The penalty of a "failure to show proof of insurance" violation is a fine only. It's a credential violation, not a moving violation. No point. No suspension. If you appear in court (virtually/remotely) and show the proof, some prosecutors may dismiss it; others don't. It all...Read more »
39: 4-88E is a 2-point traffic fraction in NJ. If you are a NY driver, it's highly likely that the points won't transfer. However, the lane violation can be considered to be one of the "serious traffic offenses" under VTL when committed by a CDL driver operating a commercial...Read more »
It depends on various factors including where the alleged offense happened, where your case will be heard, whether you have a valid "legally sufficient" defense, etc. Your moving violation can also be amended to a non-moving offense by way of plea negotiation in certain forums. You can...Read more »
If the tickets were issued to your spouse, then she has to defend the summonses. Calling and speaking with the court clerk will not help. Depending on your township, the court date is likely to be one or two months after the incident, which may help you since there is a law called "statute of...Read more »
You will need to show either you were not the driver or you did not fail to obey the signal. Often times, the officer claims you ran a red light and you claim the traffic light was yellow. Depending on the township, you may be able to get "meaningful" discovery (police video, intersection...Read more »
You may want to speak with an experienced traffic attorney who has the sense of the township and its locality. Different townships and municipal prosecutor(s) have different personalities and policies. How your case should be approached and will be resolved may also depend on several factors such...Read more »
In NY, your junior license holder will be suspended for 60 days if you commit a serious traffic violation. A serious traffic violation usually means a violation with 3 or more points. In NY, a speeding offense, if convicted, carries 3 points if your speed was 1-10mph over the speed limit. Yes,...Read more »
My husband got a traffic ticket in the morning while dropping our son to school. He passed a school bus (failed to notice) stopped in the opposite direction. He was going to drop off our son to school early. The incident happened right after he backed out from our driveway. It was a chaotic... Read more »
Under VTL 1174, a driver must stop for a school bus picking up or discharging passengers. It's a straight forward statute with no consideration of the driver's intent. Your personal necessity (of getting to school early) or other factors (such as a bad weather, "everybody was passing...Read more »
I bought the car in a private sale and attempted to drive it to the DMV with license plates from my previous car. Officer pulled me over and impounded the car. He issued me two tickets: driving/parking unregistered car and then fictitious plates. After the incident I immediately went and... Read more »
If you bought a vehicle and the temp plate came with the vehicle, then you may be able to argue that you didn't know it was fake since the shop put it on. Driving unregistered vehicle is a minor violation which practically carries a fine only. It's a payable ticket but the fine will go up...Read more »
If you received the speeding ticket in NYC and that's the only ticket you got, then your case will be heard in the place called "Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB)" which looks like another court but it's actually an administrative "agency" run by the NY DMV, not the...Read more »
In NYS, you are most likely required to stop whenever a school bus is stopping on a public highway, street or private road for the purpose of picking up or discharging passengers and one red signal lamp is flashing.
Assuming that you have a NY license, yes, 1110A will put "2" points on your license. If the original speeding is 70 in 65, 1110A may seem a little bit unreasonable, but it depends on the circumstances surrounding your case and policy and personality of the town/village and/or the...Read more »
Car slide on ice and hit a pole. No drinking involved. Called AAA, they said they’d arrive shortly. It was cold and my husband had a cut on hand, not severe. My son picked up my husband, took him to our home to treat injury and I waited for A A A. Waited 2 hrs. Someone called police while I was... Read more »
First, your husband didn't get a summons for DWI, which is a relieving thing (even if there is no way for him to get convicted of that). FYI, Red eye, bloodshot and watery eyes, slurred speech, etc. are not necessary indicia of being under influence.
I got two tickets in January of 2019. Seatbelt and speeding (speed in zone 11-30, 4 points). I initially filed a written response in lieu of appearance. Court has adjourned it on its own (I never requested adjournment) 4 times. They just recently adjourned it to July 2022. Is it possible to get it... Read more »
My mom is in a nursing home. They are asking me to become her power of attorney. Her husband he still lives home is not doing well and will probably pass soon. The nursing home is trying to put my mom on medicaid to pay for her long term treatment. When her husband dies, will the nursing home get... Read more »
This has to be thoroughly examined and analyzed. Who is the beneficiary of the policy? What is the cash value (not benefit) of it? Whose house is her spouse living now? Medicaid application must be well cultivated and planned in advance because there is a cap for both income and assets of the...Read more »
It's not quite clear what is being asked here, but if a penalty period is concerned, in NY, you do not "pay" penalties to Medicaid to cure or get rid of the penalty period. If your penalty period was conclusively determined to be 6 months due to transactions such as certain transfers...Read more »
I have a court case where I was "speeding 41 over" which is the exact amount for automatic suspension. Officer pulled me over and was immediately annoyed about a sticker on my windshield. He told me to take it off my windshield and to never put it on even though it was from a PBA... Read more »
Sorry for the situation. If you received the speeding ticket in NYC and that's the only ticket you got, then your case will be heard in the place called "Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB)" which looks like another court but it's actually an administrative "agency" run by...Read more »
