  • Received a ticket yesterday coded 1110-AH. What is the difference between 1110-A & 1110-AH

    Hello, yesterday i received a ticket for driving in the carpool lane alone. 1110-AH. I am wondering if the ticket carries any points? I can only find information online for 1110-A not 1110-AH. Can anyone explain the difference between 1110-A & 111...

    It is a violation that carries points. H simply alerts the traffic agency or court that it was an HOV violation as they take those cases more seriously. Hire an attorney. The cost is worth the potential reduction or elimination of points. Good Luck,

    If you have not had a chance to hire local counsel, appear and ask the judge for more time. If you have time, make appointment(s) to meet attorney's to go over the issues and agree on a fee. Good Luck!

  • What is the penalty for assault in third degree I

    I received a desk appearance ticket no bail and I do not have a record

    Joseph’s Answer

    Technically, the maximum is 1 year in jail. Or a combination of 60 days and 3 years probation. However, with no prior record, that should not happen. Consult with a local attorney who can go over your options after hearing the facts. Good Luck!

  • I received a ticket for an HOV lane violation. Disposition Law/Section/Subsection: "1110AH"

    What is the "H" in "1110AH"? I have looked at the text of the law. I see section A, but no, what I would assume to be, subsection H. This occurred in West Hempstead. On Good Friday/Passover Friday. I crept into the lane, during bumper t...

    Joseph’s Answer

    The H is not an error. I suspect it's there to indicate HOV to show the circumstances of the ticket. A good local attorney should be able to get it reduced, potentially to NO points. Good Luck!

    If you mean so far you have 2 mIsdemeanors from this case, an ACOD is not out of the question. You should speak to your parents and hire an attorney.

    In the Suffolk County TVB, hiring an attorney leads to the best resolution. It will cost you more overall but it will help you reduced the points if not avoid them all together. Hire a good traffic attorney.

    Joseph’s Answer

    The short answer is that having an attorney is always best. While you won't get a "don't do it again", you may receive an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal (ACOD or ACD depending on where you are) which means the case is adjourned for 6 months and will be dismissed on the 6 month period provided you stay out of trouble. This type of plea does not stay on your record, does not include an admission of guilty and carries minimal penalty. Contact a local attorney to go over the facts of your case and all your options. Good Luck!
