Article by Alex Ramey

Recently, I have been seeing a lot of cases where someone comes in to my office because they have received a letter from the DMV stating that their license is going to be suspended. A problem that I am starting to see a lot of When a driver passes through a toll plaza without paying the proper toll a digital image of the cars license tag is recorded. Under Florida Law, this image can be used by the Authority to issue a Uniform Traffic Citation.

Many people do not realize that they are having problems with their Sun Pass until they get a letter in the mail saying that their license will be suspended. In order to avoid the suspension they go ahead and pay the tickets. They do not realize that by paying the tickets they are pleading guilty to a moving violation that carries three points, and that by accumulating too many points their license will be suspended.

Do not pay those tickets! They are considered moving violations. For each ticket that you pay you will receive 3 points your license. As a result your driver's license could be suspended.

The applicable Florida Statute that covers toll violations is Chapter 316.1001:

Payment of toll on toll facilities required; penalties.--

A person may not use any toll facility without payment of tolls, except as provided in s. 338.155. Failure to pay a prescribed toll is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation under chapter 318.

Effective, July 1, 2007 toll violations fines will be increase to $176.50 plus the unpaid toll fee.
