How Florida deals with out of state revocation of privilege if it is not for DUI or DWI but for 3 speeds in 18 months?
Accordingly to Florida law there is no such thing like revocation for 3 speeding tickets in 18 months period. In my case this will be equal to 12 points in case I loose at all 3 hearings. To my understanding, by Florida law they should simply suspend my license for 30 days because of accumulation of 12 points in one year. Or it doesn’t matter? If your privilege becomes revoked somewhere, they do not care by what reason and revoke your license too? Does anybody know?
Your best bet is to repost under the Florida forum For an attorneys opinion or call the Florida DMV or visit the...

My case is not on webcrims anymore, how come?
I was charged with a DWI in Brooklyn, NY in August of 2014. It has been rescheduled by an attorney a few times but I would always see the new date on webcrims. I checked recently and the case is no longer there. I tried searching the docket number and my name and it returns 0 results. What can this mean? Could it have been dismissed?
