Traffic tickets are a reality for New York motorists. From crackdowns on speeding and phone and texting violations, drivers always run the risk of receiving a traffic summons when they drive in New York. It's almost never advisable to plead guilty to moving violations in New York due to the large fines and insurance ramifications. Instead of taking the risks imposed by pleading guilty or attempting to attend a court date alone, drivers should hire an experienced attorney.
