Fort Lauderdale Traffic Violation Attorney


The Law Office of Steven J. Hammer, P.A. handle all traffic violations in Dade, Broward & Palm Beach Counties.  A traffic violation may be considered a civil infraction or a criminal offense.  A civil infraction is a traffic violation which may result in a fine and the possibility of points on your driver’s license which may lead to a suspension of your privilege to drive.  A criminal traffic offense is a more serious traffic violation which could subject you to criminal penalties such as jail or prison time, probation, and fines. Those who commit traffic violations receive a citation, which is an order to appear in court at a later date.  A citation or traffic ticket may be issued for the following traffic violations:

  • Improper Traffic Maneuvers
  • Careless & Reckless Driving
  • Driving at Excessive or Unsafe Speeds
  • Driving Too Slow
  • Unsafe Passing
  • Racing
  • Speeding to Avoid Arrest
  • Speeding in School/Construction Zones
  • Passing a Stopped School Bus
  • Failure to Yield Right of Way
  • Failure to Yield to a Pedestrian
  • Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle/Siren
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Signals
  • Failure to Obey an Officer
  • Failure to have Liability Insurance
  • Driving with Expired Registration
  • Driving with Suspended or Revoked License or Registration
  • Driving a Motorcycle on a Restricted Highway
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Driving While Impaired (DWI)
  • Hit and Run
  • Felony Death by Vehicle
  • Manslaughter or Negligent Homicide by Vehicle
For any traffic violation conviction, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can add points to your driving record, which could result in a negative impact on your insurance rates, and more importantly, could result in a suspension of your driving privileges.  An accumulation of those points may result in a suspended license for a specific amount of time or a permanently revoked license.  If one is caught driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license, the punishment may result in additional criminal and DMV penalties.
