Habitual Traffic Offenses
In Florida, the designation of a habitual traffic offender carries with it a stiff penalties and severe punishments. We encourage you to contact a Marco Island and Naples habitual traffic offenses defense lawyer at our office before suffering serious consequences.
In certain situations, if a driver accumulates enough points on his or her license, he or she risks being classified as a habitual traffic offender. To be classified as a repeat offender, you need to accumulate 15 moving violations or three serious convictions for crimes such as DUI, operating a vehicle with a suspended license or vehicular manslaughter.
The penalty for being labeled a habitual traffic offender is a five-year driver’s license suspension. If you are caught driving while under this designation it could be charged as a third-degree felony conviction and would carry a potential five-year prison sentence and a $5,000 fine.
Do not face this designation alone. Let one of our skilled criminal defense lawyers advocate on your behalf and work toward protecting your driving privileges.
