  • 30 mph over limit

    Was driving in Florida and paced by patrol on a highway. Given a citation that I was going 30 mph over limit. I know I was over 55 mph but I never looked at the speedometer. I know what the difference is between 30 and 25 over limit but the consequences of this citation are clear. My question is what typically happens in Florida in such cases, i.e. do they suspend lisence/prosecute or assess points and fine the driver? Thanks!

    *30 over the limit is a mandatory court appearance*
    4 points and the fine is $250.00 if the judge is in a good mood.


    If it was in a construction zone it could be doubled.
    Also depends if you a habitual offender.

      Mandatory court appearance and a fine up to $500(based on your record), possible driver's license suspension (based on your record) and aggressive driving school (based on your record)

        How did you not realize you were 30mph over the limit? LOL.

        I mean doesn't driving at 85mph+ feel different than driving at 55mph.

          Surprised you didn't get arrested and made to post bond.

          In MO....we could arrest and make one post bond at 20 over.....and it happened all the time. Especially if one was on the interstate and bumped into a Trooper.....

            Just to clarify: of course I knew I was over the limit. I didn't know if it was 30 mph or 20 mph. That range doesn't feel so different and certainly depends on the car you drive.

              We are up and dressed and out the door
              We meet sirens blaring and trucks that roar
              The adrenaline pumping, were ready to go
              Will we make it home? We never know.
