This does not apply to criminal traffic infractions. Florida statute 318.14(2) can be used in defending traffic infractions with a mandatory appearance. 318.14(2) states that “Except as provided in ss. 316.1001(2) and 316.0083, any person cited for a violation requiring a mandatory hearing listed in s. 318.19 or any other criminal traffic violation listed in chapter 316 must sign and accept a citation indicating a promise to appear. The officer may indicate on the traffic citation the time and location of the scheduled hearing and must indicate the applicable civil penalty established in s. 318.18. For all other infractions under this section, except for infractions under s. 316.1001, the officer must certify by electronic, electronic facsimile, or written signature that the citation was delivered to the person cited. This certification is prima facie evidence that the person cited was served with the citation.” If you are accused of a traffic infraction contact Daytona Beach DUI attorney Kevin J.
