If you were given a speeding ticket or other traffic violation that is not a crime in Nassau County, your case will most likely be heard by the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (TPVA). Your first (and probably best) step to take is consulting with an experienced traffic ticket attorney immediately to see what options are available for you.
Nassau County is about a 450 square mile area and is located east of New York City. Nassau County contains numerous county routes that are assigned numbers such as Nassau County Route 4. Nassau County contains numerous small towns, routes, and universities (e.g. Hofstra, Adelphi, Molloy, and Long Island University), where police officers are always on the lookout for drivers committing traffic violations, especially speeding.
Ignoring the ticket is never a good idea and failing to answer the ticket in a timely manner can result in having your driving privileges in NY suspended and even revoked. If you are being charged with a speeding ticket or other traffic violation, you have the option to fight the charge against you and possibly win a dismissal or negotiate a reduction in fines and points.
The fines for speeding tickets can range from $150 to $600, not to mention surcharges and possible DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment. The Driver Responsibility Assessment is a separate fine charged to you when you reach 6 points against your license in New York. At 6 points you will be fined $100 each year for 3 years. Each point that you get over 6 points is an additional $25 a year for 3 years.
An experienced traffic defense attorney can analyze your traffic violation matter and provide a solid defense in keeping your fines and exposure to costly points that affect your insurance to a minimum. In New York, points can have a significant impact on your current auto insurance rates. A lawyer can defend you in court and make sure to limit the damage a costly traffic ticket may cost you. In almost all cases, if you hire an attorney, you will not be required to come to court.
