SOME NYC LAWS FOR YOUR REVIEW

Fines issued to corporations must be paid at the time a plea is taken.

General Information on the Law Regarding Your license to Drive

Definitions

Suspension: your license, or privilege to drive is taken away for a period of time. You may be required to pay a suspension termination fee.

Revocation: your license, or privilege to drive is canceled. To get a new license, you must reapply to the Department of Motor Vehicles once the revocation period os over. You may be required to pay a license re-application fee. Your application may be denied if you have a poor driving record or refuse to meet DMV requirements.

Legal issues:

No Insurance
If you are convicted of operating an uninsured motor vehicle or permitting another person to operate your uninsured vehicle, your license will be revoked for at least one year. The same penalty applies if the DMV receives evidence that you were involved in an accident without being insured.

Failure to Answer a Ticket or Pay a Fine
Any person who fails to respond to tickets on at least 20 different dates can be convicted of "aggravated failure to answer tickets" or "failure to pay fines." This is a misdemeanor punishable by a mandatory fine of at least $500, a mandatory surcharge, and/or imprisonment for up to 180 days. You can be arrested even if you are not actually driving when caught.

Points
Points are charged against your driving record based on the date you committed the violation, not the date you were convicted in court. These are some of the points that truckers need to know.
