New York Jets player arrested for unresolved traffic tickets

In New York, as well as other states throughout the U.S., law enforcement officers regularly issue traffic tickets to motorists who are observed violating the traffic laws. While the consequences of these tickets can be as lenient as fines or points on a driver’s license, these summonses often require some sort of action on the part of the motorist. Not following through with resolving even the smallest New York traffic law violation can result in much more serious legal issues down the road.

Ambulance driver cited for traffic violations in fatal accident

People in New York City typically think of ambulance drivers as lifesavers, not as people who cause deaths. When transporting patients, however, emergency responders are just as prone to accidents as other motorists. Since ambulance drivers often have to have to drive faster than the posted limits and move in and out of traffic in order to get from the scene of an incident back to the hospital to save a patient's life, they can be dangerous to the other drivers on the road if they are not paying close attention to the other vehicles around them.

Most readers in New York are aware that states create and enforce traffic law in an effort to maintain order and safety on the roads. When drivers are found to have violated New York traffic law, there are a number of different consequences, including license suspensions, fines, points, and in some cases, jail sentences.

Following motor vehicle accidents in New York City, as well as in other cities throughout the U.S., law enforcement officers conduct accident investigations to determine what caused the collision to occur and who, if anyone, was at fault for the accident.

New York driver arrested, accused of traffic violations

New York and other states are responsible for creating and enforcing their own traffic laws. Individual states also have their own penalties and repercussions for violating those laws.

In some cases, however, drivers may be placed under arrest and face much more serious consequences when they are accused of breaking traffic law.

New York traffic laws apply to everyone, even officers

No one is happy to see that little slip of paper under their windshield wiper indicating they have been issued a parking ticket. Although receiving a ticket can be an inconvenience, acting out or further bending of the traffic laws will most likely only ensure that you face additional, and possibly more severe, consequences. Regardless of if you are in New York City, or some other locale in the U.S., traffic laws are enforced for everyone, whether you are a doctor, a housewife or a law enforcement officer. These laws are not meant to aggravate or annoy motorists, but rather to ensure the safety of the roads and highways.

New York to increase traffic safety with harsher penalties

Traffic related laws are developed and enacted in order to maintain order and safety on the nation's roadways. For some drivers, one traffic violation is enough to prevent them from breaking the laws of the road again. Other drivers, however, may find themselves with multiple traffic violations. In order to cut back on repeat offenses, some states, such as New York, are creating new legislation that would create stricter consequences.
