Running a Red Light and Running a Stop Sign Florida Lawyer

Running red lights and running stop signs are a civil infraction within Florida.  Civil infractions are essentially below the level of criminal in terms of offense to the state, and is governed by section 316.074, Florida Statutes.

Running a red light is four (4) points on a drivers license while running a stop sign is only three (3) points.  If you were to cut through a parking lot to avoid a red light, as would be quite common in Jacksonville, you could be found guilty of 316.074(2), and also get 3 points on your license.

If you received one of these tickets in Florida, give Graham a call at 904-383-7448

A Modicum of Success for Simone Solomon

The NTSB has ruled on the case of Simone Solomon.  She has prevailed on her appeal and the decision is being remanded.

Bad science has no place in law.  Bad science has no place in opinions.  Finally, someone has pointed out where the problems lie.  The US Coast Guard has problems with science.  So, DOT drug tests and USCG drug tests are completely valid, but their experts opinions are not.

Now I did a trial with the US Coast Guard on this issue.  I don't want to sound paranoid, but I believe that over lunch they stole my only paper copy of my closing statement.  It's true that I believe it, but I'm still not certain what happened to my closing statement that day.  I packed it up in my materials and after lunch when I made my closing statement- it was gone.  Even though I didn't need it, I spent a few hours looking through the materials that I had with me at trial.  The closing statement was not there.  After the trial concluded, I spent a few hours looking through all…
