While getting a traffic ticket might seem like a minor inconvenience, it can actually have a serious impact on your life if you choose to just accept your conviction. When you do get a ticket, you have the choice simply paying the fine and taking the other penalties, or fighting your ticket in court. If you want to fight the ticket and try to avoid some of all of the potential penalties, you will increase your chances at success by hiring an attorney. David Galison is experienced in New York traffic courts and is looking forward taking up your case.
There are two main types of penalties for a conviction on a traffic violation – fines and points on your driving record. While fines are never any fun to pay, the points on your record are often of more concern. Many standard traffic violations add three points to your record – if you hit six points in an 18 month period, you will see additional fines. Reach 11 points, and you may even see your drivers license suspended. Because of the escalating nature of the penalties, keeping all possible traffic tickets off your record is in your best interest.
Some of the possible traffic tickets you could choose to fight in court include -
- Reckless Driving
- Failure to Signal
- No Insurance
- Improper Turn
- Illegal U-Turn
- Driving Between Lanes
