Want to fight a traffic ticket with your phone? Lawyers want to stop you


A Coral Gables tech startup launched a service that offered drivers an easy way to get their minor traffic tickets dismissed with less hassle – and no points on their record. Just upload the ticket through its web app, CEO Christopher Riley said, and TIKD would take it from there.

But a brick-and-mortar competitor claims that TIKD has run a legal red light. The Florida Bar is in the early stages of a lengthy process that eventually could possibly put the brakes on the app in Florida.

The charge: that TIKD is practicing law without a license.
