Effective Defense For Traffic Violations
It is not uncommon for individuals to consider traffic violations as minor inconveniences. Unfortunately, as points amass on your driving record, drivers can face increasingly severe penalties such as fines and the eventual loss of driving privileges.
At Law Office of Lindsey Pieper, I provide experienced criminal defense representation. I defend clients facing a broad range of traffic offenses, including:
- Drunk driving offenses, including DWI and DWAI
- Driving on a suspended/revoked license
- Speeding tickets
- Reckless driving
- Driving without a license
- Traffic violations while driving on a permit
- Illegally passing a school bus
- Failure to yield
- Failure to signal a turn or lane change
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Tickets from accidents
- Failure to yield the right of way for an emergency vehicle

Too Many Points Can Cost You Your License
Many individuals would rather pay a ticket than find an attorney to fight the charge. Motorists may discount relatively minor offenses, but multiple ‘minor’ offenses can lead to very serious consequences.
This can cause points to quickly accumulate on your driving record and result in loss of driving privileges and a license suspension. In general, accruing 11 points over an 18-month span will set the suspension process in motion.
Cellphone Use In New York
Cellphones can be very distracting. Police have broad authority to arrest drivers using electronic devices while driving. In what was formerly a zero-point offense, this violation can now add five points to your driving record.
In Rochester and communities throughout the state, law enforcement officers will be aggressively looking for drivers who are texting, talking without hands-free or even those who appear to be looking down, distracted, at their cellphone. I can work to prevent this charge from becoming points against your license.
