a police officer happens to be in building and showed up at court. he asked me if it's possible that the ruben Lopez which is me , got this ticket.. I said its impossible, because I never got stopped by any black police officer in my life.. this cop lied and he knows it and I know it, anyway judge... Read more »
Sounds like he said she said. The officer says they gave you the ticket, and the judge believed the officer, and found you guilty. If you have a warrant, that means there is probably a criminal charge issued as well for driving suspended. If you cannot afford a attorney, you may be eligible for a...Read more »
On July 25, 2018 I was pulled over and issued a ticket for violating VTL 1123. (After the fact, I realized I actually violated VTL 1124, the officer referenced the wrong statute.) I pleaded not guilty and received paperwork from the town court confirming they received my plea and noting they would... Read more »
There are a number of points in the proceedings where different statutes of limitations apply. I assume you are asking about the start of the case, which is one year form the date of offense. If that is not what you had in mind, ask again with more specificity.
When you recived the ticket you were required to plead guilty or not guilty by a certain date. (should have been somewhere on the ticket) you can call the court to figure out the next step to getting your license un-suspended, or you can hire an attorney to do that for you.
Ticket was for holding an electronic device (GPS). Since the ticket said it was in the Bronx I have to go to the DMV there instead of Brooklyn. This was 2 years ago and now is my court date after all that time. Is there a possibility for dismissal?
License, its VTL 509-5 it's my first ticket or time getting pulled over how much would it cost for that if I plead guilty or do you think I could get it dismissed because it's a first time, I just turned 19 too.
Geico says if she doesn’t pay, they will report her to the NY DMV where she will get fined and have her license revoked since her insurance was cancelled before she surrendered her plates. Her insurance was cancelled 10/2018, but her plates weren’t surrendered until 6/2019. She had called... Read more »
This is difficult problem to untangle. There are probably a few more pieces to the puzzle. For instance, was she insured in CA? I can't understand this from your question. Even if she pays the fine, her license would be suspended in NY for around 9 months. Then the questions becomes whether she...Read more »
If you are a traffic light that is a turn signal light, and there are only two circles (green and yellow), then when there is no light (both circles are black), are you allowed to wait at that intersection for the turn? Also, does that mean you are allowed to turn at your own discretion?
We both know that the third light is supposed to be red, but its broken. According to the NY vehicle and traffic law, you don't have to stop because the red light isn't visible HOWEVER if you drive into oncoming traffic, you will crash. So wait until the green light comes back.

On 2/7/19 we visited the Valley of Fire. When exiting the park I was pulled over and issued a ticket from a Tribal Officer from the Moapa Band of Paiutes. The officer said he clocked me in 3 different speed zones, all while he was parked near the exit just before I-15. I was given a ticket for $365... Read more »
traveling 2pm afternoon sunny day no traffic infractions. I believe NJ cannot enforce NY registration statutes as I have been ticketed for expired safety inspection but showed the statute reflecting their enforcing of only NJ registered vehicles.
