Speeding Tickets in New York State

What Is The Cost of A New York Speeding Ticket?

Fines: If one is convicted of speeding in New York the fines will range from $45 to $600. Specifically, it will cost $45-$150 for speeding 1 mph to 10 mph over the limit; $90-$300 for speeding 11 mph to 30 mph over the limit; and $180- $600 for speeding 31+ mph over the limit.

Surcharges: New York automatically imposes an $88 or $93 surcharge (depending on whether the driver was in a city or a town/village) in addition to the fine for the speeding ticket.

Points:The New York DMV will assess 3 points for speeding 1 to 10 mph over the limit; 4 points for speeding 11 to 20 mph over the limit; 6 points for speeding 21 to 30 mph over the limit; 8 points for speeding 31 to 40 mph over the limit; and 11 points for speeding 41 mph or more over the limit.

Auto insurance premium increase: Insurance companies can increase drivers’ premiums based on the points assessed on their driving record. Rates can rise dramatically with just one speeding ticket. Numerous studies have found that a single traffic ticket can lead to up to a 30 percent increase in a driver’s auto insurance premium.

Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee (DRA): Drivers who receive six or more points as a result of violations that occurred within an 18-month period will be subject to an additional fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment fee (DRA). This penalty costs $300. An additional $75 will be imposed for each point after the six-point mark. This fee is paid to DMV and is separate and in addition to the court fines associated with the ticket.

Fines for second offenses and speeding in a work zone are even higher.

Hiring an Attorney to Fight a NY Speeding Ticket

The combination of fines, surcharges, and insurance increases that result from a speeding ticket can cost hundreds and even thousands of dollars. As such, in most cases hiring a lawyer to get the ticket reduced or dismissed (if possible) will save you money. For the vast majority of traffic violations in New York State, an attorney can reduce a speeding ticket to a non-moving violation such as a parking ticket or plea it down to a lesser-point ticket such as failure to obey a traffic control device (a two-point, non-speeding violation). Such reductions can lower or eliminate the impact on one’s driving record and auto insurance rates. While there are courts that will not reduce speeding tickets to a non-speeding offense, those are the exception and not the rule.

Additionally, once hired, a lawyer can take over the case. The driver can sit back and relax, letting him/her do all the work, including appear in court on the driver’s behalf.

How To Read a New York Speeding Ticket

speeding ticket sections

  • Section 1 - The Defendant’s Information

    These boxes display numerous identifying data about the defendant including name, address and information about the car being driven at the time of the stop. Note: If the officer made a minor mistake in the section (e.g. the officer wrote down the wrong color of the car) the case will NOT be dismissed.

  • Section 2 – The Charges

    The “Section Sub Section” box indicates which section of the law the defendant is being accused of violating. Below is a list of common New York traffic violations as well as the New York Vehicle & Traffic Law sections they fall under, the amount of points (if any) and the maximum fines and NYS surcharges attached to them. It also lists the location and officer’s information.

  • Section 3 – The Court

    This particular Section shows the name of the court and its address, along with a date and time for a response, either by postal mail or in person.

  • Section 4 – Plea of Guilty

    Drivers choosing to plead “Guilty” to the charges should fill out this Section and mail it to the address of the court mentioned in Section 3.

    Important Note: Many people think that if they plea guilty “with an explanation” there is a possibility that the court will consider their explanation and decide to find them not guilty. This is a big misunderstanding. Anyone who fills out this portion of the ticket and mails it in will be convicted of the offense.

    The only way to challenge the charges or get the charges reduced is to plead “not guilty” (see next Section). It is also a common belief that a person should plead “Guilty” if he or she knows that he was, in fact, guilty. It is important to keep two things in mind: Entering an initial plea of “Not Guilty” does not mean that there is no going back. To the contrary, all it does is preserve the right to a plea bargain or trial. A person can always change his/her plea to “Guilty” later on, and in most cases where a plea bargain is offered, he/she will be pleading guilty at some point, but to a less severe offense than the one initially charged with.

  • Section 5 – Plea of Not Guilty (recommended)

    Those who choose to plead “Not Guilty” must fill out section 5. The “Not Guilty” section features a spot to request a supporting deposition. A supporting deposition is a written sworn statement detailing the traffic violation and it is signed by the law enforcement officer who issued the ticket. Remember, it is everyone’s Constitutional right to to plead “Not Guilty.” A person can always change the plea later on, and if an acceptable plea bargain is offered, then he/she will ultimately be pleading guilty to that reduced charge.

How a New York Speeding Ticket Impacts Out-of-State Drivers

It is a common misconception that drivers from other states can and should ignore a New York speeding ticket. The reality is that New York State can suspend someone’s right to drive within its borders for failing to respond to or pay a speeding ticket issued here. Likewise, a driver who pays a New York speeding ticket can still face the consequences of points, insurance increases and hefty fines associated with a conviction. New York will also inform the home state of a driver of any convictions, which means those convictions are very likely to end up on a person’s driving record.

How each state handles a New York speeding ticket varies. Here are some examples:

  • New Jersey– A driver licensed in NJ who is ticketed for speeding in New York faces two points on their license for each conviction. These points are assessed by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. The points count towards suspension of both NY and NJ driving privileges. Read More
  • Connecticut– Drivers from Connecticut should be aware that New York does not allow drivers to plead nolo contendere (i.e. no contest) to speeding tickets. As such, the only way to avoid getting points for a New York speeding ticket is to get it dismissed or plea it down to a no-point violation. Read More
  • Pennsylvania–  In the Keystone State, driving 1-5 mph over the limit is not considered speeding. However, in New York it is a three-point offense with a maximum fine of $150 (+ the surcharge). Pennsylvania drivers will be happy to know that their home state will not assess points for out-of-state violations; however, their auto insurance companies may still raise their rates as though the violation occurred at home.

How to Fight a New York Speeding Ticket

Ebook How to Fight Sopeeding Ticket NYIt is not advisable that a driver attempt to fight a speeding ticket on their own. Most prosecutors, judges and even officers are adept at questioning individuals so as to extract information that can result in a conviction. Even a person who is truly honest and genuinely innocent can accidentally say something that can result in being convicted of a traffic offense. By contrast, a skilled and experienced traffic ticket attorney will know how to navigate such questions and present the driver’s case in the best possible light so as to mitigate or avoid a conviction.

Another reason drivers should consider hiring an attorney is that traffic court is nothing like criminal court. In most criminal cases, the prosecution must prove a defendant understood what they did was wrong or had deliberately intended to commit the crime. However, this does not apply in traffic court, which operates under the rule of strict liability in most cases. Strict liability removes the mental state component from the equation. In other words, a driver can be convicted of speeding regardless of whether or not he/she knew they were exceeding the limit or intended to speed.

