I was driving by myself in the HOV (High Occupency Vehicle) lane in Broward county. I live in Palm Beach County.
The lawyer would be used to potentially get me out of driving school or maybe even having to pay the fine. Seems like a stretch but maybe others have done it.

Florida Statute 316.074(1) is a generic statute used for violation of a traffic control device. Technically, anything could be a traffic control device. It doesn't have to be a stop sign or red light. So some officers use this statute to cite drivers who violate the HOV lane sign restriction. If your ticket has this statute, and you pay it, you will get points on your license. In other words, don't just pay it.

There are two kinds of HOV tickets. Pay attention to the parenthetical below, they matter.
HOV TICKET FOR VIOLATING 316.074(1)
If you get a ticket for violating the HOV law, you might get cited under 316.074 (1). This is the "catch all" statute. That means, that it covers several types of violations like running a red light or an illegal U-turn. Basically, it says that you ignored a traffic control device and you will get points for this traffic ticket. Thus, if you EVER get a ticket under 316.074(1), call the Traffic Ticket Team ASAP.
HOV TICKET FOR VIOLATING 316.0741
If you get a traffic ticket for driving in the HOV lane, you might get a ticket under 316.0741. This is specific to HOV violations and has no parenthetical. This HOV ticket does not carry points. However, like a Red Light Camera ticket that carries no points, you should not pay this ticket either. If you do, it will be on your record and can still adversely effect you.
