Florida Traffic Violations and How They Add Points to Your License

Traffic violations could result in the points on your driver license. If too many are accumulated, it could lead to a suspension of your license.

In Florida, 12 points over a period of 12 months could lead to a 30-day suspension, while 18 points over an 18-month period could lead to a three-month suspension.

According to Lawyer in Savannah Georgia, you may be facing a one-year suspension if you acquire 24 points over a period of three years.

Types of Traffic Violation Points

The following are some of the traffic violation points that may be issued in Florida: 

  • violation of child restraint – 3;
  • 15 mph or less over posted speed limit – 3;
  • 16 mph or more over posted speed limit – 4;
  • moving violation that causes an accident – 4;
  • reckless driving – 4;
  • speeding that results in an accident – 6; and
  • leaving scene of an accident with property damage more than $50 – 6.

The loss of driving privileges can have a significant impact on daily living. Then if you are caught driving without a license, there could be additional consequences.