As such, a driver who insists they were not aware that the speed limit was only 55 mph on the New York Thruway will not get out of a ticket. All that matters is whether or not it can be proven the driver was speeding. Similarly, there are no legally permissible justifications for speeding. For example, telling an officer that they really need to use the restroom, are having a baby, or any other excuse will is not likely to sway an officer or judge.

To understand the tactics needed and challenges faced in defeating a New York speeding ticket, one must turn to existing case law.

Case Law Analysis

New York case law reveals several crucial points to bear in mind as a driver.

First and foremost, a NY speeding ticket issued by a police officer who does not use a mechanical device like radar, and, instead estimates it will still be sufficient to convict a driver for speeding. (See People v. Olsen, 22 NY 2d 230.)

The court in Olsen explained its rationale by saying:

  • “The rule is well settled in this State that opinion evidence with regard to the speed of moving vehicles is admissible provided that the witness who testifies first shows some experience in observing the rate of speed of moving objects or some other satisfactory reason or basis for his opinion.” (See People v. Olsen, 22 NY 2d 230.)

Similarly, in People v. Dusing, the court summed up in one cogent statement a governing rule that applies to all drivers ticketed for speeding in New York. The court concluded,

      • “The sum of the combined Magri, Heyser and Marsellus holdings is: first, that a reading from an untested speedometer or radar device is admissible but is not[,] without more[,] sufficient for a speeding conviction; and, second, that the resulting deficiency in proof can be supplied by the testimony of qualified observers.” (See

    People v. Dusing 5 NY 2d 126.)

It is worth noting that the Dusing court said “observers,” not “officers.” This means a police officer does not have to be the one to testify against the driver. In most cases, if the prosecution finds any “qualified observer” (e.g. another driver on the road who saw the defendant), that person combined with the radar evidence will be enough to convict a person of speeding.

Second of all, the fact that a speeding ticket is not a crime appears to cut both ways. Since speeding is usually not a crime, it does not carry with it the severity of most criminal penalties. However, since it is not usually a crime, “not all the constitutional protections normally afforded to criminal defendants need be applied to those charged with such a minor offense.” (See People v. Phinney, 22 NY 2d 288.)

Lastly, a driver might be in for a rude awakening if he expects to be able to compel the TVB to turn over pertinent documents to him. Although the TVB has the right to do so, New York law does not require it to do so.

In Matter of Miller v. Schwartz, an attorney requested certain documents and information regarding the type of radar that was used to pull over his client. The TVB denied the request and explained that traditional discovery rules do not apply in the TVB. The lawyer took the case to court to compel the TVB to give him the documents. However, the court sided with the TVB and denied the attorney’s request.

The Schwartz court based its conclusion on the well-settled rule that there is no general constitutional right to discovery in criminal cases or administrative proceedings (See Weatherford v Bursey, 429 US 545 and National Labor Relations Bd. v Interboro Contrs., 432 F.2d 854, cert. denied 402 US 915).

Ultimately, this ruling reveals how difficult it can be—even for an attorney—to navigate through the complicated TVB system. If nothing else, this case shows drivers who get TVB tickets the importance of hiring an experienced traffic ticket attorney familiar with the TVB’s rules and procedures.

Common Questions About New York Speeding Tickets

  • Does New York report speeding tickets to other states?

    Yes. New York participates in the Driver’s License Compact, an interstate agreement that allows most states to share information about speeding and other traffic convictions that occur in their state. An out-of-state driver who pays or is convicted in court of speeding in NY will most likely see that conviction listed on their driving record which could lead to license suspension and other consequences.

  • How long does it take to get points off a license in NY?

    Points will remain on a driver’s license for as long as the conviction remains on the record (up to four years). However, 18 months after the date of the violation, those points will no longer count toward the total number needed for a suspended license or Driver Responsibility Assessment. Contrary to popular belief, a DMV-approved driver safety course will NOT remove points assessed on a license. Instead, it will increase the threshold of points needed for a suspension by a maximum of four.

  • How much does New York insurance premiums go up for a speeding ticket?

    There is no single answer to this as it depends on so many factors, including past driving history, age, even the level of income and education. Some studies have found that a single speeding ticket can increase rates by 30% or more.

  • What is the statute of limitations on an New York speeding ticket?

    Technically, there is no statute of limitations for a speeding ticket in New York. Drivers should not be fooled into thinking they can ignore a New York speeding ticket hoping it will “expire.” Once a speeding ticket is handed to the driver, the clock is ticking for the driver to respond with a “Guilty” or “Not Guilty” plea. Failing to respond to a New York speeding ticket will result in an immediate driver’s license suspension.

Other Types of Speeding Tickets

Data on New York Speeding Tickets

New York State law enforcement agencies hand out an average of 700,000 speeding tickets each year. In 2016, the most recent year for which data was available, officers issued 712,370 speeding tickets to drivers, the most in the last eight years. Speeding usually makes up just shy of 20 percent of all traffic tickets issued in New York.

[visualizer id=”6990″]

See all speeding ticket data

More than half of all New York speeding tickets are issued by State Troopers. In 2016, NYPD alone contributed more than 16 percent of all speeding tickets given out statewide, part of a gradual uptick which started in 2014 with the onset of the city’s Vision Zero initiative

Out of New York’s 62 counties, Erie County tags the most drivers for speeding (56,000). This second-most ticketed county is Westchester (44,000). New York State averages a conviction rate of about 93 percent, although almost 54 percent are convicted of a different charge than the one issued by the officer.

As the data shows, speeding tickets are one of the most commonly issued citations in New York State. With the number of speeding tickets written each year increasing, drivers must make every effort to keep the points and convictions off their driving record. Even a single ticket can impact auto insurance premiums, but a second or third ticket can result in higher fines and a suspended license, which will further impact insurance rates.

    I was written a Speeding ticket in November of 2017 for speed in zone 11-30 and plead not guilty. I was issued a court date of 11/13/2018 and missed it. What are the options available to me?

      Michael – I would contact the court as soon as possible in order to address this ticket, as you are potentially suspended for failing to appear.

    I got a traffic ticket for going 96 in a 65 MPH zone in Preble city, Cortland County, NY I know that if I plead guilty, I will get 8 points which will increase my fines and insurance very high. Is there any chance of reducing the impact?

    • Ronen Cohen

      Pleading not-guilty and contesting this ticket will allow you to mitigate the impacts of this ticket.

      November 23, 2018

      Aothman – Unfortunately, going with the ‘flow of traffic’ is not a defense to a speeding ticket. I would nonetheless contest this 4 point speeding ticket as there are fines, along with a significant increase to your insurance rates.

    I had gotten a speeding ticket about two years ago (Speeding 31+) And I never paid it off. I plead not guilty and paid a $40 cash bond to schedule a court date because I don’t not have enough to pay a $300 ticket plus an assessment fee. I missed my court date and now I have to go back. I would like advice on what to do because I do not want this to drag on and I would like to settle it. Should I hire an attorney?

