Fleeing and Eluding

While the Florida Statute for Fleeing or Attempting to Elude a Law Enforcement Officer targets drivers who initiate high-speed chases, it is important to understand that motorists may be susceptible to this charge for continuing to drive at any speed after being ordered to stop. Any charge of fleeing or eluding law enforcement is a felony offense that carries significant consequences.

A conviction for fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement can result in fines, incarceration, and suspension of driving privileges. These charges require a strong defense in order to secure a favorable outcome for the alleged offender.
