Speeding in a Construction Zone

Construction Zone Speeding Ticket in South Florida

If you received a speeding ticket for speeding in a construction zone then contact us. Our traffic ticket attorneys represent clients throughout Palm Beach County including courtrooms at the Main Courthouse in West Palm Beach, the South County Courthouse in Delray Beach, the North County Courthouse in Palm Beach Gardens and the West County Courthouse in Belle Glade, Florida.

A person who receives a traffic citation for exceeding the speed limit in a posted construction zone is exposed to a maximum fine that is double the amount specified by statute. The statute requires that the posting must include notification of the speed limit and that fines are doubled for speeding.

The fine will be doubled for construction zone violations only if construction workers or personnel are actually present or operating equipment on the roadway or immediately adjacent to the road under construction. See Fla. Stat. Ann. § 318.18(3)(d),
If you pay the fine then you are admitting guilt and will be adjudicated guilty of the speeding ticket. Points will be accessed to your driver's license. The fines for speeding tickets vary depending on the miles over the limit alleged on the citation and whether the violation occurred in a construction zone with worker's present or a school zone.

Client Testimonials
  • ...A long weekend vacation in Palm Beach resulted in the potential for serious consequences that could have set me back in unimaginative ways. M+B was a truly incredible legal advocate and was always accessible within minutes to answer questions and discuss the progress of the case within the system - truly remarkable. I could not have retained better legal representation in my case in Palm Beach County.

  • I just had to commend you on the outstanding job you did on behalf of your client in court yesterday. If my clients were ever to ask me if I know of a good DUI defense attorney, I know to whom I can refer them!

  • I was facing hard prison time and punishment. [Larry] did everything to pull strings and get me into rehab. After meeting with many therapists I finally got one to diagnose me successfully with Bipolar. Thanks to Larry I have been sober since 6/19/09. My health is great and my family life is amazing. It's because he saw something in me and my family that I wasn't just an alcoholic there was something that told me it was something else.

  • I was charged with a felony and facing the scary thought of losing my job, but thank you Attorney Steven Bell for helping me. Now I’m able to keep my job and take care of my family. I am truly amazed by your service, and you for understanding what I have to deal with. To me I’m very impressed by way you handled my case and was here to listen and make things OK!

  • Mr. Steven Bell, Words cant explain how thankful I am for you and your firm. I was facing felony charges and even looking at doing 5 years in jail! Not only did you fight for me, you got my case dismissed and dropped. For that, I don't have words to say “thank you” you were always kind and believed in me. You looked for every opportunity and you won! Thank you for being my guardian angel in disguise and steering me in the right direction. You are forever my “too go guy” thank you soooo much!
