Fighting a New York City Traffic Ticket

Production Date: June 27, 2015 Practice Areas: Litigation Estimated Length: 4500 minutes


$ 89 Litigation In Stock

Fighting a traffic ticket in New York City is very different from doing so elsewhere in New York. Specifically, violations of New York's Vehicle and Traffic Law are adjudicated at the Traffic Violations Bureau, an administrative agency run by the Department of Motor Vehicles. 


In this session, we explain the unique workings of the Traffic Violations Bureau as well as various law relating to maintaining one's privilege to drive in New York. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the various vehicle and traffic laws, how to fight such cases, and the DMV point system.


Learning Objectives:

I.   Grasp when and why to fight a NYC traffic ticket

II.  Comprehend the DMV point system

III. Learn how to review a ticket

IV. Understand why the TVB is a "world apart"

V.  Explore hearing and cross examination strategies
