Nassau County Traffic Violation Attorney 

Defending Against Traffic Violation Charges in New York

If you receive a traffic ticket in New York, you may think it’s easiest just to pay the fine and be done with it. However, due to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles’ points system, paying a fine and accepting the charges can turn out to cost you a great deal down the road.

At Lerner & Lerner, P.C., we have helped many individuals in Nassau County and across Long Island fight traffic violation tickets to keep points off their records. We can tell you exactly what is causing your suspension or revocation and the best way to clear it up. We handle suspended licenses, suspended registration, reckless driving, no insurance and all other moving violations for New York residents as well as helping out-of-state drivers stopped in New York.

If you've been ticketed for violating New York traffic laws, contact our Nassau County traffic violation lawyer today to discuss your options.

How New York's Points System Affects Your Driving Privileges

As you accumulate points, you could be facing increased insurance rates in addition to court fines and DMV assessment fees. In addition, multiple offenses may result in license suspension or revocation, as well as a driver responsibility fee.

Points for speeding tickets vary depending on how fast the driver was going. The point system for other traffic violations includes the following:

  • 3 points: Leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, violations involving traffic signals, stop signs or yield signs, improper passing, unsafe lane change, driving left of center, driving in the wrong direction and seat belt violations for minors under 16
  • 4 points: Tailgating
  • 5 points: Passing a school bus, reckless driving and using a cellphone or texting

Receiving 11 points or more in an 18-month period (going back to the date of the violation, not the conviction), may lead to a license suspension or revocation. Additionally, pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge like driving without insurance can result in costly civil penalties and a one-year mandatory revocation of your license.

In many cases, we can talk the violation down to a lesser charge, or we will work to clear the charge entirely. Oftentimes, fighting a traffic violation can save you money now, and in the future.
