You can identify the VTL section you’re being charged with by looking at your speeding ticket under the part that says “section sub section”.

1.     Figure out whether you should fight your ticket or just plead guilty and pay the fine:

In most cases, it is NOT a good idea to plead guilty to the charge. Instead you can plead not guilty and fight your ticket!  Police officers and prosecutors want you to plead guilty to speeding charges because it makes their job very easy.  Pleading guilty means you give up your rights to a trial and you automatically have to pay fines, take points on your license and pay higher insurance rates.

Pleading guilty means you throw in the towel and give up your right to fight and potentially avoid the damaging consequences of a speeding ticket when in reality you are innocent until proven guilty.  In many cases, an attorney can get you a dismissal (all charges are dropped and without fines or penalties) or a reduction in fines and points.  Here are some reasons why you should fight your speeding ticket:

  • Excessive Fines & Surcharges
  • Points on your license
  • Higher Insurance Premiums
  • Possible License Suspension & Revocation
  • Possible State Fines -  New York Driver Responsibility Assessment
  • Loss of your job (if a valid driver’s license or CDL is required)

  1. Richard

    I got pulled over in Hancock on RT 17 doing 87 in a 55. I am a 19 year old student with one other speeding ticket (the points got removed because I took a defensive driving course online). Searched my car for being suspicious, and I fully complied to avoid any issues. The officer then told me that I could write to the judge and get the points reduced or get it knocked down to a nonmoving violation. What am I facing, and should I fight the ticket or try for a plea bargain, and in each case? Would mentioning the part about the search be beneficial in court?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You are facing 6 points and a max. penalty of $393 + a DRA / Driver Responsibility Assessment ($300 for the first 6 points and $75 for each additional). Contrary to your belief, the course does not remove the points, it just “reduces” them which means that you get a 4 point credit but the points still exist for insurance, DRA, and the fact that if you get 3 speeding convictions in 18 months you lose your license.

    Hello,

    I got a ticket for 77 in a 55 on I-87 i believe in Yonkers.

    I have a clean driving record.

    Can you give me an idea of costs, etc?

    thanks,
    vadim

  3. Don

    I am from NJ got ticket for 80 in a 65 on I88 in Worcester, NY. The trooper asked if i knew why he pulled over? I said “I guess I was going going a little fast but didnt realize” He said ticket has no points because he wrote it as 1180D “speed in zone”, so just mail it in with payment. I now see he put on Supporting Deposition my statement “Iknow I was going a little fast”. What are costs/ramifications and do I need counsel? Thanks.

  4. Robert

    I sped up to 44 on a 30 zone while I was merging into the street. I explained to the cop that I sped only to the flow of traffic but he still gave me a ticket.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      That is a 4 point ticket; contrary to popular belief “driving with the flow of traffic” is not a defense to speeding which is a strict liability offense which means if you exceed the speed limit (for any reason) you are guilty.

  5. Debra

    My 19 old son just got a ticket the middle of last week that said he was doing 70 in a 55 on Rt. 9 just south of Saratoga Springs. He was driving a car we had just got so he wasn’t used to it. The VTL section says it was an 1180B infraction. None of us have ever received an ticket before & were prepared to have him suck it up and deal with it until I started researching some of the costs, etc. & reading some of these posts. What are we looking at in terms of points, fine costs, insurance costs & legal fees? What are truly the odds that we can get this reduced? Also he started to fill out the paperwork to plead guilty already so is that any issue? We have not mailed it in yet.

  6. sam

    I got a ticket going 60mph in a 45mph in upstate NY. Was not school or work zone. My record is clean prior to this.

    1.) If I show up on my court date what will/could happen?
    2.) Is my insurance guaranteed to go up if this is a first offense?
    3.) If I mail the ticket in and plead guilty what happens from there?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      It is impossible to answer the first two questions without more information. If you plead not guilty they will schedule a court appearance for you or your attorney (if you hire one).

  7. Jay

    I got a “disobeyed traffic control device” ticket for speeding in Fredonia, town of Pomfret. It is very far for me to go to the court there. The ticket indicates that I can mail a respond of the ticket. What would happen if I select not guilty and mail the ticket to the court? Do I have to go to the court in person? Is there a chance to get no point deducted just by mail?

  8. denise

    I got a ticket doing 71 in a 55. The tropper told me if my record is clean they will probably reduce the ticket. I have to send in guilty or not guilty. My license is clean, a parking ticket over 2 years ago. What should i do? The ticket saiys laser and i know i was speeding just can prove if it was that fast or not.

  9. Melissa

    I got pulled over doing 55 in a 30 lane in Nassau. I didn’t see any signs also the cop was walking away while telling me my speed and also never gave me back my driver license. I work in a hospital I got called in from a wedding in I didn’t get a chance to explain anything. What should I do. I don’t want any points.

  10. Gigi

    I got a ticket at yorktown, NY route 63. The speed zone was 55mph and I was going 72mph. I missed the sign and thought it was 65mph. How do I fight this? Would it take a long time? I will be out the country for this summer and next semester for study abroad. I’ve never got a speeding ticket before, I am not sure how this works. Should I go in person to drop off the ticket and pledge not guilty and be able to get an appointment that day for the DA meeting? Or just pled guilty and pay the fine to avoid missing the court date in case it’s not before June?

    Thank you!

  11. Chris

    Hi, I am a 21 year old college student and who got ticketed last night doing 70 in a 55.

    Last March, I got a ticket last as well doing 58 in a 35, but through a Reduction Request, I got it dropped to a 45 in a 35. Afterwards I completed a Defensive Driving course to remove the points added to my license. These are my only two offenses.

    Would you have any recommendations for me? Thank you.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You are under the incorrect assumption that the course removes the points, in fact it does not. All it does is give you a 4 point credit. So for purposes of insurance, and the DRA penalty ($300 for the first 6 points and $75 for each additional) and the rule that if you get 3 speeds in 18 months you get suspended – the course does not help. Thus, I’d suggest you fight this new ticket.

  12. CORY

    I was doing 79mph in a 55mph area on the Southern State Pkwy in Long Island. It was 2:30am and I was taking coworkers home. The officer said plead not guilty to the ticket and appear in person. What’s the most that can to me, my license, my insurance?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Cory – this is a 6 point offense with a max. fine of $393, a $300 DRA penalty, and according to a recent study by insurancequotes.com, the national average auto insurance premium increase for 16-30mph over the limit is 28%.

  13. shreya

    I got a speeding ticket in january for which i pleaded guilty. now i have received a court order to pay a fine. Also i have received a suspension order saying that my licence will be suspended with effect from next month. my question is will my licence will be suspended in case i do not pay the fine or irrespective of the fine submission my licence will be suspended? I was on a probation period.

  14. Tiffany

    Hi,
    I was pulled over today doing 81 in a 55 in suffolk county. I was given a ticket and te police officer told me to plead guilty otherwise he would show and make sure my license is suspended. Much like everyone else I can not afford this to happen! I am 25, never had a speeding ticket before. What could happen in terms of points, fees , loosing my license and insurance going up? Also, do you serve suffolk county? How much are your fees? Thank you !!

  15. Ashley Pitner

    I recieved a speeding ticket today for 86 miles in a 45 zone. I don’t believe I have any points on my license. I’m sure a reduction in speed or points is possible but hwo do I go about doing this, do I need to hire you guys or how does this work?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You are looking at 11 points and a license suspension. Whether or not a reduction can be accomplished depends on a number of factors. If you call our offices we can advise.

  16. dina

    I got a ticket for ‘speed not reasonable & prudent’. It was raining, in a 3 lane highway (duchess county NY) I sped up to pass a bus and got pulled over. Is this considered a speeding ticket that can give me points? I’m going to plea not guilty. But I don’t understand what kind of ticket this is and it’s reproductions.

  17. Stacy

    I just got pulled over on a highway where the speed limit was 65, and i was doing 79. I have had no points on my licence before this. I had never been pulled over before. How much of a fine am i facing?
    i choked up, didnt even know what to say to the officer when he pulled me over because i had never been in the situation before.
    Im still shooken up from it all, even though i know the situation isnt that bad.

  18. Matt

    My 17 yr old son got a speeding ticket in the town of Portland (Brockton NY) we are from the buffalo area. He was doing 80 in a 65 zone on the I -190. We have research this and it looks like its 4 points and a 60 days suspension. We don’t want the points on our insurance ( the 60 day suspension is a good thing for young drivers)! What do we do???

  19. arun

    I received a speeding ticket going 85 in 65 on route 684 in NY. I am from NJ. What should I do and is there reciprocity

  20. Kelly

    Just got a ticket for going 65 in a 45 mph work zone in Lewiston, NY (Niagara County)
    I had only sped up cuz I thought a semitruck was about to merge into me (not that this matters to an officer/court)

    I already have a ticket for going 40mph in a 20mph schoolzone. Am going to court for that the 22nd.

    Was wondering if it would be better to fight today’s ticket before I go to court next week?
    Or if its even worth fighting or not?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      I would suggest fighting both of those tickets. The former is a 4 point work zone speed (2 of them leads to license suspension) and the latter is a 4 point school zone speed with a very high fine (max. 693) not to mention the $450 DRA penalty.

  21. Dan

    I got 4 tickets yesterday on LIE in Suffolk for HOV violation
    1128D,1128A,1110A and 3191U
    I am from Connecticut, this is my first violation in 6 years and first of this type.
    I can provide insurance letter for one ticket.
    I can ask for deposition on another ticket – Move from lane unsafely
    What should I do , Is it possible to get a plea bargain ?
    Thanks.

  22. Robert Ferguson

    85 in a 65 zone, I-81 southbound, Cortlandville. Some particulars on ticket are wrong; wrong spelling of city on my DL and wrong make of vehicle written down. I looked down at speedometer and saw 75, not 85. I have driven from Ottawa to Bronx return each weekend to see my fiance, 42 weekends in a row and never had a problem before. Clean driving record, with letters of safe driving from my insurers since I was 16 (30 years). No points, never been in an accident or caused one. I am worried about the wording on the ticket which states my license and registration could be suspended. I can’t have that, I’m in the military, need my license, and need to be able to maintain my relationship by driving each weekend. Can you help?

  23. Ed

    I am from PA and I got pulled over by a NY state trooper this morning going 77 in a 55 right after the state line in the town of Kiantone. I see that this will give me 6 points on my license. This was my first time ever being pulled over. Is there any possibility I could get the fine and points reduced?

  24. Edwin Suen

    I dunno if my first post went thru. I got a speeding ticket going 80 in a 65 zone. In town of Pomfret 0768 Chautauqua. I was going towards the I-90w. I’m a Canadian citizen. Can u let me know what will happen to me n what I should do. I’m going back to Canada tomorrow. So if u can response asap would be great. Thanx Again.

    Edwin

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is a 4 demerit point speed and there is reciprocity between NY and Ontario, Canada so contesting the ticket would be a worthwhile investment.

  25. Stacey

    I received a ticket from a state trooper saying I was going 46 in a 30 and I just turned onto the street going up a small hill. I believe this is incorrect how can I be speeding just when I was at a red light then the light turn green and I turned left onto the street going up a stipe hill I don’t believe at all I was speeding that fast.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      I understand your logic but I am not sure that a judge would agree. It is certainly possible to be going up a hill and accelerate to 46mph. This is why it might be a better option to try to get the speed reduced.

  26. Avedis

    I got a speeding ticket in Warrensburg Town in Warren county NY. I do not believe I was going 80 MPH in 65 zone. He asked me if I knew how fast I was going I said at most 75 but he insisted it was 80 I asked to see the reading he said it is not possible. I was travelling with my 82 year old mother and I would not drive that fast anyway let alone her being in my car. He was on an overpass and he followed me for a long while until he turned his lights on and pulled me over I would say at least 4-5 miles until he pulled me over while riding behind me and on my side.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      That is a 4 point speed; we have plenty of experience with Warrensburg and, depending on your driving record, we should be able to get you a reduction.

  27. Robert Lenters

    I received a speeding ticket on a recent trip to Ellicottville, NY.
    The officer was polite and listened to my brief explanation. Since that was my first trip to Ellicottville, I was unfamiliar with the roads. So, I followed my friend. When the speed limit changed from 55 to 45, I slowed down and he did not. The officer likely recorded my friend’s pick-up truck and not my car. I believe I was going about 54 mph in that 45 zone. The officer had mentioned that he noticed the black pick-up truck my friend was driving, but he wrote me a ticket for going 60 in a 45 zone just the same.

    What is your fee for trying to reduce or eliminate this questionable speeding ticket?

    regards,

    Robert Lenters

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Robert, that is a 4 point speed and yes it is possible to reduce it, especially if you have a good driving record (though unfamiliarity with the roads is not an excuse which will lead to dismissal since speeding is strict liability which means your intent is not a required element for the prosecution to prove).

  28. Kyle

    Hello
    My wife received a ticket yesterday in the town of Oswego NY. 82 in a 65 route 17(86) East. 1180d.
    She told me that she was trying to pass an 18 wheeler which was weaving in and out of his lane. Unfortunately my wife was so nervous that she did not tell the trooper this information and admitted she was speeding which he quoted if course on the citation. Having a clean driving record up to this point, is there a possibility of contesting this violation? Thank you

  29. Mari Kolach

    I am going to court for my first speeding ticket tomorrow. I got pulled over doing 55 in a 40 on Western Ave in Albany. This is my first speeding ticket, and my first ticket of any kind. I’ve never even been pulled over before. I’m not quite sure what to do, do I plead not guilty and fight it? Does anyone have an approximate guess of what kind of fines (total) I’m facing?

  30. Linda

    I received a speeding ticket on Southern Parkway for going 80 in a 55mph (I was in the middle lane going 62 mph but the speed of traffic was much faster and I needed to get into the right lane to get off at the upcoming exit so I sped up to be able to get in the right lane between the cars). The trooper saw me first in the middle lane and then moving into the right and trying to get off at the exit because I was in the exit lane with directionals when he pulled me over….he asked me if I knew how fast I was going and I said maybe 62…he laughed and said nobody on the parkway was travelling at 62mph today. When he gave me the ticket he explained the 3 choices I had. Plead guilty by mail, plead not guilty by mail and wait for a court date…….and the third option to go down and try to get my fine reduced to something lesser. He actually seemed to be encouraging me to do so…and said he couldn’t swear they would because that isn’t his job but it was a good chance they would. He also told me I could hire a traffic attorney. It seemed he wanted me to fight it. Mind you I haven’t had a ticket in nearly 25 years. Would it be best to plead not guilty by mail and wait for a court date or should I go on the day and time printed to see if they might reduce it (he said they may even reduce the fine to not wearing a seatbelt). Of course I want the best shot of a reduced points and to pay the lowest fees.

  31. Katie

    I just got a ticket for driving 82 on a 65 highway on my way to relocate to Chicago…This is my first ticket….
    Since I am going out of state and most like not going back to NY….which way will be better?

  32. matt

    i got pulled over in tonawanda earlier and the cop cut me a break from a speeding ticket because i was honest with him and pulled aside seconds after he turned on and started following me, so he cited me for speed not reasonable or prudent. im 19 and this is my first ticket, im thinking of just pleading guilty, what do you think the average fine would be for it?

  33. laura d

    I just received a ticket for going 70 in a 55…this is my second ticket ever and it happened to be with in a year of my last one…am i doomed? Should i just plea guilty or go to court…my first ticket was reduced to a parking ticket with no points and traffic school…so does this technically count as my first ticket because the first was reduced to a parking ticket?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      It does not count in terms of points or suspension. However, the current ticket is 4 points so I would NOT suggest that you plead guilty.

  34. Mahmut

    Im 19 and from nyc, Ive never received a ticket before, a highway patrol gave me a summons for doing 61 in a 45 is there anyway I can get myself out of this?

  35. Cor

    Was pulled over in Rochester on 3/28 I was told I was speeding and then was given roadside DUI test including a breathalyzer after which the officer told me to get back in my car. I was then issued a speeding ticket for 45 in a 30 zone. The ticket is TVB jurisdiction and I have a Florida license. When I go to the given website and enter the ticket information it says it cannot find the information so I am unable to enter my plea. What would be the best way to handle this situation?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This carries 6 points, a max. fine of $393 + a $300 Driver Responsibility Assessment (assuming you have no other tickets within 18 months, otherwise the DRA will be higher).

