Red light tickets are tough tickets to get in New York City. Red light violations carry 3 points. The fine is much higher than regular fine, $278 as opposed to $138. Car insurance premiums go up substantially with a red light violation on your record.
Please note this refers to red light tickets that were issued by a police officer, not a red light camera. While camera tickets can be frustrating and expensive, they are far less problematic. Such tickets do not go on your driving record, do not have points, and do not cause insurance hikes. It is rarely worth it to retain an attorney to fight a camera ticket and probably a waste of time to fight it on your own
The Benjamin Goldman Law Office has fought numerous red-light tickets in the five boroughs. Though these tickets are hard to beat there are some possible defenses that we have used to beat tickets on behalf of our clients. Feel free to get in touch with us.
