How can I fight a traffic ticket?
Question Details: I got a traffic ticket in NYC for taking a right turn on a red. I'm from upstate and taking a right turn on red is allowed unless a posted sign says otherwise. What can I do to fight this ticket? I was also pulled over from a unmarked police unit and not sure if it is a legal stop or it's illegal since it was a unmarked cop car.
There is nothing you can do to fight this ticket:
1) As you have probably heard, "ignorance of the law is no defense." That you were unaware of the law in NYC is irrelevant and does not provide a legal defense.
2) Unmarked police cars may issue tickes and their stops are legal.
There is nothing in your question which would provide a legal defense to the ticket.
