ALJ 097’s Queens North TVB Wrongful Verdict – Ticket # ABD07672222: Failed to Yield the Right-of-Way – Claimant: Queens Northeastern Police Precinct 111, Officer 944538
There are types of tickets where an officer’s judgment cannot be called into question. These tickets generally have to do with tickets that are clear cut, like running through a stop sign or making an illegal U-turn. Here, challenging a ticket involves challenging whether or not the officer saw you perform the ticketed action.
Outside of New York City traffic cases are heard in either city or justice courts with elected judges. However, within NYC’s 5 boroughs the court is not a justice court but an administrative court run by the NYS DMV. This means that the speeding tickets are heard not by elected officials but by judges whom are employees of the DMV. They are known as “Administrative Law Judges.”
