In Florida, traffic offenses can be broken into two main categories: Civil Traffic Infractions and Criminal Traffic Offenses. A Civil Traffic Infraction is a less serious violation of traffic rules and is therefore treated as a non-criminal violation. Therefore, there is no possibility of serving jail or prison time due for committing such violation.Civil Traffic Infractions including speeding or running a red light.
However, if you are charged with a Criminal Traffic Infraction, you could be imprisoned for the traffic violation. The most common examples of Criminal Traffic Infractions are: driving with license suspended charges or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI). Guilt or innocence, as well as the severity of the sentence if convicted, will be based upon the specific facts and evidence of your case.
