As of January 1, 2014 the rules for commercial drivers with a ticket have changed in Florida. Withholding adjudication is no longer allowed. If adjudication is withheld DHSMV will send the case back to the clerk for correction. They claim this is to comply with federal law. This makes defending commercial driver tickets more complicated. Many counties routinely withhold adjudication. This avoids points and insurance increase for Florida drivers. Now the citation has to be contested because the only way to avoid the consequences of the ticket is to either beat it or get it amended to something harmless. Attorney Kevin J.
