As an NYC TLC ticket lawyer, I work with a surprising number of drivers that are unaware of how serious a ticket from the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) can be.
Some people do not realize that you can receive a ticket from the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission directly. The commission has the full authority to regulate drivers, and if they feel you are in violation of either their rules or city regulations, they can ticket you for it.
If you feel you were unfairly ticketed, you can work with a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission ticket lawyer to fight the charges.
The TLC can ticket drivers for any of the following:
A ticket from the TLC should be treated as seriously as a traffic ticket from the city or state. Many drivers are unsure of how to contest a TLC ticket. If you need assistance with yours, contact a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission ticket lawyer for help.
If you receive a ticket from the TLC, you can request a hearing and contest it. Often, the charges will go through the hearing process anyway.
You will be required to report to a conference held by a judge with the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings. At the conference, the judge will work to resolve the case without the need for a formal hearing. You can have an attorney attend the conference with you and handle negotiations on your behalf.
Since a ticket from the TLC can impact your current and future ability to earn an income, it is critical that you do what you can to build a defense for why you should not be ticketed or have your license suspended. Your NYC TLC ticket lawyer will assist you throughout this process.
If you do not contest the ticket or if you are convicted, your ticket is likely to come with a fine.
For example, if you are found guilty of speeding, you could pay $300 or $400 in fines. If you are found guilty of reckless behavior that endangered passengers, your fine could be $1,000 and your license may also be suspended.
Your NYC TLC ticket lawyer can tell you what the potential fines and penalties may be based on what you have been accused of.
As a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission ticket lawyer, I can answer any additional questions you have about the process, how to fight a ticket, and what the potential ramifications could be if you do not fight it during a consultation.
