Florida law makes it possible for you to question a police officer who accuses you of breaking the law. Since that’s the case, traffic citation author Alex Carroll has advised that you should reschedule court appearances – so that the officer who wrote the infraction is less likely to attend.
Another option is to talk with the district attorney to see if you can minimize your speeding fine. Keep in mind that it is in the interest of the court to plea bargain since trial is also costly on Polk County’s side.
Please see our speeding citation FAQ pages to get more ideas about how to contest, beat, and get out of your traffic fine. It’s also prudent to speak with one of our Polk County speeding ticket lawyers.
Note: Did you know that the Florida statutes, containing the various regulations enacted in Tallahassee, are publicly available? See the sections on speeding and similar infractions in the Florida Uniform Traffic Control Law (Title XXIII, Chapter 316), sections 316.183-316.1926. (Parking tickets are covered in sections 316.194-316.1967.)
