When you get a traffic ticket in Miami-Dade 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 Miami-Dade 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.
