New York residents should take their tickets seriously. Whether they are incurred for allegedly driving too fast, driving while distracted, or driving in violation of local traffic laws, tickets can add up and mean big trouble for individuals who depend on the use of their drivers licenses. The more tickets and points a driver accumulates, the longer they may lose their driving privileges.
There are a number of different driving infractions that New Yorkers can be charged with. While these infractions can be classified into different types of actions, one of the most basic groupings that vehicle-based violations can take is either a moving violation or a nonmoving violation. This post will discuss the basic difference between these, but readers should seek the advice of their own attorney when it comes to preparing their traffic violation defenses.
