The best way to prevent a speeding ticket in Florida is to obey the traffic laws. As long as you drive within the speed limit, and maintain a safe and legal speed, then there will be no opportunity for a police officer to charge you with a speeding violation.
In Florida, it is perfectly legal for most drivers to use a radar detector in their vehicle. The only drivers who cannot use a radar detector are those who operate commercial vehicles that weigh over 10,000 pounds. If you do choose to speed, a radar detector will not always prevent a speeding ticket. These devices are never 100% effective in detecting radar signals. Furthermore, if a radar signal is detected, you may not have enough time to slow your vehicle to within the speed limit.
Radar jammers are illegal in Florida, as are any devices that will interfere with a police officer’s radar signal. If you choose to use a radar jammer, or any similar device and you are caught, you may be charged with a crime which will result in more serious consequences than a simple speeding violation.
