A: You are not allowed to drive a vehicle in a public store parking lot without a license, registration and insurance.
Q. I have only a learners permit. Im from NY but I got a speeding ticket in kentuckywhile taking turns driving a rental car
A: A speeding ticket in the state of Kentucky will not suspend your driver's license in NY, as long as you comply with Kentucky. (don't ignore the ticket)
Q. got ticket going 55 in 35, and another going 75 in 55 a month later. court reduced 1st ticket to lower speed at 2 points
A: You can take the course right after you get the ticket. The conviction date has nothing to do with it.
A: If he is not able to get a NY driver's license, or insurance, we can get a copy of his driving record here: This should show where the suspension is from. He can then follow up directly with the Court or agency.
Q. NYS 37530 - Driver View Obstructed. I dont know wether to plead guilty or not?
A: This is a zero point violation. Unless the ticket was given in consequence of an accident, go ahead and plead guilty.
Q. If at a turnlight, there are only two colors (green & yellow), can you make the turn when there is no light? (two black)
A: We both know that the third light is supposed to be red, but its broken. According to the NY vehicle and traffic law, you don't have to stop because the red light isn't visible HOWEVER if you drive into oncoming traffic, you will crash. So wait until the green light comes back.
Q. I have received 2 Tickets for No inadequate lights (3752A1) and inadequate plate lamps (3752A4)
A: Please not guilty. The Court will mail a conference date letter to you. On the conference date show up with a copy of the receipts showing that your fixed the defects.
Q. Ticket for 4-03A1, but there were no pedestrians. I failed to yield right of way for car on opposite side. Can I plea?
A: You can plead 'not guilty' and either go to trial yourself, or hire an attorney to represent you at the trial. The likelihood of success depends on which borough of NYC it occurred in.