  36. Hector

    I just received a speeding ticket for doing 89 in a 50 on the highway in NYC. How many points am I facing? Is there any way I can fight this ticket? I’ve never received a speeding ticket before in my life and the ticket says I need to appear in court. Thanks for any help.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is an 8 point ticket. In addition to the max. fine of $693 you would also be hit with a $450 DRA penalty. The reason for the personal court appearance is because it is a very high speed.

  37. You He

    I could not believe I got pulled over on my way to buffalo, 40minute till my destination. I had no clue why, until he gave me a ticket that’s say 67MPH, 55MPH zone. How is this even speeding?? I’ve been doing 70 max on 55, and 80 max on 65, and never got pulled over, that is there are actual polices setting traps. (I’m from PA). Should I plead not guilty? I never done so and have no clue. How much is attorney fee? Thanks for any info!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      That is a 4 point speed. The only way to avoid points is to challenge the speeding ticket in court. Our flat fee covers all the time we spend fighting your case.

  38. David

    I got a speeding ticket in a the town of my college after a 4 hour drive to get there. The ticket was a 42 in a 30. I am 19 years old and have never had a ticket. Should I fight the ticket? Or get a reduction form? I do not want my insurance company to find out. Will something get sent to my home address?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The only way to avoid points is to fight the ticket or hire an attorney to represent you in court. Generally court correspondence is sent to our offices directly if we are hired on a case.

  39. Al

    My father is an English citizen, and lives in England (I am a NJ resident). While in NY visiting, he was caught doing 84 in a 65 on I87 while driving my NJ registered car. Any way to avoid / reduce the fine (I assume points are not an issue). Because he was driving my car are there any possible repercussions for me?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      If you plead not guilty they will schedule it for court and he can speak to the prosecutor about reducing the penalty. There are no repercussions for you.

  40. Charles

    Hi! I just got a ticket for speeding in I-87 80 on 65mph, my last speeding ticket was on 2002. How long will they removed your points from you license/records? How much will be the fine? And how much will i have to pay if i hired a lawyer to represent me to fight this case as not guilty?

  41. Vishnu

    I got a speeding ticket on QUEENS BLVD for doing 49mph in a 30mph zone, however the officer mistaking wrote I was doing 49/50mph zone. Do I have a chance of fighting this ticket?

    Are there points added to speeding ticket if in a school zone?

    45 MPH in 20MPH limit

    e.g., $360 fine plus 4 point plus 4 more points???:

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is a 6 point offense and actually if it was during the school day the max. fine is actually $693 + a $300 Driver Responsibility Assessment.

  43. Kathryn M.

    All my previous speeding tickets have been reduced to parking tickets. All the fines have been paid and/or driving school attendance was completed. I have 0 points on my license and been given a form to fill out and submit explaining why a reduction should be granted. How do I “properly” fill out this form? Also, after all of this, what exactly does my driving record look like?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Kathryn,
      We need more information about what exactly you are being charged with. As attorney’s we can help keep your driving record clean and keep your auto insurance premiums low.

    I just recieved a speeding ticket west of Buffalo. Says I was doing 80 in a 65. All I was trying to do was get passed a semi that was going back and forth between his lane and mine while I was right next to him. Just as I finally passed him and about to pull back into my lane the trooper was sitting there and his lights came on and I was pulled over. I have no points on my DL and the trooper didn’t ask me a thing other than my DL, registration and if I’ve been pulled over recently in NY to which I truthfully replied “NO”. Should I send it in Not Gulity? Then what?

  45. Lolita

    I was caught speeding when it suddenly changed from 65 to 40 just before the Canadian border. I was busy looking for my passport and didn’t notice the sign until it was too late. He said I was going 76 (I had my cruise control set at no higher than 70) but he reduced it to 55. I have no prior violations, I am a Georgia resident and I understand that my state does not participate in the DLC. What would be the fine if I plead guilty or would it be better to fight it?

  46. Mallory Grader

    I got a speeding ticket today for 70 in a 55. The cop was moving and traveling in the opposite direction as me as I was going down a hill. He then proceeded to turn around and then pull me over a few minutes later. Is this legal ?? Im from new york state.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Mallory,
      An officer that issues you a speeding ticket is required to back it up in court and most times when they testify they will provide more facts as to what caused them to pull you over. You are looking at a 4 point ticket with substantial fines and costs to your insurance.

  47. NL

    Hello,
    I am a westchester county resident that got pulled over for speeding (47 in a 30 zone). I have had my license for 13 years with no violations. The area where I was pulled over was rural with no speed limit signs in Florida village, NY (upstate near harriman). I do not have a witness to testify on my behalf. I am due in court this evening. Do I stand a chance fighting this ticket?

  48. Donald

    New York – Queens: I got a speeding ticket for going 20 mph over the speed limit…my first speeding ticket…..and I paid the $203 fine then I was mailed a notice that I owe $300 additionally and got 6 points on my license. I was given the same punishment as a drunk driver. Is this finite?

  49. flower

    I was going “71″ on a 55 back road after getting out of work late. What can I do to get it reduced to a smaller offense?

  50. Maria Althea Escovilla-Groepler

    I have a clean driving record and it’s my first time to be pulled over by a police for speeding in a school zone. I am in a dilemma because I don’t know exactly what to do! I want to respond by mail and plead guilty just to get it over and done with but then, my husband said to wait and get more information on how to respond. This happened in White Plains, NY. Any advice will be much appreciated.

  51. Kimberly

    Hello, I’m a NJ resident who received a speeding ticket on the LIE in Huntington, Suffolk County going 80 mph in a 55. I guess it is a 6-point violation in NY and I get the 2 points per the NJ Driver License Compact. I currently have 2 points on my license for a moving violation in NJ. Is this any reason I should fight this ticket in NY? I guess the fees from NY would be somewhere around the $393 plus the $100/year for the 3 years. What would your fee be and would I have to take off work to go to court? Thanks!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The reason you should fight it in New York is because you have the chance of getting 0 points in NJ, plus you stand to save several hundred dollars in fines and auto insurance.

  52. Amanda

    Im 18 and got pulled over today for the first time doing 46 in a 30 or 16 mph over the limit. The cop was pretty nice about it but I have no idea what to do since it is my first ticket. Do I plead guilty or not guilty? Is there any classes I can take to reduce the points on my license? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You can take a class but that will not remove the points, only reduce them for suspension purposes. The only way to remove points is to fight the ticket or hire an attorney to fight it for you.

  53. Taylor

    I’m 17 on march 20 I will be 18 I want to get my license done but I’m afraid I won’t be able to, I have a probationary and I’m from nj I got pulled over in ny going 35 over 80 in a 45. I got my fine it but I haven’t paid it yet it was 643$ plus I have to pay 150$ every year for 3 years I payed the 150$ for this year. Anyway I got 8 points will this effect me from getting my nj regular license? Will I get suspended? And will it be that many points in nj as it is in ny?

  54. Will

    First time offense. Pulled over in a 5 zone going 77. had license for over 2yrs without getting pulled over till now. Got stopped buffalo NY and iI’m registered in NY.o

  55. Amber

    Please disregard my last comment. We found out that the court was charging him for his late father’s speeding ticket in 2010 (same name) Ridiculous. But the no reg was his from 2004. isnt there a statute for that? is it best to plea not guilty?

  56. Amber

    My husband has had his license suspended twice in the past two months for tickets that he knew that he has paid. One was for an expired reg in 2004 and one was for a speeding ticket in 2010. What is going on? He had to pay $70 last month to reinstate his license, and now he just paid $250 for the speeding ticket that he paid for in 2010. He had no notification, and his license has been clean for years. What is going on? I told him to call an attorney but he needs his license for his job so he is paying it with no contest. This is very upsetting. What can we do?

  57. Ryan Mangan

    I received a speeding ticket (1180-D) earlier today. I was caught by radar while following traffic on the highway, doing 76 in a 50mph limit. I currently have a Pennsylvania Drivers License in good standing, with no points and also a veteran. I was wondering if I should just plead guilty? Or try and lower the charge, this is my first speeding ticket in NY.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      I do not suggest you plead guilty as it can very well result in increased auto insurance rates. This is a 6 point offense with a max. fine of $383 + a $300 DRA penalty.

  58. timothy delaney

    I received a driver responsibility statement for $450 for a speeding ticket dating back to 2/23/12. The original assessment was for $150 and there has been a overdue assessment of $300. I am retired with a disability and living on a fixed income and this amount is way beyond my ability to pay. Is there anything I can do to lower this fine?

  59. Anonymous

    Maine driver doing 76 in a 55 zone near Plattsburgh (only other offense is also in NY doing 65 in a 40 – I had not seen the speed limit change – I think he put 55 and I plead guilty. I think the charge was around $300 or so if I remember right). It was totally unintentional- I was overtired and had the flu and needed to drive home that day because a snowstorm was coming the following day. I could have asked my brother to drive, but his right arm is in a sling. Anyway, I don’t really want to travel all the way back if I plead not guilty…I think for some reason I thought it was highway speed, and then it was also downhill, and I was talking to my brother and happened to look down just as a cop went by going the opposite direction. What is your advice? What will happen if I plead guilty? Thanks!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      If you plead guilty this is a 6 point offense with a max. penalty of $393 + a Driver Responsibility penalty of $300. Fortunately for you, if you hire an attorney you will NOT have to go to court.

  60. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    The chances are good; however with a high speed it is a more challenging case. We could not guarantee that the court would excuse your appearance but based on our past experience it is unlikely.

    My daughter just got a ticket doing 87 in a 55. She is 24 and a college student. We live on Long Island which is where she got the ticket. What are her options? Can we get a lawyer through your firm? If so what will it cost? Can you tell us the chances of a reduction or dismissal?

    Hey I live in New York and just got a speeding ticket for driving 86 on a 55 that is 31 miles over the speed limit, I was also driving with my permit but i had someone that was 21 next to me, what should I do? you think I can fight it and not get points added?

  67. Bianca Loftin

    Hey I currently have four points on my license and I just got a speeding ticket today going 75 at a 55 zone. So that’s four more points on my license. In Nassau they have plea bargains. Do you think they will lesson the charge.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Since you have 4 prior points you may have some difficulty which is why you should consider hiring an experienced attorney to fight for you.

  68. Matt

    I got my first ticket today for speeding. I was going 92 in a 55 should I to talk to the DA or get an attorney right away. 37 over, so 8 points. Can I get it reduced without a doubt?

    Connecticut license. First and only speeding ticket. In NY State. 95 in a 65 (I know really bad). College student. Should I be concerned about jail time or license suspension? Should I hire a lawyer to possibly get reduced charge or fight the ticket?

  74. Erica

    I got pulled over going 80 in a 65 on the thruway in westmoreland area, oneida county i think it was. the sub section said 1180D. the only other ticket i have on my record is parking on pavement from a reduced ticket for unreasonable speed, what are my chances of getting this ticket reduced with a lawyer? Also, the cop came up to my driver side window and I heard it was a new law that cops have to go to the passenger side window on the thruway..if that’s the case can this ticket just be dropped?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is a 4 point offense. I think you have a very good chance since you have a good driving record. I am not aware of that particular law but that has nothing to with the fact that you were speeding and does not form the basis for a dismissal.

  75. Jacqueline fondeur

    Hello I just got pulled over today doing 70 on a 50 speed limit On the belt pkwy in Brooklyn. .I currently have a Pennsylvania license…should I try and fight this or just plead guilty. ..

  76. Erin Anderson

    I was going 42 in a 25 in NY state. I was also caught for not having a license, and drinking under 21. However, the police report was only written for speeding. Should I plea guilty at event that the drinking/no license on me could get brought back up, or beacuse they didn’t write it originally should I just plea not guilty and go about this as a normal speeding ticket?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Without knowing more information, it seems like this would be handled like any other speeding ticket. You should speak to an attorney before you decide.

    The cop said I was doing 82 in a 65. He was heading southbound across the grass median, came across when he saw me, then told me he followed me for a while before pulling me over at that speed. Also I’m 17, but I turn 18 the last day I have before the ticket needs to be taken care of before I get penalized. What kind of fine am I looking at and what should I do?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is a 4 point speeding ticket with a max. fine of $393. If you want to avoid the points the only way is to fight your ticket (taking the driver safety course does NOT remove points).

    I was pulled over this morning on LIE, Suffolk County Police, on the HOV lane, the officer claims I was 84mph on a speed limit of 55mph. What should I do? How many points I could get? What would be the fine? Should I hire a lawyer? Thanks, argo

  82. Peter

    I got pulled over for doing 65 in a 55 on I-95 around Port Chester, NY. This is first speeding ticket ever. However, I do have 3 point from a few months ago for rolling past a stop sign. Therefore, I’m going to be at 6 points… What are my chances of fighting this? Speed was tracked by pace.

  83. Louise Larsen

    HI,
    I got pulled over in Keene Valley last Sunday on the southern end of the speed zone, .2 of a mile away from the 55 mph zone. I got a ticket going 51 in 35. Can you handle something in such a remote location and if not should I take the time off from work to go up there and try to get it reduced? I live in NJ and have an NJ diver’s license. My last speeding ticket was in 1991.
    Thanks,

    Recently, I was pulled over by cop and he said I was 61 on 40 on the road but I don’t think so. I plead not guilty
    and mailed to the court. I’m wondering about the outcome and any reduction about the charge. It was my first offense and my record otherwise clear.

  86. Kelly

    I got caught doing a 36 in a 20mph school zone in the city of Niagara Falls today at about 10:50am.
    I see a similar comment from earlier stating the max fine is $693 and 4 points.

    I am wondering if this is worth fighting or not?
    Would I really need an attorney or would a consult with the DA right before my court appearance be enough?

    Anything I should say to the judge in my defense? I work in the human services industry so would it be worth it to point out that I am generally a good Samaritan?

    If I get 4 points, would I be able to go to traffic school to get them to go away?

    If I was able to get it reduced, what is your best guess of what I am looking at points wise and fine wise?

    Thank you!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The question of whether or not to hire an attorney is one that should be carefully made. Contrary to popular belief, traffic school does not remove the points. All it does is give you a 4 point credit on your driving record.

    Hi, I just got a ticket today outside the Village of Dover Plains, N.Y.,( Dutchess County), The State Trooper said I was going 56 in a 35, She reduced the ticket to disobeying a traffic control device, do I fight it ? By the way, no way was I speeding , the guy in the car in front of me, flew by .I checked the speed limit in that area on my way home and it was posted at 55.

  88. Autumn

    2 tickets
    Date: 12/13
    Chester- I received a ticket for disobeying a traffic control device
    Date: 01/14
    Monroe- stopped on the high way for going 15 miles over the speed limit.

    First time for both
    What are my fines looking like ?
    And how does the payment process work?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      1110-a carries a max. fine of $243 and 2 points and a 15mph speed carries a max. fine of 4 points. However, once you hit 6 points you get an additional $300 surcharge from DMV.

      If you drive for a living and you might lose your job it’s evident that you should consider fighting the ticket even if the chances of success are low.

I was wondering what I should do

    Last year in June I got a speeding ticket going 69 in a 55 zone…..I just paid for it didn’t fight it…..however in the last month I got a ticket for talking on my cell phone and for going 75 in a 50mph zone…….what are my options here? What fines am I looking at and can I get them lowered.

  101. Shannon

    Do you handle Chemung Co/Elmira? And if you have already pleaded guilty to a ticket is there a way to reverse that? My boyfriend just was assessed 6pts on his license for speeding on the road by our house. The speed drops from 45 to 30 with no warning and the police love to set traps there. He was clocked at 50 I think and pleaded guilty. Received a fine (with the surcharge) of $192 plus the DRA $300 assessment. I was also stopped a few weeks after, going 49 the cop said. I had slowed down to 30 in that zone, then slowed way down for some deer crossing the road. Then kind of lost track of where I was, thinking I was still in the 45mph zone and he got me. He said he gave me a break on the ticket because I wasn’t paying attention, but I’m not sure what he meant and until I send it in with a guilty plea, I won’t know if there are points or what the fine is.

