High Speed Violations
High Speed Violations and Racing
Being cited for driving at very high speeds is legally covered by statutes on reckless driving and is not just a speeding ticket. Reckless driving is covered under Florida statute 316.192 and is defined as anyone who drives a car, truck or other vehicle with a complete disregard for the safety of other individuals on the road. Driving at excessively high speeds or racing are both covered by this statute and have serious penalties if convicted. If you have been charged with a reckless driving violation for driving at high speeds you need to speak to an Orange County traffic ticket attorney at The Ticket Team to learn how we can help you.
If you are arrested for reckless driving at very high speed you could face up to 90 days in jail, a fine of up to $500 and four points on your driver’s license. But if you are charged with illegal racing, you could face up to a year in jail, a $500 to $1000 fine and risk a revocation of your license for a year. Our firm specializes in traffic offenses and our lawyers have both served as state prosecutors. We understand the way a prosecutor will present their case against you and we know how to construct an effective defense against such charges.
