Attention: NJ Bus Operators

/ 0 Comments

If your buses travel to NYC and you receive motor vehicle violations which require you to appear in NY Criminal Court to answer the Summonses, be aware of the fact that as corporations, you must be represented by Legal Counsel and may have to have a representative of your company appear in Court as well.

Our law firm specializes in all transportation matters for bus companies and we are admitted to practice in NJ and in NY.  We can make the appearances for you, usually without a representative from your company appearing, and negotiate the best possible settlement of the violations charged against your company.  If the violations are equipment related, i.e. brake lights, warning triangles,first aid kits, leaking oil or transmission fluid, etc., proof that the repairs have been done within 24 hrs. is generally accepted to permit a dismissal and waiver of penalties.

Please call our firm for legal respresentation if you receive any Summonses in NYC (all 5 Boroughs).  Additionally, we can handle all of your NJ Municipal Court appearances in North Jersey.

First Aid Kits on Buses in NYC

/ 0 Comments

I was recently referred a matter from a Pennsylvania bus company which had been issued a ticket in NYC for not having a first aid kit installed in the bus.  While the kit would be helpful if someone were injured, the fact remains that the requirement for having a first aid kit in the bus is a NY Rule and cannot be enforced against interstate buses from other states.  This is part of the Federal Pre-Emption Rule whereby the State Rule cannot be applied against interstate carriers as it is an impediment too interstate commerce.  Well, at no small expense, we appeared for the client in NY Criminal Court and had the ticket dismissed.  The Judge may not have grasped the Rule that we argued, but did not not have the patience to debate it.
