The client stated that they were avoiding a large pot hole when the police officer issued the ticket. Be aware of poor road conditions while driving during the winter! Anticipate potholes and posted speed changes. Failure to signal lane change tickets carry two points in New York State. You may receive one of these tickets if you do not signal properly before changing lanes. These tickets are given to dissuade drivers from moving erratically, and to encourage drivers to signal their intentions on the road. During the winter months, be aware of the road conditions as you travel.  Watch other vehicles to see if they are avoiding hazards and prepare to react to them.  Be careful, drive safe and, if you do get a traffic ticket, call me at the Law Office of Michael Block P.C. for a free consultation 212-227-9008
