Statute 322.34(1) Unknowingly Driving on a Suspended License: a voluntary payment will count as an adjudication, which could result in the loss of your driving privilege. A five-year suspension of your driving privileges is the result of being adjudicated to three citations in a five-year period or having a combination of three citations for DWLS/R and DUI. If eligible, an election to attend a 4-hour traffic school will dispose the case as a Withhold of Adjudication, thereby causing no future impact to your license for the citation. 

Statute 316.074(1) Traffic Control Device/Red Light: if the citation contains "Red Light" in the description, it will be processed as Traffic Control Device/Red Light, which carries the higher fine amount and four points. If "Red Light" is not contained in the citation description, the violation is processed as Traffic Control Device/Fail to Obey, which is three points.
