Q:     Can a police officer give me a ticket from driving behind me and clock me while driving?  This police officer clocked me at 68 while the officer was parked and followed me, and when the police officer pulled me over, the officer said I was getting another ticket from driving behind me and clocking me at 74. Also, if anyone knows what are my options here, can they please let me know what I can do? I have a total of $663 on these tickets.





A:     Chosen as “Best Answer” by Asker on www.AVVO.com


Answered You should hire a lawyer.

If the cop admits to what you proffered then one is gone for sure, and quite possibly both.

That said, as to both tickets you enjoy the same 3 options that anyone cited in Florida for a non-mandatory court appearance traffic citation enjoys: A) Pay it (in which case you will get points assessed on your driver license); B) Elect driving school (in which case points will NOT be assessed, but you can only do this 5 times in your life and cannot do it 2 times within any 12 month period); or C) Set it for Court and challenge it. In all 3 events you face fines and court costs on top of what I have outlined, and, regardless of which you choose, in all 3 cases you must make an election within 30 days of issuance of the citation.

In my opinion, the best defense for any traffic citation anywhere is to hire a local traffic ticket lawyer. I can’t speak to the Leigh Acres area per se but in Miami, Fl, where I have been a practicing criminal defense lawyer for nearly a quarter of a century, there are many skilled and experienced traffic lawyers who know the law, the procedure, the Judge and probably the cop. In short you will almost certainly get both competent representation and a better result for a relatively small fee / investment.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
