Nassau County Tickets
As a Nassau County traffic lawyer, I have handled thousands of traffic tickets in Nassau County. The majority of tickets coming into the office are Nassau County speeding tickets, however I handle all Nassau County traffic tickets including passing a red light, unsafe lane change, failing to signal lane change,, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, HOV violations, passing a school bus, Nassau speeding tickets, Nassau trucking tickets, Nassau County DWI, and no insurance tickets.
If you have received a Nassau County speeding ticket it is best to retain a Nassau Traffic lawyer. As a Nassau Traffic lawyer I am familiar with the nuances of each court and will attempt to have the Nassau ticket dismissed. When unable to obtain an outright dismissal, the next best option is usually to plea bargain the traffic ticket to a lesser charge. This will usually result in a reduction of points placed on your license. NYS DMV points eventually end up on your driving abstract (driving record) leading to higher insurance premiums, possible license suspension, and for those with 6 or more points within 18 months, a driver assessment fee starting at $300
While Nassau County traffic tickets are handled in a number of courts throughout Nassau County, the majority of Nassau County tickets are sent to the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (NCTPVA) 16 Cooper Street, Hempstead NY. Misdemeanor tickets, such as driving with a suspended license, driving while intoxicated and revoked registration are usually returnable to the Nassau County First District Court, 99 Main Street, Hempstead, NY. Sometimes, however, some misdemeanor charges may be heard at the various Village and Justice Courts throughout Nassau County.
Recent Policy Changes at the Nassau County Traffic
and Parking Violations Agency, 16 Cooper Street, Hempstead
There recently have been a number of positive changes at the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency.
The policy at the Traffic and Parking Violations agency of refusing to reduce 8 and 11 point speeding tickets has been done away with. Even though I was always able to get the high speeding tickets reduced, I had to always schedule the case for trial, and then would obtain a reduction. Now I am able to get most 8 point speeds reduced to 3 point non speeding tickets. I have also been able to obtain substantial reductions on all the 11 point speeding tickets that I handle. Inasmuch as a conviction to an 11 point speeding ticket will result in an automatic suspension of your license, it is essential to get those speeding tickets reduced.
More good news - On many hand written tickets, there continues to be a failure to comply with my demand for supporting depositions, or the supporting depositions that I am being provided with are defective. This has resulted in a number of tickets being dismissed. It's important to note that in order to get a ticket dismissed at the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency on these grounds; the demand for a supporting deposition must be made on or before the return date listed on the bottom of the ticket. Also a motion must be filed in writing within the strict time limits as interpreted by that court. The key to getting these tickets dismissed is to retain an attorney who is familiar with the nuances of the court, and have the demand filed prior to the first court date.
Recent Additions to the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law
Tickets for using a cell phone without a hands free device (VTL 1225-c) have been raised to 3 points. They carry the same amount of points as failing to yield, passing a red light or crossing hazard markings.
A new law prohibits texting and sending emails using portable electronic devices such as smart phones (VTL 1225-d). This violation carries 3 points.
Another addition is a law that requires motorist to move over or slow down when passing stopped emergency vehicles on the side of the road ( VTL 1144-a). This new section of law known as the move over law carries 2 points upon conviction.
