Traffic Violations in New York

There are various kinds of traffic violations. The most common one-and probably the first one that comes to mind-is a speeding ticket. Anytime a law is violated through a vehicle, it is considered a traffic violation. What you may not have known is that there are two kinds of traffic violations: moving and non-moving.

Moving Violations

Moving violations occur when a traffic law is violated by a vehicle in motion. Other than speeding tickets, other common moving violations can include running a stop sign or driving drunk. If you do things such as turn right on red when you are not allowed, follow another vehicle too closely, or make an unsafe lane change, you can get ticketed for a moving violation.

Non-Moving Violations

Non-moving violations occur when a traffic law is violated by a vehicle that is not moving. The most common non-moving violations are parking violations, paperwork violations, or vehicle violations. These include things such as having an expired registration and excessive muffler noise.

Understanding the Point System

When you get a traffic violation, you can end up getting points on your license. While this may seem like a minimal consequence, having that mark on your license is problematic. The more points you have, the higher the fines that you may have to pay out, as well as the penalties. This is one of the reasons why it is so important to hire an attorney to help you fight the violation. That way, you can avoid having any points on your license in the first place.

Traffic Violation Fines and Penalties

Traffic violation fines and penalties vary depending on what the violation is and whether or not you have any previous points on your license. Non-moving violations don't get points, but there is usually a fine involved. If you have a parking violation, you can get your car towed and not only have to pay the ticket fine, but the fine to get your car back. When it comes to moving violations, the penalties can range from a speeding ticket fine to jail time for a drunk driving felony.

Fighting a Traffic Violation

There are a few defenses when it comes to fighting a traffic violation, including:

  • Disputing the Officer
  • Disputing the Evidence
  • Mistake of Fact
  • Action was Justified

You don't have to accept a traffic violation without a fight. At the end of the day, an experienced traffic violation attorney will know what defenses to argue in order to help you with your case.
