Speeding 50 MPH Over
If you receive a speeding ticket for driving fifty (50) miles over the speed limit, then you need an experienced traffic ticket attorney to represent you in court. You cannot simply pay the ticket because the infraction requires a mandatory hearing in front of a county court judge.
If you were cited for a speeding ticket for going 50 mph over the limit, the infraction is a noncriminal offense, but it comes with especially harsh penalties. First, if you are convicted, you will receive four (4) points on your driver's license. If you fail to appear in court, the court can issue a D6 to suspend your driver's license.
Our Florida traffic court attorneys represent clients charges under Section 316.1926(2), FS, which applies to a person who exceeds the speed limit in excess of 50 mph for more in violation of one of the following infractions:
- FS 316.183(2) (posted speeds);
- FS 316.187 (state speed zones); or
- FS 316.189 (municipal and county speeds).
