State Supreme Court emerges as battleground over bike lane ticket

As many people know all too well, the New York Police Department (NYPD) is more than willing to issue tickets for traffic violations to unwitting motorists and bicyclists. While many of these tickets are likely legitimate and follow the letter of the law, others are not. In fact, recent reports indicate that bicyclists here in the Big Apple are regularly being ticketed for a bicycle maneuver that many people believe is technically not illegal.

Investigation shows some motorists going to new extreme to avoid tickets

Many motorists here in New York City are very familiar with the steep fines associated with certain types of traffic violations. As such, they will often look for any advantage they can get to help reduce the likelihood that they will have to dole out hundreds of dollars to government officials in the event they make a simple mistake.

Can't understand the parking sign? There's an app for that ...

If you live in New York City and own a car then you have more than likely taken part in the ritual of trying to decipher some of the signs outlining the city's arcane parking regulations.

City Council votes to terminate Sanitation Department stickers

Here in New York City, motorists are accustomed to the very real possibility that they can be issued a citation for any number of traffic violations on any given day, including speeding, parking in a restricted area, or driving with expired license tabs.

For many motorists, red-light traffic cameras are the bane of their existence, recording and issuing extremely costly traffic violations for a momentary lapse in judgment. In fact, motorists aren't the only ones who have taken issue with red-light traffic cameras. Both highway safety advocates and other privately funded groups have disputed the efficacy of the cameras in terms of preventing accidents.

City officials tell taxi drivers to lay off their horns

From busy streets and pushy pedestrians to noisy neighbors and crowded subways, there are certain realities of big city life that most New Yorkers simply accept as being unavoidable. Interestingly, there is one such "reality" of New York living that city officials are now attempting to eliminate altogether through a very unlikely mechanism: a traffic violation.

NFL star running back gets second ticket for not wearing seat belt

Report: Motorists should keep an eye out for deer during the autumn

Here in New York, many people set aside time during the autumn months to drive to their cabins or see the vivid fall colors in other states. However, according to a recently released report, these motorists should be on the lookout for more than just highway patrol officers eager to hand out traffic violations. They should be on the lookout for deer.

New York City police ramp up enforcement of texting ban

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has increased the number of texting-while-driving tickets it has been issuing recently. Within the first eight months of this year, NYPD has already issued 1,857 tickets, up from the 1,631 tickets it gave out in all of 2010. This 14 percent increase is partially due to a change in the texting-while-driving ban.
