Child Restraint Violations
In Need of a Miami Traffic Ticket Attorney?
At the Law Offices of Daniel Schulefand, we understand that few things
can be as damaging to your well-being and freedoms than having your driver's
license revoked. We have devoted our law firm to protecting the people
of Miami from harsh penalties surrounding traffic laws, including child
restraint violations. Although this violation adds three points to your
license, it can actually be paired with criminal violations if it is concluded
that the child was put in significant danger due to your actions.

Understanding Child Restraint Requirements in Florida
Just because you were ticketed for a child restraint violation does not
mean that your child was actually insecure in your car. It is possible
that the highway patrol officer did not know how your seat belts or child
seat operated. In other cases, the child actually moved around after the
car was pulled over and came to a complete stop.
Regulations surrounding child restraints require:
- Any child three or younger to be secured in a federally approved child seat
- Children four to five in a child seat or secured by a seat belt
- Small children in the backseat, regardless of age
Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that your child is buckled
up and secure whenever they are inside the car. Depending on the age your
child, you could be ticketed even if your child was unbuckled while the
car was not in motion.
Your First Choice for Reliable Representation
A typical child restraint violation will cost you $60 and you might be
tempted to just pay that money without a second thought. We encourage
you to first consult with our Miami traffic lawyer before you submit any
payment and admit guilt. Even though the fine may not seem particularly
strict, you need to remember that it will put at least three points onto
your license, and that too many points results in an automatic suspension.
For more than 20 years, Attorney Daniel Schulefand has represented clients
in traffic violation cases of all sorts, including those that were considered
criminal offenses. Begin protecting your rights and the stability of your
