Criminal Law Newsletter: December 2014: Traffic Violations Bureau

The Traffic Violations Bureau (“TVB”) is a branch of the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (“DMV”) which handles various traffic violations committed within certain areas including the City of Rochester.

Motorists receiving a ticket returnable to the TVB may find the process daunting and beyond comprehension.  Unlike a traffic citation returnable to a Town or Village Court, your TVB ticket cannot be negotiated or reduced and requires you or your attorney to appear in front of the DMV’s Administration Law Judge.  Also, people are under the misimpression, because of the procedures and policies at the TVB these tickets are not worth fighting or winning.  However, this is not the case.  Do not simply plead guilty.

The Law Office of James L. Riotto has extensive experience in handling TVB cases.  Mr. Riotto and his staff can provide you with individualized legal counsel and effectively represent you in the TVB and seek a positive outcome in your traffic matter.

Do not be misled into thinking these cases are unwinnable or not worth fighting.  This is especially true for people who cannot afford the higher costs associated with a moving violation conviction on their license.    Mr. Riotto and staff have the skills and knowledge necessary to handle your case.

In 2014 alone, The Law Office of James L. Riotto made over 100 appearances in the TVB and was successful in obtaining reductions or dismissals in the vast majority of these cases.  Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

If you or a family member received a ticket returnable to the Traffic Violations Bureau and need effective representation with proven results contact the Law Office of James L. Riotto.
