What is a Traffic Crime in Florida?

When it comes to traffic crimes in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we’re referring to actual traffic crimes, not just traffic infractions (but we can represent traffic infractions, too!). 


Traffic Crimes include things like DUIs, driving with a suspended license or being involved on a  hit and run or even vehicular homicide. 



  • Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License: When someone drives on a Florida Highway with knowledge that their license is suspended, canceled, or revoked.

  • Hit & Run / Leaving the Scene of an Accident: Involves a person’s unlawful exit from the scene of a car crash.  

  • Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding: General Fleeing and Eluding occurs when a driver has been lawfully ordered to stop their vehicle by a law enforcement officer, and the defendant knowingly refuses to stop, or has stopped and willfully fled in an attempt to elude police.

  • No valid Driver’s License: A criminal charge in Florida for operating a car on a public highway without a Driver’s License. 

  • Racing on Highways: When someone competitively drives a vehicle in a speed or acceleration contest, or engages in drag racing, or participates as a passenger or race facilitator.

  • Reckless Driving: Operating a car in a manner demonstrating a willful disregard for safety.



Traffic Crimes penalties and consequences vary greatly in Florida. For reckless driving, as an example, the criminal charges can either be a misdemeanor or a felony and can result in up to 5 years in prison, 5 years on probation and up to $5,000 in fines.
