Hochman & Goldin Encourages Responsible Driving

LogoAlcohol consumption will impair virtually every one of the skills required for safe driving, including reaction time, vision, concentration, and practicing sound judgment. For drivers that plan to drink, they should make arrangements to make sure a sober, designated driver can take them home. They may also wish to consider using a ridesharing service such as Uber. Depending on their location, the Tow to Go service by AAA is another option.

Hochman & Goldin Discuss Basic Rules of the Road

LogoFlorida law doesn't explicitly state anything regarding the right of way, but there are rules in place regarding when or how to yield. At a four-way stop, for example, the first driver to arrive at the stop is the one who has the right of way. If two drivers happen to make it to the stop at the same time, the driver on the right should be the one to proceed first.

Hochman & Goldin May Be Able to Help with Obtaining Courthouse Documents

LogoAfter September 8, the Clerk office intends to close offices in all branch courts, including those in the North Dade area and Coral Gables. These branch closings will also result in the end of live phone clerks. At least for the time being, Miami-Dade County residents will need to make use of the online Clerk services and automated phone systems. Residents can, however, still visit the main justice building located in the downtown area of Miami, albeit between the hours of 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.

Hochman & Goldin Discuss Florida's New License Overhaul

LogoThe new license and ID design is largely intended to boost security. However, there are also significant cosmetic changes in store to differentiate them from the current design. For starters, the front of the license/ID will prominently feature the state seal using a pastel hue and the letters FL over a base that's plain white. The back features a picture of Florida, ocean waves, as well as the year 1845 to mark the year in which Florida became a part of the union as the 27th state. Besides the standard portrait on the front with a transparent background, the portrait will appear three additional times in different spots.

Hochman & Goldin Discuss Teenage Driving Laws

LogoFor a driver to obtain a Learner's License, he or she has to be at least fifteen years of age. Once the driver receives his or her Learner's License, driving privileges are relegated to the daylight hours during the first three months of receiving the Learner's License. Once the three-month period is over, the driver may only operate the vehicle until 10 pm. Drivers with a Learner's License must be accompanied at all times by a passenger who is at least 21 years of age and has a valid license.

Hochman & Goldin Discusses Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

LogoBy law, Florida drivers are required to use their turn signal or "blinker" when they intend to turn or change lanes. Because so many drivers fail to use them, there has been a considerable increase in collisions across the country, even more so than collisions caused by distracted driving. Using turn signals not only makes the roads safer for everyone, it could also reduce driver road rage.

Hochman & Goldin Highlights #JustAdulting

LogoThe #JustAdulting is an informative app to address many of the real world situations teenagers and young adults will run into while also providing financial tips.

An additional and relevant section includes vital information on what steps to take when dealing with police.

Hochman & Goldin Discusses the Progress of SB 144

LogoSB 144 successfully passed through a transportation sub-committee, clearing one of its first major hurdles. The bill was formerly meant for any driver age eighteen or under, making texting while driving a primary violation. However, the bill was quickly amended to target all drivers regardless of their age, not just teenagers.
