Answers and Help. Expert TLC Traffic Attorney, Michael Spevack, Esq., explains your limitations dealing with the Traffic and Limousine Commission (TLC) at the airport.

Can the TLC issue me a ticket for picking up a passenger at the NYC airport even if I don’t have a TLC License or Plates?

Very good question; The TLC is a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission. It is a Mayoral Agency that controls the licensing and enforcement of For-Hire-Vehicles.

If TLC believes that you are acting like a For-Hire-Car, they can stop you or approach your car and attempt to determine if they believe you are behaving like a taxi. If you do not have TLC credentials, you can face major fines and other serious consequences.

Oftentimes, TLC officers are operating undercover trying to see if you are acting like a taxi. The inspector may ask for a ride in NYC or even outside the city to Connecticut, New Jersey, etc.

Don’t be foolish – Don’t go it alone!

What is the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission?

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC), created in 1971, is the agency responsible for licensing and regulating New York City’s medallion (yellow) taxicabs, for-hire vehicles (community-based liveries, black cars and luxury limousines), commuter vans, and paratransit vehicles.

The Commission’s Board consists of nine members, eight of whom are nonsalaried Commissioners. The salaried Chair/Commissioner presides over regularly scheduled public Commission meetings, and is the head of the agency, which maintains a staff of approximately 600 TLC employees assigned to various divisions and bureaus.

The TLC court is located in the TLC building and operated by OATH Judges. It’s very tough to win at trial because of inspector biases.

Don’t go it alone!

The minimum fine for certain TLC ticket violations can be as high as $2000 with the maximum as high at $10,000 and if you get repeat summonses, it  will lead to the suspension of your DMV license.

As an experienced NYC Traffic Ticket Attorney, I have a 90% success rate in getting fines reduced by half or more with a plea bargain.
