Caught in a Tangle of Traffic Tickets? Let Us Untie the Knots.

At the Law Office of Craig Bondy, we understand that a traffic ticket is more than just a minor inconvenience—it can lead to points on your license, hefty fines, increased insurance rates, and even the loss of driving privileges. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing New Yorkers with robust defense services for all types of traffic violations.

Is It Worth It to Fight a Traffic Ticket in NYC?

Fighting a traffic ticket in New York City can often be worth the effort, especially considering the potential consequences of simply accepting the ticket and pleading guilty. Here are several reasons why it might be beneficial to contest a traffic ticket:

Insurance Rates

Convictions for traffic violations can lead to increased auto insurance premiums. By fighting a ticket and potentially having it reduced or dismissed, you may avoid these additional costs.

Points on Your License

New York State uses a point system, and convictions for traffic violations can add points to your driving record. Accumulating too many points can lead to the suspension of your driver’s license.

Fines and Surcharges

The fines associated with traffic tickets can be substantial, and there may also be additional surcharges. Fighting the ticket may result in lower fines or the possibility of attending a driving course instead of paying a fine.


If your job requires a clean driving record, a traffic violation could jeopardize your employment or future job opportunities, particularly if you hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL).

Driving Privileges

For serious offenses or multiple violations, you may be at risk of having your driving privileges suspended or revoked. Contesting the ticket gives you a chance to defend your right to drive.

Legal Inaccuracies

There may be errors or inconsistencies in the way the ticket was issued or in the evidence against you. A careful legal review could reveal a valid defense to challenge the ticket.

Mitigating Circumstances

There might be extenuating circumstances that led to the violation, which a court may consider, potentially leading to a dismissal or reduction of the charges.

Trial Outcomes

Sometimes, the officer who issued the ticket may not appear in court, which could result in the ticket being dismissed.


An experienced traffic ticket lawyer may be able to negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce the charges to a less serious offense with fewer penalties.

Peace of Mind

Knowing that you have taken action to protect your rights and interests can provide reassurance, regardless of the outcome.

Before deciding to fight a traffic ticket, it’s advisable to consult with a lawyer who has experience in traffic law. They can provide guidance based on the specifics of your case, the evidence against you, and the likelihood of a favorable outcome.

What should I do if I receive a traffic ticket in New York City?

It’s important to respond to a traffic ticket promptly. You have the option to plead guilty and pay the fine, or plead not guilty and contest the ticket. If you’re considering fighting the ticket, consulting with a traffic ticket lawyer can help you understand your options and the potential consequences.

Can a traffic ticket lawyer really help me?

Yes, a traffic ticket lawyer is familiar with the traffic laws in New York and the procedural rules of the traffic courts. They can help you navigate the legal system, potentially get the ticket dismissed or reduced, and minimize the impact on your driving record and insurance rates.

How many points can I accumulate before my license is suspended?

In New York, your license may be suspended if you accumulate 11 points within an 18-month period. Different violations carry different point values, so it’s important to understand the implications of each ticket.

Will fighting a ticket save me money?

It can. While there’s an upfront cost to hiring a lawyer, reducing or eliminating fines, preventing insurance rate increases, and avoiding future penalties can save money in the long run.

What are the chances of getting a ticket dismissed?

The chances vary depending on the circumstances of your case, the evidence, and the specific traffic violation. An experienced lawyer can give you a realistic assessment after reviewing your case.

Do I have to appear in court if I hire a lawyer?

In many cases, your lawyer can appear on your behalf, especially for minor violations. This can save you time and the inconvenience of going to court.

How long does a traffic conviction stay on my record?

In New York, traffic convictions can remain on your driving record for at least three years. For insurance purposes, they may affect your rates for even longer.

Can I fight a traffic ticket if I’m from out of state?

Yes, out-of-state drivers can and should contest New York traffic tickets to avoid points and fines that may transfer to their home state.

What if I’ve lost my traffic ticket?

You should contact the court listed on the ticket as soon as possible. If you don’t have the information, a traffic ticket lawyer can help you retrieve the necessary details to respond to the ticket.

How quickly do I need to act after receiving a ticket?

You typically need to respond to a traffic ticket within 15-30 days of the issuance date. Failing to respond can result in a default conviction and additional penalties, including a possible suspension of your driving privileges.
