For help with an NYC traffic ticket, call the Law Office of James Medows.
A traffic ticket is a frustrating part of any day, but many people underestimate the potential impact on their lives. When you’ve been given a traffic ticket, you need to act fast to handle it.
A moving violation may be a small offense on its own, but the consequences can snowball. Even the fines for a late ticket payment can be difficult to cover. You do, however, have the chance to fight back.
At the Law Office of James Medows, we want to give you the best NYC traffic ticket help possible so you can beat that ticket.
When you decide to plead guilty and pay your traffic ticket fine, you could be paying far more than your initial fee.
In New York, traffic violations are handled under a point system, which assigns a certain amount of points for each type of violation, often depending on the severity of the infraction. For example, speeding has a range of point values, and certain violations like cell phone use will net you more points than failing to yield.
Unfortunately for you as a driver, these points can add up quickly. After eleven points in a year and a half, your license will be suspended, and you will have to pay a fine after that time is up, among other growing fines and penalties that come indirectly from a traffic ticket conviction.
Getting a moving violation conviction can take away your license, your money, and your time, but you can fight it. The DMV gives you the opportunity to plead not guilty and contest your ticket within thirty days of receiving it in a hearing where you will plead your case and explain why you aren’t guilty.
An experienced NYC traffic ticket attorney can help by walking you through the proceedings and helping you identify the best course of action.
Having a lawyer at your side can make the proceedings easier. Traffic infractions are unique in that they have a much quicker set of deadlines: You have thirty days to pay if you plead guilty and the same to file an appeal. Having someone on your side who can move quickly and handle your case can make the difference in getting your ticket dismissed.
