Have you received a traffic ticket in the New York City area? Are you concerned about the consequences of what this will do to your driving record as well as the stiff fines that may be involved? Instead of paying the fine, which is an automatic conviction of the traffic offense on your record, you may want the opportunity to defend yourself against your accusers, which is your legal right. If so, we advise you to contact Gannes & Musico, LLP for a free consultation about your traffic offense. Our firm has focused on traffic ticket defense and, in doing so, has gained extensive knowledge and experience that can be put to use for you.
Traffic offenses are generally divided into two types: parking violations and moving violations. Moving violations are the more serious, with heavier fines and penalties. These take place while you are in motion. The most serious moving violations include:
In general, traffic violations that involve alcohol and / or drugs or that place others in danger of serious bodily injury, such as tail-gating, failing to yield, failing to fully stop at a stop sign, changing lanes without using a turn signal, or talking on a cell phone while driving (except when using a hands-free device) can result in high fines and points on your driving record. Other offenses range from seatbelt violations to using the carpool lane illegally, hauling an oversized load, and making an illegal turn.
Many traffic offenses result in points being put on your driving record by the DMV which can raise your insurance premiums or result in a suspended license. For legal assistance with any traffic offense, consult with an Atlantic mall lawyer at our firm who can provide comprehensive and aggressive legal service.
