Helping you handle traffic violations in New York

Being pulled over is certainly not fun. When law enforcement stops a motorist, it is often treated as frustrating and an annoyance. While many traffic violations are viewed at as minor, the fact of the matter is that they require a person to pay fines that can sometimes be hefty. And when these violations become much more serious, the penalties associated with it are even more serious. Therefore, taking the time to understand the matter and what consequences could result might help an individual determine a defense route.

A traffic citation might not seem much to New York residents; however, the state has a point system. This means that when a motorist is charged with a traffic violation, points are placed on their driving record. These points last for 18 months. Depending on the severity of the offense, one citation could be several points. Thus, if a driver accumulates 11 points on their driving record, he or she could have his or her driver’s license suspended.

While operating a motor vehicle is a privilege, it is often necessary for individuals to get around. Thus, the possibility of having a driver’s license suspended could be considered a major consequence. Therefore, the legal team at the Law Offices of James L. Riotto is dedicated to helping our clients in the Rochester area understand their situation and how best to assert a defense to have a traffic citation reduced or dismissed.
