A New Way To Avoid A Traffic Ticket?

I am so excited.  After years of figuring out ways to help motorists with avoiding New York speeding ticket convictions on their record, I found a new angle … the type of car you drive.  That’s right the type of car has a direct impact upon whether you will receive a traffic ticket.   A recent study performed by Quality Planning (a California company that confirms policyholder information for auto insurance companies) shows that the type of car you drive has a direct impact on whether you will receive a traffic ticket.  Generally, the more powerful cars were a ticket to receiving a moving violation.

Ranking cars based upon how much below or above the national average in terms of violations issued, the study concluded that .23 violations were issued on average for every 100,000 miles driven.  Drivers of the Hummer H2 and H3 led the pack with 1.07 tickets issued per 100,00 miles, 4.63 times more likely to get a ticket than the average car with the Toyota Scion tC a close second at 4.60 times.  Also towards the top of ticket magnet vehicles were the Mercedes Benz’ CLK63 AMG and CLS63,Toyota’s Scion xA, Scion xB and Matrix, Audi A4 and the Subaru Outback station wagon.

So what car do you drive in you have a lead foot?    Bringing up the rear were family vehicles and cars which appeal to older drivers such as the Buick Park Avenue (pictured below), the Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan and the Chevy Suburban SUV.

  • Dear Traffic Lawyer:

    I received an obstructing traffic at intersection violation sect 4-08 (e) 12 at 36th and 9th avenue this morning.

    I entered the intersection while the light was green I made it more than half the way through, the light turned yellow than red. At that point I pulled over a little to the left so the downtown traffic wouldn’t hit my tailend. Two traffic officers stepped towards my car and the car in front of me. They told me I needed to pull over. They didn’t give him a ticket even though they said they did.

    My ticket says the “agent observed my vehicle enter the intersection while vehicular traffic Was stopped on opposite side of intersection without sufficient unobstructed space on opposite side of intersection to accomodate vehicle.” it goes on to say I didn’t turn or display any indication of turning.

    One of the traffic officers stated it has 2 points attached.

    Is this true? What is the best way to plead not guilty? I don’t have any evidence. It’s their word against mine. Now that I’m writing this I realize that the second officer was there to be a witness.

    Thank you for your time and attention.

    • If your traffic ticket is returnable at the Traffic Violations Bureau (as opposed to the NYC Department of Finance), then it is a 2-point moving violation type of ticket.

      The best way to plead not guilty to any Traffic Violations Bureau traffic ticket is via the TVB online system. The other two options are via mail or in-person. Via mail does not guarantee that your plea will be timely received and in-person is time consuming.

      There are many ways to obtain a favorable result and I am happy to give you a free consultation. Otherwise, I’ve wrote and article entitled “Fighting A Traffic Ticket At The Traffic Violations Bureau” which should help you.
