Welcome to the Law Office of David Galison, P.C. Law Blog

Welcome to galisonlaw.com law blog. Our mission: to scour the universe for compelling stories in several related areas: DWI law, criminal law and and traffic law. Current changes in these laws offer broad interpretations, encompassing such recent news as the Leandra’s Law, and Jack Shea's law which eases restrictions on collecting blood in intoxication cases. We’ll write about industry news and legal trends, with a sprinkle of good old-fashioned gossip.

We’ll link to the best coverage of law and lawyers from around the Web, report some news of our own and look to you for contributions. We heartily invite your comments, tips and insights.

Along with my ruminations, this blog will include bits and bites from articles in the the New York Law Journal and Legal Newswires. Email me at david@galisonlaw.com.

School Zone Speeding Ticket Cameras, Hurry Up and Slow Down!

As many people may already know School Zone Speeding Ticket Cameras have recently been setup throughout Nassau County. These cameras are in addition to the red light cameras that have been installed over the past several years in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. While there are no points added to the license of the owner of the vehicle which allegedly went through the red light or sped through the speed zone, the fines generated by these violations are real and add up. As of the time of this writing September 25th, 2014 the fine for a violation of either offense is $50.00 plus a $30.00 Driver Safety Fee for a total of $80.00 per ticket. Often times the owner of the vehicle is not even the driver at the time of the offense was committed, and is unaware the ticket was even issued until several days down the road when a bill comes in the mail. The letter sent by the County or its representative includes a link so that you can view the infraction on your computer and watch the vehicle as it goes through the red light or speed zone.

While many assert that these cameras promote safe driving I believe that they are simply money makers that punish the driving public. I believe that often times the cameras can cause accidents by forcing motorists to slam on their brakes at the last minute thereby causing rear end accidents.

Below is a list of the School Zone Speeding Ticket cameras that I am aware of in Nassau County.

While it is probably easier to just pay the fine on one of these tickets you are always free to dispute the violation and have your day in court. The Law Office of David Galison, P.C., does not fight either Red Light Camera violations or School Zone Speeding Camera Violations.

Of course, should you receive a ticket from a police officer for running a red light or for speeding the Law Office of David Galison, P.C., will be happy to assist you in fighting the tickets in order to keep your department of motor vehicle points down, in addition to keeping your drivers auto insurance policy premiums down.
