Florida Toll Violation Q & A
How can I dispute a toll violation?
- The only way to dispute a toll violation is to go court. Toll violations
are handled the same way as a speeding ticket.
How many points is a toll violation?
Should I fight the toll violation?
- Yes. Fighting a toll violation case can save money and reduce your risk
of receiving points on your license. A high percentage of cases are dismissed
if disputed, and most people have legitimate defenses.
What are some possible defenses of a toll violation?
- Many motorists are set up on an automatic debit system, but the charge
can take up to 24 hours to clear. The dashboard transponder may fail to
work properly or its battery may run low. Many other possibilities exist.
What if I am in collections?
- If you are in collections and you have received a toll violation, the firm
can take measures to get you out of collections and start over again.
This can save significant money overall.
Should I just pay the fine?
- No. By paying the fine for a toll violation, you are pleading guilty —
even if you unknowingly violated the toll system. If you challenge the
violation, there is a good chance that you can have fines reduced and
points avoided on your driving record. You may be able to avoid the charge
