Moving vs Non-Moving Violations in Florida
A non-moving violation is a traffic infraction that violates the law but is not associated with the driver’s maneuvering of the vehicle. Some common non-moving violations include:
- Parking violations, such as parking in front of a fire hydrant or parking in a no-parking zone
- Vehicle safety violations, such as excessive muffler noise, too-dark window tint, or missing license plate
- Expired vehicle registration
- Driving with expired registration
- Driving without insurance
- No seat belt worn
These violations usually result in smaller fines, as opposed to moving violations, however, they can still go on your driving record.
A moving violation occurs when a traffic law is violated by a vehicle in motion. Some common violations include:
- Careless driving
- Improper backing
- Failure to obey a traffic control device
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Stop sign violations
- Failing to signal a turn
- Improper lane change
- Racing and reckless driving
- Driving too fast for conditions
Moving violations carry points and too many violations can result in having your license suspended.
