Fort Myers Habitual Traffic Offender Attorneys
Criminal Defense Lawyers Fighting HTO Charges in Lee County, Florida
Being classified as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) will leave you in a serious situation. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) has the authority to suspend your driver’s license for 5 years, leaving you to rely upon public transportation, friends and family to get to and from work, school and even to run household errands. This suspension typically occurs after a driver acquires three major traffic violations within a 5 year time period. Driving on a suspended license is one such violation.
Fortunately, an attorney can help. An attorney can work to have your driver’s license reinstated as soon as possible. If you have received a notice that the DHSMV is going to suspend your license in conjunction with a Habitual Traffic Offender classification, it may also be possible for an attorney to help you avoid suspension in the first place.

Attorneys for Fort Myers Traffic Offenses
Many drivers find that they are labeled Habitual Traffic Offenders because they pay serious traffic citations rather than challenge them. Paying a citation actually means that you are admitting guilt and will result in points assessed on your driving record. Accumulate enough points and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) can suspend your license on the basis of you being a Habitual Traffic Offender.
If you received a notice in the mail from the DHSMV informing you that your license will be suspended, it is important that you act quickly and consult a lawyer. Depending upon the particular situation, it may be possible for a lawyer to ensure that your license is not suspended at all.
