Driver has license suspended after fatal New York City accident

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. In some cases, it can be difficult for police to determine what exactly happened because those who were involved in the accident may not be completely honest about what was going on at the time of the incident.

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. Often when drivers are accused of committing traffic violations, they are issued tickets. Tickets typically lead to court fees and fines. 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.

Man faces charges for excessive speed on New York highway

Speed limits and other traffic laws are put into place to maintain order and safety on the nation's roadways. Consequences for breaking those laws have been established to encourage motorists to drive with care. Often, those penalties can become even more severe when there is an extreme or repeated traffic violation allegation.

Speeding charge just the tip of the iceberg for one driver

Speeding does not seem like that big of a deal to many drivers. At one time or another, almost all motorists have driven faster than legally allowed. New York and other individual states are responsible for making and enforcing their own traffic laws. Speeding may seem like a minor offense to some, but many times additional charges and consequences come with a speeding charge.

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.

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor traffic tickets? USPS caught in citation scandal

The United States Postal Service has been in the news off and on over the last year due to its proposed budget cuts and the possibility of eliminating mail delivery on Saturdays. However, the federal agency really grabbed headlines last month after claiming that its employees were somehow immune from traffic violations.

Is a class action lawsuit against N.J. red light cameras drawing closer to an end?

Thanks to the technological advancements of the last decade, it's virtually impossible to go anywhere in public without potentially being recorded by a sophisticated surveillance system or even a cell phone camera. As evidenced by the popularity of reality shows, internet news sites and viral videos, many people might not actually mind this as much as you might think. However, there is still one forum on which no one wants to be recorded under any circumstances: red light cameras.

Survey examines the impact of traffic tickets on insurance premiums

We are all very familiar with the potential consequences of traffic violations: large fines, points against your license and, of course, increased insurance premiums. Interestingly, the online comparison site InsuranceQuotes.com recently performed a survey designed to determine whether insurance premiums do indeed go up after the issuance of traffic tickets.

What are the most dangerous roads for pedestrians in the tri-state area?
