Summons for turning right on red in NYC, should I fight it?
I am located in nyc. I was stopped by a police car today when I turned right on red in order to move out of the way of a firetruck. In the process of moving out of the way, the car was put into an awkward position where it was blocking the cross walk so I had to complete the right turn. The cop wrote me up for reckless driving and violation of traffic lights (violation of section 1212). Whats the penalty for this? I've never been summoned, ,my record is clean. Should I fight it? And another thing is that I did not have my license or insurance papers on me at the moment but my girlfriend was able to retrieve my license for me from the house. Can these things be brought up and used against me if I wasn't charged for them if I plead not guilty and go to trial?

If you received a pink summons for reckless driving , I can "plea bargain" this charge with generally outstanding results. If you received a yellow summons returnable to Traffic Violations Bureau then it is an all or nothing situation. Please go to my web site wwwnydrunkdrivingdefense.com to see my qualifications.
