Flashing High Beams OK, Leaving Them On is Not

by Seth Azria on 12/27/2023

Failure to dim headlights is a 2 -point offense with a maximum fine of $150 plus a $93 surcharge. If you were charged with this violation, a critical fact will be if you flashed the high beams or left them on for oncoming traffic.

Just flashing high beam headlights, alone, is not a violation of the law requiring dimming of headlights to prevent dazzling light from interfering with oncoming motorists. Vehicle and Traffic Law § 375(3), People v. Rose, 67 A.D.3d 1447 (4th Dep't 2009).

Took care of business

I needed an expert to help me navigate a speeding ticket in the courts. I was from out of town and Seth was great at explaining the options. I left it in his hands and he was able to negotiate and took care of whatever was necessary. He made it extremely easy and I was happy with the results. Highly recommended.

I worked with Seth Azria on numerous traffic tickets I’ve received. Most were 4-6 point violations and all of them have been reduced to 0 points or dismissed. Highly recommend working with this firm!
