Alachua County/Gainesville traffic citation lawyer Ian Nesbeth’s main focus is winning the case. However, we know that avoiding points on a client’s driving record is of paramount importance. Florida uses a point system. Accumulating too many points can not only cause your insurance rates to increase, it can also result in your driver’s license being suspended.


Florida's Point System:


6 Points


  • Unlawful speed resulting in a crash
  • Leaving the scene of a crash with more than $50 in property damage


4 Points


  • Passing a stopped school bus
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding - more than 15 mph over the posted or lawful speed
  • Any moving violation (except speeding) resulting in a crash


3 Points


  • Speeding - not more than 15 mph over the posted or lawful speed
  • All other moving violations
  • Violation of a Child Restraint §316.613


In addition to the above, the accumulation of points can result in a suspension of your Florida driver's license as follows:


  • 12 points within 12 months – 30 day suspension
  • 18 points within 18 months – 3 month suspension
  • 24 points within 36 months – 1 year suspension

Other Florida Law enhancements:


  • Fines are doubled if the infraction occurs in a school or construction zone, up to $1000.


In addition to an accumulation of points, your driver's license can be suspended or revoked for the following:


  • Failure to pay traffic tickets
  • Failure to appear in court
  • Failure to pay child support
  • If you are a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO)
  • Conviction for certain theft offenses
  • Conviction for certain drug offenses
  • Conviction for certain prostitution offenses
  • DUI convictions or DUI refusals


Options after paying a traffic ticket:


The vast majority of people pay for Alachua County/Gainesville traffic citations after receiving it, not knowing the harsh consequences that can result. If you recently paid a Gainesville/Alachua County traffic ticket you may still be able to avoid the points on your license. If you paid the fine for an Alachua County/Gainesville traffic ticket or citation in the last 60 days and you did not know at the time of the payment that paying the fine would lead to a conviction and assessment of points for the traffic infraction you may still be able to avoid the points. You should immediately contact Alachua County/Gainesville’s experienced traffic ticket attorney Ian Nesbeth to discuss the possibility of setting aside the conviction. But, you must act within 60 days from the date you paid the fine on the traffic ticket. Remember, it doesn’t cost anything to ask Alachua County/Gainesville traffic lawyer Ian Nesbeth for a consultation, It’s Free.
