Summary of “Court Appearances”
Attorney David Haenel speaks about infractions that may or may not require you to appear in court.
Under Florida Traffic Court Rules, when you receive a Civil Infraction, speeding ticket, careless driving, improper change of lane, typically those do not require a mandatory court appearance. Florida Traffic Court Rules allow us to go to Court for you in an attempt to either beat the citation, or keep the points off. The exception would be when you have a mandatory Court appearance in a situation where you received a speeding ticket for going thirty over, or where you received a ticket for uncovered load, or where you received a ticket for careless driving and it involves a traffic accident where there’s an allegation of serious bodily injury or when there’s a fatality involved. Those are what is referred to as mandatory infractions.
