Ticketed for a Traffic Offense? We Can Help You Fight Your Charges
New York City’s streets are dotted with traffic signs. Most commonly, they prohibit turns. However, this section of the law can include a plethora of other instructions that drivers often disobey. New York officers enforce specific intersections looking for unaware motorists to make an illegal turn. It can happen to any driver who is not careful. A conviction carries two points and a minimum fine of $138.
