One of the largest ways that traffic tickets can result in penalties is through the point system. In Florida, different violations can mean various amounts of points are placed against your driving record. The amount of points is dependent on the violation and how severe it was. When you receive a ticket for driving over the speed limit up to 15 mph over, it can put 3 points against your record. Tickets for speeding that resulted in an accident can result in 6 points against your record.

While each state has their own way they deal with traffic violations and many even have their own variations of the points system, Florida law regulates that when 12 or more points are placed against your license within 12 months you can begin having your ability to drive restricted. This can include a suspension or revocation of your license. Your insurance will also find out about your points and may choose to increase the cost of your insurance premiums according to the amount of points you have. Traffic ticket penalties may also include high fines, and even the smallest of tickets can cost you a hefty amount. You may need to take traffic school for some types of violations, which is an additional expense as well as time consuming.
