Traffic Ticket Penalties

In Florida, traffic tickets are handled on a county level, and for the most part, fees do not vary much between counties. Generally, traffic ticket fines are listed on the ticket itself. Each county adds a surcharge or court-related fee to each ticket fine. Traffic offenses involving a DUI will also have an additional fine attached to the fine for the underlying traffic offense. If you receive a ticket, sometimes your auto insurance rates will increase. However, you can avoid this by completing a segment of traffic school.
