Fort Walton Beach Traffic Crimes Attorney

Understanding Traffic Related Crimes in Florida

At one point or another, most drivers receive a citation while on the road. Whether it be for speeding or another kind of moving violation, these are frustrating for drivers but not necessarily serious. In some cases, however, drivers are charged with crimes for their alleged misconduct behind the wheel. In these cases, drivers can face more than just fine and it is advised that they seek defense counsel to explore their legal options.

If have been charged for a crime on the road, then we invite you to contact our experienced team of Fort Walton Beach traffic crime attorneys at Vanover Law Firm today. Our Okaloosa County criminal defense lawyers have handled thousands of criminal cases, including many traffic crimes. We know how the state of Florida pursues convictions in these matters and what can be done to minimize the effects they have on our clients’ lives.

Dismissals and reductions can be possible in these traffic crime cases. Contact us today to request a free case evaluation.

What Are the Most Common Traffic Violations?

Unlike moving violations—which simply go on your driving record—traffic crimes are actual misdemeanor and felony offenses. That means that they can result in fines and incarceration if a guilty verdict is reached.

Examples of traffic crimes in Florida include:

  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Unlawful use of an identification card
  • Expired/no valid driver's license
  • Reckless driving
  • Letting an unauthorized person operate the vehicle
  • Highway racing
  • Refusal to submit to a BAC test

These are just a few of many possible traffic-related crimes included in our state statutes. At Vanover Law Firm, we're ready to dig deep into your traffic crime case, examine all the evidence, review all relevant video footage, and speak to witnesses to ensure that any possible shortcoming in the state's case against you is properly addressed in the courtroom.

The time to start mounting an effective, compelling defense is now. Call our team at (850) 999-0006 today.
