With the glorification of street racing in Hollywood films and the growth of late night illegal street races, the Florida Legislature made it their mission to enhance the penalties for those caught engaging in races on the highway. While late night street racing still occurs on local causeways and industrial back streets, this is a serious crime that can have lasting effects on your life.

If you have been a Tampa Ticket for Racing on Highway, otherwise known as street racing, this serious charge carries the potential for jail time, a significant fine, 30 day vehicle impoundment, and a one year license revocation (first offense, up to four year revocation for third violation). Your License May be Suspended even if Adjudication is Withheld.

Under Florida Statute 316.191(2): "A person may not:
(a) Drive any motor vehicle, including any motorcycle, in any race, speed competition or contest, drag race or acceleration contest, test of physical endurance, or exhibition of speed or acceleration or for the purpose of making a speed record any highway, roadway, or parking lot;
(b) In any manner participate in, coordinate, facilitate, or collect moneys at any location for any such race, competition, contest, test, or exhibition;
(c) Knowingly ride as a passenger in any such race, competition, contest, test, or exhibition; or
(d) Purposefully cause the movement of traffic to slow or stop for any such race, competition, contest, test, or exhibition."

Fight Your Street Racing Charge!
Depending on the facts of your specific case, experienced Tampa traffic attorney David Gilbert may be able to get your charge reduced or dismissed. It is important that you avoid a Racing on Highway "conviction" because this will result in a ONE YEAR LICENSE SUSPENSION! This one year license suspension may only be avoided if your street racing charge is reduced or dismissed because having adjudication withheld is still counted as a "conviction."

Please note that the outcome of your specific case is heavily dependent upon the facts, conditions, witnesses and officer observations involved in your case. Before you decide to just resolve this charge on your own, please be aware of the lasting impact that it can have on your insurance, driving privilege, and freedom.
