How is speeding classified in Florida?
Answer: In the state of Florida, speeding is a civil infraction; it’s not criminal. So we’re not dealing with a state attorney, we’re dealing directly with traffic court. Now, if you’re caught 30 over the posted speed limit, that is a mandatory court appearance. That is a super speeding, super fast speeding ticket, but not anywhere near a 50 over, which if you accumulate or get convicted of a second speeding of 50 over you could be facing a criminal charge. The minimum fine amount on a super speeding ticket when it’s 50 over is $1,000, not to mention the possibility of points on your license.
