    At the very least, you should have a consultation with a NY traffic ticket lawyer. Driving when you know (or should know) that your license is suspended is called Aggravated Unlicensed and is a misdemeanor in New York. If you clear up the underlying the suspensions, our experience in court is that you can likely avoid getting a criminal record. I have posted a link below that will provide you with more helpful information about suspended license issues. Matthew Weiss

  3. Speed trap "ticket quota" summons. Searchlight Nevada.

    Sounds like a pretty clear mistake and grounds for dismissal. However, keep in mind (before you spend considerable time and effort fighting this ticket), a conviction to a Nevada speeding ticket will NOT result in points being added to your New York license. Points to no transfer from Nevada to New York. You do need to answer the ticket, however, because a Nevada suspension will be honored in New York State.

    This is a 6-point ticket that carries roughly a $200 fine plus a $300 Driver Assessment Fee. It can also adversely affect your insurance rates. We, therefore, recommend that you plead not guilty and fight this ticket. If you do, you likely can save NY points, the $300 Driver Assessment Fee and avoid an insurance rate increase (assuming you have an otherwise clean record).

    It sounds like you had an old suspension on your record. You can get this information by running your DMV record. We regularly run records of our clients who have suspensions.

    Those defects are not enough to beat this ticket, in my opinion. However, there are other ways to obtain a favorable result. A 80/55 is an 6-point ticket that carries roughly a $200 fine plus a $300 Driver Assessment Fee. It can also adversely affect your insurance rates. We, therefore, recommend that you plead not guilty and fight this ticket.

    Unlike a parking ticket, this error does not render your ticket fatally defective. There may be other ways to fight this ticket, however.

    If you are right, then you have an excellent defense to this ticket. Go take multiple photos of the intersection ASAP from various vantage points. This will be your best evidence that there were no signs on the in question. Good luck.
