Believe it or not, drivers making u-turns contribute to over 4,000 accidents a year throughout Florida. Unless there’s a posted sign, making a u-turn is permitted just about anywhere, so long as the turn can be completed safely and not interfere with the flow of traffic. Intersections that prohibit making u-turns aren’t there just to throw a navigational curveball, they are made that way for safety. South Florida drivers can also receive a u-turn ticket on the interstate by using a crossover that is for official use only. In Palm Beach and Broward county, u-turn tickets can end up costing over $250, and in Miami-Dade, fines of up to $125. In addition to fines, a u-turn ticket will add 3 points to your license, resulting in an increase in auto insurance rates. Before you go ahead and pay your u-turn ticket and take the points, speak with an expert traffic ticket attorney, who may be able to get your ticket reduced or dismissed.
