Q

I recently got a ticket for Avoiding a traffic control device under section 1225 in the state of New York. Would this violation mean points for me on my driving records? Thanks in advance.


A

Section 1225 of the New York Vehicle and Traffic Laws (VAT) is titled Avoiding intersection or traffic control device. Here it states that no person shall drive across or upon a sidewalk, driveway, parking lot or private property, or otherwise drive off a roadway, in order to avoid an intersection or traffic control device.

This type of offense likely falls into what the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles lists on its points schedule as an "other moving violation" that is not specifically listed and thus will probably be assigned 2 points. You can check with the NYS DMV or the court listed on your traffic ticket to find out for certain if you will be assessed points if you are convicted of this violation of NY law.
