I recieved two traffic tickets for failure to notify the DMV of change of address for my license and registration. My registration was a current mailing address, but it was a PO Box, not my residential address. I have since updated both to my proper residential address. However, I went to the court... View More
In New York State, handling traffic tickets for failure to notify the DMV of an address change can be managed by taking a few steps. Firstly, it's positive that you've already updated your address with the DMV. You should bring proof of this update, such as confirmation from the DMV, to...View More
I plead not guilty via mail. I was told I receive a letter of when my trial date is. I was told I was suppose to receive it 2 months ago. I've checked with my TPVA they said my trial was still in pending status. I was never given a supporting deposition when I requested it. Can I get my ticket... View More
In New York, if you have pleaded not guilty to a traffic ticket and are awaiting a trial date, there can be delays in the system, especially given the backlog in many courts. However, these delays do not automatically lead to a dismissal of your ticket. The lack of a supporting deposition, if you...View More
In New York, if you've been pulled over for lack of insurance and have pled not guilty, the next step is to prepare for your court appearance. Since you have a clean record and some proof of previous insurance, these factors may work in your favor. It's important to gather all relevant...View More
The cop ignored him. I was scared and a little tipsy so I started crying and the cop was like why are u crying it’s a ticket, I told him it was because of the man over there making me feel extremely uncomfortable (cop was recording me which I know was my friend describing what’s going on in it)...

In such a situation, while the presence of a more serious crime doesn't automatically nullify a lesser offense, the context of your emotional distress and the circumstances leading to your fare evasion ticket may be relevant in your defense.
I received a yellow ticket for jumping the turnstile. In a panic, I provided a foreign fake identification with my correct name but false DOB (correct day and month but wrong year). The officer who issued the ticket did not write down any address, but he did write the ID # (which was also false).... View More
It is possible for authorities to connect the ticket to you despite the incorrect details, especially if you have a unique name. Law enforcement can use various data points to identify individuals, and partial matches, such as the correct name and birth date, might lead them to investigate further....View More
This is something that a traffic ticket attorney could advise best on, but you're awaiting a response for a week, and it isn't clear if time is of the essence in your matter. At this point, one option is to reach out to traffic ticket attorneys if you continue to get no responses. In...View More
First you need to make sure you clear up everything with the DMV, pay any fines and, if you need, turn in your plates. Once that is cleared up, you need to clear up your situation with the SCTPVA. You need to pay whatever default fines were assessed. Speak to a traffic attorney.
In New York, it is generally required for a driver to use a right turn signal when turning right, even if they are in a designated right-turn-only lane. Using a turn signal helps indicate your intentions to other drivers and pedestrians, promoting safe and predictable driving behavior.
NYS DMV instructions are - " ...Always signal before you turn or change lanes. It is important that other highway users know your intentions. The law requires you to signal a turn or lane change with your turn lights or hand signals at least 100 feet (30 m) ahead."...View More
Yes. VTL 1144A is a 3 point violation. Points can raise your insurance, cause DMV assessments and, with enough, suspend your license. 1202(b)(2) is a parking ticket. This carries no points. The fine might be higher but, in the long run, not having points is a better deal.
I got a speeding ticket (15 miles/h above speed limit) and I plead not guilty. Subsequently, I received a letter requesting me to complete an online course, which I successfully completed. Now, I have received a Plea Reduction letter, which allows me to enter a guilty plea to the following charge:... View More
I am not sure why you were asked to take the course and got a fine if you pled not guilty. Regardless, the reduction is from a 4 point violation to a 0 point violation. No points is good. 4 points could result in a higher insurance rate, a DMV assessment and, if you accumulate 11 points, a...View More
Unless this speeding ticket aggregates more than 11 points on your license you need to send in a plea of eiother guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty they court or agency (depends on the county or town) will send a bill for the fine. If you plead not guilty you will get a court date to...View More
if your driver's license is suspended or revoked in one participating state, other participating states may honor that suspension and take corresponding actions against your driving privileges within their jurisdiction. This means that if New Jersey suspends your New York driver's...View More
I was stopped by an undercover after getting off the exit from an expressway. I was told I was speeding. Then he proceeded to give tickets for tinted windows, cellphone, and a speeding ticket. Can I fight this and have all the tickets thrown out?
You can fight the tickets in the Manhattan Traffic Violations Court, but your argument about the status of the officer will fall flat. You could contest whether you were using the cellphone by obtaining prone records from your carrier, and question the accuracy of radar (if that is what was...View More
Location of occurrence is 5 blocks behind where the cops stopped me. First thing he said after he approached and looked inside, is that a GPS? (My cell phone was tucked between my torso and thigh, i literally have to look down and look at it and then i wouldn't be able to as it is upside down)... View More
You have a chance to fight it as you bring up legitimate evidentiary points which you can cross examine the officer as to how he could have observed the infraction, and the prosecution must prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt. But to answer your question more realistically, my long experience...View More
Hi. Every state is different. However New Jersey will add 2 points for every New York violation. More importantly, your insurance carrier is able to out-of-state violations which could result in an increase in your insurance premium. As such, you should absolutely contact a New York attorney to...View More

That means unlicensed operation and improper plate charges will be covered under your plea to the amended charge with no independent plea to them. You will only be pleading to the reduced offense amended from the speeding. You need to note, however that disobeying a traffic device IS a moving...View More

Hi. This is an 8 point speeding violation. You basically have two options-plea bargain (negotiate) or trial. In general, for a high speeding ticket like this it is best to plea bargain with the prosecutor to have your violation reduced in order to avoid a heavy impact on your insurance premium....View More
If this is your first speeding ticket (or the first in over 18 months) your ticket should be able to be reduced. You need to put in a not guilty pleas ASAP (keep a copy of the ticket before you mail it in), or go to an experienced traffic lawyer who can handle everything for you and you would not...View More
Unfortunately, an unmarked trooper can issue a traffic summons. You can, and should, always fight a moving violation. An experienced attorney can generally plea bargain with the prosecutor and have your speeding violation reduced to something with less points (or no points) which is far less...View More