    Neither of us has ever had points on a license before and this is only my 2nd ticket ever–the last was 5 or 6 years ago.

    What should we do?

  102. Nicole

    Received my first speeding ticket in over 4 years, 84 in a 65, on the thruway into buffalo. I was in the right lane, not passing traffic, he did not ask me if I knew what he was pulling me over for, nor asked me how fast I thought I was going. Asked me if it was a rental though. Weird. It’s not so far to drive to court I guess, an hour maybe.

    I was charged with the following tickets:

    80 in 55 mph highway
    Unsafe passing
    Disobeyed traffic control device hov lane

    I was in i495 and passed a vehicle that was traveling near the slowest limit allowed and went to the 2nd hov lane where it opens up for vehicles to enter and merge in and passed the vehicle in front of me but ran out of room and drove slightly section where the white lines are slashed across.

    What am I looking for with all these if I plead not guilty..?

    I was pulled over by a state trooper did not clock me as he was driving all the way to the right lane and saw me passing and as I merged back on the the hov lane.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The first ticket is 6 points with a max. fine of $393, the second 3 points with a max. fine of $243 and the third a 2 point offense also with a max. fine of $243. In addition, 11 points carries a Driver Responsibility Assessment of $525.

Now saying I need to come down from Ontario to discuss plea with prosecutor and set date for court.

    long island
    i have a ticket pending for charging me at 90mpn in a 55mph zone
    however the ticket time told me to be there at 9pm and there is no such thing as court at 9pm so ….. does this make my ticket void and the cop stated that “visual estimate 90mph confirmed by pace 90mph passing light traffic”
    and my statement being to why he pulled me over “beccause i wasnt wearing my seatbelt?” and when he asked me how fast i was going i stated “65-70″ so … now i missed the court date and i am going to go in asap

    If thast ok then 45mph to 52mph its only 7mph..hope i can win …this case…

  114. IowaDriver

    Good afternoon. This morning I received an 1180-D ticket for 57 in a 40 zone just west of Westfield, NY on Highway 5. I was behind a pickup going the same speed, and came up and over a hill to find a state trooper sitting on the side of the road. When I saw him, I slowed down a bit, but it appeared the pickup kept going at his same speed. Naturally, because I was the rear car (a rental car at that), I got pulled over. I was not aware of the local speed limit as I am travelling through the area for business (from Iowa).

    Since I’m from Iowa, I naturally do not want to have to come back here to fight this. It has been close to 10 years since my last ticket (was in Iowa), and I have a CDL license. I have a National Safety Council defensive driver certification. I am also afraid this is going to tarnish my Iowa License, and my spotless insurance status.

    First, can you tell me what I would be looking forward to as a fine to my ticket? Also, do you see any way I could ask for a reduction in charge to 1180-A in the PLEA OF GUILTY ‘additional information’ lines when I return my citation?

    Thank you for your time and advice! It is awesome you provide this service to the public.

    Please help, I am not sure how fast I was going and just received a nyc ticket saying “speed in zone” and that is all no mention of my speed. Also this this officer was clearly a rookie. He never told me my speed or wrote a speed on my ticket. Can I beat this my estimation is between 70-80 in a 50 but that can be wrong as I did not look. Can you guys help me?

    I was pulled over for doing 83 in a 65. I was traveling down I 81 from Syracuse. I was traveling down a hill toward the town of Cortlandville when i saw the polic officer in the median. The infraction is 1180D Speed in Zone. The office that took my license and registraction was a female office but my ticket is signed by a male officer. Can i be ticked by someonw else than the one that pulled me over. Also, i live in MD and it is a 5 hour drive to go to court.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      It might be harder than you think to prove that the officer who issued the ticket was different than the officer who pulled you over. Regardless we have handled many cases in Cortlandville Town Court and can help you so that you do not have to come all the way from MD to appear in court.

    I am considering hiring one of the attorneys at this law firm to fight a speeding ticket I just received this past Saturday 2/1/14. I was stopped by a trooper on the I-87 around 11:15am. According to his radar (which he never showed me) I was going 87 on a 55mph zone. I was thinking of just pleading guilty but then saw the damage it can do to my license. I have had my license since I was 16 and am now 36 years old and never got a speeding ticket. I don’t want to risk the heavy pts and/or fines. I wanted to click on the link to view the payment options for hiring a lawyer here but the link isn’t working.

    I received a U-turn ticket. The description says U-turn in business district. For violation they wrote 405-b1. I was looking this up to find out how much the fine or points may be but could not find the correct violation for this code anywhere. I found violation 105 about business districts instead.
    Also ticket issued on 8:57am on Sunday, does this count as business hours?
    No signs about U-turns posted anywhere near this area on avenue u.

    If the cops wrote in the wrong violation code can the ticket be dropped?

    Thanks,
    Rk

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Yes, it is possible that if the officer listed the incorrect code the ticket would be dismissed in court. It is not likely to be dismissed automatically.

    I am an out of state resident staying in upstate ny for a few weeks. I have window tint at 35% and a license plate cover. I believe both of these are illegal in ny, my question is can i still be ticketed though with an out of state license/registration/insurance? thanks

    Hi, I’m a NJ resident who received a speeding ticket on I-87 in Wallkill. If it is a 4 or 6-point violation in NY, do I get the same number of points or do I get the 2 points per the Driver Licence Compact?

  121. sara

    I had a court date for my speeding ticket, I was there early and stayed 15 minutes after. But no one was there. What does that mean? do I need to call someone. I am positive I was at the right place at the correct time and date as well

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      It happens quite often that when a police officer sets a plea deadline on the ticket that he makes a mistake and that is not an actual court session which is probably what happened. You should probably call the court to resolve.

    Hello

    I just got pulled over for driving down a service road doing 44 in a 30 allegedly! I know for a fact I wasn’t doing more then 40 and then the officer tells me he estimated more then that but decided to put 44 smh! Please tell me how I should proceed further!

    Thanks

    Hello,
    I got a speeding ticket last Tuesday for going 48mph in a 35mph in Ripley, New York. The ticket says “speed in zone” and I N was never informed of how much I have to pay. I’ve been looking around for two days now trying to find out how much I have to pay. I live in Pennsylvania, so I dont know if that’ll take off points as well. Any idea how much I’ll pay charge wise?

  124. Johanna Soriano

    What is the fee for your service ? My ticket is a speeding ticket doing 70 in a 50 mi.zone Thank you

    A friend was ticketed in NYS today for “no distinctive plate/insecure/dirty” which has a section 4021 next to it, in a rural town outside of Rochester NY. The question here is, What is the fine? And what is the surcharge? There is no fine amount listed, and after several internet searches to find a general fine category for either 4021 or for the words “no distinctive plate/insecure/dirty”, he asked my opinion. I have no idea. I did an hour of googling, and I can’t find any specific or general fine for this either. Any idea?

  127. Caitlin

    Hi – I was issued a ticket for apparently going 71 in a 55 on Rt.12 near Utica. I live in CT (about 3 1/2 hours away from Utica) and am thinking of just paying the fine however no clue how much it’s going to be. Even though I’m from CT do I still get points on my license? I have such a clean record it sucks I got this ticket! Thanks!

  128. imran

    Hi, I just got back from Nassau County court where I just paid a fine for going 90 on a 55. My fine was reduced from 8 points to 4 points, and an $800 charge was reduced to $450. The judge suspended my license for one month. I have two questions.

    First one is, will the license plates be suspended of the car I was driving even if I don’t own it and if I am not on the insurance of the car?

    Second question is, the judge said to expect to hear from Albany because I was going 90 on 55. What does that mean exactly to hear from Albany?

  129. hojin

    Hi Adam,
    i got a speed not reasonable & prudent, it was snowing and i hit the middle median with my car,
    should i plea guilty and if i do what much is the fine and do i get points?

  130. Veronica Bonnet

    Hello – I recently got a ticket on 87 in the town of woodbury. The officer said he was only writing me for parking/standing on a highway (this was nice). Now I am going to plead guilty and send the ticket in but there is no fine indicated. The court website says they set the fine after you plead guilty. I am not sure what to expect. Should I send it in or is there a risk I will have a huge fine? Please advise.

    Thank you so much

  131. Tiffany

    Hi my husband sent in a not guilty plea to disobeying a tcd he recieved a letter in the mail stating that if the officer had given him a roadside reduction from a higher charge that the deputy can withdraw his charge and amend it back to the original stop charge . The officer had originally claimed that he was speeding but didn’t have it on radar as he was pacing him when asking office how he knew what speed because he wasn’t speeding the office ignored and then stated he Hadent stopped at the stop sign he was just at.. Question is can they actually amend it back to speeding?

  132. Danielle

    Hello,
    I received a ticket on 490, in Rochester, which means tvb, 62 in a 40. I was denied a deposition with the officer, not only that but I have a laser and radar detector, which I know works, which never went off. I was the last car in a line of 6. I was in the left lane with a long line of cars in the right lane. My belief is that my car wasn’t the one hit with the laser but the first car in line. But because I was denied the deposition I can’t prove anything. Also my court date has been moved 2 times, then a third by me when there was a death in the family. My right to a fat and speedy trial and all of that…
    I have no idea if I’m grasping at straws but I would appreciate some advise

  133. Nicole

    I got a ticket last week when I was traveling through the town of Ticonderoga on st rt 74. I was coasting down a big hill (not on the gas at all) after I had passed a semi and a cop was waiting at the bottom. He said he clocked me going 77 in a 55. However, when he issued me the ticket, he showed me that he was officially charging me with 70 in a 55 to reduce fines a bit (but also took a pic of the 77 he clocked me at and gave that to me as well.) I have one other ticket on my record from over a year ago that was reduced to a moving violation. I’m not from anywhere near Ticonderoga and I really don’t want to have to show up in court, but I also don’t want the implications with pleading guilty on my record. If I show up in court, is there a decent chance I’ll have it reduced further, or should I cut my losses and be satisfied with the 7mph he already took off my ticket. Would there be a chance the court raises it back to the 77 if I showed up in court. I’m also a college student and don’t have a bunch of money to throw around.

  134. Matthew

    I am a CDL driver from the state of PA. I was recently issued a speeding ticket doing 43 in a 30 mph zone in Mount Morris, NY. I had just entered the speed zone and the officer did not even give me sufficient time to slow down. Big rigs can’t slow down as quickly as a normal car can. Can you help me?

  135. Nigel

    I received a speeding ticket about 10 years ago when I was travelling to NY state from Canada. I forgot to pay it then was recently reminded of the incident and it occurred to me that I should probably rectify that. I don’t have the ticket or information on what to do or how to proceed. Any thoughts?

    I live outside of Rochester, NY.

    My son received a ticket for overtaking a stopped school bus.

    I called the school transportation and asked if there was a bus stop at the time and place this offense allegedly occurred. (Time was 8:38 am and the offense allegedly occurred within 500 feet of the school.) The transportation department told me there was no bus stop at that intersection at that time.

    The ticket specifically states that the offense occurred at an intersection, the supporting deposition states east of the intersection. Is this discrepancy grounds for dismissal?

    The town attorney refused to offer a plea deal, my son plead not-guilty. Trial date will be sent in the mail.

    Can I represent my adult (He is 19) son in court?
    What is the maximum fine if he is found guilty?
    What is the cost of your firm to represent him?

    I need this information in order to make the decision to hire an attorney, represent him myself, or let him represent himself.

    I have 5 children and money is tight.

    An answer in email works for me.

    Hi,
    I got a speeding ticket in early December for 72 in 55mph and stupidly (my fault) got another for 35 in a school zone (third care back following traffic including school bus). My questions is what am I looking at for fines and points? Court for 72 in 55 is this week and school is next week. Starting to get more nervous.

    Hi, I just got a ticket 1180b on LIE495 new york for 87/55, which is 32mph over state limit. I am aware of the violation can get me up to $600 fine and 8 points. This is my first moving violation ever, so I would like more advice on it please. What are the chances that I can get it dismissed just by paying the fines only? Thank you!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    I was driving down taconic state parkway and a cop was driving ahead of me, I was going between 60-65mph. The cop slowed down and got behind me for a few minutes then finally turned on his lights and pulled me over. He asked for my license and registration. Then asked me how fast I was going which I replied 60-65mph. He then said he clocked me at 70mph on radar. He issued me a ticket for driving 70 in a 55mph zone.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    My boyfriend got a ticket on the 2nd, the weather was horrible and the roads were not plowed. He was given a ticket for speed unreasonable and not prudent. He was going 20 mph down a hill that was not plowed until after he crashed and lost control hitting the guard rail. where he impacted the guard rail the cars all smashed up and then there is a small scratch down the side of the car if he had been going faster then stated when he lost control the scratch down the side should have been significantly bigger. The Officer arrived on scene and was complaining about the low temps -5 degrees and how long it was taking to get a tow. Once the tow was arranged he issued my boyfriend the ticket. When the tow got there my mom dropped my boyfriend off and we went to wait at the bottom of the hill. Well my boyfriend left his keys in the car I was in so he called me to bring them back. When the tow driver asked for his keys and he said he left them in the other car the cop responded with you have to be F’ing kidding me. My boyfriend then had us bring him the keys and we were all on our way. The ticket states it was issued based on belief and information given. Well the information the cop was given was the same information I gave u but the first thing outta his mouth was the roads are plowed. I was not there so its my boyfriends word against the cops. On top of that when the cop filled out the ticket he put my boyfriends old address down and didn’t put the new address which is on the back of his license and had been filed through the dmv. we don’t know if we should fight this or just pleed guilty.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Melissa,

  142. Gabriel Ruiz

    I just moved to CT from Florida. I was driving back to CT from NJ. I got a ticket on the highway. The officer said I was going 91 in a 65. Iwas going along with traffic so I doubt I was going 91. Nevertheless, The ticket did not have how much I am supposed to pay. Just a guilty or not guilty plea. What should I do?

  143. Todd

    I live in Massachusetts and went to see relatives yesterday and I received a ticket (1180B) for doing 72 in a 55. I was NOT doing 72 but actually doing 65. The officer was in a moving vehicle traveling East and I was heading West. I noticed him as I was traveling down the road, I did notice that he put his Left Blinker on but he never turned on his lights. I lost site of the officer (as he did me for approximately 5 minutes) I traveled nearly 2 miles and actually pulled into my cousins home and turned off the engine when he pulled up behind me. His Flashing lights were on when he pulled in but never turned on his Siren. There are a couple of questions I have.

    a. The name on the ticket provided to me is incorrect. As an Example. If my name is John William Smith, the officer entered John W. William as my name (Last Name of Smith is not on the Ticket). My Last Name is not on the Ticket.

    b. It says DIRECT OBSERVATION, is it possible that seeing that after we passed each other, and then he lost sight of me for an extended period of time, is it actually DIRECT OBSERVATION? Then he indicated that my speed was by Radar, Model Stalker Dual?

    c. Initially, when the 2 officer’s approached me, I asked why and they indicated I was doing 74/55 but the ticket said 72/55. Without having direct visual contact, how can he know for 100% Surety that my Silver Toyota Corolla was the same vehicle?

    d. I have NO TICKETS on my Drivers License (Clean) and it has been 5+ years since any moving violations.. I know I was not doing 72 or 74, but I was doing 65…

    Any assistance would be helpful. The ticket was issued in the Town of Amsterdam, Montgomery County.

  144. Christina

    I got pulled over in Orange County NY (Wallkill) and have a court date on January 6. It was a speed in a work zone 82/65. I was in a rental car that is much newer than my own and I did not realize how fast I was going. What am I looking at here and what are my chances of getting this reduced. I am looking to do this on my own since I am a broke college student and I have no money for an attorney :( Thank you for your input

  145. Hannah

    I just received a summons for disobeying a stop sign. I genuinely would have stopped at the sign but my windows were foggy and I was fiddling with the controls to fix the problem and I didn’t even realize I had passed the sign. The officer said I was also speeding (54 in a 30) but he didn’t write me a ticket for that, only a summons regarding the stop sign. What kind of fines and other penalties to I face?

