Recently a driver who received a cell phone ticket in Tarrytown, New York contacted our office and explained that he had received a cell phone ticket in Tarrytown, New York. As the driver explained, the driver's employment was dependent upon maintaining no points on their driver's license and as a result the seemingly unbeatable cell phone ticket was frightening. The facts were that the driver was proceeding west on Main Street in Tarrytown when a police officer claimed to have observed the driver talking on his cell phone while he was driving in stop and go traffic. When the driver appeared on their own behalf they were told that the police officer would reduce the ticket to a two point ticket. It was a take it or go to trial situation. The driver, knowing that a two point ticket would result in losing their job had no choice. He had to go to trial. That is when he came to our firm and hired our Tarrytown cell phone ticket lawyer. The result of the trial, cell phone ticket dismissed. Interestingly, the cell phone ticket was dismissed because the police officer did not fully understand the cell phone ticket law and should not have issued the ticket in the first instance.
