What Is Considered A Moving Violation On Long Island?
You’ll be charged with a moving violation if you violated a traffic law while your vehicle is in motion. A few common examples of moving violations are speeding, failing to yield, running a stop sign or failing to stop for a school bus, illegal turns, tailgating, driving a car that is not registered, driving a car without insurance, using a cell phone while driving and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Committing these violations and failing to respond may be punishable by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). It can carry points to your driving record and generally could affect your driver’s license and insurance rates. Additionally, the DMV may suspend your car’s registration or driver’s license.
