Study: New York City has some of the worst commutes in the nation

In vehicle traffic law news, INRIX -- a Washington-based software company that makes traffic/driver apps for mobile phones -- made some rather interesting findings concerning overall traffic patterns here in the U.S. in a study released just last month. In fact, it also ranked the ten worst stretches of highway in the U.S. for daily commutes and the ten cities with the worst overall commutes.

NYC prosecutor arrested after cutting off unmarked police car

Prosecutors are used to enforcing the law. Now, for one Brooklyn prosecutor, the tables are turned, and he is the one being prosecuted for allegedly violating not only motor vehicle traffic laws, but also laws against resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and attempted assault of a police officer. It all started on a Saturday evening earlier this month, when the prosecutor was driving at a high speed in Queens, changing lanes without signaling on the Whitestone Expressway. According to court papers, he was driving so erratically that other cars on the road had to swerve to avoid hitting him. Unfortunately for him, one of the cars he cut off was an unmarked police car with four on-duty NYPD narcotics officers inside.

What state is most likely to issue speeding tickets?

If you and your family are planning to take advantage of lower gas prices by hitting the road to visit family or see some of our nation's many landmarks, you may want to take a look at a recently published report outlining the states and cities where law enforcement officials are most likely to issue a speeding ticket. Doing so may end up saving you both time and money.

Father receives pair of tickets after saving son's life

A father in New Jersey may have saved his 5-year-old son's life. But that didn't stop him from being cited for a traffic violation. According to Fox News, the man took his young son to the banks of a New Jersey river to feed the ducks. But when the man briefly stopped his jeep before settling on a parking spot, the 5-year-old boy leapt from the vehicle and ran toward a ledge that towered 35 feet above the river. The man, fearing that his son might run off this ledge, also jumped out of his vehicle and caught his son just feet from the ledge.

Study ranks the traffic violations most likely to increase your insurance rates

If you've ever been pulled over by a law enforcement official for an alleged traffic violation, you are likely very familiar with the seemingly endless amount of time it takes for the officer or trooper to process the ticket. In fact, as you waited patiently for them to return your license and hand you the ticket, you probably thought about how much the ticket would cost and how it would affect your insurance rates.

New Jersey gets tough on jaywalkers

A surprisingly high percentage of traffic accidents involve pedestrians. In neighboring New Jersey for example, 20 percent of all traffic fatalities in 2010 involved pedestrians, and 60 percent of the pedestrians who were killed were not killed by speeding cars but rather by jaywalking. Now Fort Lee, the New Jersey borough adjacent to the George Washington Bridge, is cracking down on jaywalkers in an attempt to increase public safety.

Is Niagara Falls PD walking a thin line with spectators over parking tickets?

On June 15, history will be made as tightrope walker Nik Wallenda will attempt to cross Niagara Falls from the U.S. side to the Canadian side. In fact, the excitement over the event is growing to such an extent that people are lining up just to watch Wallenda practice in the parking lot of a casino in Niagara Falls, New York. Unfortunately for them, local police are also on the scene handing out traffic violations to those who are failing to comply with the city's parking ordinances.

Police union publicly criticizes NYPD for traffic ticket agenda

This past Monday, you may have encountered a somewhat surprising advertisement in the New York Daily News from the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association -- the city's police officers union -- criticizing Police Commissioner Ray Kelly for the department's stance on traffic violations.

NYPD data breaks down ticket patterns in 2012

If your travels take you to different parts of the city, you may feel as if you are more likely to get a certain type of traffic violation in one neighborhood than you are in another. Interestingly, recently released data from the New York Police Department sheds some light on this topic, revealing the most common citations issued in New York City neighborhoods thus far in 2012.