    Assuming the penalties wouldn’t be a big deal I started filling out the Guilty Plea on the back of my summons and put a nice X through the Not Guilty section. Because the officer didn’t cite me for speeding I assume it would be best to plead guilty to one charge than to fight it and get slapped with both charges. Is this the best move?

  146. Katie Farrell

    I got pulled over in Rockland county, Orangetown NY for going 60 in a 50. What are the max penalties and fines and do I have a chance to fight it on my own? My actual speed was around 75, and the cop was giving me a break by dropping it down to 60 so does that effect my chances?

  147. sam

    Hi i just received a speeding ticket 1180D. 70 in a 45 based on direct observation and speed verified by PACE. all my information is correct expect vehicle make, is this grounds to get the ticket dismissed?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      An error of that nature is not enough unless you can convince a judge that the officer got the wrong vehicle which is unlikely since he got all other information correct.

  148. Ali Malhi

    I am a NJ driver got puller over in Ellisburg NY today at 81/65 which is 16miles over speed limit. I am planning to plea not guilty and need traffic defense attorney to represent my case.

  149. Tracy Garrow

    On 11-2-13, at 7:53 PM, I received an 1180D ticket for speeding, 87 in a 65 zone in the town of North Harmony, purportedly by radar. It was rainy and dark, and difficult to see, so I was not paying as close attention to my speedometer as I normally do – not wanting to take my attention from the road even for a moment. Additionally, I am from FL, so I was not familiar with the area and curvatures of the road.

    I had not increased the pressure on the gas pedal, so I had assumed I was safely still doing close to the speed limit. I then panicked when I realized I was on a long, gradual slope, so I immediately took my foot off the gas, and tried to safely slow down; however, it was too late to keep from getting a ticket. The officer was conveniently sitting at the bottom of the slope – no doubt a calculated move to capitalize on even unintentional speeders like myself.

    When the officer told me how fast I was going, I was shocked. I had quickly glanced down at my speedometer as I removed my foot from the gas pedal, and I saw I was above the speed limit, but not near the speed the officer said I was going.

    When I got back to FL, I called my mechanic to see about getting my speedometer checked. He had recalled that I had new tires put on before my trip, and was concerned that his technician had possibly put on tires that were incorrectly sized for my truck. His suspicion turned out to be fact, so he wrote a letter to the court admitting his shop’s mistake.

    I sent the shop’s letter in with my plea of guilty as instructed by the court (as per a phone call to them). They sent back a letter saying that I pleaded not guilty, and gave me the opportunity to determine whether or not I was eligible for a reduction. I do qualify since I have been driving for a LONG time and have a spotless record, but the best they will do is to drop it to a 2 point moving violation.

    I did some research, and I found out that FL will determine the amount of points that will go on my license – not by how many points are put on it by another state, but by the offense; therefore, I am not certain if FL will recognize the point reduction. I also found out that FL will not allow me to go to traffic school for an out-of-state ticket.

    Do you know if the actual offense I am charged with will be reduced? Do you think you would be able to get my sentence reduced even more and/or turned into an offense that FL doesn’t recognize as one, such as talking on a cell phone? What is your success rate?

    Also, I had tried to “Click here” from above to determine what your fee will be, but the link did not work.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi. There is a pretty good chance that the plea offer won’t get any better. Just be careful because I am told that 1110a is actually 4 points in Florida (I cannot advise you since I am not admitted to practice law in FL). However, if you hire a skilled attorney he might be able to negotiate an alternate plea that won’t be as damaging.

  150. Dennis

    Was pulled over and told I was doing 94 in 55 by NY State Trooper. They performed DUI test which I passed without issue. They handed my license back and did not issue a ticket or citation or warning of any kind.

    Should I expect a ticket in the mail? Or was I “let go” ?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      In New York, a ticket must be served personally. Therefore, if you were not handed a ticket, chances are they will not deliver one to your home personally. But, it is possible.

  151. Joshua

    I received a ticket for speed not reasonable and prudent tonight after leaving work around 1am. I was giving a co-worker a ride home and when passing a bar there were a lot of police officers parked outside in the road double parking cars on he street. I slowed down and manuevered around the cop cars and after passing them all sped back up to the speed limit. I approached a stop light and a police car pulled up behind me, the light turned green I proceeded and as soon as we cleared the light the cop pulled me over. He approached my car asked for my liscense, I gave it to him and asked what I did wrong politely and he responded with “you don’t need to speed off after you pass a bunch if cop cars like that” I told him I simply sped back up to the speed limit and never exceeded the speed limit and he agreed and replied “it doesn’t matter, speed not (fumbled for words for a second or two) reasonable and prudent for road conditions” I said the road condition is barely wet right now he replied with “I’m not gonna argue your getting a ticket!” And went to his car. Returned and gave me a ticket and told me reasonable speed is determined by the officer observing at the time. I never sped once and didn’t floor it and speed off at any time . Is this a bs ticket because the officer was excited about the fight he just broke up? Can I get it dropped? I didn’t do anything wrong and shouldn’t have to pay a fine because he was all adrenalined out. Please help! Thanks!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Speed Not Reasonable and Prudent (VTL 1180a) can often be a subjective judgment call. While you are sure you did nothing wrong, it may be the police officer’s opinion that the way you increased your speed especially in the presence of several police cards, was unreasonable for the current road conditions.

  152. Sean Gerasimowicz

    I was pulled over last night for doing 58 in a 35. I don’t believe I was goingthat fast. He also pulled me over an entire bridge and nearly 4 streets/turns later. He just followed me at first. What should I do?

  153. EUGENE SURIS

    RECEIVED A TICKET FOR 68 IN A 50 ON THE BELT PKY. HE WROTE IT OCCURED ON E/B BELT PKY AND 82ND ST. THERE IS NO 82ND ST ANYWHERE ON BELT PKY, NOR DOES IT INTERSECT THERE. COULD THIS BE A REASON FOR DISMISSAL?

  154. Brian

    I was just pulled over just outside of Oswego, just 3 miles from where I reside returning my wife from a dental appointment. I was passing a vehicle that had excessive snow blowing off the top of it. I was apparently radared at 71 in a 55, when shortly after a cop with excessive speed came up behind me and I got over immediately and then he hit his lights. I explained the situation and that I was going with traffic other than when I was passing a vehicle that was blinding me, and that I am recently out of the military and that my wife is now stationed up here. Last month I also spend over 150$ getting registered in this state so I could drive legally and updated my insurance as well.

    The cop made me and my wife wait over a half hour on Christmas Eve before giving me a ticket for going 71 in a 55. He quoted me saying “71 Really? I was just going with traffic”. I have a clean record and never had a ticket in my life. I’m not sure what this is going to cost but I am extremely upset at the situation. I am working with the VA and trying to get a job as I am a recently disabled veteran. I don’t have the money to pay unnecessary fines…

    Hi, I just received a speeding ticket 1180D going 50 in a 30 limit. It was 1:45 AM and normally people drive at that speed in normal hours. But somehow I was caught as no car was there on the road.
    Should I plead guilty or not guilty?

    Please advice…..

    Hi. I just got a speeding ticket in Wayland. I was going 81mph at 65mph zone. Since I am a college student, the fine of more than $300 is a big sum of money and I don’t think I can afford it. What should I do?

  157. Bozidar

    Hey, I just got a ‘reckless driving’ ticket. I did a burnout in a public parking garage. The cops didn’t see me but they said that they heard it. I’m 16, this is my first ticket and my record is clean. What’re the consequences that I could face? I live in Virginia, I know this is for New York but I couldn’t find any other site so if you could give me feedback that would be great! Thanks!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Reckless driving (VTL 1212) is a crime which means if convicted you would have a permanent criminal record in NY. In addition to a substantial fine and potential jail time, there are 5 points associated with this offense.

    Hi, I just received a speeding ticket 1180D going 66 in a 45 limit Prospect Expressway. I know it’s at least $300-400 (ticket, surcharge, DRA) and 6 pts. Should I plead guilty or not guilty?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Well it depends. If you don’t mind paying those penalties, receiving 6 points, and a potential insurance hit – plead guilty. Otherwise if you want to fight it out – let me know. We can provide a free consult.

    Received a ticket for going 76 in a 65mph zone on I-86 between Corning and Olean. I was driving a lettered company Kia Van. Do I receive points in PA if I plead guilty. Thanks.

    First speeding ticket doing 92 in a work zone of 40 in Staten Island. I know I was speeding but I couldn’t have possibly been going that fast. Was not pulled over in the work zone. The work zone has so many extreme potholes. No way was I going that fast my car would have fell apart before they could pull me over. I was pulled over on the Staten Island expressway btwn Victory blvd and exit 5. First off, is there hope? What are the options? Second is do I personally have to appear or can the attorney appear for me?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is an 11 point Work Zone speed which means you will be suspended if you plead guilty. There is hope because an experienced trial attorney may be able to beat the case at trial (they do not negotiate points in Staten Island) and you would NOT have to appear if you hire counsel.

    I don’t know what the speed limit is, but I was driving on Northern-Parkway on LI, going west. I was stopped by an officer, between exits 22 and 21. When he stopped me, he said I was going 72 mph in a 55 mph speed limit zone, (hopefully). I was going to my school early, because I had to take a finals exam that started at 9:05 A.M., and was rushing. There was traffic in front of me, and so I was beginning to stop, but the officer took my speed before. This is my first ticket, but I’m concerned if I will have my license suspended. He said 72, but I wasn’t checking.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      72/55 is a 4 point speed so it won’t mean a suspension unless you have 7 other points. However, you should still consider fighting it due to the heavy penalties and potential auto insurance consequences.

    Hi
    My mother is 80 and never had a speed in Clifton Park NY
    She got a speed for going 80 mph in a 65. She was on her way home from upstate NY to her house in Brooklyn,
    She fought the ticket and now they want her to take the DDC
    Trouble is she has physical problems – trouble with her back sitting in a classroom for 8 hours is not an option and we tried the on line course – she is not computer literate – though she can learn she just doesnt want to – she’s very old fashioned that way and I respect that. I live in NH, came down just to help her through the course and my laptop got a virus or something from the download. She completed the voice recognition part but once the course got started my laptop got bombarded with pop-ups even with the pop up blocker turned on.
    I think it’s unfair that she has never had a violation and the first on she gets, she fights, and now they want her to do he course just because she is old.
    She rarely uses the car, just local errands and one trip a year upstate and back. Her vision and reflexes are fine otherwise she wouldn’t be driving.
    If she just pays the $693, will they waive the DDC requirement?
    I feel so bad that some of our elderly are low tech living in high tech worlds. It does feel that they are at a disadvantage.
    Can you help?
    Thanks,
    Laura C.

    So i’m 19 years old and I just got a speeding ticket for doing 50 in a 30, hence 4 points. The speeding ticket happened going down a huge hill. Underhill Ave in Queens, NY to be exact. By Kissena park. I dont care for fines, I do care for the points and the impending doom on my insurance. Honestly, is it worth fighting? Would pleading not guilty possibly make an impact?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      It is worth fighting if you want to avoid the points. Pleading not guilty preserves your right to your day in court to fight the ticket. While the chance of success is modest, it’s the only way to potentially avoid the points. If you plead guilty the points will be automatically applied.

  164. David

    Hi,
    I got stopped for doing 79 in a 65 zone. They “let me off” with a “failure to comply with a speed device” or something that they said would lessen my fine. I just got a ticket for 150+93$. Would I have been better off with the speeding ticket?
    Thanks

  165. G

    Hey i got a ticket almost a month ago around syracuse on my way to fort drum. I was doing 84 on a 65 mph zone. The trooper told me that i had to send it in the mail and wait for the court to send me the fine back. I havent gotten anything back and just want get this ticket over with. So is there a way i can pay it through the phone or something. I really want to just pay it cause its stressing me out. Please help.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Since the max. penalty is 6 points and a max. fine of $693 I’d say it’s worth fighting. It will be hard to rebut the officer’s testimony even if you have a witness and he got the color wrong. That’s why a settlement would be your best option.

  166. gregory

    hi i have ilinois license
    i received speeding ticketin suffolk county

    Hi,
    I just got a speeding ticket over 55 zone in westchester county . On December 7th 2013. The ticket says that I was going 81 on 55 zone . My license is from New Jersey.
    The officer said that if play guilty I will pay the fine and no point for being out of state.
    That’s true?
    Also , how much are the fines ? I should fight it?
    Thanks

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is why you should never take legal advice from a police officer. NJ will assess 2 points for any out of state moving violation which could lead to increased auto insurance (New Jersey has the highest auto insurance in the country!).

  168. Veronika

    Hello, i just got a speeding ticket today: 71 mph in 50 mph speed zone, violation 1180D. As i understand the penalty is $300 and 6 pnts on my license. should i go to court to fight this? would it do me any good? what is my best case scenario in this situation? obviously i was speeding, how cam i plea not guilty? also, i’ve noticed some of the answers from the lawyers on this site to the people with the same situation as mine were stating a fine of $693. if the ticket is $300, court $88-93 (does it matter if i go or not?), then where’s the extra $300 comes from? Help me find the best resolution to this problem. Thank you,

    Veronika

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      In the US we have a system of “innocent until proven guilty” which means the prosecution has to prove their case, so you have the right to mount a defense even if you know you were guilty. The amounts are different in the Traffic Violations Bureau than in the rest of the state since they are not officially a court, rather part of an administrative agency (DMV).

  169. Blake

    i got a speed ticket on Nov. 27. I wanna know that my license is issued from michigan state.
    And i doing 86 in 65 zone. Should i still pay for $300 for collecting 6 points in 6 months?
    Furthermore, how much is my tickets fines?
    Thank you very much.

  170. alliet

    My 17 yr old dtr has NJ provisionary licence. She will b 18 in Aug of 2014. She received a speeding ticket for doing 74 in a 50 in Staten Island of NY. I understand that she will receive an additional 2 points on her NJ license just because in addition to the amount of points NY will give. Also I understand she must enroll in a provisionary drivers program to the tune of $100 . What are her worse case scenarios all around including points/fines? The only plus is that she received ticket in the afternoon. If she received it after 11pm it wud have been worse.
    Will her license be suspended? Can I fight in person to reduce points or just plead guilty?
    Thank you.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Since this is TVB the max. fine is $203 + a $300 Driver Responsibility Assessment and 6 points in NY (which means if she gets another 5 within the next 18 mo. she will lose her NY driving privileges. There are no plea bargains in NYC but we can still fight it.

  171. Aleasa Dominiak

    Hello,
    I received a speeding ticket in Genesee County on 11/13/13, for allegedly doing 76 in a 55.
    Can you tell me what the fine and points will be? Should I fight it? I don’t think I was going 76, but I was over the speed limit. The officer was polite, told me he didn’t want me to hit a deer going 76 mph. (?)
    It was 4:00 in the afternoon. I was a half a mile from home. My license is clean.
    Thanks for your help.

    Was driving back home on Thanksgiving break and was given a ticket for doing 82 on 65 as it says on the ticket. My response was “The music was loud so I didn’t realize I was going that fast”. Should I fight this? Will that quote be used against me in the court?

  173. Mike H.

    Hello Mr. Rosenblum,
    My friend and I were driving on our University campus to my apartment, he was going 30 in a 15. We were pulled over and given a “speed not reasonable and prudent” ticket by campus police. We went to court today (Amherst, New York) and it seemed that the DA turned everyone’s speeding ticket, including my friend’s, into parking violations because all I herd was parking violations being issued. The fines for these parking violations ranged from $80 – $170 with a $25 surcharge; my friend got $125 plus the $25 surcharge. This was his first offense as well as he has only been in the US for a few months. I was wondering if you could please explain to me the events that transpired? Also what constitutes the range for the parking violation fine that is really a speeding ticket?
    Thank you very much for your time and have a happy Canukah!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is called a “plea bargain” and is a common way of settling a case in traffic court. The fine on the parking violation is a range depending on which specific parking violation they pled guilty to.