    • Ronen Cohen
      September 28, 2018

      Terence – I am assuming this violation is before the traffic violations bureau. As such, there is no option available for plea bargaining. The only way to resolve this matter is to cross examine the officer and attempt to obtain a dismissal at trial.

    Hello. In 2007 I was stopped by NY police for speeding (+31mph). I sent some documents in court and the court sent me to Russia the requirement to pay $255. I didn’t pay it 🙁
    I lost that paper and don’t know even court name.
    Where to start settling this situation? I plan back to the USA

    Thanks

    Hello, I have a NJ driving license and I got an 1180d ticket today on I684 in Bedford NY. The ticket says that I am being charged for doing 74 on 65mph zone. Although on the lower part of the paper there is this additional information chapter where the officer wrote that I was doing 86 on 65 , verified by radar. Can you please advice?

    • Ronen Cohen
      August 16, 2018

      The officer may have charged you with a lesser speed – known as a ‘roadside reduction.’ I would recommend contesting this violation, as NJ will assess 2 points against your driving record. Furthermore, your insurance rates are likely to increase because of this offense.

    I got two traffic tickets, the first one for going 81 in a 65 MPH zone and the second one for not due care for an emergency vehicle stopped or standing (VLT 1144-AA). I don’t know how to proceed since I’m a foreigner, I was pulled over while I was on vacations in New York City with my family. Now I´m back in my country, but I have plans to return to the US in the future. So I don’t want to have any troubles, such as I can’t drive in the US or that I can’t renew my visa in the future. Could you please guide me on how to proceed with this tickets? I’m aware of the speeding, as on any country, but I wasn’t aware that I must change lane to the left when a police vehicle is standing at the side of the road.

    • Ronen Cohen
      July 13, 2018

      Mauricio – Many drivers are unaware of this law, as it is not as common as a speeding violation. I would at least address, if not contest this violation to assure that no issues arise with any future visits to NY.

  • Philip
    June 26, 2018

    A few paragraphs above it states that after 18 months from the date of violation, points cannot be used to calculate a suspension or driver assessment. Is that true in NYC as well? I was convicted of 2 separate tickets. The first date of violation was over 3 years ago…convicted about a year ago (4 points). The second date of violation was over 2 years ago and I was just convicted this month (11 points). The two dates of violation were within 18 months of each other, but it was over 2 years ago. My license was suspended and I received a a bill for the assessment based on 15 points. Do I have a case to appeal the penalty…at least the assessment?

    • Ronen Cohen
      July 11, 2018

      New York state handles assessment fees & suspensions uniformly. When determining whether these items will be at issue, simply look to when you received the ticket, ignoring the conviction date. If you have received multiple offenses within any 1.5 year period, the assessment fee / suspension issues will be a factor. If you pull your drivers abstract, I would be happy to review it for you as a courtesy.

    I just received a VTL 1180-d (1) speeding ticket in Staten Island yesterday (coming off the 440). Officer says I was going 73 in a 40 but the arrest type is patrol. I don’t think I was going that fast. This is my first speeding violation. What do I do? Am I mandated to appear in court?

      HW- You are facing an 8 point speeding ticket that carries substantial fines ($693), assessment fees ($450), and a substantial increase in your insurance rates. Hiring an attorney will allow you to contest this ticket without personally appearing in court. I should note that this is a trial court with no plea bargaining possible.

    Hello
    I got a speeding ticket on 3/25/18 on a 50 mph zone the officer pulled me over saying I was doing 73 , which I recall I picked up some speed when there was traffic and then switched to another lane to pick up speed and enter the highway. The violation says I got a 11-30 mph over the limit which is a 6 point , I was going to plead guilty just to get this over with but maybe there’s something there can be done about this, what do you recommend?

    • Ronen Cohen
      April 11, 2018

      Thomas – we recommend contesting this 6 point speeding ticket as it will significantly increase your insurance rates. Furthermore, fines and assessment fees may total nearly $600.00. In order to provide more information, please provide us with the location of the incident.

    I was just ticketed for going 67 in a 55 mph zone… however I set my cruise control at 60 and that’s what my speedometer was reading around at the time the police car lights went off and I got pulled over and received a ticket… when this trooper pulled me over he asked me if I knew how fast I was going, which I replied “around 60… that’s what I set my cruise control on anyways” and he replied “no, you were going way faster than that”… this trooper didn’t even ask me where I had been but immediately asked me if I had been drinking, which I replied no (which I hadn’t been), and then asked my passenger about his day and if he had been drinking (which I really don’t understand why he would question my passenger about his day/whereabouts before asking me about my day/whereabouts, the actual driver)… anyways, I’ve never received a ticket for a traffic violation before besides maybe like 3 parking tickets (wrong side of the road and time running up on a parking meter)… this is completely new to me. I literally work 7 days a week between two different jobs and I’m also going to school part time for my masters degree. I’m also dealing with physical health issues and can barely afford to live a “normal life” as it is. I can’t afford this ticket or any points on my license as it may increase my insurance. I also can’t afford a lawyer! I know for a fact that I was not going as fast as this officer stated that I was. I take laws very seriously and my masters degree that I’m working on right now is in law… I know the basics for tickets but actual/personal experiences are completely different… I really could use personal advice from others who have dealt with this… any tips please?

    I live in New Jersey and my driving record is clean, I always follow the traffic flow, never faster, the other day I was doing the same the traffic was running between 60 and 65 mph at the start of the highway , because (every day) after a few minutes the traffic slows down at about 15 or 25 mph due to heavy traffic, suddenly I sow the police lights behind me and I move my car to the next lane so he can go through, but he also move behind me and he game a speeding ticket saying that I was going at 62 mph I told him I didn’t realized because I was goin with the flow like every day I know the speed limit in NYC highways is 50 mph but without traffic nobody do that, anyway it is anything I can do so I don’t get any point in my new jersey driver license and consequently race my insurance premium? the officer say that out of state don’t get points, but online I check and it says the contrary
    see if you can help me
    thanks

      Benito – the officer is incorrect. NJ will assess two (2) points for any moving violation committed in another state. In order to contest this ticket, you must bring this case to trial. Unlike some courts, you are under the jurisdiction of the ‘traffic violations bureau,’ which requires a trial for any contested ticket. We can assist you fight this ticket without the need for your personal appearance. Please note – travelling with the ‘flow of traffic’ is not a defense to speeding. Rather, we must prove that the officer was unable to meet their burden of proof. If you would like to discuss your case in further detail, please do not hesitate to contact us at 888-883-5529.

    I was ticketed for speeding 21 over 50 in NYC in November 2017 (6 pts) and 21 over 50 in NYC, once more today. Is my license automatically suspended even though I plead not guilty, or does the suspension take into effect if convicted?

      Kevin –

      Penalties will only be imposed should you be found guilty of these violations.

