Long Island Traffic Ticket Attorney
Paying the Ticket May be the Wrong Decision
Searching for a lawyer for a traffic ticket case in Long Island? Driving
in a heavily populated area requires great skill and attention just to
avoid the many hazards on the road. In addition to being a careful driver,
it is necessary to know hundreds or laws and regulations governing how
we drive. If you drive for a living, the likelihood of eventually violating
traffic law is higher. Points can accumulate very quickly.

Traffic Offense Demerit Points in New York
If you accumulate 11 demerit points over an 18 month period your driver's
license will automatically be suspended. It is easy to rack up points
for offenses such as;
- Speeding – 10 to 20 mph over the limit 4 points
- Failing to Yield 3 points
- Failure to dim headlights 2 points
- Inadequate brakes 4 points
- No licensed driver in towed vehicle 2 points
These are a few random samplings of the demerit system and there are dozens
of more ways to accumulate points. Driving without insurance carries no
demerit points. However, pleading guilty to this offense will gain an
automatic revocation of your driver's license for one year.

Simply pleading guilty to traffic offenses and paying the fines may be
a simple fix but going forward, you will pay more for insurance and possibly
jeopardize your qualification to drive commercially. As points are added
to your license, eventually you lose the legal right to operate a vehicle.
