Being ticketed for a traffic violation – moving or otherwise – in the State of New York is not something anyone wants to have to go through. However, tickets are issued in New York by the hundreds each and every day, leaving good, honest and hard working motorists with hefty fines, as well as the threat of license suspension and even jail time in some cases.
The first instinct of many people who are ticketed in New York is to just pay the fine and move on, so they don’t have to deal with court dates or hire a traffic lawyer. This is almost never in the best interest of the motorist who was cited with the violation, because essentially, he or she is admitting guilt by sending back the ticket and paying the fine.
When you do this, you are setting yourself up for trouble in the future. The State of New York allows for only 11 points in an 18 month period before your license is suspended for a period of time. Many minor infractions are 3, 4, 5 and even 6 or 7 point tickets. A single ticket could get you close enough to having your license suspended that just one more could throw you over the limit. Having your driving privileges revoked for a period of time can make life exceptionally difficult, as you will no longer be able to legally drive to and from work, or even to and from the grocery store.