    I had plead guilty and send a letter hoping they take into consideration my explanation and remove the guilty but I learned I got 6 points on my driver license so I called the court they said I should hire an attorney to undo my plea… is this something you do ? I live in NJ and I have no points in my license until now… Thanks

    I was driving 83 over 65 supposedly. I was following the flow of traffic, pretty much following someone who was going 80+. From the area i was pulled over was in Avoca (the ticket says) which is all open road and surrounded by trees and hills/mountains. Short story, we both get pulled over, him first and the cop flags me down. Officer says were both going same speed, but that other guy was always 10-15 car lengths ahead of me. I am not from NY. I was going to up to NY to buy a car. I live on the southern tip of Virginia which is about 11 hours away. This would be my first offense. No problems with alcohol/drugs or anything of that nature. I had all my accidents go in my favor (not my fault). And ive had fix-it tint ticket. That is all. What can you recommend?

    September 18, 2017

    Hello, I am an international student from Germany and got a speeding ticket for driving 101 in a 65. I am only spending one semester in New York State. The officer caught me by radar. I know that I did something wrong and I am feeling terribly bad about it however in Germany we have certain areas in which there is no speed limits at all like on a highway (Autobahn). It was my first time driving over here. I never committed any other crimes. I have only been in the U.S. for 3 weeks. I was not used to mph… Nevertheless I defiantly know that all this are no excuses… It just was my fault but maybe those factors can reduce the fine? I wonder what the best thing to do is. Please help me out.
    Thank you in advance,
    Marcel

      Marcel – there are two court systems in NY, both of which handle tickets differently. Once system – the traffic violations burea, is a trial court with no plea bargaining. The other court system allows for plea negotiations. I suggest you contact us with this information so we may advise appropriately. You may reach us for a free consultation at 888-883-5529.

    I am Paresh Kamlani a resident of Dubai and had my vacation in USA last month and committed operating PA Reg KLH8144 Southbound on I-81 AT 105mph in a posted 65mph zone in Chenango Town, Broome.

    The officer Gave me a uniform traffic ticket and I Filled up the form as “GUILTY”

    In connection with that, I would like to know what would be the next steps to do?
    Should I send the original form in the address provided and when can I get the amount for me to pay right away, and can I use my credit card as well?

    Please send me the steps.

      Paresh – While we do not advise you to plead guilty as there are points and fines associated with this ticket – if you so choose, you may send this ticket to the court. They will thereafter send a fine notice to your attention will an likely be paid with a credit card.

    Hello, I was pulled over on the I-290 for doing 81 in a 55. I am 18 and this is the first time I’ve been pulled over and written a ticket, nor have I ever had any issue with the law.

    Hi there,
    I received a ticket overspeeding 75 mph in a 55 zone. It belongs to Brant Town Court. To avoid toll road I-90, I used the road 20 and 5.
    I live in Louisiana state, am an international student. I can’t appear in the court again. Can’t afford another trip.
    Just a minute before stopping by police was a red light. Means I stopped there, so I did not drive too fast for a long time. I was not familiar with the road and the brand new rental car which was very smooth.
    1. What should I do? Guilty or Not?
    2. How much will I be charged?
    3. Is it going to be recorded?
    4. Can I hire a lawyer?
    5. Can he succeed?
    6. How much then will I have to pay to the lawyer?
    7. Can I change the ticket to non-speeeding?

    Thanks,

    June 16, 2017

    Hi, I was given a speeding ticket for 100 in a 65 on interstate 390 SB, town of Cohocton 5158, Steuben County. The officer listed on the ticket that it was a traffic infraction and not a misdemeanor and told me that it was a $160 fine but it doesn’t say this anywhere on the ticket or how to pay it, just the plea guilty or not guilty options. My problem is that I live in the UK and cannot attend any court dates so phoned them and asked what I should do but the court was no help! The ticket is on my UK license and they havnt copied my complete address across to the ticket so fairly certain anything the send me won’t actually get to me back home. I travel back to the US frequently so don’t want the ticket hanging over my head but also don’t really want to put a guilty plea (as I’m certain the speed was overestimated) and have the court ask for a fine higher than the 160 the officer stated it would be, which i would be happy to pay. Thanks

    • RLF Attorneys
      June 27, 2017

      Robert, pleading guilty will amount to a total of 8 points on your license, as well as a fine of $600, court fees of $93 and a Driver’s Assessment Fee of $450.00. I suggest you contest this ticket to avoid / mitigate these consequences.

    Hi. I have a CT license and have gotten 4 speeding tickets in less than 18 monhs. I pleaded guilty for 2 and pleaded not guilty for 2. Both of the ones I am pleading guilty for were less than 20 MPH over the speed limit. How do I ensure that I will not lose NY driving privileges?

    • RLF Attorneys
      May 25, 2017

      Helen – in order to prevent license suspension, you must contest the remaining two tickets. You must first assure that no further speeding violation is assessed against your record. License suspension may also occur if 11 points are accumulated.

  • Alex

    Hi, I’m only 17 years old but just received my first speeding ticket, 56 in a 30. I still have my DJ License and have read that it’s probably going to be revoked. I’m extremely worried about this, as well as the auto insurance prices that I’ve read about. The next months will be extremely busy for me and my family so me having my license is almost essential. I’m very stressed and just wondering what are my options here.

    • RLF Attorneys
      May 25, 2017

      Alex, if you are convicte of this offense, your license will be suspended. However, you have the ability to contest this violation by pleading not guilty and bringing this matter to trial.

    Hi I have received three speeding violations in NYC in a total of 18 months, two of them was a few days apart because of family medical emergencies, and the first one was about 15 months ago i tried explaining to the cop but he said to plead not guilty to it.. I understand that 3 violations within 18 months is automatic license revocation.. Is there anything I can do to keep my license in tact? I have not been convicted guilty of any of the violations yet.

    • RLF Attorneys
      April 24, 2017

      James – the ‘speed not reasonable’ ticket does not necessarily allege that you were travelling at a speed in excess of the limit. Rather, this ticket is given when your speed was not ‘reasonable.’ This 3 point ticket is highly subjective.

I was traveling upstate with my 3 kids and husband in the car to attend my nieces Birthday party. I don’t feel I was going this fast as I carefully watched my speed our entire trip.

    • RLF Attorneys
      March 13, 2017

      Amelia – This 4 point speeding violation, aside from the fine of approximately $393, will likely increase insurance rates. I therefore suggest you plead not guilty. If you have any specific questions, you may reach us at 888-883-5529 for a free consultation.

    Hi, I was pulled over on I490 heading east in the town of gates. I was doing 65 that reduced to 55 that I forgot about. I got on at chili center cold water road with no one behind me. I passed a few vehicles on the left, one vehicle got behind me and then into the right hand lane. I noticed a vehicle driving at a high rate of speed aggressively, as I tried to pass the vehicle on my right, he would increase his speed, we did this twice, on the last passing attempt I gunned it passing the vehicle at 77 in 55, that is when the trooper got me. He was the one that was directly behind me within 1 car length tailgating me I honestly believe base on math that the trooper was speeding way before he saw me. Article 1 114b. Also article 23 1104 (a) and (b) (e) and article 25 1129(a). I plan on fighting this but need some advise.

