Citations for Unlawfully Speeding

As stated in Florida Statutes 316.183, no person shall drive on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent while having regard to the actual and potential hazards affecting driving conditions. In addition, drivers are to properly slow down when entering areas such as an intersection, a winding curve, hill crest, or narrow roadway. Drivers believed to be traveling too fast when approaching such areas may be subject to traffic violations.

Penalties for Speeding in Boca Raton

The penalties for a speeding infraction vary depending on how fast the accused person was going over the speed limit. According to Florida Statute 318.18, the following fines may be issued, court costs are additional:

  •  1-5 mph – Warning
  • 6-9 mph – $25
  • 10-14 mph – $100
  • 15-19 mph – $150
  • 20-29 mph – $175
  • 30 mph and above – $250

If you were handed a second ticket for exceeding the speed limit by 30 mph within 12 months, your fine may be doubled. In addition, if the offense was committed in a school or construction zone, the fine would also double. In areas marked as an “enhanced penalty zone”, the fine may increase by $50.
