civil infractions are not required to be signed unless the offense requires a mandatory court appearance (30+ over the limit, SBI, fatality, littering). Although the lack of signature is not a valid defense, you may still have a valid legal defense to this citation. However, you should contact an experienced traffic ticket attorney rather than handling this on your own because only an experienced attorney who regularly practices in your local traffic court will know the effectiveness of various legal arguments with the particular Judge / Magistrate that will be presiding over your case.See question
I need an attorney to help me get my license back, but I don't have a lot of money. If you are an affordable lawyer please comment and I will e-mail you. Thank you!!
You may end up paying the most affordable attorney a non-refundable fee and end up in the same position, if that cheap attorney doesn't know what he/she is doing. Generally, the fees quoted by reputable and experienced lawyers are much less than the insurance premiums that you will pay over the next decade due to being classified as a habitual traffic offender.See question
