  • Does the State of New York have a similar statute as New Jersey as it relates to unsafe driving to avoid points on license.

    If so what is the statue reference number.

    Scott’s Answer

    "Unsafe driving to avoid points". Not really sure what you mean by that so it's hard to say.

  • Alcohol in car with underage driver. do we need a lawyer

    stopped in car for no lights. officer saw unopened beer in the back floor board. do we need a lawyer for court? no prior stops.

    Scott’s Answer

    Officer "saw" something but you don't mention what if anything you were charged with. Hard to assess the need for an attorney just based on this information. It's likely you should consult with a local attorney if the charges were anything above and beyond a simple equipment (no lights) type of violation.

  • Failure to yield after stopping at a stop sign

    I just pulled up to a stop sign came to a complete stop looked both ways, the cars were far enough to cross it was a busy time of the day and there was 4 lanes of traffic, 2 heading right and 2 heading left. I have to cross 2 lanes heading left, s...

    It's a little hard to follow but if you had a stop sign and the other driver didn't it may be difficult for someone to conclude it was the other driver's fault. Sometimes it can be the other driver's fault (they pull out suddenly from a parked position or are waiting to turn and change their mind and head a different direction) but still the burden on the person who had the stop sign is hard to overcome.

    Scott’s Answer

    You were accused of doing something. You say you didn't do it. Happens every day--that is what court is for. Fight it.

  • How can I get my drivers license back for back child support even though I have had my children for the past 3 years?

    I cannot get a job without my license and do not have money for legal representation.

    Scott’s Answer

    Generally, if your license was suspended for failure to pay something (an old ticket, judgement, child support) you need to pay it to clear yourself with the DMV. If you can't pay, perhaps there's a way to satisfy DMV that the issue has been taken care of (new child support arrangement, for ex). If you are representing yourself, your best bet is to contact DMV directly and start researching some options.

  • How and when do I pay traffic ticket when I have a court date?

    I have a court date tomorrow for no insurance and no seat belt. When do I pay the fines? Do I have to pay them tomorrow, or will I be given a chance to turn in a payment later?

    Scott’s Answer

    Agreed that it's rare for any court to make people who are otherwise timely with the matter pay fines the same day.
