Florida Traffic Ticket fines are scheduled to increase on February 1, 2009. In an effort to generate revenue for the State of Florida, Legislators have increased numerous Florida traffic ticket penalties and expect to raise $16 million in 2009.
Fines on speeding tickets are scheduled to increase $10.00 – $35.00 depending on the alleged speed. Fine on other traffic tickets for moving violations are also scheduled to increase.
