Traffic Violations

Depending on variables such as the type of drug involved and the quantity found, a drug possession charge in New York can be a serious matter in itself that can result in serious consequences. But for the same reason that alcohol intoxication offenses take on a new and more ominous quality when combined with a traffic stop, so does a drug possession charge when the drugs are found after you have been pulled over by a police officer.

The reason for this increased seriousness is based on safety considerations. A moving vehicle has the potential to cause significant injury and property damage even when the driver is not under the influence of drugs or alcohol; anything that may make the driver less capable of driving safely becomes something to be actively discouraged as a matter of public policy.

What this can mean to you is that if you are stopped by a police officer and drugs or drug paraphernalia are found in the vehicle, you are no longer dealing with an ordinary situation such as a speeding ticket, but a matter that can lead to significant penalties and even jail time if you are convicted.

In a traffic court matter, you have simple choices that can include paying the ticket or representing yourself. A drug charge in combination with a traffic infraction makes it much more important to retain effective legal counsel from a law firm that has experience with traffic-related legal defense.
