Different types of Miami traffic tickets are issued daily. One of the most common, especially in Miami, is for violating speeding laws.
Let’s review the different types of Speeding Tickets and how the Attorneys of The Traffic Ticket Office will help with your defense.
In Florida, Speeding tickets are broken down into 4 different categories:
SPEED OF 15 MPH OR LESS OVER THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT
An adjudication (guilty finding) or paying a traffic ticket, without a traffic school election, for speeds 15 MPH or less over the limit, carry a fine, usually listed on the back of the ticket or in a separate hand out, and three (3) points on your driving record. In Miami-Dade Countythat fine is $219.00. In addition, an adjudication usually will mean higher insurance premiums.
Your options are to pay the ticket and get the points. You may also elect traffic school if you are eligible. Or, hire our experts to fight your speeding ticket in Court for $69.00. With our NO POINTS MONEY BACK guarantee for Non-Mandatory cases discussed further in this article, what do you have to lose?
SPEED OVER 15MPH OVER BUT LESS THAN 30 MPH OVER THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT
A speeding ticket in this category will carry a much higher fine. You may pay the ticket and get the points or pay the fine and elect traffic school (if eligible) to avoid the points. Or fight your ticket. With the help of the Traffic Ticket Office, our speeding traffic ticket Attorneys will help you from getting points or a high fine.
SPEED OF 30MPH OR MORE OVER THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT
This speeding ticket requires a mandatory appearance in Court. You may not pay the fine without appearing before a Hearing Magistrate. If guilty, you will pay a much higher fine (up to $500.00), four (4) points on your driving record, additional traffic school and face a possible suspension of your driver’s license.
SPEED OF 50 MPH OR MORE OVER THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT
This is the most serious category of speeding tickets.

For a second offense, the fine increase up to $2500.00 and a one (1) year revocation of your driver’s license. For a third offense here, you will be charged criminally with a third degree felony.
