Q. What is a 1202b2 or bz and dig or dlg
A: Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 1202 (b) (2) prohibits parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.

It is a non-moving violation which carries no points. A guilty plea to this section will have no impact upon one's driving record. It is often utilized by Town Prosecutors to reduce a speeding ticket to a no point violation.
Q. Questions regarding ticket-(speed in zone, failed to use designated lane)
A: In answer to your questions:

1. The New York tickets should not impact your California license renewal at this time.

Q. Got a speedingticket this morning but I'm switchingmy license to Connecticut in 2 weeks do I need to go to court
A: You should plead not guilty as all speeding tickets in New York State carry points. Even though you are switching to a Connecticut license, the points would stay on your record in New York for 18 months. If you reach 11 points or 3 speeding convictions within 18 months your privilege to drive in New York will be suspended.

You should be able to plea bargain your ticket to reduce or possible eliminate the points.
