    This ticket carries 6 points, roughly a $200 fine, a $300 Driver Assessment Fee and could lead to an insurance hike. Therefore you should plead not guilty and fight this speeding ticket. Feel free to call me if you have any further questions.

    When you go to court, you can ask the judge for a copy. More importantly, you should re-schedule this case as long as possible. This court is changing procedures, locations and personnel in April, 2013 and the new court will be much better for you to obtain a favorable result.

    You can re-schedule the first time online (the day before the hearing). Thereafter, you can re-scheudle in person. You should be able to get 1 or 2 more adjournments beyond the original one. Keep in mind that the Court will impose a $40 bond for your second (or third) adjournment. This bond is refunded if you win or applied towards the fine if you lose. The only way you can lose with a bond is if you fail to appear as scheduled. Because this court is changing how it handles cases in April...

    You need a NY traffic lawyer. Driving when you know know or should know that you are suspended is a misdemeanor in New York. You or your traffic lawyer needs to clear the underlying suspension. If you do, your criminal case will likely be reduced to a non-criminal violation.

    Yes, a traffic ticket while operating a motorcycle will affect your motorcycle license and your regular driving privileges. Further, your speeding ticket is very serious. Speeding 102/55 is an 11-point ticket, carries roughly a $350 fine, a $675 Driver Assessment Fee, a likely insurance hike, a possible suspension and even jail time (up to 15 days). You should definitely consult with an experienced NY traffic ticket lawyer on this one.

    This violation carries 2 points and roughly a $150 fine. The points will last for 18 months from the date of offense for DMV purposes and 36 months from the date of conviction for insurance purposes. How you or your traffic lawyer fight it depends on the unique facts of your case.

    When you are newly-issued a license, you are on probation for the first six months. During this time, you are not allowed to speeding and, if you are convicted of this charge, your license will be taken away. Therefore, you need to plead not guilty and fight this ticket. In New York City, there is no plea bargaining for traffic tickets. Rather, it is generally "all or nothing". Therefore, I recommend that you consult with (if not hire) a New York traffic ticket lawyer to maximize your...

    As far as I can tell, the answer is "no". Section 1.6.3. listed the "serious violations" relating to CDL license holders at http://www.dmv.ny.gov/broch/cdl/cdl10sec01.pdf. On October 28, 2013, the following changes to the mobile phone/portable electronic device use law for Commercial Drivers (CDL) took effect: A motor carrier must not allow or require their drivers to use mobile phones/portable electronic devices while driving. A mobile telephone used by a person operating a...