  174. Kelly Palumbo

    My son was driving back to University of Vermont from near Pittsburgh PA after Thanksgiving break yesterday and got a speeding ticket in Ticonderoga, NY. 77 in 55 zone. It says “direct observation” and verified by “radar”. A copy of the ticket does not say he received a “supporting deposition”. He has no other tickets or violations and is 19 yrs old. Can/should we fight this? Thanks!

  175. Mike

    Recently got a speeding ticket, 77 in a 55. When the officer asked how fast I was going, I replied “About 75.” That statement is on the traffic ticket. So I admitted guilt. Is it still possible to plead Not-Guilty and still get a deal?

  176. Dennis

    Hello Adam. Last night my son was ticketed for two offenses. He didn’t see a one way sign when he properly turned down a local street in Harrison, NY, but when he got halfway down the street he decided to make a U-turn. A police officer saw this and pulled him over. We don’t live in Harrison, but my son recently started working there and is still unfamiliar with the town. The police officer was pretty rough with him and accused him of being drunk. The officer said that if he didn’t let him search the car he would arrest him. My son did not drink yesterday and worked a 9 hour shift at a supermarket. The police offices found a dry empty beer can in the rear pouch behind the front seat that was left there a week prior by one of my son’s stupid friends. So the police officer gave him a second ticket for an open container. The police officer said if we went to court we could get the tickets reduced to parking tickets. Can you help with this? Can you estimate my costs for the fines and your fees? Thanks, Dennis.

  177. Wendy

    Hello,
    I was pulled over in Queens New York. I was ticketed for doing 51mph in a 30mph zone. Ca you please tell me how much I have to pay? How many points this will be on my license? And for how long I’m gonna keep this points on my license…Thanks.

  178. Dino Kattato

    Good morning-
    I received a speeding ticket on I90 yesterday via direct observation radar for 80 in a 65, at 1480 feet. My cruise was (and always is) set at 70. And this will probably sound cliche, but.. at the time this occurred, a small gray car zipped by me on the left. I believe we both saw trooper moving at same time. The car pulled in front of me, and slowed down. I get pulled over, said I was tagged as above.

    I’ve never had a traffic violation. My record is clean all the way around. I wish to plead not-guilty, and was going to send an abstract of driving record, the speeding ticket and an imploring letter to the Montgomery County DA, asking for reduction in/dropping of charges, and to hopefully take care of this via email/phone. Is this a desirable approach? Or is having representation a better option?

    Thank you for your time-

  180. Laurie Buscaino

    My 19 yr old daughter rcvd a speeding ticket on ST 17 in October 2012…Mamatkating Town Court …100 in a 55…the atty… I work for… has been handling this poorley and I am not sure what I face…thinking of hiring a new atty. She went to court in Nov 2012 was offered 80 in a 55 which she refused. Atty she was with advised that. Now after many rescheduled dates we have a new court date Dec 19, 2013. At the time she had a stalker and she believed that it was him chasing her after a traffic incident and became hysterical …she knew her father and I were 20 minutes away and was trying to get to us. ( this person is now in jail for violating an order of protection we have against him ) She was pulled over by a state trooper and the other car pulled in right behind her. She was the only one given a ticket.( other car was a local fireman ) What will she face ?

    Hi I payed off two tickets both 3 points for disobeying traffic rules. Can I still hire a lawyer to fight it. Happened in ny.

  182. Derek

    Hello,
    I was pulled over on the New York State Thruway. I was ticketed for doing 81mph in a 65 mph zone. I am from Massachusetts. When the police officer gave me the ticket, he stated that it would just be for the fine and that because I am from out of state, there would be no points on my Massachusetts license. From what I am seeing on your website, that does not appear to be the case. I dont know why he would have specifically told me that (especially since I didnt ask about points) but I am just wondering if that is true. I assumed since there were no points added to my license (according to the police officer at the time) that my insurance wouldn’t increase either. Can you shed some light on this? Thanks.

  183. Abel

    Hi,
    Yesterday i got a VTL unsafe lane change ticket. How many points will this be on my license? How much is the fine for this offense? Ive heard good things about your firm:-)

  184. Matthew

    I was pulled over in Colonie NY for doing 54 in a 40. the officer told me before he wrote the ticket that he got me going at 52 and than came back with a ticket which he proceeded to drop into my lap and told me to have a nice night and went back to his car. i drove away and got back to work and was looking over ticket and he put down 54 in a 40. I have been ticketed once already for 78 in a 55 on 890 N by a state trooper and got 4 points but than took defensive driving to drop the 4 points. what am I facing for fines for my 54 in a 40? and should I try and fight for a possible parking on pavement or something alone those lines where there’s no points involved? thanks, Matt

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The max. fine is $393 and your two problems are (a) the course does NOT remove the points, just gives you a credit so the prosecutor for the new ticket will still be able to see the conviction; (b) the course does not affect the DRA penalty so if you have 8 points you will be hit with a $450 penalty on top of the $393 fine.

  185. Justin

    My brother was just in an accident last night. He was heading down the road and lost control of te vehicle due to the bad weather and went off the road and rolled the vehicle. He was given a ticket 1180A speed not reasonable & prudent. How can he receive a ticket for this when no one was around to witness his speed? And also is there any way to fight this ticket to be dropped or lowered? If not how many points/price will this be?

  186. John

    Goin to my nieces wedding back in may of this year i was pulled over by a state trooper on the NY thruway for speeding (97/65). i live in Massachusetts. judging by reading the comments and your replies, it looks like the points on my license will increase? i plead guilty by mail seeing that i live 200 miles away… was this a major mistake on my part? is there any way i can reverse my decision? i have to pay 285 by december 10.. gonna effect my Christmas for sure…. thank you

  187. Sue

    My daughter received a speeding ticket for going 86 in a 55 on Route 81 – just before the PA border. What are the chances of fighting this and bringing the fine down and possibly the points, as well. This section of 81 went from 65 to 55. Does that help her defense at all? Thank you.

  188. Mark

    Mr. Rosenblum, I received a ticket for Unreasonable Speed/Special Hazards 1180E in my hometown of Troy, NY. Officer stated that I proceeded through an intersection too quickly and charge carries 3 points. The supporting deposition given to me with the ticket states the charge is based on “direct observation.” There is no documented speed or radar reading. My license is clean and I was operating a company vehicle. I did not admit guilt and the section of the deposition where the officer documents what you stated to him is blank. I mailed in a “not guilty” plea along with a recent copy of my clean DMV Abstract and letter respectfully asking for the charge to be reduced to a non-moving which carries no points. Have I put any foot wrong here? What can I expect next?

  189. Brittany

    I received a ticket for having a dirty license plate due to a bumper sticker being placed in a wrongful area. I have court Tuesday, and I was just wondering a couple of things. On average how much does it cost? The officer said points will not be added to my license and my insurance company will not find out, is that true? And should I plead guilty or not guilty in order for my insurance to not find out? I had never heard of this before but I’m not sure how to plead not guilty. But as I read above if I plead guilty I will have points on my license and my insurance will go up, so is what the trooper told me false? I am just confused on how I should plead in order for what he said to be accurate. I appreciate any response you could give me to maximize my preparation for court Tuesday afternoon. Thank you

  190. rudyfg

    Hello, it has been a year and four months since I received a speeding ticket. My first ticket was doing 72 on 55. I paid that off online since it was far from where I lived. The one i just got recently was for doing 60 on 45 locally. I decided to pay it off online, but I just found out that I could hire a lawyer to help reduce amount of points. I am more concerned about my insurance payment going up. If my payments will go up by a lot, by how much will it be? Also, is it too late for me to hire a lawyer?

    I got pulled over for speeding, 72 in a 55. This is my first time being pulled over & getting a ticket in 25 years of driving.

  194. LARhoden

    I left a message and already sent my information on the other page with pictures of my ticket but I am leaving it here as well. I received a speeding ticket in Rensselaer, Schodack Town Court, for 70 in a 45. I did not realize their ticket system is VERY different than downstate and the date given is your true court date. Ultimately, I have court TODAY 11/20/13 at 6:00pm. I wish to plead not guilty or at the VERY least reduce/eliminate the fine and points. Also, the officer marked my car as Grey and not blue. I hope that helps. Nevertheless, is there any assistance your firm can give?

    Thank you!

  195. Alexander Irwin

    I was heading out to get something to eat. I was doing 64 in a 40, my reason was what I told the officer. I was going through my gears because my transmission would downshift then up shift. I’m 17 I was driving at 9:50 when the officer pulled me over. This is my first ticket I have had my license for a little over a year. With out any law problems.

  196. Kyle

    I recently got pulled over. The police officer said that he had me going 70, but I had my cruise set just above 60 and I was in a 55. I told him that I thought there had been something wrong with my speedometer. So, he wrote me a speeding ticket and a ticket for an unlawful speedometer. He said that if I get my speedometer re-calibrated and send in the bill with the tickets that they might get dropped, but it depends on the judge. I’m not sure whether I should plead guilty or not-guilty on the tickets. But, I already filled out the guilty sections on both and put an explanation on both. What should I do?

  197. Samantha

    I received my first ever speeding ticket traveling home from Rochester, NY to Western Massachusetts yesterday evening. I was cited for going 83 mph in a 65 mph zone by a state cop via radar gun on the NYS Thruway (I-90) in Junius Ponds (Seneca County). I intend to plead not guilty. 1. What kind of fine am I facing?
    2. Will it carry over to Massachusetts and potentially affect my insurance?
    3. Since it is my first offense (never been pulled over or ticketed before, absolutely nothing on my record), is it possible that the charge could be reduced to a non-moving violation? Do first time offenses ever get totally dismissed without a court/trial appearance? ( I live 4.5 hrs away from Junius Ponds)

  198. John

    I am an Indiana driver with a clean record. I received a ticket on 11/06/13 in the town of Diana in Lewis county NY on State Road 3. I observed one 30 MPH sign as I entered town. Well after I passed what appeared to be the edge of town I saw a NY State officer on the shoulder. He stopped and ticketed me for 46 in a 30 via radar. When we stopped we were less than 100 yards from a 55 MPH sign. Should I fight this ticket?

  199. shamrock

    I was pulled over for going 97 in a 50mph zone – vets hwy – I was trying to get away from a car with no brake lights and moved into the right lane – yes, I probably sped up when passing but not sure it was 97 – the officer also ticketed me for reckless driving and I think improper lane change – not sure – I cannot read it – not sure if he was behind me or if he was parked and I passed him I have only ever gotten one other ticket for rolling through a stop sign over 10 years ago – I am so scared right now – I have a court date in Jamuary!

  200. Jonathan

    Hi there

    I was caught by NY State police going 84 on a 65. He did not reduce the speed when handed the fine.

    I live in Toronto Canada and I dont rent a car. If I fight the ticket, I would need to rent a car and pay gas to show up to court and spend about $150.

    Since I dont know how much the fine is until I plead guilty, is it worthwhile to fight it or could the fine be over $300? Could I plead guilty and request for a reduction by mail? Please advise

  201. KC

    I was caught speeding the other day in Kinderhook, NY going 70 in a 55 zone. When the officer asked if I knew why he pulled me over, I said I realized I was speeding (didn’t notice until I saw the cop car and looked at my speed). He put down my speed as 60 by radar on the ticket to help me out. Can I get this reduced further by pleading not guilty? My hesitancy to bother is that I’m 4 hours away from where this happened so going into court is not easy.

  202. Joseph

    I received 3 tickets on the Thruway (I-87) South Bound in the Town of Newburgh on 10/31/12 at 5:58AM.
    The first ticket was for rear side windows non/transparent and the second ticket was for sidewing/sidewindows/non/transparent. At the time I was pulled over the troopper never tested my windows and it was dark out. I was also under the impression that it was legal to have my back windows tinted. Should I plead not guilty since the trooper never tested my windows? The third ticket I received was for speed in zone. The trooper wrote me for 87 MPH in a 50 MPH zone. This part of the thruway is a 65 MPH zone not 50. Do I plead not guilty to this since the trooper wrote the zone wrong? Also should i request supporting deposition on any or all of these tickets? Thanks for your help

  203. simon

    Hello,
    I have received a ticket in Manhattan on the FDR traveling NB (posted speed limit of 40mph) for traveling 70mph detected by radar in medium traffic. Unfortunatey I have been found guilty and have been 6 points + fines. I believe I was misrepresented in court and I would like to know if I can take any further action on my behalh. Thank you for your help.

    Hello.. I have a court date Today (11/12) in Clinton Ny (dutchess county) at 7pm for a pre trial Conference

    is it too late to get an Attorney to appear for me? Do I need to show also?

    Ticket is for a WZ 59/45

    Thanks

  205. Brandon

    Hello, I was late and omw to work after a very hard morning and was traveling on I-890 N when I got pulled over doing 102/55. I plead not guilty and cant afford a lawyer and my trial date is tomorrow… what do I do?

  206. Kristen

    I was pulled over for going 42 in a 30 with the sign for 45 visible from where I was pulled over. It was about 1:30am, and I told the cop I was coming from a friend’s house, had had 3 drinks over the course of the night, but not for an hour. I had no problem with his “sobriety tests.” Do I seriously go to court and bother? Or pay the fine and accept points on my license? I was shocked he even wrote the ticket…

  207. len Mo

    Hi. Received a speeding ticket on I-90 east bound, location 4753. 82 in a 65 zone. I have an NJ license, clean driving record. My last name does not appear on the ticket anywhere, it says VG in the defendant’s/last name block. Can this be dismissed as a fatal flaw? Other than that, what is the chance of reduced fine or points, or both? Also, assuming it is worth hiring your firm, what would your fees be?

    Lastly, I explained to the the officer that I was in center lane and sped up rapidly in order to pass the car in front of me who kept accelerating and decelerating erratically, so I wanted to get him behind me so he did not pose a danger. As soon as I pulled out and accelerated I got hit with the radar- if it matters at all.

      Hi. We have encountered this scenario several times in the past and this is not the basis for an automatic dismissal; we’d have to make a motion to dismiss and it might or might not be granted. There is no “emergency” exception in the speeding statute so your second point is not a defense.

    I received a ticket going 87 in a 65 on I 87 north at about 11:10 last night. I am 17 and I have a junior license so he wrote up a separate ticket for that too. I have a crystal clean record and license for now and I’m not prepared to lose that. Can you help?

  209. Nicole

    Got pulled over in upstate NY they say because I was doing 45 in a 30 using radar but don’t think I was actually going that fast. Is it possible to fight a speeding ticket when radar was used?

  210. Laurie Jackson

    The answer to the math question is 56 but it will only let me put in 1 number.

    I received a speeding ticket in the Town of Oswegatchie, NY. I was clocked going 60 in a 45 MPH zone. However, the zone had just changed as he was pulling me over. I am from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. My family and I were on our way to Syracuse for a weekend getaway. Is it worth fighting this ticket since I am not from the States?
    Thanks,
    Laurie

    I got a ticket for 55 in a 35 in Lakewood New York on my way to work. how much to fight it I have a clean record

  212. Camilo

    I got pulled over at 3am coming down from Albany to New York City near a town called Ravena on the i87 going 82 in a 65 zone, there were no cars and the NYS trooper gave me three tickets, speeding, window tints, and a cover on my license plate, should I fight it ? With all this my license would be suspended but I need it for work and school as they are both a 30 minute drive from home.

  213. Chris

    I got pulled over for doing 80 in a 55 mph zone on Sunrise Highway in May. The ticket got reduced to a $450 parking ticket this past September. However I also was pulled over in July for 80 in a 55 mph zone on the LIE. I have a court date approaching, with a lawyer, what type of penalty am I looking at?

  214. abc

    We were on our way to Niagara.. My husband was driving the car. We were entering a 30 mph zone from 55 mph from highway to town road in Mt. Morris County. We were caught stating that we were at 50 mph.. however, I remember that our GPS was showing 38 MPH.. we did not know what to do.. he was on his international DL. As we live in DE, we were asked to communicate by mail. We pleaded guilty with explanation and we have now rcvd a letter with fee of $343 inlcuding sur charge.. Don’t know what to do. The letter does not talk about any points etc. It justs asked us to pay by end of the month. Please let us know what this means and should we try talk to some one to reduce the fine as this is the first time. No other charges also.

