What Types Of Traffic Offense Cases Does Your Firm Handle?
I am supremely confident in obtaining the very best results for my customers. The most common traffic tickets that my firm fights are speeding tickets. Speeding tickets carry the potential for the most immediate and serious consequences for motorists’ privilege to drive. And, driving is such a vital and integral part of living throughout New York State that each ticket must be taken seriously.
What Are The Implications Of Being Ticketed In A Construction Zone Or A School Zone?
The points that are associated with any given speed increase incrementally in 10 mile per hour brackets. For example, the lowest speeding violation there is the three point speed and that would be one to 10 miles over the speed limit. Then, 11 to 20 over is four points, 21 to 30 over is six points, 31 to 40 over is eight points, and 41 over is 11 points. Eleven points is the threshold for automatic suspension from the DMV. People hire counsel because it typically increases their chances of keeping their license intact, by means of either defeating the ticket outright or negotiating from a position of strength. School zones and construction zones are aggravating factors that carry enhanced penalties.
While school or construction zones are aggravating factors – they’re not dispositive of the final outcome of the case. All traffic tickets are serious because they all may have far reaching consequences. If you have 11 or more points within 18 months of the issuance of each ticket, you will be suspended. If you have three speeding convictions, no matter what the speed is, within 18 months of each other, your license will be revoked for a minimum of six months and restored only at the discretion of the DMV. And, they may not be very sympathetic with the plight of the motorist. In fact, recently, the governor approved a regulation from the DMV that extended the 10 year look back period for a motorist to 25 years. That means the whole driving history can come into play and if the DMV deems a motorists to be a persistent violator, they may not reissue that license for a period of years. The best route is to defend every single ticket as it comes because you never know how it’s going to accumulate and come back to haunt you and adversely affect the health of your driving privilege.
