If you are accused of a traffic offense in New York, you want to ensure that you get the right legal help to respond to your ticket. This is especially important for people who were visiting the state when they were cited.
If you do not live locally, you may be tempted to just pay the ticket rather than returning to the state to fight it. Unfortunately, despite what many people believe, a traffic ticket in New York can follow you home and affect your driving rights in the state where you live. And, if you don’t just get a ticket but are actually arrested for a traffic crime like drunk driving, the arrest in New York could also create major legal trouble for you back home.
NYC Traffic Lawyers can help you to understand your options if you get a ticket as an out-of-state driver. Our legal team knows the ins-and-outs of New York’s traffic laws and we also understand how many other neighboring states will treat your traffic offense.
You should give us a call as soon as you can after you’re cited for a moving violation or arrested for a traffic offense so a NY traffic attorney can help you to begin crafting a strategic response to the accusations that have been made against you.
If you are accused of a traffic offense in a state you don’t live in, you cannot just ignore the accusations. You’ll either have to pay the fine, negotiate a plea deal, or come back to the state to deal with accusations in court. The options available to you and the best course of action will vary based on the nature of the traffic offense.
When you are arrested for drunk driving or another misdemeanor or felony offense, your home state will be notified in every case and the conviction will be on your criminal record at home. Your license in your home state likely will also be suspended, just as it would have been if you’d gotten a DUI where you lived.
Your home state will also be notified of other moving violations, even less serious ones. State laws vary regarding when notification of a moving violation is provided and regarding whether your home state will point points on your license for moving violations in other jurisdictions. An attorney can explain the specifics of what would happen in the state you live in if you’re found guilty of a traffic offense in New York.
You don’t have roll over, pay the citation and be done. Over-eager traffic enforcement intermingles with errors every day. Always be ready to fight back. The odds are in your favor when you work with NY Traffic Firm.
