Violation of a Traffic Control Device is a common citation issued by Florida law enforcement officers. In many cases this citation is issued instead of a speeding ticket. In many cases this citation carries a lower fine and points.
This section may be used in situations other than speeding violations.
According to Florida Staute 316.003, the definition of an official traffic control device is:
All signs, signals, markings, and devices, not inconsistent with this chapter, placed or erected by authority of a public body or official having jurisdiction for the purpose of regulating, warning, or guiding traffic.
Law enforcement officers may use this section to issue red light, stop sign, no u-turn, and other traffic control device violations.
