Red Light Violations

New York City Red Light Ticket Defense Attorney

What Happens When You Run a Red Light in NY?

Traffic violations of any kind incur heavy penalties, and red light violations in NYC are no exception. If you are pulled over by a police officer and ticketed, the penalties will differ from the consequences of being ticketed due to a red light camera. In either situation, it's important to get the help of an experienced red light ticket lawyer who can help you explore your legal options and fight to keep this charge off of your driving record.

If convicted of running a red light by a police officer, you could face the following:

  • Fines of up to $150
  • Other charges from $80-$85
  • 2 Points on Your Record
  • Jail time (up to 15 days)
  • In some situations, higher insurance rates could be another consequence.

The purpose of a red light is to regulate and guide traffic through an intersection in order to prevent accidents, injury and death. Running a red light can be extremely dangerous, and, in order to combat such behavior, the state of New York harshly penalizes individuals who violate red lights. What the team at Gannes & Musico, LLP understands, is that many times the driver did not mean to run the red and that there are many factors at play in every case.

We can fight on your behalf to reduce or even dismiss your charges. To learn more about your options after red light ticket, give us a call!
