New Yorkers know all too well that area law enforcement have increased vigilance against speeding and other actions believed to be hazards to public safety. Traffic violations can result in high fines, increases in insurance costs and even state surcharges. For some people, the ability to fight a traffic ticket is difficult and without the proper help, they may end up with their driver’s license suspended if they do not receive the right help.
As the New Year is now well underway, various states are collecting and reviewing statistics from the prior year. New York is no different and when it comes to traffic violations, the state is highly interested to see the trends from year to year about different types of offenses. Often such information is utilized by law enforcement to develop programs to curb certain activities. One example may be the slow zones that are now seen in different parts of New York, one effort designed to reduce speeding in the city.
Every day, there are drivers in New York City, and other cities all across the U.S., who are issued tickets by law enforcement officers. Most of the time, motorists accept the ticket and the consequences that come with it, but sometimes, however, a driver may choose to fight a traffic ticket.
