Was recently pulled over with what I thought was an expired license (I live in Brooklyn and rarely drive, idiotic and lazy I know). They brought back tickets unpaid from 16 years ago and suspended my license. Is there a statute, and if I hire a lawyer is this something they could fight and knock... Read more »
This is a 6 point violation. Even though you have a California license, if you are found guilty of this violation, the points would remain on your record in New York for 18 months. If you reach 11 points or 3 speeding convictions within an 18 month period you will lose your driving privileges in...Read more »

You can handle the matter yourself. However, you are facing 3 points if found guilty. If you have an attorney appear on your behalf you do not need to go to court. An experienced traffic attorney might be able to reduce the ticket to a non-moving, no points violation. An attorney might even be able...Read more »
If you are referring to a red light camera ticket, (that one receives by mail) then you are liable for the ticket as the registered owner of the vehicle. If the ticket remains unpaid you could face license or registration suspension.

It depends on the type of ticket you are referring to. If parking tickets, you are responsible as the owner of the vehicle. If moving violations where someone gave your name, you should dispute these tickets with proof of incarceration.
On July 8, 2018 at 10:49pm, I got a ticket in New York State on I-87 highway when I was driving back to Massachusetts from Canada after a short trip. I didn't realize there is a law about moving to left lane when a cop car is parking and flashing on the right shoulder. I was driving on the right... Read more »
This is a 3 point violation. You should mail the ticket back pleading not guilty. You will be notified by mail of a conference date.

I received a ticket in May 2015. Pled not guilty. In Jan 2018 I received a letter from court with a pre trial date set for April 2018. How soon after the not guilty plea should be the court date? What's the time limit for prosecution?
Hi, just got a ticket in Manhattan (blocked an intersection). It correctly identifies the vehicle, but as for my identification - it only has slightly misspelled last name. No first name, no address, nothing. If I ignore the ticket and do nothing, is there a way for the cops to get me?
It depends on where you received the ticket. If the ticket was in NYC then your failure to respond would have resulted in a default conviction. In any event, you will have to pay a $70 fee to lift the suspension
The speed was not posted near location of violation and I was traveling down a hill I told the officer I was unaware of the speed limit thinking it to be 40mph this is my second violation and I can not afford to get a lawyer. Should I do mitigation or plead not guilty in court
Hello! I've just received a speeding ticket in Nassau County, NY and had questions about the process of pleading not guilty. I was given a date on the ticket to mail in not guilty, or show up in person to plead not guilty.
So i was waiting for my wife to get out the house. I was illegally double parked, but i was there just for an instance. I saw the traffic agent, not a even a police officer get out his car trying to give me a ticket. I was sitting in the driver seat, why would he even try? Just asking can they do... Read more »
