Uber and Lyft Driver Defense

Driving for a ride-hailing service like Uber, Lyft or Gett allows many New Yorkers to supplement their income or build a flexible career. However, the security of that career can be compromised if a driver is stopped for speeding, reckless driving or another traffic infraction.

When you rely on your vehicle and license to pay your bills, it is imperative that you fight traffic charges and all of their consequences. At Katz Lawyers in New York, we have extensive experience in all facets of traffic law. We help drivers all over the state resolve tickets promptly and effectively so they can get back on the road.

Protect Your License

Most drivers will get a traffic ticket at some point in their lives, often with minimal consequences. However, ride-hailing drivers must be extra vigilant about fighting these charges. Traffic violations have a variety of consequences. These may include points on your driver's license, increased insurance rates or even the loss of your driving privileges. For professional drivers, they may even threaten your standing with the rideshare company.

In order for the court to find you "guilty" of a traffic infraction, the police officer who conducted your stop must have had reasonable cause. If they are unable to prove that was the case, you are entitled to fight your ticket in order to minimize the impact on your driver's license and your career.

We also represent drivers at hearings before the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission, which regulates ride-hailing services and drivers in the five boroughs of New York City.
