Understanding the Difference

In Florida, civil traffic infractions and criminal traffic violations are separate and carry different consequences. Civil infractions result in you having to pay a fine. The infraction becomes a part of your driving record, can result in points on your driving license, and can even affect your auto insurance rates. Examples of civil traffic violations include, but are not limited to:

  • Speeding citation
  • Running a red light
  • Careless Driving
  • Driving While License Suspended or Revoked (DWLSR)

Criminal traffic violations, however, are classified as either a felony or a misdemeanor and carry the possibility of jail time or prison. Examples of these types of violations include the following:

  • DUI
  • Reckless Driving
  • Second Refusal to Submit to Testing
  • Fleeing or Eluding an Officer
  • Leaving the Scene of a Crash
  • Racing on a Highway
  • Driving with No Valid Driver’s License
  • Driving While License Suspended or Revoked (DWLSR)
  • Hit and Run

Common defenses to criminal traffic violations include contesting the legality of the stop, moving to exclude statements because the officer failed to read the Miranda warnings, moving to suppress evidence seized illegally, and/or showing the arresting officer did not have probable cause to make the arrest.
