Thank you for your question. Is it possible that the notice you received was from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles and not from the court where your ticket was handled? While your question seems to indicate that you do not have any other points on your license, it may be helpful to...Read more »
Thank you for your question. The first thing I would recommend is that you contact the attorney who handled the ticket (and got it dismissed) for you and see if he/she can explain or look into the cause of the suspension.

This is my first time getting a ticket. Had two of my sons 16&17 up on the roof, told them to knock it off and when they were bout to go down, cops pulled us over. Should I fight for a trial or just plead guilty? If I do, will I lose my driving privileges?
The officer said that It would not effect my record but I haven't found anything online confirming that so if you can please help me and answer my question that would be great. If I get this on my record I am going to lose a scholarship I earned and although it is fully deserved I need to know... Read more »
Generally no. Other factors may change the answer (any fatality invovled, Class A endorcement or not, etc). Careless driving summons are among the frequently issued tickets in NJ just like reckless driving ones in NY.

More information is needed for a better answer. A grant of hardship privilege is based upon the finding of the statutory conditions and not just your age. But if you are 16 and in high school, you will not allowed any privilege if you just want to drive to and from a high school.

It's recommended that you retain a local "NC" attorney. Upon information and belief, reckless driving is classified in NC as a misdemeanor just like NY. If you get convicted of the charge, that means you have a criminal record, which possibly affects your conditional discharge. You...Read more »
Not sure what the question is. If you ignore the ticket, your driver's license will be suspended in both NY and NJ. If you pay the ticket in NY you will have a record of conviction in both NY and NJ. Do you want to fight the ticket?
