New York Traffic Division Complaint - Traffic Violation - Traffoc Violation

Review by loo loo on 2004-08-29
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- My husband was in NY City a few months ago and was following other traffic, did not see a sign posted that you could not make a left hand turn after 10am. Followed at least 4 other cars that all made the same turn. Well they all got stopped and were issued traffic citations. the problem is my husband was issued a citation that was for one of the other cars, the cop did not have him sign it, just handed it to him and walked on. My husband never really looked at it until he got home and then realized it was someone else on the ticket and not his car listed. We talked to our local police and they told him it was a police error and he should not have to pay it. Well I sent the NY Dept of Motor Vehicles a copy of the ticket he was given along with a copy of his drivers liscense and pleaded not guilty and they sent him a new ticket along with a court date. Does anyone know if this is someone he can get out of or should we just pay it and get it over with. Thanks for any input.

If you don't live in new york and if you don't go there often i would not pay it. when my brother went to school in boston my parents would drive to see him alot and would always get parking and speeding tickets and they never payed one of them, and that was over 10 years now.

If you do not pay a ticket of ANY kind (parking, speeding, violation, etc.) then your state can and will revoke your license or registration with no prior notice. Talk to your lawyer. Also - do you really think that this forum is a good place to get an accurate answer regarding a legal question? I hope you are looking into other avenues as well!

I didn't say that was the solution, i just stated that i would not pay it if i received the ticket if i didnt travel to new yorl often. and for my state revoking licences its been over 10 years and my parents have been pullled overin them 10 years and had there licences run and they still havent payed the hundreds of dollars in tickets. and SIFFER stupider is not a word.
