Traffic Offenses Powerful Representation With Proven Results

White Plains Traffic Defense Lawyer

Highly Experienced Legal Help in Traffic & Criminal Courts in Westchester County

Many traffic offenses are called violations resulting in fines and potential demerit points added to your driving record. In the worst cases, however, a traffic offense can become a criminal matter meaning you will need to proceed through the criminal courts with all that that entails. Either way, you have the legal right to defend yourself in your day at court, whether it is traffic court or criminal court. The potential penalties are much more serious in criminal court which means working with an experienced attorney is always the best action to take.

At The Law Office of Anthony Strazza, we are here to represent you in any traffic offense in the local courts. Our White Plains traffic attorney brings 17 years of legal experience to your case, including years spent as a Bronx prosecutor. Thus, we are extremely familiar with how the local courts and judges operate and with the New York laws they enforce. If you wish to keep your driving record or criminal record clean, we advise you to get an honest evaluation of your situation, what your chances are for prevailing in court, and how best we can serve you.

New York Traffic Tickets

Most traffic tickets are violations that result in fines which, when paid according to the instructions on your ticket, will close your case. However, paying your fine is an admission of guilt. If you wish to contest it, you will need to go to traffic court and present your side of the story along with the evidence in your favor. Making a case before a judge is best done by a legal professional who thoroughly understands the process and is experienced in cross-examination and putting forth convincing arguments on your behalf.

If you fail to contest your ticket, it will wind up costing you demerit points added to your record and the likelihood of increased auto insurance premiums. If you accumulate 11 points within an 18-month time period, you will face an automatic license suspension. Examples of demerit points include three points for driving one to 10 miles over the posted limit, four points for following too closely, and five points for texting while driving.

Criminal Traffic Crimes

Criminal traffic violations can end in convictions that may impose jail time, heavy fines, licenses suspensions, and a permanent criminal record.

These can include:

  • Reckless driving

  • Driving while intoxicated from alcohol and/or drugs

  • Driving on a suspended or revoked license

  • Hit and run (leaving the scene of an accident)

  • Causing bodily injury or death in a traffic accident

  • Fleeing law enforcement in your vehicle

  • Equipment and other violations of laws pertaining to commercial drivers and their vehicles

For example, you could be charged with a hit and run if you accidentally hit another car in a parking lot and drive away without leaving a note identifying yourself and what happened. Even in a case where you left the scene of minor property damage, you could risk jail time. In cases of leaving the scene where someone has been seriously injured, you could be facing up to four years in prison and fines ranging from $1,000 up to $5,000.
