5 Point Cell Phone Ticket Received in East Harlem Reduced to 0 Points

cellphone ticket may be issued regardless of how the driver was using the device.  The law defines “using” as holding your cellphone while talking, taking pictures, texting, or simply viewing the device.  So if you are viewing the device as a GPS, you are in violation.

In addition, cellphone tickets rack up as much as 5 points.  Extra points on your license can increase the price of your insurance.  3 cellphone tickets could result in the suspension of your license.

The cost of cellphone tickets can range between $50 to $400 depending on the gravity and frequency of the offense. Aside from the immediate cost of the ticket, points on your license could cause insurance premiums to increase significantly.

When you receive the cellphone ticket, do not discuss it with the police officer.   Anything you say can, and WILL be used against you in court. Officers take notes on any comments you make which can later harm you while disputing your traffic ticket.

3 Point Failure to Obey to a Stop Sign Ticket in Merrick, Nassau County Reduced to 0 points.

VTL 1172a states that except when directed to proceed by a police officer, every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign shall stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, then shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection. Or in the event that there is no crosswalk, at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of the approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering the intersection.

If you receive a summons for Failing to Stop at a Stop sign, you would be facing a fine. For first time offenders, you would be fined $150 and have to pay an $88 surcharge. You would also receive 3 points on your license and in rare circumstances; you could face up to 15 days in jail.
