What is a Habitual Traffic Offender in Florida?
According to Fla. Stat. § 322.264, an individual who has numerous traffic crime convictions within a five-year period will be classified as a habitual traffic offender. HTOs could face permanent revocation or suspension of their license for up to five years. One way to become an HTO is to receive 15 or more traffic convictions within a five-year period.
You will also be considered an HTO if you are convicted of three of any of the following offenses within a five-year period:
- Driving under the influence
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Failure to stop and give aid in an accident involving bodily injury or death
- Driving with a revoked or suspended license
- Driving a vehicle requiring a CDL on a suspended driver’s license
- Any felony involving a motor vehicle

If you are like many others, you might be inclined to treat a traffic offense as a minor violation. It might seem reasonable to just pay the fine and move on. What most people fail to realize is that a traffic offense can be just as detrimental as various other types of crimes. In addition to hefty fines and even jail time, a traffic conviction will show up on your permanent record and could affect future education and employment opportunities. You could also lose your driving privileges, be required to attend traffic school, and face higher insurance premiums.
