Do You Need A Traffic Ticket Lawyer To Help You Fight A Traffic Violation In Nassau County?

Nassau County issues a lot of traffic violations. There are many different police agencies and departments looking to enforce the traffic rules and regulations. Let’s face it… it’s a big money maker in Nassau County.

Nassau County is physically divided into three towns (Hempstead, North Hempstead, and Oyster Bay), and two cities (Long Beach and Glen Cove). Within the three towns reside 64 Incorporated Villages, each with their own police department, or traffic agents to enforce the traffic rules and regulations, and each issuing traffic tickets to earn revenue for their village.

Therefore, you have the Nassau County Police Department, plus many private police departments for each town, city or village looking to issue traffic violations. That equates to a lot of traffic violations!

A traffic violation or ticket may not seem like the most serious of offenses, but it can be much more serious than you think. After all, most people have received a traffic ticket (or several) in their lifetimes.

A conviction for certain traffic violations (or multiple traffic violations) can result in the loss of driving privileges in New York, higher insurance premiums, fines and fees, points on your license, even suspension and revocation of your driver’s license or privileges in New York.

I am attorney Luke Scardigno, and I serve clients for traffic violations and tickets in all of the various courts in Nassau County. The main court in Nassau County is the Nassau County Traffic Violations Agency located at 16 Cooper Street, West Hempstead, New York. I have more than 30 years of experience in criminal and traffic defense. I also handle Driving While Intoxicated cases.

In a free consultation, I can evaluate your situation and determine how best to go about fighting your traffic ticket. Call 718-414-6186 to learn more.

Remember: Paying the fine may seem like the easy thing to do, but paying the fine is an admission of guilt and will result in points on your license and higher insurance premiums. Learn about your legal options before signing a check.

Traffic Violations Defense

There are generally two options for a traffic violation defense in Nassau County:

First is a plea bargain. It may be possible to negotiate a plea to a lesser point or zero-point offense. I can negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf to seek the best possible resolution based on your past driving record.

The other option is a trial. Based on the strength or weakness of the facts of the case, I will make a decision with you as to which option is best.

I will evaluate your situation to determine which option is best for you, no matter what type of traffic violation charge you are facing:

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating (following too closely)
  • Cell phone tickets
  • Seat belt violations
  • Failure to signal
  • Failure to yield to a pedestrian
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • HOV lane violations
  • Red light tickets
  • Stop sign violations
  • Failure to maintain lanes
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Railroad crossing violations

I can also handle DMV investigations in Nassau County or any other county on your behalf. The prospect of license suspension and other consequences can be overwhelming, but I can help you.
