Individuals Charged with Traffic Violations, Misdemeanors and Felonies will Benefit from Legal Representation
Let legal experience minimize your risks
The Law Office of Gordon B. Fine defends individuals charged with traffic violations in the communities of Yorktown Heights, White Plains, Peekskill, Carmel and the surrounding communities. As a Town Prosecutor, Gordon Fine knows what it takes to wage a successful defense battle. As a criminal defense attorney, he applies that knowledge and more than 25 years experience to vigorously represent traffic violation clients.
Traffic violations consist of moving violations and criminal violations. Moving violations include:
If convicted of any of these, you receive points against your license, which may cause your insurance premium to increase. Ignoring a ticket and failing to pay a fine result in suspension of your driver’s license. If you receive three speeding convictions within an 18-month period, you will lose your license. You will also lose your license if you receive 11 points.
Penalties for common infractions include:
|Speeding 1 to 10 mph over the limit||3 points|
|Speeding 11 to 20 mph over the limit||4 points|
|Speeding 21 to 30 mph over the limit||6 points|
|Speeding 31 to 40 mph over the limit||8 points|
|Speeding more than 40 mph over the limit||11 points|
|Reckless driving||5 points|
|Failing to stop for a school bus||5 points|
|Following too closely (tailgating)||4 points|
|Failing to yield right of way||3 points|
|Violation involving traffic signal, stop sign or yield sign||3 points|
|Improper passing/unsafe lane change||3 points|
|Leaving the scene of an accident with property damage or injury to an animal||3 points|
|Safety restraint (person under 16)||3 points|
|Driving on shoulder||2 points|
|Obstructing intersection||2 points|
|Disobeying a traffic control device||2 points|
Defensive driver course
You may reduce four points on your license by taking a defensive driving course. That is a six-hour course, given in various locations, as well as on-line. It will not only reduce your points; it will reduce your insurance premium. If you have received a ticket that may result in points being placed on your license, do not take the six-hour course until after the points are actually placed on your record. Taking the course ahead of time will not reduce the points from that offense.
