Yonkers Traffic Infraction Defense Attorney
A traffic infraction or traffic citation is not a criminal offense but is considered a minor issue that can be resolved in traffic court. Speeding, failure to wear a seat belt, and improper turns are examples of infractions. An infraction may, however, turn into a misdemeanor if it threatened a person or property. For example, if a driver knowingly ran a red light where he could have seriously harmed other drivers or pedestrians, he may be charged with a misdemeanor, which is a criminal offense. Misdemeanors can result in high fines, loss of driving privileges, and even imprisonment.

Most people who receive traffic citations simply pay the fine just to get it over with. Courts are counting on this as it makes their job easy. By simply paying, however, you are admitting guilt. Besides the fine you pay, you may receive points on your driving record and resultant insurance rate hikes. The increase in your insurance rates usually last for three years. This increase may, in the long run, cost more than the ticket itself.
