Many individuals view traffic violations as minor annoyances. Unless a ticket requires them to go to court, they pay their fines and move on. And even for serious violations, they often choose to represent themselves in court rather than retain legal support. By bringing your case to the Law Office of James L. Riotto in Rochester, you benefit from the skill of a criminal traffic law attorney who understands that your future as a licensed driver is at stake and vigorously fights to protect your rights.
Drivers convicted of even relatively minor offenses can face license suspension quickly because each conviction carries points that accrue on their records and remain there for 18 months. Accumulating 11 points immediately sets the suspension process in motion. The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles provides a partial listing of common point assignments online. Even safety violations earn three points, and a single case of reckless driving adds five points.
Speeding convictions can accrue points very quickly. Driving up to 10 MPH over the speed limit represents a three-point violation, but one instance of exceeding the speed limit by over 40 MPH adds 11 points to a driving record and results in immediate license suspension. As a former state trooper, speeding ticket attorney James Riotto knows the most appropriate defenses to use in court and works tirelessly to get charges dropped or reduced for defendants in Rochester and throughout Monroe and surrounding counties.
