Trucking Equipment Violation (Missing HUT Sticker) Reduced to a Parking Ticket

December 2019

The People of the State of New York vs. P.C.S.I. - Suffolk County District Court Central Islip

My client was driving a company owned truck for his employer, a general contractor, who did not have a Highway Use Tax Sticker (HUT) for his vehicle. My client was pulled over an issued a ticket for violation of New York Tax Law 1815. 

I appeared for my client on a Friday morning when he had to be at work. With permission of the corporation, I made a motion to substitute the corporation as a defendant instead of the employee. After showing the prosecutor that the corporation promptly applied for the HUT sticker with the New York State Department of Taxation, the Prosecution agreed to offer a plea to the reduced charge of  VTL 1202(b), a parking violation with a $125 fine and surcharge imposed.

Both my individual client, and the corporate client, were happy that they did not have to miss a day of work or disrupt business operations to spend a day in the Criminal Court fighting a ticket.
