Orlando Careless Driving Ticket Lawyer

Pulled Over By Police Officer

What can you expect from a Careless driving charge?

If you have been charged with Careless driving in Orlando or anywhere in Orange County, you can face a fine of up to $160.00 to $500.00. Upon a conviction, it can also result in four points on your driver’s license and a permanent negative driving record. In rare cases you can even face a suspension of your driving privilege.

What exactly is Careless driving?

The Florida statute defines two types of careless driving offenses.

“Careless driving” is defined as: “Any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways within the state shall drive the same in a careful and prudent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person”
§ 316.1925, Fla. Stat. (2013).

“Aggressive careless driving” means committing two or more of the following acts simultaneously or in succession:(1) Exceeding the posted speed(2) Unsafely or improperly changing lanes(3) Following another vehicle too closely.
§ 316.1923, Fla. Stat. (2013).

Both offenses are non criminal, so there will not be any jail time for the offender, unless other illegal criminal acts, like a DUI were committed when the violation took place. But, you can still end up with hefty fines, a negative driving record, an increase in your insurance rates, and court costs.
