Sadly, Red Light Cameras Survive Another Year

I'm a perpetual optimist, which is why I'm always excited whenever I see that the Florida legislature is taking up the issue of repealing Red Light Cameras.  I'm always thinking, like a Cubs fan, that this could be the year.

As much as I love technology, I must say, there are some things that I miss.  Do you remember tossing the coins in the bucket when you were about to enter a toll road.

It's been a while since I've written about Red Light Cameras and I thought it was time for an update.  There has been some news that is both discouraging and optimistic (if that's possible).

Should I Really Hire a Lawyer for My Traffic Ticket?

I wrote a blog the other day which was based on an observation I had in court, which was how people who don't hire an attorney (or who hire the wrong attorney) have their case handled in court.  Sadly, it's a lot of "hope the cop doesn't show" legal strategy.  Not much of a strategy.

As I was sitting in court today I had an opportunity to watch not only the other traffic attorneys, but the unrepresented people (that would be the people who choose to fight a ticket themselves and not hire a lawyer), and I noticed something interesting.  Anyone can get ONE traffic ticket dismissed.  Here's how.

If Florida Increased the Maximum Speed Limit, Would Speeding Tickets Increase?

 
Florida is considering increasing the speed limit to 75 MPH on certain roads.

The Florida Legislature is thinking about increasing the speed limits on certain highways across the state, including bumping up the limit to 75 MPH on certain roads. Let me ask you, do you think you would still get a speeding ticket or is 75 fast enough for you?  Remember, it wasn't too long ago we saw the increase to 70 as a big deal and we still see plenty of people exceeding 70.

Red Light Camera Ticket Refunds May Be Coming

 
Before 2010, it may have been illegal to issue red light traffic tickets in Florida.

The building wave of momentum against Florida’s red light cameras may have reached its crest last week when the Florida Supreme Court finally pointed its gavel at the controversial traffic ticket devices – even if it wasn’t exactly how detractors of the cameras might have dreamed. Depending upon how the court rules you could be in line for a refund if you received and paid for a red light traffic ticket before 2010.

How Long Do Points Stay on Your License and Why it Matters

 
Points and your license: a costly pairing.

Traffic tickets are the bane of many a driver’s existence (as this blog routinely points out!). And, unfortunately, they are often the gift that keeps on giving. That’s because the points that come attached to many traffic infractions --including speeding, red lights, and other moving violations -- stay on your record longer than you might think. The damage points on your license do is extensive and long-lasting.

Avoid Paying Costly Fines in Broward's Teen Traffic Court

 
Teen drivers can be a danger to themselves.

Getting behind the wheel in your teenage years can be overwhelming and dangerous but a new Teen Traffic Court in Broward is focused on getting help and education to all drivers under 18, instead of lumping them in with everyone else.

The Only Way to Save Time and Money in Traffic Court

 
Spend the shortest amount of time in traffic court.

Time is money. Trust us, we’re lawyers and we know what we are talking about. So when clients ask us “How long it will take to fight a traffic ticket in court?” the answer is . . . it depends. There are a number of factors that can determine how long a person will be forced to sit and wait in traffic court, but there are things you can do to save time.  But please note, there really is only one way to save both time and money in traffic court.