  215. Emily

    I got a speeding ticket for 77 in a 50 on the LIE in queens jurisdiction in April of 2012. I was driving in the left lane following the flow of traffic, with my signal on to move into the middle lane. There was moderate traffic but the cop said light traffic. He got me from the right shoulder. When I went to court I told the judge I had a clean record and was following the flow of traffic and that he could have gotten a reading off a different car. I was the only one in the room that she didn’t lower or dismiss, I paid $500 that day, and now in October of 2013 my insurance went up $1300. I can’t afford to pay that and I can’t work any more hours while I’m in school, and I need my car to get to work and school. Is there anything I can do about this

  216. amber

    A friend of mine got pulled over last year doing 76 in a 55 she told her mom she got it taken care of and didnt she lives in pa so im guessing she didnt plea on it how do we find out if she has a warrant and if she does how do we get it taken care of

  217. Leonardo

    I got a ticket for doing 95 in a 65 on the highway. Due to the importance of where I was headed the officer dropped to 75. In the additional info section of the ticket it says RADAR 95. Will I be able to get this dropped to a parking ticket since it says 75 and does the 95 hurt my chance of doing that?

  218. Imran

    I was going 90 on 55 in nassu county north heamstead, Ny. What am I looking at? Is it 6 points or 8? And what is the max fine including everything?

  219. Brian M

    I was driving on a road in west Nyack ny and accelerating going up a hill and as I came down the otherside there was an unmarked detective car on the side. I knew I was caught when I saw him and sure enough got pulled over by a Clarkstown cop.He said he got me doing 47mph in a 30mph zone. I have a court date on the 14th my license is clean and has no points and want to keep it that way. What should I do? And how much fees etc am I looking at? How much is your fee to take care of this

  220. Daniella

    I was running late for work one morning and was pulled over doing 57 mph in a 30 mph zone on a main road (not highway) in residential area of Clarkstown, NY. I have a NJ license and live in NJ. Should I fight it ? I know it’s a 6 point offense but I’ve read that only 2 points transfer over to my NJ license. Should I just pay it and move on with my life? Is it better to show up? I’m debating showing up by myself and having to pay additional court fees.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The problem is that the 6 points will trigger a $300 surcharge on top of the $393 max. penalty so you’re out almost $700 not to mention potential insurance increases.

  221. Richard L

    Hello, I was pulled over yesterday in the bronx, Ny coing home from work at the end of the month. I have my jr licence and was stopped at 4:00am.

Should i pay the fine or go to court and fight it? What are my options?

  222. Brenda

    My 18 year old son got his license in May 2013 and 2 days ago got a speeding ticket 60 in a 40 mph zone in Ononadaga county. It is his first offense but within his first 6 months of having his license. He was stopped by a NYS Trooper and ticket states it was verified by radar. Our insurance just got reduced this month after our 22 year old son’s accident and ticket from 3 years ago finally dropped off – now this happens. Was so looking forward to reduced premiums! What are the fines and surcharges on a 20 mph speeding ticket and can we fight and get a reduction against a NYS Trooper?

  223. Nicholas

    I was pulled over doing 80 mph in a normal (65) mph speed limit, but due to being in a work zone it was reduced to 55 mph on interstate 81 near Watertown,NY So 80 in a 55 …… Should I fight it ?

  224. Patel

    I had a ticket and my court date is coming on for nov 13th for speeding when crossing the Triboro Bridge in Queens. Per the TBTA officer with the range of 100-200 feet from the toll booth I was doing 94 in a 40 zone which i find hard to believe unless i had the urgency to kill my self, which definitely not the case because with mechanical/transmission issues with my car its hard to go above 70 even 65 as it would either shut down on me or stall or shake to a point where you feel like the tires are about to come off. second, stopping st such a high speed and my tire, alignment and NY pot holes problems even on the bridges would probably not possible in that short of a distance from the toll booth. I asked for the radar proof and she made excuses and failed to provide any justification. I know was going above 40 and probably going 55 or 60 but definitely 94. She had tried finding my license but she said that she searched both systems but couldn’t find my license yet still issued me a ticket. What can i do? I really need help fighting this ticket. Please Help!!!

  225. Alan

    1180-B, 75 in a 55. On 454 Vets Hwy in Hauppauge @ 4:09AM. Was coming home from work and NO ONE was on the road with me .. Points/fines/fees? Fight it?

  226. Wendy Wright

    I got my first speeding ticket on my way to work one day. I was traveling down a two way road while a State Trooper was coming the other direction, he passed me, then did a U turn and followed me all the way to the parking lot and turned on his lights. The officer said I was doing 45 in a 30 (I am 100% sure I was going 35), but he said he would mark it as 40 in a 30 instead. He then proceeded to tell me if I pled not guilt in court, he would change the speed to 45 instead of the 40 he documented it at. It states on my ticket that it was a radar that documented my speed. My question is, while the officer’s vehicle is moving, how accurate would the radar be in determining my speed? I have also heard that if an officer is traveling in the oppisite direct as the ‘defendant’ and the officer turns around to stop the driver for speeding, he can’t give a speeding ticket for it, that it would have to be a ‘Failure To Obey a Traffic Device’ ticket. Any thoughts?? Thanks!!

    I received a ticket on I 86 Saturday morning. I am not even sure what county I was in at that point (don’t have my ticket in front of me). I was going 80 in a 65. I am from Pennsylvania. Are fines higher for out of state drivers? I was speeding but is it worth fighting to try to lower the fines?

  230. Donna

    Hi I got a speeding ticket in Saratoga County on Saturday night at 8:20pm, The trooper said I was on rada at 83mph in a 65mph zone on I87 going South. This is my very first an only ticket ever in 41 yrs of driving. Im am a nervous reck just thinking of what might happen to me. Jail time high fines and points on my perfect license and record. What should I do? Im 59 yrs old and sick. I was told to mail in my plea and wait for an answer from the DA. Help me please. I am totally lost, I have NO idea what to do I live in NH. y husband and I went away for the weekend to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary, was not drinking at all.

  231. Melissa

    My daughter just got a speeding ticket on 590 in Rochester. Was pulled over for crossing 2 lanes of traffic to get off at her exit which she did not do all at once. It was a busy morning commute so there were 3 lanes of traffic, not empty roads. Pulled to the center lane, slowed down behind a car she says was going about 50 then pulled into the right lane to get off at her exit. Was given a ticket for 77 in a 55, she has only had her license a year and insurance cost is already unbearable, this will make it impossible. She insists there was no way she was even doing 70, definitely not 77 and people were still passing her left and right. How do you know if there is anything you can do to get this reduced? The cop put on the ticket that he used a Laser to tag the speed and I’ve been told you cant fight a laser speed in court regardless of if you think they tagged someone else or not.

  232. Christine

    I was pulled over doing 50 in a 45, the cop was going to let me go, but then accused me of doing 55. I had cruise control on, set for 50, so I explained that to him. He then went back to his car and wrote me a ticket for doing 50 in a 45 because I was “argumentative”.
    Advice please!?!

    Thank you! :-)

  233. Mary

    In June I was pulled over in NY and the trooper said I was doing 69 in a 55 mph area. I argued and told him I was not doing 69 my speedometer read 61 which I understand I can still be ticketed for this, however I also asked him why he pulled me over and not the white SUV that was tailgaiting me and passed as soon as I pulled into the right lane. He had no response for me. He gives me a ticket for unregistered vehicle , which my vehicle was registered. I pled not guilty and in October I go for the pre trial conference with the DA. The Judge explained that this was an agreement between myself the DA and her honor. Well the trooper was there.. I pled not guilty and he chimes in for me to say why I was originally pulled over. I said “you said I was doing 69 and I asked you why you pulled me over and not the White SUV. he said that he could still give me the speeding ticket if I didnt change my plea to guilty .. so I said this is supposed to be between the judge myself and the DA .. what are you doing here and that’s extortion. The judge was smiling and the DA was silent ! Can this happen? Is this allowed? ANd can I file a complaint if this is not allowed.

  234. Anthony Giordano

    I received a speeding ticket for going 80 in a 65 in Orange County, NY. I currently live in Boston and do not want to travel if I do not have to. I did not just want to give in to pay the fine either. Can you please let me know my options of fighting the ticket? Thanks!

  235. Mary

    Hi…I just got a speeding ticket yesterday on I-684. I’ve never gotten a ticket before and my license is clean. I was keeping up with traffic, but was coming down a hill and clocked at 84 in a 65. I regrettably stated “I was going a little too fast” to the officer. The officer lowered my speed to 74 in a 65 and issued the ticket. Being that the charge was already lowered, is it still worth fighting this type of ticket with a clean license?

  236. Laura J.

    Hi,
    I got my first speeding on 27 sunrise highway . I’ve been driving for about 8 years now. I work full time and go to school at night. That night I was coming back home I was exhausted and I guess I didn’t see that I was going 83 in 55 speed zone I really thought I was going with traffic there were other 3 cars around me but the officer pulled me over I guess I was the closest. I’m paying full coverage insurance , barely can pay off the school I really can’t afford my insurance going up. I looked it up and it’s 6 points on my license. I pleated not guilty. Is it possible to lower it down to 0 points and just pay a fine and/or community service to give back to the community for the danger I put them into? What would be the fine? Can you help me ?
    Thank you,
    Laura J.

    I have a NJ drivers license. Ticketed for speeding in NY State, 81 in a 65. Do points transfer to my NJ license? Is it worth fighting? I have a clean NJ license.

  238. Adrea Sherman

    Why are surcharges so high, or higher than the fine itself? I recently got a speeding ticket for 75.00, which isn’t that expensive compared to others I’ve seen, but the surcharge was $93.00. Why is the surcharge higher than the plain ticket/fine itself?

  239. Elan

    I received a cell phone ticket in Brooklyn, NY, and I pleaded not guilty. They scheduled me for court in exactly one year from now in October 2014. Is there a statute of limitations on this? What about the right to a speedy trial?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Elan,
      There are millions of traffic tickets issued every year in New York City and to process each case can be a lengthy process. There is no defined statute of limitations and a court date one year down the road is pretty typical for cases in Brooklyn. If you would like us to handle your case for you we can possibly win you a dismissal. Please call us at 1-888-883-5529 for a consultation.

  245. jessica edwards

    hi i got a speeding ticket in syracuse on 690E going 75 in a 55. A few months back in may i pleaded guilty to another speeding ticket of going 70 in a 65, but I took defensive driving and I believe that may have removed the points from my licence but i am not sure if thats entirely true. What would be the chances of getting this knocked down to a non moving violation, something that would get me zero points, so that I dont mess up my driving record anymore considering im 22, i already have high enough insurance and i dont need any more stress because of this :(

  246. Laura

    I am CT resident, and was driving through North Salem on my way to work in back in CT. It was my first day heading to the new office buidling. I don’t recall seeing a speed limit sign, and was keeping up with traffic until I was catch behind a person turning left. So I ended up being seperated from the rest of the cars. I was clocked doing 58 in a 35. I was ticketed with doing 45-35. Not sure if I should fight it, but I am hesitant because it doesn’t tell me the fine up front. After looking at the ticket more closely I noticed that the middle intial on the ticket is an S and mine is a K, so I am not sure if that is something worth using to fight it. I have one ticket from an accident 3 years ago in CT. Otherwise no tickets in 12 years.

  247. Richie

    Hi,
    On Oct 10,2013, I was coming home from a job in poughkeepsie and I got pulled over for doing 45 in a 30 MPH zone on Route 9 in Ossining new york at 1:50 A.M., whereas I was doing 35 at that time. Somehow, when I was at a traffic light on route 9 in new york and there was a cop on the other side of the intersection, i feel i was set up, after i left that police officer, that police officer must have radioed the other police officer to pull me over. I have a good driving record being I haven’t been pulled over in 5 years. I am going to plead not guilty to this. Adam, can we discuss this situation more in detail? Thank you so much.

  248. Barbara Miller

    I got as speeding ticket on 10/8. Trooper got me on radar doing 82 in a 65 mph zone on I-87 in Ulster. When the trooper pulled me over he asked if the car was a rental, asked for my license, when I wanted to give him the card with my current address he didn’t want it, the citation does not have my current address because he didn’t take the updated card with my license. When he handed me the ticket he told me I could come to court to fight it. I was the only one with an out of state license in a group of New York drivers who were all doing the same speed. I didn’t want to be a problem to the other drivers, was not driving recklessly (other than speeding), and was very uncomfortable to slow down because I found people were tail-gaiting me when I tried to do the speed limit. What fine am I looking at and can you help me? What points am I looking? I have no history of moving violations. I do not own a car and would need to rent a car to appear in court. I am also on a fixed income and have no savings account.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You don’t NEED an attorney but I would suggest it because a 6 point ticket is a serious violation and could lead to a max. fine of $693 and license and auto insurance consequences.

  250. Robert Bulson

    Hi,

    I received a speeding ticket and accidentally plead guilty on the ticket which I mailed. i did not realize this until i got a bill in the mail for $288. This really is disappointing as my brother is a police officer in a neighbor town and was going to have another cop friend call the cop for me who knows the guy issuing the ticket.

    I called the court and they told me I had to file a motion. My liscense is clean other than this ticket so not really worried about the pts. can i file the motion on my own? Read online to file a Coram nobis and the judge might allow it? How do i do it?

    How much would a lawyer such as yourself cost to fight? Even if the plea gets reversed i am not guaranteed to get an AC/DC but rather just reduced and still have to pay a fine. Like i said I do not care about the points just the fine.

  251. dina

    Hi,
    Got a radar gun ticket for going 47 in a 30 on Fordham road in the Bronx. After being issued the ticket, I redrove the route and took pictures because there were no speed limit signs. I had exited the Bronx River Parkway south at the Fordham road exit, proceded under the overpass where I was pulled over. Along the route, there were no signage. I am not a regular driver of NYC, I live in Putnam county, NY (about an hour+ from NYC) so I dont automatically know the speed limit. I feel like I was set up. I have been driving 27 years and have a clean drivers license. Is there a requirement for me to know what all street speed limits are? Thanks for your help.

    Hey I got a ticket 97 in a 55 on the Long Island expressway, what in looking at points and fine charges ? Anyway I can still keep my liesence ?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      This is an 11 point speed so if you plead guilty or are found guilty at trial the max. fines are $693 + $675 Driver Responsibility Assessment. Therefore, it is imperative that you hire an experienced attorney to fight your ticket.

    My wife got her first ticket for “speeding in zone”. She was doing 81 in a 65 on I-90. The court is Pembroke town court. Please suggest our options if we pleade guilty and not guilty. Thanks

  261. Kelly

    We are from CT and were driving back from Canada Tuesday night. We had the Garmin GPS on our dash to navigate. We were on I90 East, going 65 which is what the speed limit was, and in a crowd of other cars, came upon a “work zone”, where the sign said 55 and right after that there was a trooper. No one had time to lower the speed to 55 because it just came up on us and the trooper was sitting in the dark right after the speed limit change. He pulled us over and told us he clocked us at 74 in a work zone. Now we know this is not true, it was dark so we were doing the speed limit because we know how NY state is with traffic tickets. We were going with the flow of traffic and other people passed us before the trooper pulled us over. I really don’t see this as fair because there were other faster drivers, NY drivers (we were the only out of state ones), we were doing the posted speed limit and there was no actual construction, just barrels up, a speed limit change sign and a trooper waiting to catch someone. We ware planning on sending the ticket in Not Guilty, is there anything else we can do?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Yes, we can fight it for you and get points reduced and also try to get it out of the work zone so there is no risk that you lose your NY driving privileges. Contact us for more details.

    This morning I was driving to school in Poughkeepsie.. And I got pulled over for doing 41 in a 25 (16 over). I was daydreaming, I’ll admit and wasn’t paying attention. What are the possible points and fines?

  263. Danielle

    About 2 months ago I received a ticket for 86 in a 55 mph zone. I understand 31+ is excessive speed. Is there any way I could fight this case? My hearing is at the Rochester traffic violations bureau and I heard from a lot of my family who are all within law enforcement that the bureau is known to not reduce tickets at all.

