Habitual Traffic Offender/HTO

If you have been arrested as a Habitual Traffic Offender and charged with an "HTO," be advised that this is a third degree felony. Any third degree felony is punishable by up to 5 years in state prison. In Florida, the Department of Motor Vehicles can designate a driver as Habitual Traffic Offender.

Once a driver is designated as an Habitual Traffic Offender, the drivers license is suspended for 5 years. Many times, an individual will be classified as a Habitual Traffic Offender without realizing that their license has been suspended. For example, a driver can become a Habitual Traffic Offender simply for paying a civil traffic fine or driving on a suspended license without knowledege.

As a former Miami prosecutor, I can assist those who have been designated as Habitual Traffic Offenders in various ways. For example, I may be able to vacate a prior guilty disposition that may have contributed to the HTO status. For a free consulatation, please contact criminal defense attorney Michael Mirer.
