Careless Driving Defense
Receiving a Careless Driving charge in Florida is a civil offense that can lead to hefty fines and points on your license. The traffic defense attorneys at the Tix Team will help you understand the charges against you and help fight lower any potential consequences.
What is a Careless Driving citation?
According to Florida Statute 316.1925, careless driving is driving without prudent and careful regard for the safety of other people and property. It’s a moving violation that can result in high fines, points on your license, and increased insurance rates.
This citation is usually issued when the officer cannot find a specific violation to a traffic violation. It’s most commonly given when a law enforcement officer believes you are at fault for a car accident or did not witness the actual events leading to the crash. This violation is different than Reckless Driving, which is a criminal offense.
What are your options?
You don’t have to automatically pay your careless driving ticket just because you may feel like you caused the crash. When you pay the citation, you admit guilt and have to face consequences like points on your license and higher insurance premiums.
Since the law enforcement officer that issued you the citation does not have to witness the crash and has the rely on the word of those involved, there are many possible ways to defend yourself in court. The Tix Team is a group of highly experienced traffic lawyers who have handled thousands of careless driving tickets across Florida.
How can the Tix Team help you?
Upon hiring us to handle your careless driving ticket, one of our defense attorneys will review the specific facts of your case and determine what the best course of action is to get it dismissed. Sometimes we can get the ticket dismissed for a legal issue or a factual issue or an issue with one of the witnesses the state needs to have to prove the case. We can also get it dismissed during a hearing.
If those options are not possible, then we will negotiate with the court, the witnesses and law enforcement to ensure you get the lowest fine possible, no points on your license, and avoid traffic school.