  264. Morgan Shott

    Hi there, I am from Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Got a speeding ticket in NY State ( west seneca ), pleaded guilty by faxing in the form. I was going 77 in a 55, got a $290 ticket, and have to pay the fee of $300 to the state of NY on top of that. Wondering if there is any way to reverse this? Do I have to pay the $300 fee if I am from Canada?
    Thanks so much!

    My husband received a speeding ticket for traveling 89 in a 65 in Rochester. I already sent in the guilty plea figuring we would pay a fee. I was shocked to see the fee is $350 and he just received the driver assessment for $450. Is there anyway to reverse his guilty plea?

    I got a ticket for 57 in a 40 zone (speed in the area was reduced due to detouring – no construction in the area) by Potsdam Police. Are the fines the same? Points? And are tickets from Potsdam “shared” with Ontario authorities?

    Any point in fighting this? Feel free to email me directly.

    I’ve received ticket by NY State Police in the I-84 driving 90 on 65miles zone. Ticket indicates that charge based on officer’s direct observation and verified by radar. I live in Boston and have MA license. Should I plead guilty or not guilty in terms of cost and benefit? Do I have to go to court and are there any benefits for me to plead not guilty etc… Please any suggestion for which direction should I follow?
    Thanks in advance, -Fahri

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Fahri, If you plead guilty you’d get 6 points and a maximum penalty of $693 so I’d suggest you contact us so we can tell you how we can save you points and money. Please call us at your convenience.

    i received a speeding ticket in Buffalo, 76 in a 55 zone. paid the fine and now have received a notice to pay an additional $300 for driver responsibility assessment. it says if I dont pay my NYS license will be suspended. I only have an Ontario license. Do i have to pay this?
    Thanks Sue

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Yes, you have to pay it. If you don’t, they will suspend your NY driving privileges and if you get caught driving in NY you can get arrested. More than that, the suspension can transfer to Canada.

    Hi this morning i did a 81 in a 55 to pass a group of cars to get into an exit, theres a 203 fine for speeding but i do no believe i went to 80. Should i plead not guilty? Do i have to pay more fees if i do plead not guilty?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You should not plead guilty because you will be hit with 6 points and a potential for $693 in fines. Please contact our offices for more information. 888-883-5529.

    On 9/11/13 I received a speeding ticket for doing 48mph in a 20mph school zone. I plead guilty on the ticket, but I haven’t sent it in yet. What will I be facing? Is there anyway this could be fought? What is the cost for your services?

  273. Mike

    Hi,
    I am a Canadian resident. I was driving in Buffalo last weekend with a Canadian driving license and a car. Unfortunately I took a left turn where it was not allowed and I was caught by an officer. After talking to me, the officer gave me a ticket for placing my GPS on the front windshield for the reason the ”driver’s view obstructed”. He did not mention anything about fines and demerit points. I am wondering if it will have any demerit points or no. And how much fines I should be looking at? Can I fight it or no?

  274. Seb

    I received a speeding ticket. 86 in a 65 in saratoga county. Is there any chance this could be fought?

  275. r

    I got a speeding ticket 80 in a 55, and a seatbelt violation ticket, I know I am looking at a suspension, but how can you fight that, is there any chance my license will not get suspended?? Is there any chance of reductions if I plea guilty?? Also im a PA resident if that makes a difference.

  276. Leo

    Hi , I received a ticket for speed not reasonable and prudent for doing a silly burnout in an empty parking lot. My main question is can the officer raise the charge to a misdemeanor if I plea not guilty. He told me if I didn’t plea guilty he was going to raise the charge since he already gave me my break ???

  277. d

  280. Shun

    Hi,
    I got a speeding ticket (1180D) on July 4 on I87 in Woodbury (N/B 49). It was a 65 mph zone and I was charged for 80 mph. In the additional information of the supporting deposition section, the officer wrote: 86 mph at 1370 ft , slowed to 80 mph. I hold a NJ driver license and it is my first ticket for the last 10 year (very clean NJ record). If I plead guilty, what is the fine? And will it increase my insurance? If I plead not guilty and hire a lawyer to fight, will I save any money? I don’t drive to NY very often.
    The ticket mentions that I have to mail this NOT GUILTY plea within 48 hours. The court will notify me by First Class Mail of my appearance date. Do I need to do it if I hire a lawyer to represent me? Thanks
    Shun

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    I got pulled over by a state trooper on 20/june. I was going 53 in a 40MPH. The cop wrote me a summons. I mailed it in immidiatley pleading guilty. I just recived my fine in the mail -250$ for going 54 in a 40. ( even though the cop wrote me a ticket for going 13 over. Not 14) The problem Is ive tried calling the court house many times, and even tried to find it. I can not find it nor are they answering their phone. Advice? & What are some ways I can get points off my liscence?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Once you plead guilty the only avenue to “get points off your license” is to have a lawyer do a Motion to Vacate. You can contact us if you are interested in hiring us to do so.

    I received a ticket for going 80 in a 65 (NYS thruway). The court I’m supposed to appear at is over 3 hours away from where I live; it simply isn’t feasible to go to court. Is there any way to plead not guilty without going to court?

    Driving from Cincinnati to Maine we were stopped by a NY state trooper. Said we were driving 76 in a 55 in a group of cars. In a comstruction zone. My wife was driving. My wife has not had a ticket in many years and is a safe driver. Ticket is looking to be close to 400$. He put that babies were in car. What are my options. I’m sure the safty in the way he-pulled us over and how he acted does not matter.

    Was out of town for soccer tournament- Just pulled out from hotel and hadn’t put seatbelt on yet (seatbelt reminder hadn’t gone off yet). State trooper waiting for me and pulled me over, I didn’t realize it was a primary offense. Also couldn’t produce reg paper- so another ticket. reg sticker was affixed and correct reg exp date was on ticket- pled not guilty to nonregist ticket. Court sent me back bill saying here are your fines and surcharges for both your guilty pleas?!?

    I was giving a speeding ticket for doing 102 in a 55 mile zone. The State Trooper that pulled me over said that I was speeding but never clocked me on a radar or pace me . He said a unmarked car paced me at 102 for 3 miles . I know for a fact I wasn’t driving that speed , I don’t understand why a unmarked car didn’t pull me over if I was speeding . I know that it wasn’t a unmarked car behind me because at one point a Red BMW came out of nowhere speeding up on the back of me and tailgates me down the highway and the state troop was waiting down the highway on the shoulder waiting for me . Out of the 8 cars around me , I was the vehicle that got pulled over. I know that the guy in the red BMW called the trooper. The guy in the red BMW was talking on his phone and he probably was mad because I cut in front of him on the highway because he was driving very slow and talking on his phone. When the trooper issued me the ticket, It never said that I was clocked but radar or laser and it didn’t say that he pace me . The ticket said reason and the trooper put ” Facts and Belief ” that is very strange to me. I am currently waiting to go to trial in Chester , New York. Any advise for fighting this claim of speeding.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

  294. Tony

    Hi There!
    I have an interesting situation. I am a Canadian and I was in the US this weekend and more specifically New York and New Jersey. I was driving through Avoca NY and I made a stupid mistake/assumption about the speedometer. You see, first off I don’t generally drive (I’m from Toronto, a big city where I often take transit ) I was in a rental car and although I don’t drive all the time, I do rent cars quite a bit and I am a very careful and aware driver. I was on Interstate 390S, which is a 65 zone and I was doing 80. Stupidly, in my head I was thinking i was doing 15 KM over instead of Miles as we deal in Kilometres in Canada. 15 Kilometres is roughly 7 Miles. But 15 Miles is around 30 Kilometres. In my head i was thinking “In Canada, our highway speed limits are 100km/hr and I would generally do 115km/hr to keep with the flow of traffic. So I thought “Here is 65 so I will do 80″ (15 more).
    I know it was a bad oversight at the time but I really didn’t realize. Even when I got pulled over by the State Trooper – and pulled off to the left instead of the right (something he let go thankfully), I didn’t understand the gravity of the situation (15miles being alot major than I thought), and when he asked why he pulled me over I said “I think I was speeding” in which he responded “YOU THINK?”
    Now – I am left with a ticket that I have to fill out (Guilty I presume – as I can’t show up in court via Skype to my knowledge) and wait for the fee and demerit points. I really need some insight here as to how I should proceed…. I am very worried that this is going to affect me quite negatively and although I am not denying that I was speeding, I can’t help but feel innocent as I did not realize what was going on.

    Thanks!

    I received a 18mph over doing 83 in a 65 on I87 in Saratoga county. On the ticket the sub section 1180D. I was wondering on the ticket it says my registration expires on 6/30/2013, the sticker on my plate is 6/30/2015. So I am wondering how much would it cost to have this taken care of. Looking forward to a reply. What are y options I have to ensure that the ticket is sent back before June 11, 2013.

    Last year I got a speeding ticket (70 in 55)…a year later I got nabbed again, but the cop gave me an obstructed view ticket instead saying it was no points…I thanked him, plead, and paid the fine…now I am getting a drivers assessment statement looking for $300 from the DMV and it has the obstruction ticket as a 2 point offense…is this correct and if so any way to avoid this???
    Thanks

    hi,
    I’m going to traffic court tomorrow for speeding 95 in a 55 in Suffolk county. I know for a fact that I wasn’t going 95 but I’m only 17 years old so it’s my word against theirs. I’m going to try pleading not quilts but how many points will I likely end up with on my license?

    Hello I Just received a ticket for 74 in 40 in a constrution zone on the Staten Island expressway at 3:10am in the morning coming home from work. I did not see any construction zone signs up or any indication that work was being done in that section of the highway. There aren’t even cones. What are my options?

  299. Sophie Ye

    Hello, I’m commenting regarding my fathers traffic ticket. (I’m 16 and my English isn’t that good!)

    My father had recently received a ticket for speeding in a work zone. It says that he was going 75 mph in a 40 mph zone. It was 1:30 am..; which I believe that there wouldn’t be any workers working during 1 a.m.? (Not sure if work zone meant that people are constructing the roads.)

    In the back of the ticket, it says that if you were 21-30 mph over speed limit in a work zone, you’re required to pay $360. It also says that you have to add a mandatory $60 surcharge and $20 fee… Do I need to pay that? Is the total $480?

    Also, my dad is currently unemployed, our income is not balanced with the outcome, we need my grand parents help in order to pay bills. Our only income source is from my mom, which she doesn’t get paid a lot.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Sophie,
      I’m sorry to hear about your father’s traffic ticket. Unfortunately the fines and penalties are really high for speeding tickets in New York. If your father was traveling between 21-30 over the speed limit it carries about a $435 fine/surcharge fee. That is also a 6 point ticket that carries an additional $300 to be paid to the DMV for the Driver Responsibility Program. You should give us a call for a free consultation so we can let you know how to fight this case and save your family money with fines/surcharges and insurance premiums. Call today at 888-883-5529.

      You are being charged with a 6 point ticket that carries a fine of $300 and an $85 surcharge. 6 points on your license will also result in the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment fine of $100/year for 3 years. $685 in fines and surcharges all together but if you hire our firm we can get a reduction on the points and fines, guaranteed!

    I received a speeding ticket going 50 in a 30 in zone in Brooklyn, ny. however, it was in august of 2012 and school year was over so no classes were in session. I noticed that the intersection on where i was pulled over was spelled incorrectly. do i have any shot of perhaps getting it dismissed? This is my first offense and I have been driving for 10 years with no driviing record. I plead not guilty and plan on fighting it!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      An incorrect spelling is almost never grounds for dismissal. This is Traffic Violations Bureau so your case will have to go to trial if you want a chance at avoiding the 4 points. Call me if you want to discuss. -Adam

    Hi, I am a NJ resident who received a speeding ticket of 92 mph in a 65 zone, which is an 1180D. I know that If I plead guilty, I will have to pay the fee of 300 dollars for the speed, 85-100 dollars for the court fees, and an additional 100 dollars a year for the next three. I have had a clean driving record for the last 2 1/2 years and never anything in NY. After speaking with a different attorney, he informed me that the court could move to suspend my license, which due to the This doesn’t seem correct, and just wanted a second opinion.

    I got a ticket this past saturday morning in monroe county. I was in town for my wedding on saturday (4.13.13). I had just picked up a rental suburban as a surprise for my bride so we’d have something nice to drive in, and I was running late to get to her parents house where we were all getting ready. I was so focused and worried about the wedding that I was oblivious to the suburban and didn’t realize how fast I was going. I thought I was going low 70s and the officer listed me at 80. After he issued the citation he inquired why i was in town, and when i said for my wedding at 2pm at the genesee yacht club he said he wished he knew that earlier as he knew how stressful it could be, as he’s been married 17 years. advice?

    I foolishly plead guilty to a speeding ticket ( just wanted to get it over with quikly by mail) was convicted paid the $175.00 fine and thought that would be the end of it. Instead I recieved a notice from DMV that my licence will be suspeneded for 60 days and I will have to pay an additional $75 for a restricted licence and $35 to lift my suspension. In addition I am pretty sure my insurance will increase and I will have points on my licence. All because I just wanted to get my granddaughter to the “potty” I was only passing another car the officer said I was going 80 in a 65mile zone. I have been driving on and off for over 30 Years but this was the first 6 months with a new licence. I had my permit for years without so much as a blink in my direction from a police officer. Is it to late to fix this mess?

      First we would have to make a Motion to Vacate the guilty plea but whether we can do it or what our chances are depends on the court and the charges. Which court handled your ticket and what was the speed they said you were going and the speed limit?

      Best,

    I was caught doing 89 in a 65 zone. I have a Texas license. I live in Syracuse then court is in Binghamton. Should I go that court? How much should i pay for that? If i hire lawyer, how much should I pay for that?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    My little brother got yanked by a troop in dec of 2011 for speed. The troop wrote him an equipment violation referencing the speedodometer not workin (when it was) rather than a speed violation so here we have a reduction of a violation rather than the most appropriate charge. He requested a hearing and the hearing was not set until May 2013- over a year and a half later. Is this a violation of his due process right to a speedy trial?. Is it worth me hiring an attorney for him? Thanks.

  313. Tricia

    I was caught doing 79 in a 55 zone …I never had a ticket in my life …been driving since 1991…my question is …can I go down to the traffic court and plea it down …does it reduce the points too ? Thanks for your help!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    I am an Ontario driver and have been charged with doing 81mph in a 65 zone when Eastbound on the 1-90 in the town of Farmington, NY. I was momentarily distracted while passing some slower traffic and inadvertently sped up more than I intended, because I never speed intentionally. I don’t want to have to pay an increase in my insurance. How would you recommend that I plead?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Kim,

    I got my license in november 2010. I got my first speeding ticket (84 in a 55 zone) in may of 2012, got 6 points on my license but got 4 deducted by taking defensive driving course. Today, april 6th, I got another speeding ticket (81 in a 55 zone) and I am aware of the fines and points I will be given, but because both tickets were less than a year apart and I am under 21 (I am 19 years old) will my license get suspended? Please help me out

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

  317. Kevin

    So I got a 82 in a 50 speeding ticket in Queens County. The cop noted I had my 2 year old in the car. I was told I should seek assistance, but am worried of spending the money for an attorney since the City doesn’t plea. How much would it be total for a ticket like that? If I fight it, could they use my daughter against me and get me for reckless endangerment?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Kevin,
      You are being charged with going 32 miles over the speed limit which is a 8 point ticket and a $600 fine plus an $85 surcharge. Call us directly to discuss how we can help you fight your ticket and also to discuss the issues regarding your daughter at 888-883-5529. Although Queens TVB does not take plea bargains we can still fight this ticket and lower the fines and penalties in trial. Remember also that pleading guilty to an 8 point violation will result in an additional for $450 in fines for the DMV driver responsibility assessment (over 3 years) and you will be dangerously close to facing a license suspension moving forward. There are options available to you Kevin and I’m looking forward to discussing them with you. For more information on speeding tickets please check here.

    My post from this afternoon seems to be missing so here we go again.

    Received “Driver’s View Obstructed” (Section Sub Section: 37530) in Sullivan County, NY on Rt 17. Officer stated he was writing citation due to seeing childs toy loaded in back of car right inside rear hatch window of SUV. Toy was only a few inches wider than the headrest in the seat right in front of it.
    Vehicle does have two working and correctly aimed outside mirrors so I did have full unobstructive view behind vehicle using them.

