Move-Over Law Tickets In New York

When driving on a roadway in New York, if you see a police car that has pulled someone over, or you see other emergency or service vehicles on the road, the move-over law requires that you give the individuals space to complete their work. This means you need to slow down and change lanes as soon as possible.

Many drivers are ticketed each year for violating the move-over law. They either did not see the emergency vehicle or passed in a manner that the workers considered unsafe. If this has happened to you while visiting the region or while driving around town, you need to consult an attorney to discuss your options.

At the Law Office of Jack Kotchick, located in Binghamton, we provide aggressive representation for clients charged with a host of different traffic violations, including move-over law tickets. With over three decades of experience in criminal law, we are well-suited to help you prepare a strong defense.

What You Need To Know About Your Ticket

It is important that you take action to address any move-over tickets you receive as soon as possible. There are significant penalties associated with these tickets, which include:

  • Three points on your driving record
  • Fines of up to $750, as well as court costs
  • Increased insurance premiums
  • Potential additional tickets for other offenses

Mr. Kotchick is a former prosecutor, and he understands both sides of the criminal justice system. As a client of our firm, you will get the benefit of his experience working for you as he negotiates on your behalf to try to help you resolve your ticket.

Most of the traffic tickets that we handle include a "money-back guarantee." This means we will refund your retainer fee in full if we are unable to lessen the charges you are facing or reduce the consequences of your ticket. We will explain this in greater detail when you come to our office to speak about your specific situation.
