School is Back in Session – Drive Safely!

School is back in session this week in Florida, which means that you will start to see the flashing yellows again when you drive through school zones.  The minimum ticket for speeding in a school zone is around $150, depending on where you drive, but it can increase sharply depending on how fast you are going so remember to slow down when you see the flashing lights.

Also, remember to stop for school buses!  If a school bus is stopped with its flashing stop signs on, you are required to stop if you are going in either direction, The only exception is that you do not have to stop for school buses that are facing the opposite direction if there is a physical barrier, such as a wall or an unpaved median, between you and the oncoming traffic.

Drive safely and if you do find yourself ticketed, consider speaking to an experienced traffic ticket attorney.  At The Ticket Clinic, we have handled over 1 million traffic-related offenses!  Call us at 1.800.CITATION.

Speeding in a School Zone or a Construction Zone – What You Should Know

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Citations for speeding in a school zone or a construction zone come with doubled fines and points on your drivers license.  If you receive a citation for speeding in a school or construction zone, it is important to be sure that the zones are properly marked.  For a school zone, Florida law requires that there be permanent signage indicating the school zone and the times that the speed restrictions are in effect.  In a construction zone, you can only receive a traffic citation if workers are in fact present at the time.  Before you run to the courthouse and pay these costly speeding tickets and put points on your driving records (remember, points cannot be erased!) talk to a lawyer at The Ticket Clinic. The lawyers at the Ticket Clinic have defended over 1 million traffic tickets in Florida, California and nationwide.  We concentrate solely on traffic-related offenses, including DUI.
