If you are accused of careless driving in Daytona Beach you should contact Daytona Beach careless driving attorney Kevin J. Pitts. Mr. Pitts focuses his practice on traffic tickets and Daytona Beach DUI defense. Careless driving cases have numerous defenses. Generally we see two types of careless driving. The first type is an accident and the second type is usually driving that irritates an officer. Both of these types of cases have strong defenses. One of the problems the state has with accident cases is that the officer usually doesn't see the accident. The state then needs the other driver to show up along with the officer. If either party misses court the case is dismissed. The officer also has to put a factual basis on the citation. Just writing careless driving is insufficient. If your driving offends an officer that is not sufficient to sustain a conviction for careless driving unless you endanger someone else's person or property. Although I do not advise you to do it under the law you can do doughnuts in an empty parking lot all day long. You will be cited for careless driving but unless it endangers a person or property the case will be dismissed.
