You may be asking yourself, “what do you mean I don’t have to be in a car to get a moving violation”. That is right, you can commit a moving violation while not in a car. For instance, you can get a moving violation while driving a bicycle.
Florida Statute 316.151(1)(c) describes how you must make a left turn on a bicycle. In short, you must obey the traffic control device and stay as far to the right of the lane by the curb as you can. But, if you don’t you can get a ticket for this which is punished as a moving violation.
Do officers ever give out such a ticket? Well, the simple answer is yes. I know this because one of my clients is charged with just such a violation.
So, as you can see, you can get a moving violation on a bike and if you do get this or any other moving violation you should call a qualified traffic ticket attorney. You can find my firm on the web at www.dontpaythatticket.com or call us at 561-989-9999.
