I have a 13 year clean driving record. This is my first ticket. I know I was not speeding and what to contest this in court. My ticket is for $75 for driving: "unlawful speed at 27 mph in a posted 15 mph zone. The offense charged is F.S.S 316.187. I want to know if I will get points on my license and what does this F.S.S. 316.187 code mean? The officer said he clocked me on a radar. Where can I found that information on the ticket? Also, will I have a chance getting this ticket dismissed in court? Thanks!
316.187 is the statute you are accused of violating. In this case, speeding. You could get points on your license....
My husband got a DUI and his license was revoked for 180 days. As part of the terms of license reinstatement, he "may" be required to have an ignition interlock device installed "upon all vehicles that he individually or jointly leases or owns" (Florida Statute 322.2715). However, we have only one vehicle in our household and it is owned and registered solely in my name. Surely I don't need one installed in MY vehicle? And since he doesn't own a vehicle, how will this condition of his license reinstatement be met? THANK YOU!
In order to get his license back your husband will have to demonstrate that he either has had an ignition interlock...
This is my first arrest. I'm 34 married and was out with some friends. Originally the officer said he pulled me over because I was speeding but then smelled alcohol on me. I did the field soberity test and that's when they arrested me. At the police station I refused to take the breathalyzer test so they took my license. Since then I have signed up for DUI school and received me hardship license. I'm worried about having a DUI though and would like to only get wreckless driving if possible. On a scale of 1 - 10 what are my chances.
it is not that easy. no one can answer your question without a great deal more information. over the years thousands...
Got a DUI and am going through the process of getting documentation from the state. I noticed that in my police narrative, the arresting officer put the name of someone else. i.e. Same first and last name, however, different middle name, DOB, and address. Would this be an important thing to look at when approaching my case? Both at the DMV and in the criminal proceedings?
Any mistake by the officer is potentially significant, but I don't think this will result in a complete dismissal. It'...
I was arrested for DUI, received a deferred prosecution and pled to reckless driving. Adjudication was withheld. My driving record still shows the DUI not Reckless Driving. Is this the usual procedure?
A review of the DHSMV transcript would give me the answer. What you might be seeing is the administrative suspension...
Now this year was charged with dui. Was going to file an appeal the case due to not having a fair trial. Since he was not given oppotunity to have witness present to prove he wasn't driving. He was not even in vehicle when an officer wanted to arrest him. Had no video nor anything as evidence. Now the jury found him guilty just by police testimony. Now convicted ey are saying interlock and dui class 2nd level and has to get fr-44 hardship etc. Why is the dmv taking it as 2nd charge if other one is nolle prossed
Because the DVM is separate from the court and doesn't really care about the outcome in court. They probably suspended...
