In Orlando, weather conditions can change in the blink-of-an-eye. The tropical weather in Orlando is perfect for a daily rain shower, and many of those showers quickly turn into large storms. When the weather turns bad, driving conditions become hazardous. Florida law requires you to turn your headlights on and reduce your speed during these weather conditions.

Currently, under the state law, a speeding fine can result in a ticket that is valued at $25-250 per offense. If the ticketing officer finds that the speeding offense occurred in a construction or school zone, these fines can be increased up to $1000 per offense.

When you have points placed upon your license, you can guarantee that your insurance rates will increase. Depending on any previous violations you may already have against your license, you may even be dropped from your policy. Finding a new policy will be very expensive, and this expense will continue for many years.
