NYC Red Light Traffic Ticket

NYC Red Light Traffic Ticket

In New York, drivers are issued summonses for red lights by law enforcement officers and through traffic light cameras.  If caught on camera, you will receive a NOL—Notice of Liability and you can fight the charges within 30 days.  If you plead guilty, you will be required to pay a fine of $50 or more.  You will not receive points for these infractions and they will not be reported to your insurance company.  A red light ticket issued by a police officer is different.

If a police officer issues the traffic ticket, then your offense will be categorized as a traffic infraction and you will receive 3 points on your license as well as a likely increase in your insurance premium.  The cost of an NYC Red light ticket, issued by a police officer costs:

  • $190 for the first offense
  • $375 for the second offense (in an 18 month time period)
  • $940 for the third offense (in an 18 month time period)

If you receive a red light ticket from a police officer, fight it!  An experienced New York Red light lawyer can help lower points on your license or get rid of the charges altogether.  Call (212) 227-9008 immediately or email Michaelblock.Law@gmail.com for more information on how to fight your NYC Traffic Tickets.
