Did you know that Florida Statute Section 316.640(8)(b) provides that a "traffic enforcement agency may not establish a traffic citation quota." Chapter 316 does NOT, however, impose a penalty if a law enforcement agency does create a quote. But a violation of this rule, when you can catch them doing it, might still lead to the dismissal of your traffic ticket.

Recently, several Florida Highway Patrol had to resign over a traffic ticket scandal in the Miami area. Troopers were given a memo that told them to issue at least 2 citations an hour - which is a quota.

The United States Supreme Court rules evidence after an illegal stop may be used if there is an outstanding arrest warrant.
The arrest warrant does not have to be connected to the conduct which led to the stop.
This Supreme Court ruling will have a substantial effect on criminal cases in Florida and throughout the U.S. It is imperative to consult an experienced criminal defense #attorney to see how this recent ruling affects you.
