Legal Answers
235 Questions Answered

Q. Got ticket when turning left from 96th into 2nd Av along with yellow arrow going off but still green light...
A: The question is not whether the pedestrians had the light: if the pedestrians were in the crosswalk, you were required to yield. Even if you were technically guilty, you might win at trial. Even if you were not guilty, the officer's story might be different when he testifies at trial.
Q. Point reduction system
A: Usually the answer is no: the class helps for ticket received/issued 18 months prior to the date of the course. In your case, I am assuming that your ticket is filed somewhere in NYC, where the Judges (ALJs) have discretion to look at the points differently, and can take into consideration a class which was technically taken outside the 18 month time frame.
Q. We got a violation that we need commercial plates because we have lettering on a passenger vehicles.
A: Now you fight the tickets. You can appear in court yourself, or hire a lawyer to argue the case for you.
Q. How do I fill this out (...plea guilty to _______ in violation of traffic sections _______...)
A: No idea what form you are reading. Please post again with the name of the form you are filling out, and the court you are dealing with.
Q. How many days notice does a lawyer need to be able to contact the courts after handing in the ticket
A: For traffic tickets you can find an attorney who can handle it last minute. Even the day of.
Q. Received ticket for failure to notify address change, changed it on dmv website and never received further info.
A: This ticket does not carry points, but it may affect your driving record. You can choose to either plead not guilty and fight it or plead guilty and pay the fine.
Q. If I was pulled over issued no tickets in Johnstown new York can an officer call me 2 weeks later and ask me to come in
A: They can ask you, but you should not talk to the police without an attorney.
Q. My husband got a speed tix in PA. Tix in my name (car owner) but his DOB & DL listed on ticket tho. Can it be thrown out
A: You posted in NY. Report in PA.
Q. I went to court in 2000 for a moving violation that I know it wasn't me. ticket was from 1998.
A: Sounds like he said she said. The officer says they gave you the ticket, and the judge believed the officer, and found you guilty. If you have a warrant, that means there is probably a criminal charge issued as well for driving suspended. If you cannot afford a attorney, you may be eligible for a free attorney.
