Coventry, CT asked in Traffic Tickets for Rhode Island

Q: Is a ticket for not having my headlights on while it’s raining count as a moving violation?

More importantly my concern is if it counts towards the Colin Foote act because I know I am close to 4 in 18 months

A: If you were moving, it's likely a moving violation. The condition of rain is another factor that an attorney would also be likely to argue depending on the conditions that you were to be in during the alleged violation. If you have had a series of infractions, you would do well to retain an attorney to advocate for you before the next traffic tribunal hearing.
