What are Traffic Infractions as Opposed to Misdemeanors?

by Seth Azria on 7/03/2018

"Traffic Infraction is defined by the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 155. 
A traffic infraction is not a crime. If you are charged with a traffic infraction, as opposed to misdemeanor or felony, it means that you do not have to appear in court and you may answer the ticket by mail.  That answer may be "guilty" or "not guilty." We strongly advise against pleading guilty without first seeking a reduction.

A misdemeanor, on the other hand, is a classified as a crime and requires a physical appearance in court for an arraignment. Misdemeanors also have increase fines and penalties The most common misdemeanor traffic ticket is Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (AUO).

Seth Azria and his team are the absolute BEST in the game. During the initial consultation Mr. Azria was very thorough in explaining the whole process and possible outcomes. The fees were VERY reasonable. The level of responsiveness was superb. Kudos to Monica as well!!!! - I appreciate all of your assistance. It’s never fun to get a ticket out of state. But thanks to this team, they turned a stressful incident into a quick, easy and painless situation. I would HIGHLY recommend this firm to anyone who is looking for an attorney in the area.

Drivers License Revocation

Recently I lost my drivers license due to receiving multiple tickets in a six month period. Along with that I had a misdemeanor and some other points on my license record. I had received a notice from dmv and was going to have to be without my drivers license for 2 years. I got in contact with Seth Azria at the Azria Law Office to see if there was anything at all I could do about my predicament. Seth Azria worked on my case and within a short amount of time I got a notice in the mail from dmv saying that the revocation order for my license has been rescinded. I would highly recommend the Azria law firm to anyone who is in need of legal assistance. Very easy to work with as well.
