What Is Fleeing & Eluding?

When on the road, we are all trained to pull over to the side of the road when signaled to by police. When a driver does not pull over when law enforcement directs them to, this is considered fleeing and eluding. Fleeing and eluding is described as a third-degree felony in Florida Statues 316.1935.

A third-degree felony in Florida can result in:

  • Up to five years in prison
  • Up to $5,000 in fines

This statute also describes aggravated fleeing and eluding (a second-degree felony) and aggravated fleeing and eluding with serious bodily injury (a first-degree felony). If you or a loved one have been charged with any of these crimes, then the time to start mounting an effective defense is now. Call Vanover Law Firm today to start the process.
