What To Do If Your Driver’s License Is At Risk?
The state of Florida maintains a point system for traffic violations. If you accrue too many points, you will have your license suspended. However, getting points requires a conviction, and skilled representation can go a long way to preserving your license.
At Rashad Green Firm, P.A., attorney Rashad Green has represented clients from all around Tallahassee and Tampa in various criminal matters. While traffic violations are considered minor, enough traffic violations can place your livelihood in significant jeopardy.
Understanding The Point System
With each conviction for a traffic violation, you will receive a certain number of points on your license. Some actions, such as leaving the scene of a crash, are “worth” 6 points, while others, such as running a red light, are worth 3 points.
However, getting a few points on your license is not necessarily a problem. The trouble begins when you’ve received a significant number of points in a short time frame. Your license may be suspended for:
- 30 days, if you’ve accumulated 12 points in 12 months
- Three months, if you’ve accumulated 18 points in 18 months
- One year, if you’ve accumulated 24 points in 3 years
However, you must remember that you have significant legal rights even in a traffic violation. Attorney Rashad Green is an aggressive defender of your rights. He promises each client the full benefit of his legal skills and constant, consistent communication.