    I was issued a speeding ticket stating that I was going 85 mph on a 55 mph highway. This is my first violation as well as my first police stop. The officer also put the wrong address on my speeding ticket. What should I do? I don’t even think the officer looked me up in the system, he would’ve seen that my address is different as well as the address is on my registration.

    • RLF Attorneys
      February 21, 2017

      Lindsy, this is a 6 point ticket that carries a $300 fine, $93 court fee and a $300 Driver’s Assessment Fee. You present an interesting question regarding the officer’s listing of an incorrect address. Whether the judge rules in your favor might depend on how close this mistake is to the actual location of the incident.

    Hi – Hi I got a speeding ticket for going 76 on 45 mph zone and the description of the violation is “SPEEDING IN POSTED WORK ZONE” and the place of occurence is I81 N AT THE BIGELOW ST OVERPASS , BROOME county. The court is Binghamton city court. Officer didnt mention any fine on the ticket instead asked me to post the ticket to court and proceed from there. I am holding PA licence. The officer asked me if I knew why I was stopped and my response was put in the deposition as ” I was speeding. somewhere between 75 and 78″. This is my first ticket ever received, and there are no points on my license. Thanks.
    Questions
    1) since my acceptance of speeding is recorded in deposition – Does it make sense to plead not guilty?
    2) If i plead guilty , this is 8 points – How much would be my total fine? I called the court , they said it would be anywhere between 500-955 plus DMV DSS FEE.
    3) PA DMV said that NY points do not carry over to PA. Do you know if this would still impact my PA CAR Insurance? Does insurance compnay check nationally?

    • RLF Attorneys
      February 21, 2017

      I suggest you contest this ticket, even though you have made an admission in the supporting deposition. The total fine for this 8 point work zone violation is $600 x 2 – $1,200, + $93 court costs, +$450 driver responsibility assessment fee. While the points will not transfer to PA, the violation will, thus increasing your insurance rates.

    Hi, this morning I was driving to work on I-87 Northbound (within the Wilton, NY area) and received a ticket for going 74 mph in a 65 mph zone. This is my first offense, never been pulled over before, never received a ticket or been in trouble for speeding. I really don’t want any points on my license, nor a massive fine since this is a first time offense. Should I pled “not guilty?” If so, should I request a deposition? This is all new to me, so I want to make sure I take the appropriate precautions. Thanks!

    • RLF Attorneys

    Hi! I was driving around 45-50 mph going Westbound on I90 (65 speed limit), which I deemed as reasonable and prudent as the cars in front of me were going roughly the same speed. They began to brake, however, and so did I, but due to conditions, I lost control, and hit the guardrail. The officer gave me a ticket for speed not reasonable or prudent, with an arrest type of 5 – Property Damage, but no speed listed on the ticket. He did not give me a supporting deposition at the time of my ticket. Nobody was injured, the only damage was to my car. Can I get this ticket dismissed?

    • RLF Attorneys
      February 20, 2017

      It is possible to contest your 3 point ticket on numerous grounds, which we would be happy to discuss with you in further detail. Please note – this violation does not list an actual speed, as the violation itself ignores the actual speed limit of the road.

    Hi, I got a speeding ticket for driving 92 in 65 mph zone on the highway in NY State. My court date is this coming Wednesday (2/1/17). This is a 6-piont fine, correct? In court, my plan is to argue that I was following the flow of the traffic (it was a 2-lane highway and I was behind at least two other cars that drove about my speed and that were not pulled over), there were perfect conditions (sunny, dry, good sight), and it was a downhill section of the highway.
    How are my chances of not getting 6-points due to this incident?

    • RLF Attorneys
      February 6, 2017

      This is a 6 point ticket that carries $393 in fines, and $300 in assessment charges. The “flow of traffic” argument will not be successful. This argument simply states that other drivers should have been ticketed. To restate – you will be found guilty if your sole contention is that you were going with the flow of traffic.

    I have had three speeding tickets in the last 18 months. Just received my third. The other two have been reduced to 11-10A’s. It says that if you get three speeding tickets your license will be revoked. If the other two have been reduced, will that mean that I have only one speeding ticket and my license is not at risk? I’m very concerned about losing my license- I just want to know if they all add up to three speeding tickets

    • RLF Attorneys

      They will not add up to three speeding violations. The issues is whether you were convicted of 3 speeding violations, not charged with them.

      Ginger – each court handles plea bargains differently, and the specific outcome will be at the discretion of the prosecutor – and ultimately the judge.

    Sat. 9.24, received moving violation. 65 in 55. Officer said was going 75, however on the ticket he put down 65 in 55 and radar. He also said I should claim guilty and there will be no points. I am a MA licensed driver and investigating if MA will add on points. Should I fight the ticket being 65 in 55 based on what the violation states. The fee is only $188, I will pay more in gas/tolls to fight the ticket.

    • RLF Attorneys
      September 26, 2016

      Dan – the real issue is whether this violation will impact your insurance rates. Typically speeding violations increase insurance rates by 20-25% for approximately 3-5 years. Where did this violation occur?

      • Dan G.
        September 27, 2016

        Thank you for the response. Violation took place in NY. I-95, the Court would be New Rochelle. The office stated that if plead guilty and being from MA, no points would accrue. MA will add 2 points to my insurance, however I am not positive if NY reports to MA.

        • RLF Attorneys
          September 29, 2016

          Dan – generally speaking, violations transfer between the states for insurance purposes.

    I got a speeding ticket going 75 in a 55 mile zone in Wilton, NY. Based on Direct Observation and verified with radar. I had 4 speeding tickets between 4/2012-5/2015 in Idaho. This is my first offense in NY. What am I facing with this ticket?

    • RLF Attorneys
      September 23, 2016

      This ticket carries 4 points on your NY license, a court fee of $393 and a significant auto insurance increase.

    I was pulled over for 80 in a 55 in Greene County, in the town of Cairo. I have chosen to plead not guilty and I have never received any tickets for anything ever before. I will be going to Officer Training School for the Air Force in January, and I would rather not have any tickets. Thank you for any advice.

      Raphael – this depends on where you are licensed to drive. In NY, you may not receive 11 points in any 18 month window of time.

    September 7, 2016

    Hi, I received a speeding ticket verified via pace alleging I was traveling at 90mph in a 55mph zone on norther state parkway on 9/2. Officer stated in his deposition he was finishing up a car stop at exit 41 and i had passed him at which point he “catch up and pace” for 15 secs at 75 ft at 90mph to exit 40. Mind you the exits are over 1.5miles from each other and he was speeding excessively just to catch up.

    I would like to consult my options as I do not want any points or an increase in insurance premiums. I have not had a moving violation in the last 4-5 years.

