An offense of careless driving may sound like a common occurrence. However, this charge includes a steep fine and will add points to your driving record that can cause complications in the future. You don't have to simply accept the ticket and its fees. If you received a careless driving ticket in Broward County, then contact an experienced traffic ticket attorney at Meltzer and Bell, P.A.

The maximum fine for careless driving is $500 plus court costs if you are adjudicated guilty. In Broward County, the average fine is just over $160.00 for a person who simply pays the ticket. The main problem with paying the ticket is that you are entering a guilty plea, and you will be convicted or adjudicated guilty of the offense and points are accessed.
Additionally, you are essentially admitting guilt which can be detrimental should the other party decide to sue your or attempt to claim injuries and/or assert your liability from the accident in a separate civil lawsuit.
A conviction for careless driving has long lasting consequences that could lead to a spike in your insurance rates for years to come. At Meltzer and Bell, P.A., our experienced traffic ticket attorneys offer a money back guarantee — no points, no school or your money back. Some restrictions apply, and court costs and fees may apply, in addition to the attorney fee.
