New initiative will teach Florida residents about the intricacies of an especially punitive law, help keep them from suffering its penalties, Dale Carson Law reports
Jacksonville, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2015 -- Dale Carson Law, a top criminal, DUI, and traffic violation legal defense firm, announced the start of a new campaign aimed at informing Florida residents about the state's Habitual Traffic Offender law. Incorporating a variety of online outreach efforts and media availability options, the new campaign will help those potentially or actually affected by the statute understand the relevant issues and their options. Founded by former FBI Special Agent and Miami-Dade County police officer Dale Carson, Dale Carson Law is one of the state's most successful and active criminal, DUI, and traffic defense advocates.
"While well-intentioned, Florida's Habitual Traffic Offender statute is overly complicated and difficult to understand," Dale Carson Law founder Dale Carson stated, "That means that too many people are regularly getting caught up in its provisions and losing their driving privileges. Our new educational campaign is meant to help cut down on this senseless collateral damage."
Florida's Habitual Traffic Offender law is one of the severest of its kind in the country. Under the statute, according to the state's Division of Motor Vehicles, over 20,000 residents lose their driving licenses annually. While some of these incidents target drivers with a number of severe, public-safety-endangering convictions on their records, many more strike those with only relatively minor traffic violations.
Worse, falling afoul of the statute can come as a complete surprise to some drivers. As pointed out in an editorial post at http://www.dalecarsonlaw.com/ that kicks off Dale Carson Law's new Habitual Traffic Offender education campaign, many of those who lose their licenses to the statute do so after settling up for a handful of minor traffic violations. As the penalties under the statute are so severe, up to and including a loss of driving privileges for five years, this can be a life-altering event for those who are affected in this way.
The new Dale Carson Law initiative is meant to help the state's drivers better understand the Habitual Traffic Offender Law, its implications, and how they can avoid being penalized under it. A variety of helpful resources at http://www.dalecarsonlaw.com/dui-lawyer-jacksonville-fl/ go into the details of the statute, as well as illuminate ways that those who have already been penalized under the law can seek relief.
In addition to providing highly effective counsel and representation for traffic and DUI cases, Dale Carson Law is also one of Florida's most prominent criminal defense firms. A number of articles linked from http://www.dalecarsonlaw.com/jacksonville-criminal-defense-attorney/ detail the firm's extensive credentials and capabilities of this sort, with most of Dale Carson Law's attorneys benefiting from extensive experience in law enforcement or years spent on the other side of the legal aisle.
