Running a Red Light

 

There are two types of tickets for running a red lights. 

The first one is a ticket that results from a camera taking a picture.  If you receive a ticket for running a red light based on a photo from a traffic camera there will be no points against your license, but there will be a fine.

Running a red light is a common offense in NYC and the Bronx.

If a police officer issues you a ticket, there will be a fine and three points on your license which will last for 18 months.  If you acquire six total points in any 18-month period you will be hit with the New York Drivers Responsibility Fee. This is a $100 annual fee for three years which may increase depending on how many points you receive. You can learn more about this fee from the DMV website.

As an experienced attorney, I have helped clients avoid costly fees, increased insurance premiums, and license suspensions stemming from these types of tickets.
