How the Driver Violation Point System affects driving privileges

In sports, it can be advantageous for someone to accumulate as many points as possible. This is because under most sets of rules, the person with the most points at the end of the game wins. However, the opposite is true for New York drivers. The more points a person acquires on their driving record, the more consequences they may have to face.

Why is it sometimes illegal to make a U-turn in New York?

A U-turn is a specific type of driving maneuver. It happens when a driver changes the direction of their vehicle while staying on the same road. For example, a driver may be traveling west on a street and may be unable to make a left-hand turn into a parking lot; to access the lot, the driver may elect to make a U-turn to get their vehicle pointing east and capable of making a right-hand turn into the desired lot.

Understanding right of way on New York roads

Readers of this blog may have encountered this common situation. They are driving along and come to a stop sign, where they come to a full stop. However, they reach the intersection at the same time as another driver. Who should go first, and more importantly, who has the right of way?

Representation for individuals facing alleged traffic violations

The Fourth of July is a popular time of year for New York residents to pack up their vehicles and take road trips for vacations with family and friends. While most people enjoy relaxing outings with the people who mean the most to them, some individuals fall into the unpleasant experience of being stopped by law enforcement officials for driving infractions. Because of these alleged acts, drivers can receive tickets, citations and possibly be arrested for committing traffic violations.

What is a moving violation?

Readers of this blog may have received a ticket for a moving violation. Moving violations differ from non-moving violations for exactly the reason they sound: they occur when a vehicle is in motion. Unlike non-moving violations, which may be cited for illegal parking or illegal vehicle modifications, moving violations occur when drivers break the laws that govern safe driving practices.

Don't believe everything you see about traffic violations

People in New York may have seen an image on Facebook or another social media account that has gone viral, depicting a ticket for distracted driving in the state of New York in the amount of $850. Despite the fact that this image has been shared nearly 250,000 times, it serves as a prime example that you cannot believe everything you see.

New York Court of Appeals allows unlimited license plate scanning

Drivers cannot reasonably expect any privacy in their license plate numbers, according to New York's highest court. After considering the question for the first time, the court held that law enforcement may use license plate scanners at will -- even when no one is suspected of any crime.

Increase in State Police presence in NYC results in drastic increase of traffic tickets

Traffic tickets are presumably issued in order to ensure motorists follow traffic rules and regulations, to make the road safer for everybody. The issuance of traffic tickets is not always based purely and simply on these motives, though. Behind the scenes, there can be political, administrative, and even personal factors at play in the issuance of a traffic ticket.

Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero program puts pressure on authorities to target “reckless” drivers, P.2

In our last post, we began looking at Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero program and the intentional focus the program has put on reckless and negligent drivers. As we noted last time, the high vision of the program and the financial backing behind it puts pressure on law enforcement take an aggressive approach to the problem of traffic accidents.

Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero program puts pressure on authorities to target “reckless” drivers

Back in 2014, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced what is known as Vision Zero, a program created to reduce traffic fatalities. The program, which is partly based on a Swedish model, is aimed especially at addressing pedestrian deaths. The idea is that pedestrian deaths are better understood as the product of failed street design rather than mistakes in judgment.
