Florida’s Point System
As previously mentioned, Florida uses a point system to hold drivers accountable for their actions. If a driver makes a mistake, they will receive “points” for the offense. The greater or more dangerous the offense, the more points the driver will receive. If a driver accumulates a certain number of points during a short timespan, their license may be suspended or revoked. Depending on the type of citation, these points may result in costly fines, mandatory traffic school, or even jail.
Types of Traffic Violations
Common types of criminal traffic citations include:
- Aggressive or reckless driving
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Driving with a suspended license
- Driving without a license
- Hit and run (Leaving the Scene of an Accident)
Common types of civil traffic citations include:
- Driving without headlights
- Failure to yield, stop, or signal
- Illegal passing
- Illegal U-turn
- Running a red light
- Unsafe lane changes
Using a Non-Valid Driver’s License
If you are caught driving with a non-valid driver’s license, an officer could issue a traffic violation for the offense. All Florida drivers are required, by law, to carry a vaild and current driver’s license whenever they’re behind the wheel, and failure to do so can result in criminal charges.
While some parties are exempt from this driver’s license statute, like tractor operators, golf cart operators, and certain individuals with licenses from other states, the vast majority of drivers must have a license with them when they take to the road. Breaking this statute can result in a second-degree misdemeanor, which can result in up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. If you find yourself facing a no driver’s license criminal charge, make sure you contact our firm immediately.
