Gridlock

A gridlock alert is in effect for NYC and will probably remain in effect until New Year’s Day. What does this mean to drivers who must travel in New York during this time?

Traffic will be heavily congested during the next few weeks. The annual Christmas tree lighting festivities, as well as Holliday Tourists will contribute to Gridlock.

New York State Law basically mandates that you cannot enter an intersection unless there is sufficient space to accommodate your vehicle on the other side of the intersection. If you get caught blocking the box, you may be issued a ticket for Spillback. The summons carries two points and a fine.

If you receive a summons for Spillback or Obstructing an Intersection or any other Moving Violation call us at 212-227-9008

Buying a Used Car? Not so Fast

Buying a used car is typically a fast and cheap way to purchase a car at an affordable price that has all of the proper functions of a brand new car. However, Buying a used car is not as convenient as we may think.

At many used car lots, safety flaws in the used cars run unattended. There is no federal requirement for sellers of used cars to fix any problem related to safety-recalls, or even tell customers of the recalls. New car salesmen must disclose recall information however.Car auctions are also one of the most unregulated fields of the car buying industry. These auctions are basically places where some dealers actually can sell defective or damaged or unsafe vehicles to other dealers who are willing to sell them to the public.

 This is unacceptable. These used cars are eluding recall safeguards, which puts motorists, and pedestrians alike, in serious danger.
Whether you are driving a used car or a new car, remember to drive safely. If you find yourself in a situation where you are pulled over for running a red light, running a stop sign, speeding, or any other moving violation, we can help. Call us at 212-227-9008.
