Florida Careless Driving Attorneys
Fighting Carless Driving Tickets
Most of the time, careless driving tickets are issued after a car accident. This is a non-criminal offense. While many people think that this and reckless driving are the same, these are two separate charges. When someone is accused of being a careless driver, the state believes that they did not know that they were operating their vehicle improperly.
If you were issued a careless driving ticket, consult with The Berman Law Group. We may be able to fight the ticket for you.

Penalties for Careless Driving
Remember: Careless driving is not a criminal charge. That means that you cannot go to jail due to careless driving alone. There are, however, immediate consequences for this charge. Points are assessed onto your license and you will be fined. On top of that, your insurance rates will almost certainly go up. Over time, the costs will accumulate and may become exorbitant.
How to Beat a Careless Driving Ticket
A police officer is the only one with the authority to issue a traffic accident. In most cases, the police officer that gives you the ticket did not witness the accident. This means that the officer cannot testify against you regarding how the crash occurred.
This is advantageous for you. Law enforcement knows how to testify in a court of law because it is their job. When you remove an officer’s testimony, you are greatly aiding yourself. Judges accept a police officer’s testimony without question. If you can eliminate this, you are going against another person.
This person may or may not know how to properly answer questions. The state may build a case against them without them even knowing it. A lawyer can testify for you, so you do not accidentally make a case that is against your interests.
A competent Florida careless driving defense lawyer will be able to pick apart the testimony of the other witness. Many people do not fully understand what words legally mean. Your attorney should be able to deconstruct the case of any witness whose testimony is going against you.
