Fighting A Traffic Violation
Some people use their cars every single day, and because of this, traffic violations are pretty common. While they can range from minor offenses to serious charges, you are always allowed to contest them. The Law Office of Mary Jane Murphy has helped clients throughout New York fight traffic violations. No matter how big or how small, we can help.
What Is Considered A Violation?
There are a wide variety of traffic violations. From speeding to driving a car with burned-out headlight, to a cell phone ticket or move over violation, you have rights. Tickets are described in one of two ways: moving violations and non-moving violations. Understandably, a moving violation occurs when a law is violated when a car is in motion. This includes speeding, operating a motor vehicle while using a cell phone, or failing to exercise due care for an emergency vehicle. A non-moving violation typically deals with parking, such as parking in front of a fire hydrant or an expired meter but can also be an equipment violation.
Most offenses are called infractions, which means you’d likely have to pay a fine. More serious offenses are considered misdemeanors or even felonies. These crimes, such as DWI, DWAI and Aggravated Unlicensed Operation may include jail time or suspension/revocation of your driving privileges, depending on the case. You need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who can look at your case objectively and honestly. We are here to fight for your rights or negotiate for a lesser settlement. We always work toward the best possible result.