    • RLF Attorneys
      September 9, 2016

      Sonesh – this 8 point ticket carries substantial fines, penalties, and insurance implications. You may contest this ticket by pleading not guilty and scheduling the case for trial – at which point – you will be able to present your case before a judge.

  • Ramzi
    September 6, 2016

    I received a ticket for going 91 on a 60 zone. The officer told us that he estimated my speed based on his speed but when I read the ticket at home it said radar. Since we are from Canada we did not know the conversion of 91Miles vs km. My wife was able to see the my speed on the GPS which was 125km or 77.6MPH. My court date is next Wednesday, what are my options?

    • RLF Attorneys
      September 9, 2016

      Ramzi – you are looking at an 8 point ticket in NY, that carries a maximum penalty of $693, and assessment fees of $450. In order to provide further information, we need to know what specific court is handling your case.

    i got a ticket yesterday for doing 91 on a 50 on the i278 in bronx new york. the cops set up a speed trap and pulled over 6 other vehicles in the 5-10 minutes that i was being pulled over. on my ticket it does not say that they used radar it just says excessive speeding . this is my first ticket i am 23 and had my license since i was 18 .if i am found guilty that will be 11 points which is a suspension.. i feel like the cop was being [rude – ed.] and put down 91 knowing that it would get my license suspended . what would be your recommendations?

    • RLF Attorneys
      August 23, 2016

      Christopher – You need to contest this ticket in order to allow yourself a chance at protecting your license. This court system does not have plea bargaining, so there is unfortunately no way to plead guilty to a lesser offense. Your case must be contested at trial.

  • Florent

    Hello,

    3 weeks ago on the way back from Florida to Canada, my father (Motor Home 31 Feet) and me (Towing a 30 Feet boat with a Dodge Pick Up) were arrested by a cop telling us that we were both at 60 Mph in a zone at 45. We told him that it is impossible with our loads and ask him to show us his proof. I said no. He gave us a paper (One to my father and one to me) without any amount on it. When we protested, he left saying that we will be heard on the court. I attached the ticket of my father but I am unable to attach mine. Let me know how to send it. We are from Quebec so English is not our first language. Let me know if you can do something.

    Thanks

    • RLF Attorneys
      August 23, 2016

      An officer typically would not ‘arrest’ you for a speeding ticket, unless there were outstanding / additional violations at issue. You may contact us at 888-883-5529 to clarify the specifics of your traffic violation.

  • Nicole
    August 8, 2016

    I just received a speeding ticket for going 75 in a 55 MPH zone on route 104 West heading to Rochester in the town of Wolcott. I was passing a truck that was initially going slow and then sped up as I legally tried to pass him. That’s when the state trooper got me. I live in Rochester, NY. The reason I was in a hurry to pass the truck was that my 7 year old daughter thought she broke her foot and I was trying to get home and take her to urgent care. Is it worth going back to the town of Wilcott to fight it (I am a teacher and would have to take time off of school)? The last ticket I received was 12 years ago. Please advise.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 10, 2016

      Nicole – you are facing a 4 point ticket that has a fine of $393. As there are additional insurance implications, I suggest you fight this ticket. Hiring an attorney will allow you to contest your ticket without personally appearing.

  • Noel Wilson

    What is a “non-speed infraction” in New York State?

    In pleading not guilty to a speeding ticket 81/65, I got a reduced ticket Section 1110.A – Disobeyed a traffic control device (2 points, Non-Speed Infraction)

    I am a New Jersey driver.

    What is the approximate fine. Tickets also says 2 points. Is this also 2 points in New Jersey?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 5, 2016

      Noel – 2 points transfer to NJ, and you will have 2 points against your NY driving record. The maximum fine for this offense is $243. The difference between the classification of offenses – speeding, non-speeding, effects the impact on insurance.

  • Kazimierz J. Chmielowiec

    Hi. I received a ticket for going 70 in a 50 zone left lane going north on I-95 in Bronx, NY. Ticket says 11-30 over the limit is $203. I have a clean driving record. I was tail-gated and annoyed by a vehicle behind me so I decided to pass the vehicle on my right to allow the tailgating vehicle behind me thru. That’s when I got clocked.
    If I plead guilty, what will be the total fine, or if I plead not guilty how much will that cost me. I live in Connecticut so I would not want to appear in court. Thank you.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 3, 2016

      If you plead or are found guilty, the total fine would be $203. Contesting your ticket requires a personal appearance on your behalf. However, hiring an attorney would allow you to fight your ticket without physically appearing in court.

    Hi, I received an speeding ticket on Hw 36 – North (Sonyea Rd) after exiting from I390. Sheriff has recorded my speed to be 64 MPH in 40 MPH speed limit. My GPS was showing 55 MPH and my Odometer was showing 57 MPH. I never saw the speed reduction on my GPS and I did not see any board with 40MPH speed limit. Officer didn’t mention any fine on the ticket instead asked me to post the ticket to court and proceed from there… This is my first ticket in last 3 years and was driving car in India as well for 4 years. Kindly advise…

    • Adam Rosenblum
      July 28, 2016

    • Adam Rosenblum

  • Zach
    July 12, 2016

    Hello,
    I received a ticket on the I-287. I was caught by radar going 81 on 55.. I am 17 years old and when the officer asked why, I told him I was getting back to my next class.

    I understand it’s a 6 point violation, probably $400 and DRA. However I have a junior license.
    I got this ticket in May and I went to the courthouse in Harrison, NY and the men there told me to plead not guilty, so I did. They said I don’t have to pay anything and to wait 4 to 6 months!!! Until a letter comes in the mail.

    But I’ll be 18 in December, so if the court date is after December, will I be charged as a full licensed driver??

    Are there ways for me to change my mind now and choose to plead guilty?

    Also I understand the suspension part for 60 days. Any chance that can get reduced to 30 days?

    Thank you,
    Zach

    • Adam Rosenblum
      July 12, 2016

      Zach – The penalty for this violation will look back to your driving status at the time you received the ticket. Thus – if you are found guilty of a speeding ticket, your license will be suspended.

    Hello,

    In mid April I received a speeding ticket for 77 in a 55. my court date was in the middle of May, but I was unable to attend because I was not in the area. I eventually forgot about the ticket for some time and realize now it’s months later and I have not absolutely nothing to fix the situation. I tried calling the Town Court to explain my situation and perhaps reschedule a court date, but no one is answering and their voice mailbox is full. Do you have any suggestions for me? I am in desperate need and have been having a very difficult time with it as it is my first ticket and my parents have absolutely no idea how to handle it. Any advice would help.

    Thank you

Officer didnt mention any fine on the ticket instead asked me to post the ticket to court and proceed from there. I am holding NJ licence,

    • Adam Rosenblum

      Vardan,

      A speeding ticket in NY of 49/30 is a 4 point offense, a $300 fine and $93 court costs. A disobey traffic device ticket is only a 2 point offense. My concern would be that if the officer provided you with a roadside reduction, which it appears occourred, you may be precluded from negotiating a further reduction.

