Okay, so I got pulled over by a police car this morning for running a red light near the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn, NYC. It's annoying and irritating, but I did run a red light, and I won't mind paying whatever ticket that would be.
But here's where it gets a bit complicated. Instead of a ticket, I got a court summons (3 months from now), and the summons read that I've violated Penal Law 240.20-7: Creating hazardous condition (http://ypdcrime.com/penal.law/article240.htm#p240.20). But I've googled it a bit, and it seems that this is the wrong law to charge me under - it should have been under the Vehicle & Traffic Law 1111D1 (http://www.safeny.ny.gov/trde-vt.htm).
Do anybody have any good ideas how I go about this? As I said, I won't mind paying whatever fine I deserve - I did break the law. But being charged under Penal Law kind of freaks me out. Should I be worried?
