I purchased a new car on a Sunday (when the DMV is not open). I drove it home and got pulled over for not having the car registered in my name. I showed the officers the title with my name and signature and they still ticketed me. I had called The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor... Read more »
I suspect that technically the officer who ticketed you was correct. But if you can prove what the department told you, it may be possible to get the ticket dismissed. Can you get something in writing from whoever you talked to?
I cosigned for my daughter's car, so both of our names are on the title and registration. She was stopped for speeding, got a ticket, didn't have her driver's license with her, tried to give the deputy her driver's license number, but he didn't take the info. He just wrote... Read more »
You and your daughter need to attend the hearing, you as the defendant and your daughter as your witness. In most places, the officer who issued the ticket will attend and a subpoena is not necessary. If the deputy fails to attend you or your attorney should ask that the case be dismissed. Be...Read more »
I was turning left driving behind a friend and mid turn I was hit by an oncoming car. They claimed they had a yellow light and in the confusion I stated I wasn't sure if the light was a green arrow, or green. I was issued a failure to yield but I believe I had the right of way and my friend... Read more »
A Florida attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. You could contact a traffic ticket defense attorney; many offer free initial consults. The case appears to present challenges, in terms of making a left turn, the reliability of your friend's testimony (as it...Read more »
I was issued a speeding ticket in my neighborhood yesterday. The officer was standing in the middle of the road and looked at my vehicle as I was approaching. I slowed down because there was a person in the road, he quickly starts pointing to the side telling me to pull over and tells me I was... Read more »
I think you just did, though it's unfortunate that someone did this to you and now YOU have to pay for it. Do you have any idea who stole your identity? I assume you reported it to the police. The case would have to be set for a Motion to Quash Warrant on a video remote calendar.
It's always best to have an attorney assist you. Depending on the case, you may be able to get the warrant quashed without surrendering. Your lawyer can assist you with digging up the out-of-county citations and help take care of them for you.
Officer was asking for registration and driver took considerable amount of time, the officer said he'd be back, then came back, didn't ask for it again but the driver had found it and when the officer came back he said they had found the info on the computer. Later on, he went back to his... Read more »
If your vehicle was registered at the time, ask for a court date. If the officer doesn't show, the ticket will be dismissed. If he shows, you can argue that you had the registration available and explain what you stated above to the magistrate. Bring the vehicle registration with you to the hearing.
I hope you mean "traffic tickets". If you haven't paid them, yes, in theory you might be arrested, but the more likely outcome is that you would be denied a Florida driver license. As far as a Florida ID is concerned, I suppose you can get one of those.
I got two tickets for speeding in a school zone and driving without a license. I’m getting my permit next week. The police officer gave me a court date, can I go to court alone In Broward county or at least bring my friend whose 18 without letting my parents know?
Birth certificate for three months now. Even though I've been licensed in FL for 36 yrs because of new laws implemented I have to provide my birth certificate, ss card, etc. I only realized that my license had expired two weeks after the fact when it was brought to my attention by a security...

The car was bought new at Toyota and came with tint from the dealer and is in compliance with Florida law but I guess not Georgia law. My tint is 30 on the front 2 and 15 on the back 3. Is...

If the officer was extremely nice and chose to charge you with a failure to display, then it is a civil infraction. Therefore, no jail involved. It sounds like you were charged with a second degree misdemeanor driving without a valid DL. If that is the case, you face up to maximum 60 days in jail....Read more »
