Tailgating Tickets (Following Too Closely) in Queens & NYS – a 4-Point Violation 

tailgating tickets lawyers Queens

If need a lawyer for a tailgating ticket in Queens or NYS call My Tickets NYC.

If you drive in Queens or NYC, you probably feel that you could get a tailgating ticket during every rush hour. Driving in Queens or NYC you end up in bumper-to-bumper traffic every day. Traffic enforcement officers usually will not give you a tailgating ticket under these circumstances but rather for following too closely when the traffic is moving at normal rates of speed. You may counter that even at full speed it is often impossible not to drive close to the car in front of you in Queens or throughout the 5 boroughs and that the ticket is very subjective.

The law is subjective and states:

S 1129 “The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicle and the traffic upon and the conditions of the highway…. vehicles shall be so operated as to allow sufficient space between each such vehicle or combination of vehicles so as to enable any other vehicle to enter and occupy such space without danger.” My Tickets NYC is here to help.

 

How do I Defend Myself From Tailgating Tickets in Queens & NY?

Drivers in Queens, NYC and any area with heavy traffic may find themselves in traffic that does not leave much space for other vehicles to easily occupy that space between two cars. While the lawyers at My Tickets NYC always recommend that you leave a safety cushion between you and other vehicles, we know that in heavy traffic giving yourself this cushion is next to impossible. The facts show that 4 out of 10 accidents involving rear-end collisions occur due to someone tailgating or following too closely. It is common sense to give yourself more space between the cars in front of you in bad weather… but in Queens and NYC this is always a challenge. It is always recommended that you change lanes to avoid tailgating… if possible. If you feel that you have unfairly received a ticket for tailgating, call My Tickets NYC and we will prepare a vigorous defense for you.

“I used My Tickets NYC on two separate occasions and both times received excellent service, and both times they were able to dismiss my tickets. I would definitely recommend anyone who receives a ticket to give them a call and experience the same success.”
