Florida’s Habitual Traffic Offender Designation: Criminal Traffic Pleas Without Consulting With An Attorney Can Come Back to Haunt You

August 25, 2010

The Florida Statute Section 322.64 designates Habitual Traffic Offenders as persons with specified convictions within a 5 year period. Convictions for such offenses as involuntary manslaughter, DUI, Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License, Leaving the Scene of an Accident resulting in Death or Personal Injury, or any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used will result in the designation as a Habitual Traffic Offender. Once the convictions occur, the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles will send you a notice that your license is suspended for 5 years.

People frequently get a civil citation for Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License Without Knowledge. They then simply just pay the ticket without realizing that it is considered a conviction under the statute designating someone as a Habitual Traffic Offender. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney before entering any type of plea or disposition to any criminal traffic offenses or civil infractions involving the suspension or revocation of your license. How your case is resolved can have a significant impact on whether you are designated as a Habitual Traffic Offender.

If you have resolved your case without the assistance of an attorney and you have received your notice of suspension from the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles; you may still have legal remedies available to you.
