A single speeding ticket or other driving infraction may not seem like a serious concern. However, it is important to know the full implications and consider what will happen if you are unfortunate enough to receive more tickets down the line.
If your standard driver's license is essential for you as a commuter, if your commercial driver's license (CDL) is necessary for your livelihood, or you are concerned about the time and hassle involved with a court appearance, we urge you to contact us now at Katz Law Offices. We are a proven resource for New Yorkers in all walks of life, taxi and limousine drivers, truck drivers and out-state residents ticketed while traveling in New York.
Facing Driver's License Suspension? How Will Inability to Drive Affect You?
Most people are aware of the point system used by the New York DMV, but do not have a clear sense of the three ways common traffic violations can lead to driver's license suspension. These are:
- Getting three or more speeding tickets within an 18-month period
- Accumulating 11 or more points within an 18-month period
- Having a judge, at his or her sole discretion, determine that you pose a safety risk or threat due to your alleged dangerous driving behavior
Standards are even more strict for commercial drivers, including taxi and limousine drivers, and a DWI, DWAI or other such offense absolutely calls for counsel and representation by an experienced lawyer you can trust.