It was not intentional and I didn’t know the speed limit since I am new to the location (I am here on internship from Ohio) and haven’t driven that road very often. This occurred on Route 11 in the town of Antwerp, in Jefferson county. I was wondering what the penalty in terms of points and cost would be for this ticket.

    I recieved a ticket coming on to City Island in the Bronx, coming around the curve at Turtle Cove. Coming off the Hutchinson Pkwy onto Turlte Cove and City Island the speeds change at almost every turn so it is unnoticable and there is a shooting range there where police offices race to get to at very high rates of speed. The office pulled me over said that i was going 51 in a 30mph zone. I absolutely dispute this, i was coming around a curve, there was no way I could have been going that fast and a car which went into the shooting range way ahead of me, which sped past me, was not stopped. Why me? What are my options?

    • Adam Rosenblum

      Teena – what court is handling your ticket? You are facing a 6 point ticket that carries substantial penalties and assessment charges. Additionally, this will likely have an impact on your insurance rates. I therefore suggest you fight this ticket to avoid / mitigate the consequences.

    I got a ticket for driving at 85 at a 65 zone in Route 17, Rockland.
    I was going with the traffic at 75. I didnt notice the cop car, I guess the car ahead of me must have noticed and immediately reduced speed and changed to right lane. I also wanted to move to right lane. So drove a little faster to move ahead of him and switch to right lane and thats when the officer stopped me.
    Should I plead guilty or shouldnt? Please advise

    Though he got me on radar going 14 mph over the limit in Brooklyn, the MPH was left blank on the speeding ticket for an 1180D “Speeding Posted.” The officer advised I pay the lower fine (the 1 to 10 mph fine), saying if I chose to go to court he’d testify I was going 14 miles over the limit. I was very respectful, did not admit to anything but stated I was doing 25 mph, yet apologized IF I had committed any offense, so I’m not sure if he’s giving me an out, or if that’s a tactic to get me to pay something and if he’d truly prevail?

      Maggie – it is difficult to say what the officer intends with their course of action. I believe it is safer to fight the underlying ticket to prevent the consequences of such a violation.

    Hi Adam,

    I rec’d my first speeding ticket this morning, being pulled over on Sunrise Highway doing 85mph in a 55mph zone. This is my first time, so I’m not quite sure of the process or what the next steps are. On the ticket it says “mail this not guilty plea within 48 hours” – is this something I have to do even if I hired an attorney? I would think this ticket warrants going through an attorney. I’d really love to not have 6 points on my license and skyrocketed insurance rates from this one infraction. I’m not sure what your fees are, or if you’d be able to take this case, but I sent an email in the hopes to discuss further with you. Thanks!!

    • Adam Rosenblum

    I was ticketed for going 82 in a 65mph zone in Broome County. I plead not guilty and the DA has scheduled a conference with the in Deposit, NY.
    This would be my first offence and I do not actually own a car (I was renting one at the time) so I am not sure how I am going to get there in the first place. The DA appears to be unwilling to communicate via phone.

I received it back from the DA offering me a guilty plea on “failure to obey a traffic control device” VTL 1110a. What will my fine be roughly and should I just agree to pay it or go to trial? I live in MA about 5.5hrs away with only one prior infraction on my entire driving history from back in 2007. Please advise!

  • Kris
    March 19, 2016

    Hello, I just received a ticket for driving 87 in a 65 on i-99 North in Steuben County (the ticket says town of Lindley). The ticket is issued from the New York State Police. The officer said that he first clocked my speed with radar at 91, and then again at 87. He wrote 87mph on the ticket. This is my first ticket and I’ve never been pulled over before. I’m learning that this ticket can cost between $150 and $300 dollars, along with an additional fee of 90, and $300 to be paid to the DMV over three years. I was not paying attention to my speed, but I’d like to know if I have any chance of reducing the fine, or more importantly the points (since the ticket is worth 6). The town I’d have to appear to is 2 hours away from where I live, so would it be worth fighting this ticket?

    I received a speeding ticket yesterday for driving 62mph in a 30 in Garden City. 1180-d speed zone. I also am a Florida resident. I noticed the officer did not sign the ticket, which I thought was rather odd. I have 0 points on my license, and normally I would fight the ticket myself and speak to the prosecutor, but I have never had a violation like this and am contemplating on hiring an attorney. Do I have a legitimate argument with the officer not signing the ticket, and since my driving record is clean? Or since I am already looking at $800 in fees, and not including if I can remove the points, to just hire a professional?

      While this is a ticket you can fight, speeding up to avoid a potential collision is not an argument that would likely work.

    I was driving on I80 in Orangeburg Ny, A car was tailgating me so iI sped up to 87 The police officer said, when he pulled me over he asked me did I know that the speed limit was 65 And I replied I didn’t, the cop then asked me if my license was good and I said yeah, the cop also told me that when he flashed his lights at me to pull over I cut the driver in the other lane off, which I don’t believe I did. The officer ended up saying my license was suspended and gave me 3 tickets one for driving with a suspended license, one for moving unsafe in lane, and one for speeding 87 in a 65. Please let me know what I should do.

    I just received my first ticket speeding ticket ever this afternoon on I-87 in Yonkers for going 79 in a 55. I was going 65(what always do on most highways) when I seen where the trooper was waiting, so there is no way i was going that fast. Also, i am not from the area, just recently moved here for graduate school. I was given two sheets of paper, none with any information about a court date or fines. The Trooper told me i needed to plead/not plead guilty and mail in the form. What would be my best option?

      I suggest you plead not guilty in order to mitigate / avoid the significant penalties associated with this 6 point ticket.

    My son has two previous tickets (one of which happened during work hours) with points because he did not fight it and just pleaded guilty & paid the fines. He was driving on the Grand Central on a Friday morning about 8 am. Don’t know if that is still considered rush hour. There were other cars in front of him (it was by Jewel Ave) which is a 50 mph zone, officer said he was driving 72. The officer asked him if he other tickets, son said yes. Then when the officer came back, he handed him the ticket and said have a nice day. What are the options?? What can happen? Does he pay the ticket & if he does will his license by suspended or revoked?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      March 2, 2016

      Gloria – license suspension occurs at 11 points in NY. He is currently facing a 6 point ticket, that has a fine of $393, and additional assessment fees. In order to mitigate these consequences, and to attempt to protect his license, I strongly suggest you fight this ticket.

    Hi I am a CT resident with a CT drivers license and drive to NYC daily. This morning Feb 19 2016 I received a speeding ticket for going 85 in a 50 on on the West Side Hwy between 95th and 125th st going South at about 5am. The interesting thing is just before I turned from my lane a taxi passed by going about 95 mph as I pushed to jump into his lane the cop came up behind me. I actually thought I was doing about 75 but he was tailing me and said I was doing 85. What was strange is that he asked me if I was trying to keep up with the taxi which seemed odd.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      March 1, 2016

      Robert – you are facing an 8 point ticket that carries fines of $688, assessment fees of $450, and a substantial impact on your insurance. I therefore recommend fighting this ticket to avoid / mitigate these consequences.

