Should I just pay the ticket?
When you pay a traffic ticket in the State of Florida, the State of Florida considers that to be a guilty plea. In many instances, the State of Florida will assess points against your driver´s license. This is a big deal!
Points assessed against your driver´s license can affect insurance premiums and the accumulation of too many points within a specific time period can result in the suspension of your driver´s license.
Moreover, points assessed against your driver´s license could cause insurance premiums to go up. A suspended driver´s license can make things a whole lot worse very quickly. Knowingly driving with a suspended license is a second degree misdemeanor in Florida, punishable by up to sixty (60) days in jail.
A second conviction for driving with a suspended license in Florida could be treated as a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one (1) year in jail.
Three convictions for driving on a suspended license could result in you being designated a Habitual Traffic Offender where any subsequent driving on a suspended license charge could be treated as felony, punishable by up to five (5) years in prison. click here
