Traffic Violations in Queens, NY
Between 2014 and 2017, over 3.5 million traffic tickets were issued, most of which were given for violations such as speeding, disobeying a traffic device and driving an uninspected motor vehicle. In April 2020 alone, there have been over 1,000 reported cases of speeding, with the second most common traffic violation being driving without a license in Queens, NY.
This shows just how common it is to commit a traffic offense, whether you realize it or not. Considering how often you use your vehicle to get to work, run errands and go just about anywhere that’s not walking distance, the likeliness of you getting a traffic ticket is higher. Given this, our traffic ticket defense attorney continues to successfully handle thousands of traffic tickets, so you don’t have to worry about whether we are the right legal team for you.
Penalties for Traffic Violations
Your penalty will not only depend on whether or not you hire our accomplished attorney to represent you, but it will also vary based on the type of offense you’re ticketed for as well as your driving record.
Most traffic tickets require you to pay fines. It is likely that points will also be added to your driving record, increasing your chances of paying costly insurance premiums and suffering a license suspension and/or revocation.
