What penalties are associated with traffic tickets?
Traffic tickets can be incurred for many different reasons, including speeding,
improper lane changes, and reckless driving. The penalties you face are
directly related to the seriousness of your crime.
Some of the most common ticket penalties include:
- Fines, usually between $100 and $700
- Points applied to your driving record
- License suspension and revocation
- Mandatory traffic school
Florida's point system determines the state of your driving record.
The system works as such:
- 12 points acquired in 12 months results in a 30 day license suspension
- 18 points acquired in 18 months results in a 3 month license suspension
- 24 points acquired during 36 months results in a 1 year license suspension
It is also important to note that when you receive traffic tickets or points
on your record, most insurance companies raise your rates. On top of fines,
this can present a serious financial burden.