    Is this a points ticket? Should I fight it?

  319. Rob

    Received ticket for “drivers view obstructed” (Section sub section 375-30) on Rte 17 in Roscoe, NY due to childs toy in rear of SUV by rear hatch window. Vehicle has two outside mirrors which had no obstructed view. Officer explained ticket to me and said ticket would be minor fine and no points. Is this correct? fight it or just send it in and then pay it?

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Rob,
      Section 375-30 Driver’s view obstructed carries a $150 fine and an $85 surcharge. The officer is right that there is no points to the ticket. You can possible fight to have the fine reduced in court or you can just pay the ticket, its your decision. Hope this helps!

    I got a speeding ticket in ny. I was over 28 mph on the 30 speeding zone and I got 1108D. Now I dont know how much will be the fine and how many point will they take from me?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Baheer,
      You have been charged with a 6 point ticket that carries a $300 fine and an $85 surcharge. In addition the state of New York can fine you the DMV Driver’s Responsibility Assessment which is $100 per year over 3 years. Also VA and New York are members of the driver’s license compact and will communicate traffic violation matters between each other, this can result in points against your VA license.

  321. Steven

    I am from NJ and recieved a ticket for doing 70 in a 65 on 684. From what I found, this is a 3 point ticket in NY and a 2 points on my NJ license. I know my insurance will not go up, but will there be any surcharges to the NJ DMV?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Steven,
      When 2 points are transferring to New Jersey you will not be fined a separate surcharge. States are not allowed to fine you twice for the same offense. For more information on New Jersey traffic tickets click here.

  322. Nick

    Hi, I got a ticket going 90 in a 65 zone and 30 min later, I got an another ticket going 82 in a 65 zone. those officers were from different town, so I have to go to different court to attend hearing. I do not have NYS drivers license, but it was my car that i was driving.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Nick,
      I guess when it rains it pours. The first speeding ticket 90/65 is 6 points, $300 fine and $85 surcharge. The second is 4 points, also $300 fine and $85 surcharge. You are very close to losing your driving privileges in NY as well (11 points for suspension). There are several questions that need to be addressed for your court cases so I would recommend that you give us a ring at 888-883-5529 so we can give you a free consultation. In addition to the fines you will also be paying a separate DMV driver responsibility assessment fee to NY (10 points is $600 fine paid out over 3 years). We can help you fight these tickets and save you hundreds in excessive fines, fees and possible insurance rate increases. See what kind of work we do by visiting our reviews page here.

  323. Sharon

    Hi, I have been driving for 20 years and today I got my first ticket. I was caught doing 40 in a 15 mile school zone. I wasn’t even aware that the building was still being used as a school I thought it was vacant. Anyway, the ticket was directed to lake grove village court and I need to appear in person. I was wondering why I need to appear in person and what normally happens in village court. I’ve never been through any of this before. Thanks so much

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hello Sharon,
      Depending on the time of the ticket you can be looking at a $300-$600 ticket. I would suggest you contact our office for a free phone consultation at 888-883-5529.

    Good day,

    I usually phone however it is frowned upon at work.

    I received a speeding ticket for 46 /30 in Irvington, NY while driving on S Broadway on 04-07-12 at 917PM. I have been advised by someone who got a similar ticket that it is $385 and 4 points. My initial appearance is on 03-18-13 at 900 am. I intend to plead not guilty and request a trial date so I can fight this with an attorney. I would like to know your fees. Thank you for your help.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Hassan,
      You are right that it is 4 points and $385 all together in fines and surcharges. If you hire an attorney you won’t have to go to court for even the initial appearance. Call us today to see how we can fight your ticket at 888-883-5529 and we can give you a quote.

    I am 23 years old and have a perfect driving record. I was pulled over for going 83 in a 65 zone. This was my first infringement and first time I have been pulled over. I was wondering if it would be beneficial to plead NOT GUILTY and go to court to get the ticket reduced?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Joshua,
      You should always contest a charge and try and fight the ticket. It will save you from costly points and fines when you fight the charge. You are being charged with a 4 point ticket that has a fine of $300, $85 surcharge. Depending on where you were ticketed you may be able to negotiate a reduction. In some courts in NY you are not allowed to negotiate a reduction. Call us at 888-883-5529 to see how we can help you fight the ticket and save money.

  327. Autumn

    I got a ticket that was originally for speeding but the officer gave me it for a dirty licence plate.. I don’t have much money so should I just plead guilty or go into court and have to pay the fines plus the court surcharge? Would I have to pay a court surcharge if I sent the ticket in and plead guilty?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You should contact the court and ask what your fine is for this case. Any surcharge that is added onto a traffic ticket is mandatory and is attached regardless whether you pay your ticket by mail or go to court. You may be able to fight to have the fine or penalty reduced in court. For more information about our firm please visit our website at http://www.ticketdefenselaw.com

    Hello, I got a ticket for going 41mph in a 30mph zone and got charged with 1180D. I was driving my friend home and he was giving me directions when I got pulled over. There were no recent signs (except for one that was further up the road) indicating the 30mph speed limit and I have no marks or points on my license what so ever. I sent the ticket in not-guilty and was offered a plea bargain for a 1110A, but still don’t think I deserve points on my license, do you think it’s worth going to trial?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Sally,
      We may be able to negotiate a better reduction on your behalf and get the results you are looking for.

    I was pulled over in the driveway to work. I’m a school bid driver. I passed the officer as I was coming in and he then turned around and followed me in,pulling me over. He said I was doing 35 in a 20 school zone. 1180c. Is it true I will have to do jail time and lose my cdl? I sent my ticket in not guilty. As I feel it wasn’t me he triggered.

    Thank you

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Megan,
      You are being charged with a 4 point speeding ticket, which is a $300 fine and an $85 surcharge. If you get 6 points on your license you will be required to pay the DMV fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment at $100 a year for 3 years. The fines listed above does not take into account what affect this ticket can have on your insurance.

      The good news is that we can help you fight this ticket and get you a more favorable outcome.

    Hi. I was pulled over today in Middletown NY going 79 in a 65. I am a resident of NJ. Do points carry over to my state, and what type of fines am I looking at. The only thing that I can see that I may be able to fight is that he wrote the car is black. My car is clearly a light blue. Is this worth my time to fight, or get a lawyer, or will I still most likely receive 4 points and the fines? Thank you for your time.

    Andrea

  334. james

    Is there a maximum legal surcharge on a speeding ticket in NY state. $200 ticket with an $850 surcharge seems excessive (going 88 in a 65 zone)

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      James,

      The surcharge is $85 not $850. If you would like to fight your ticket and same money on your fines and reduce the points on your license give us a ring a 888-883-5529.

  335. Erik

    HI i just got a driver responsibly statement saying i owe the dmv $825 from ticket i received in 2006. Is there any way to fight this or get it lowered, it’s a little ridiculous that im getting this 7 years after the fact.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Erik,
      Unfortunately if you have 6 points or more in New York you are charged with the Driver’s Responsibility Assessment which is issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. I would contact the NY’s DMV for more information about the fines and why you are getting the notice late. After you plead guilty to a charge and have 6 points or more the DMV charges you $100/yr for 3 years. For each point you have over 6 they charge an additional $25. For more information click here.

    Hello, I was pulled over in Wallkill, NY doing 82 in a 65. 1180D. I was driving from PA. I have never had an accident, or even been pulled over, can I use my clean driving record to fight the ticket? Will this do any good. I have been driving for 8 years. Also in order to use my good riving record, will I need to appear in wallkill town court or can I take care of this from my home?
    Thank you!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hello Charles,
      You are being charged with going 17 miles over the speed limit. It’s a 4 point ticket, $300 fine plus an $85 mandatory surcharge. If you have previous points on your license you can also be required to pay the DMV fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment at $100 a year for 3 years. The fines listed above does not take into account what affect this ticket can have on your insurance.

      The good news is that we can help you negotiate a reduced charge and help you fight this ticket. A reduced charge means less fines and points and keeping your insurance rates low.

    I got pulled over going 59 in a 30. I know not feeling well, not knowing it was 30, and not realizing I was going that fast is going to matter. I am just petrified I am going to he my license suspended. The last ticket I received was in 2011- in November. Idkkkk if that was a speeding conviction or it was reduced to a traffic violation…I can’t remember. Anyways- I just want to know if I should hire an attorney or take my chances that the da will lower it. Please provide me good news to put my mind at ease.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The good news is that an experienced traffic attorney can attempt to reduce or dismiss the ticket. Unless you have years of trial experience I would not recommend handling it yourself. Also, the result will depend on which court is handling the case so you might want to call us for a free consultation so we can tell you what an attorney can do for you.

    I received three tickets. Speed not reasonable and prudent. Stop beyond crosswalk and stop line. And when he asked for my liscense registration and insurance by accident i handed him an expired insurance ard but i have current insurance card. Is it worth it to go fight the tickets? What am i looking at in fines and points on my liscense? thank you

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Anthony,
      Speed not reasonable and prudent is NY V&T Law section 1180(a) which is $150 plus an $85 surcharge, with 3 points to your license. The next ticket is a 1151 – (c) Passed stopped vehicle at crosswalk/intersection which is also 3 points and a $150 fine and $85 surcharge. As long as your vehicle was insured and you only failed to produce your card you should be able to have that charge dismissed. The other two tickets are worth fighting because you are looking at 6 points to your license. 6 points means you will be charged the DMV driver responsibility assessment as well ($300 over 3 years). You should call me as soon as possible so I can give you a free consultation over the phone at 1-888-883-5529. We can fight all three tickets for our same low flat fee!

    We got into an accident around Albany, NY during a snow storm when the roads were not plowed very well and we slipped on a patch of ice or something and spun into the median. We were going somewhere between 20-30 MPH, and the cop did not see the accident, but issued us a ticket of 1180 (a) Speed not reasonable and prudent. We live in New Jersey about 3 hours from Albany, so I don’t know if it is worth driving all the way up there to fight it. Does the above information mean that the court fees would be 80-85$ if we go to court? Or do these surcharges apply either way. Also, do the NY points get transferred to my NJ license? And do you think that my insurance rates will increase? Thank you very much for your help.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The $80/85 surcharge on top of the base fine applies to all tickets but only if you plead guilty or are convicted. I do not advise pleading guilty for several reasons (1) you will likely be hit with the max fine; (2) 2 points will transfer to NJ; (3) your insurance company will hold you responsible for the accident and you insurance will increase (it might increase regardless but pleading guilty to a ticket certainly won’t help); (4) our track record in getting this ticket reduced especially where the officer did not witness the accident is very high; (5) if you hire our firm you will not have to come back for court.

    Hello Adam,

    Received a speeding ticket for going 86 in a 65 last week in Catskill (Greene County). Didn’t admit fault, officer was a nice guy and even made a note on the ticket I was polite and there were no problems. Was wondering what I’m looking at fine-wise and points-wise. Also wondering if there’s any point in possibly going to court (for context I was going 85 to pass a car in the slow lane going about 80, cop was hidden behind a tree on the left side of the road), thanks.

    Also for context: I received a ticket in Framingham, Massachusetts last year (’12) in the beginning of February for going 92 in a 65, pleaded guilty and paid a fine of about $230, from what I’ve read MA tickets don’t seem to affect New York that much but I’d like to hear what it really means from someone who knows this.

    Thanks again

      You are being charged with going 21 miles over the speed limit. It’s a 6 point ticket, $300 fine plus an $85 mandatory surcharge. At 6 points the DMV charges you an additional fine called the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment at $100 a year for 3 years. Your total in fines and surcharges is $685. This total does not take into account the increase to your insurance rates.

      Unfortunately, your argument will not hold up in court about speeding to pass another car going 80 in the slow lane. Essentially you are admitting guilt that you were in fact speeding. Driving over the speed limit is a regulatory offense, which means that if you violate the regulation (driving over 65) than you will be found guilty of the offense. The circumstances and your intentions while driving rarely ever come into play.

      We can help you fight this ticket and save you hundreds in fines and insurance rate increases. Please call me today for a free consultation over the phone at 888-883-5529. For more information on speeding tickets and the DMV driver responsibility assessment click here. – Adam

    I got a speeding ticket on 2/27/1998 71in a 55. I had mailed in and with a guilty plea. The address was very hard to reed but sent it in and it was returned to me about 3/30/1998 marked undliverable by the post office. So I just waited to see if they would send me a notice . I got the notice ON 11/22/2012 14 years later. I returned with a not guilty plea and now have a pre-trial confernce on 01/16/2013. Is there a statute of limitations or any thing I can do?

      No there is no statute of limitations on traffic violations unfortunately. You have to respond to it, or you can hire us to handle it for you so you do not have to go to court. Feel free to contact me directly. -Adam

    I was pulled over yesterday at 8:30 PM on LIE close to Cross Island Expressway exit, leaving the HOV lane. Although I am pretty certain I exited in the designated HOV exit zone, the trooper who pulled me over claimed that I crossed over the hazard markings and issued two tickets: moving unsafely from HOV to left (1128A) and driving over hazard markings (1128D). In addition, another ticked was issued as I had an expired insurance card; my insurance was in effect and I plan to send a signed letter from my insurance company to the Hempstead traffic court. Any advice regarding my chances in fighting these tickets? Appreciate any advice you could give me.

      Hi Dave,
      Sorry to hear about the tickets you received last week. These violations carry heavy fines and consequences. First, the moved from lane unsafely charge [1128(a)] has a $150 fine, 3 points to your license and an $85 mandatory NY State surcharge. The second charge, Drove across hazardous markings [1128(a)] carries a $150 fine and 3 points along with the $85 surcharge.

      6 points to your license means that you also will pay a DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment which is $100/year for 3 years. (Each point over 6, is an additional $25/year for 3 years. These consequences do not take into account the affect it can have on your insurance rates.

      Unfortunately the penalties are pretty tough, but we can help you fight your ticket as there are options available to you. Please call us today at 1-888-883-5529, we can give you a free consultation over the phone. Here is more information on Unsafe lane change and driving without insurance.

    Received a speeding ticket for going 65 in a 30 mph zone. What are my options if any? It was on an expressway that for 3 mile has the limit at 45 and the last half mile or so, it converts to 30. Any help/advice would be gladly appreciated. This happened in brooklyn ny

      Hi Nelson,
      You are being charged with going 35 MPH over the speed limit. That charge means 8 points to your license, a $600 fine and an $85 mandatory NYS surcharge. In addition you will be paying another penalty called the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment which in your case at 8 points will be $150 per year for 3 years. This does not take into account the affect it will have on your insurance. Unfortunately the penalties are pretty tough, but we can help you fight your ticket as there are options available to you.

    I got a speeding ticket in broom county going to 74 in a 55 zone. The office was a real d-bag and I would like to fight this speeding ticket and get it reduced to a no point traffic violation, possible something like a parking ticket. What are my chances in fighting the ticket? and what how much do you charge?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You are being charged with going 19mph over the speed limit that mean you are be fined $385 and you will get 4 points on your New York state license.

    i got a speeding ticket in clifton park NY. I was going 89 in a 65 zone. I don’t think it was a construction zone but the office marked it as so. What are the fines and points I am looking at and is there anyway I can fight this ticket?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Jerry it is going to be very hard to prove that you were not inside a construction zone. If you convicted of going 24 mph over the speed limit you will be looking at $385 is fines and 6 points on your license. I would highly suggest you hire a lawyer to fight on your behalf. If you were in a work zone you can be charged with VTL 1180f which means the total fine will double to $772.

    I was going 85 in a 65 zone to get back to school on time. When the officer pulled me over he was nice about it and reduced my speed to 70 on the ticket. Should I plead guilty or plead not guilty? On the back of the ticket it still says I was going 85.

      You are being charged with going 20 mph over the speed limit which means you will be fined $385 and you will get 4 points on your New York state license.

    Matt,
    Your son is looking at a 4 point violation with a $300 fine and a $93 surcharge. The real costs are with respect to auto insurance premiums, especially for a young driver. You should plead not guilty on this case and resolve the matter in court.
