Q: Asking for help for ticket 39:4-57 (Failure to comply) at Newark airport
I went to Newark airport at midnight several days ago to pickup my wife and 7-year old son. I stop at passenger pickup zone 1 and walk around my my to find where my wife is. I stayed there for less then one minute and then a female policeman came and asked me to leave. So I drove away and plan to come back later through the circle road in the airport. The problem is my wife kept calling me at that time, so I stop at the passenger pickup zone 5 to answer her call. The same policeman showed up again and gave me the ticket. "court appearance required" is checked in the ticket. Do I need to hire a lawyer, and how much it may cost? The policeman just told me that "you need leave here". In my mind, I think it means "leave passenger pickup zone 1". The zone 5 is 30 feet in front of zone 1 and there are just several cars waiting there. Can this be concluded that I did not follow her order when I stop at zone 5 to make a call? If I plead not guilty, is there any chance that I can win? Thanks
A: Yes it is a violation of the police officers order you were supposed to leave the area unless you were immediately picking up a passenger. As for lawyers fees were not allowed to put them here on this website but you can contact a lawyer most of us offer free in office consultations for traffic ticket matters.
Tim Akpinar agrees with this answer
A: You must defiantly should consult with an attorney. The ticket you have been issued carries not only fines but 2 motor vehicle points being assessed to your Drivers Licenses. An assessment of points may cause your insurance premiums to increase. My office has a free no obligation consultation for traffic matters. Feel free to give us a call! Have a wonderful and healthy Holiday!
