Habitual Traffic Offenders
Drivers who have a lengthy record of citations or criminal traffic convictions may be deemed a Habitual Traffic Offender (“HTO”) by the DMV. As a result, the DMV revokes the person’s driving privileges for 5 years without any possibility of a hardship license for the first year.
If caught driving while designated as an HTO, the person can be prosecuted for a felony. Many think there are no options other than to continue to drive.
The Jacksonville Lawyers at Harris Guidi Rosner Dunlap, are able to file certain legal actions to set aside and vacate certain portions of one’s driving record that results in the HTO designation being removed. There is hope.
