What Happens if i’m Pulled Over for a Traffic Infraction?
- In New York State, if you’re pulled over for a traffic infraction, more commonly known as a Stop sign or speeding, you could be fined.

The fines for a first offender can be up to $150, with a mandatory New York State surcharge of anywhere between $80 and $95, depending on the jurisdiction that you’re in.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney for a Traffic Ticket?

What Should I do if I lost My Traffic Ticket?
- If you’ve lost your traffic ticket, immediately contact an attorney who does a lot of vehicle and traffic law.
