Steven Ginsberg, traffic attorney for moving violations & reckless driving in Rockland County, Westchester, Orange & NYS

Moving violations range from traffic tickets with 0- 2 points to high speeds carrying up to 11 points and then to crimes such as reckless driving or leaving the scene of an accident where someone has been seriously injured, resulting in penalties including serving jail time, loss of license and even receiving a criminal record. If you have been ticketed for a misdemeanor, you should strongly consider hiring an attorney, who can guide you through an even more unfamiliar process and help protect your rights. Also, If you have over 6 points on your license (accrued during an 18 month period) you will automatically receive a $100 (or more) per year assessment for 3 years from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Additionally, moving violations can cause your auto insurance to significantly increase and there can be other surprises, such as a life insurance policy becoming more costly to purchase.  If you have a commercial license and drive a truck, bus, taxi or limousine, a moving violation conviction may place your livelihood at risk.
