Common Reasons Drivers Hire a Traffic Ticket Attorney in Oswego County

The following list is not subject to everything our law offices can help you with, however, we wanted to make it helpful for you to see the options available. For more information, you can head to our website, give us a call or send us an email, and we can direct you with what you need.

Speeding Tickets

Our law office frequently gets calls to help with speeding tickets. The common ticket has fines that range between $150 and $600, and a surcharge can be imposed with a price tag of $88 or $93.

The price range of the fine fluctuates depending on how fast you were going over the speed limit, but courts now have helped New Yorkers come up with payment plans to pay off their outstanding items. Weiss & Associates, PC can help you determine your next steps with direct and affordable (free) advice.

Fight a License Suspension

We can help you fight a suspended license. When your license is suspended or threatened to be suspended, you might not be able to operate a vehicle. Think about simple things like running or errands or going to work. Your daily lifestyle could be hindered if this is a possible outcome, and we want to help ensure you can stay on the roads.

Red Light Tickets

Here are potential outcomes of a red light ticket, if not altogether:

  • 3 points on your license
  • First-time violators can see a fine between $100 and $300
  • A surcharge added to the fine of $88 or $93

Obstructing Intersection Tickets

Obstructing an intersection is when a driver does not accommodate enough room for their vehicle to get across the intersection before the light changes. This kind of violation is commonly referred to as blocking the box. You should not “block the box,” so-to-speak, and only enter when you see there is enough room to get by safely.

This explanation is not applicable for vehicles turning right or left at intersections, only those attempting to go across an intersection and block traffic.

Stop Sign Tickets

If a driver’s vehicle fails to come to a complete stop at a stop sign, that driver is eligible to receive a routine traffic ticket for allegedly not stopping at a stop sign. This means all wheels on the vehicle must come to a complete stop at the line of the stop sign, crosswalk, or building line. Failure to do so could lead to 3 points on your license, as well as a fine that can be up to $150.

Cell Phone & Electronic Device Tickets

Cell Phone and Electronic Device tickets can fine a first-time violator between $50 and  $150. Those who allegedly committed the offense also can see 5 points counted on their driving record. Five points for one offense is a pretty strong consequence. This is because it takes 11 points total for your license to be suspended. Reckless driving is correlated with these types of tickets, they also are 5 points counted against you for one ticket. Device use is defined broadly, so it does not take much for police officers to be able to plead their case against you. Simply looking at your device could count as phone use.

Points and Fines Associated with Oswego County Traffic Tickets

Fines are paid to the government, whereas, points are counted on your driving record totally mark your offenses.

The bigger the fine, the more severe your crime. This is similar to the more points counted on your record, the more intense the violation could be.

Getting 11 or more points over an 18-month period can result in license suspension. You can find how many points the DMV counts against your per offense taken on our website.
