The New York State Vehicle & Traffic Law is constantly changing. Recent amendments include the imposition of 3 points for the traffic infraction of driving while using a cell phone without a hands free device, or to text and drive.
Westchester courts, Including the Rye Town Court located in Port Chester New York, can be harsh on drivers depending on what they are charged with. There are even some Judges who will not reduce speeding tickets.
Our Port Chester Traffic Ticket Lawyers will help you navigate your matter to help you get the best possible results.
In 2011, New York State instituted the “Move Over Act”, which requires drivers to reduce their speed and to move over one lane if it can be done safely, when they observe an emergency vehicle pulled over to the side of the road. If you are not able to safely pull over you may have a defense if ticketed under the “Move Over Act” since it is also a traffic infraction to make an unsafe lane. A violation of the “Move Over Act” is a three point infraction.

NEW YORK STATE POINT ASSESSMENT SYSTEM
The point system is one way that the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may suspend or revoke a driver license. In addition to the point system, there are other mandatory suspensions or revocations as discussed in more detail at our DWI & DUI License Center. If you accumulate three convictions for speeding within 18 months your license will be revoked by the New York State DMV.
In New York State, 11 points on your driver’s license will result in your driver’s license being suspended. Moreover, if you are assessed 6 or more points on your driver’s license in an 18 month period, you will be required to pay a Driver’s Responsibility Assessment, which is a civil penalty imposed by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. Failure to pay the assessment will result in your driver’s license, learner’s permit or driving privileges being automatically suspended.
The loss of the ability to drive can be life altering and may affect your personal life and your employment. We will work help you keep your license, and to prevent your insurance rates from skyrocketing.
