Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Was your ticket for VTL 401? Was your car impounded?
Your answer isn't clear. I asked if it was impounded and you said "No, it was impounded." Did you mean it was NOT impounded.
Was the ticket for VTL 401? Is there a fine you can pay or must you appear?
If your registration has been expired for more than 60 days, the fine will range from anywhere from $70 to $300. That doesn't include court costs and the state surcharge. The judge will determine the fine in court.
This is a traffic infraction. It is not considered a moving violation and does not carry any points, but there is a possibility of up to 15 days in jail. While I don't see that happening or the police would have arrested you in the first place, it is something you should know about.
If you cannot appear because you're going back to your home state, you can likely have a lawyer appear on your court date and dispose of this case for you.
