Broward County FAQ
When you get a traffic ticket in Broward County, especially a moving violation, you have three options. The first option (the one the government hopes you take) is to just pay the full price of the traffic ticket. This is usually between $250 and $500 and you will get at least 3 (maybe 4 or 5) points on your driving record. Then about two months later your insurance will skyrocket. Also, if you get a few more tickets in the same year, your license will also be suspended. Thus, option one is a terrible option.
Your second option is to pay the ticket and elect traffic driving school. This option is better than the first one, but not by much. You will still pay the full price of the traffic ticket. However, in lieu of points, you get to pay for and attend 4-12 hours of driving school. Note, in Broward County you can only elect driving school one a year and five times in your life. This option is great if you have nothing to do all day (i.e.; don’t work, go to school or have a life) and wants to sit in class with the same people you met on the line when you got your license. You know what I am talking about. Of course, it will still cost you a lot of money in the short run, but it will keep points off your license. Not all traffic tickets permit you to elect driving school, so make sure you check before taking this option.
The third option is to hire a traffic ticket attorney. So you know we are sincere about this, we want you to know that if you do not hire the traffic ticket team, you should hire the ticket clinic or some other traffic ticket law firm as option 1 and 2 above are not good options.

If we don’t you will still get no points and no driving school, but you will pay a court cost.

There are no automatic dismissals. Every Judge and Magistrate in Broward County is different. Each of them also has different standards to dismiss a traffic ticket. Some will dismiss if the statute cited is wrong. Some will dismiss the dates or the defendant’s name is incorrect. Keep in mind, many Judges will permit the officer to amend the traffic ticket if there is a clerical error, others do not. Yes, there should be more consistency, but like most issues in the courtroom, the Judges have great discretion.
For Broward County, this is generally a no. A police officer can only issue a traffic ticket within his or her jurisdiction. There are exceptions, but most often, no.

In Broward County, you only have 10 days to file to get your license back. This is the civil (license part) of your case.