He said he cut me a break by not posting my speed or the speed limit on the ticket. What should I be in for.

  • Mercedes
    January 30, 2016

    I got a ticket for going 49 in a 30. it was a hill going from one town into another. the speed limit changed mid hill and there was a warning sign saying so. at the top of the hill the speed limit is 45. mid hill it warnes you it will be 30. at the bottom of the hill it actually changes to 30. I believe I was between the two signs when the cop pulled out so I technically was only going 49 in a 45. I slowed down for the second sign without noticing the cop. I pulled over after the light at the base of the hill only because I didn’t know the cop was there. is this a valid argument?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      February 4, 2016

      Hi Mercedes, unfortunately this is not a valid argument to have your ticket dismissed. This is also not enough information to provide full assistance. You are currently facing a 4 point ticket and depending on location you could be facing as much as a $393 court fine. Your insurance rates will increase substantially as well. However, our suggestion for you is pleading not guilty. If you would like more information please contact our office for a free consultation at 888-883-5529.

  • Rick
    January 30, 2016

    Hi Adam,

    My wife got a 70 mph in a 50 mph ticket on the Clearview Expressway near Bayside (35th Ave). I’ve done enough research now about the TVB that tells me that the chances of success in fighting a case like this seem pretty slim – essentially hoping the officer doesn’t show. A 5mph reduction isn’t going to make a difference in this case.

    I have to tell you that other so-called traffic lawyer firms aren’t chomping at the bit to take a case like this, seemingly knowing it’s quite the long shot, at best.

    I know no one can guarantee an outcome, but I’m just looking for honesty. Your firm has had to have represented speeders on the Clearview or in the TVB that handles this in my violation area. It doesn’t make sense to throw more $$ away on a lost legal cause. I know this is a 4 point violation. I know it can impact insurance rates. But what I don’t need is to spend more money only to hear “Well, we gave it the old college try but the officer showed up and had his ducks in a row”. You must understand my point of view here.

    Right now the plan is to plead guilty and my wife will just do the defensive driver class to reduce the state points (not insurance points; I know). That’s the plan, UNLESS someone in a position such as yours can give me any kind of truly reasonable hope that hiring an attorney would be a good idea. It would be very dismaying to lose and then be out even more $$ for nothing. Anyway, tks for any info.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      February 7, 2016

      Rick – While the traffic violations bureau is a challenging court, it is not impossible to obtain dismissals. I would be happy to discuss our strategy behind these cases, that does not involve a non-appearance by the officer.

  • Carlotta
    January 28, 2016

    I was given a speeding ticket this morning, on the Grand Concourse, for going 25 in a 40 zone. It was classified as an 1180D violation. I was on my way to jury duty, with another juror present in the car with me. I don’t believe I was going any faster than 35 MPH–there were cars around going faster than I was. The ticket lists no radar operator, and the car came out of nowhere, a fact that my passenger noted as soon as the police car turned the lights on. I regularly check my mirrors, and the car was not behind me. The road in the area is horrible damaged, and driving there requires me to frequently slow to a crawl in order to make it around a pothole, and then speed up again. An officer of the court told me that it was just because precincts had ticket quotas to fill before the end of the month. I’ve never received so much as a verbal warning or a parking ticket. I’m also on prescription medications that act as both stimulants and depressants–there is no warning not to drive on the bottles, or in any informational documents. I believe that the medications did affect me in that I was feeling extremely jumpy and easily startled.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      February 4, 2016

      Hello Carlotta, unfortunately the information you have provided is not enough to have the courts dismiss the ticket. You are currently looking at a 4 point ticket with a maximum court fine of $203. Your insurance rates will also face an increase by 20 to 25 percent for 3 to 5 years. Our suggestion to you is pleading non guilty. If you would like more information about disputing this ticket that was received please contact our office for a free consultation at 888-883-5529.

    My 26 year old son (Maryland Drivers License)was involved in a one vehicle car accident. He lost control when his vehicle hit the snow and went down an embankment. ST Rt 31 at Alderman Road. 2 tickets issued. 1128A (Moved from lane unsafely) and 1180A (Speed not reasonable or prudent). Accident information form stated him as owner but I am owner and happened at 6:05 pm but tickets were written at 7:05 pm. No witness.
    damage to vehicle was broken passenger window by officer due to doors not opening. Do I have to file accident form and what fines and points for the tickets. Maryland lists the fines and points on tickets. I would like to avoid any points on his Maryland record.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      February 4, 2016

      Hi Sandra, with the 1180A your son is facing a 3 point ticket a maximum fine of $243 and even 15 days of incarceration. The ticket for 1128A is another 3 point ticket with another maximum court fine of up to $243. A driver’s assessment fee of $300 will have to be paid as well. In terms of your window we do suggest filing an accident form. Your son should obtain counsel and plead not guilty for any of these offenses.

    I got a ticket doing 52 in a 35 back in early November, with a clean record. When I pled not guilty, I requested a deposition since one wasn’t given to me on the spot. I haven’t received a court date, but when I called in, they said it should be in the next month or two. Since I never received a deposition when requested, is that grounds for the case being dismissed? On the ticket too, where it had to be be marked if a deposition was given, no choice was selected either.

    I just moved to Buffalo, NY, I got caught by a police on 12/30 (my first time in life, driving 25 years in USA), I saw him following me from my rear mirror, so I turned right on non-busy street, then he said I drive 50 on 30 limit street. I said I did not see the speed limit sign, plus, I got lost, so I am looking for right street, it seems no way to speed up…

    police did not said anything more, just asked me stay in car, he is going to issue speed ticket for me.

    when he come back just ask me to show in person in court for sure. then I could removed my point.

    after I back to office to see the ticket in detail :
    1). arrest type: 2 radar: which police did not show me anything like record show me my speed.
    2). police just gave me one single ticket, there is not “supporting deposition”

    my court date is 1/26, I will definitely show up, but don’t know if I could fight for : I did not speed like what police accused me?!

    any suggestion?!

    I received a speeding ticket when I took exit 3 off FDR (304 South Street, New York, NY). Cops were pulling bunch of drivers as people were taking exit. Speed limit on South Steet was 25…and they gave me ticket for doing 40. I think that a $115 + surcharge??

    I’m an out of state drive (MA). I feel like it was a BS ticket since everyone is going over the speed limit when taking an exit.

    Do you think I have a chance if I fight this ticket? I have a clean record and have only received one speeding ticket in my lifetime, which was waived after I disputed it.

    Hello, in November 2014 I was clocked going 40 in 25 zone on the eastern parkway. This was when the new law was passed, and I was unaware of it. Also, the officer incorrectly wrote down my driver’s license number. Is this grounds for dismissal? I have pleaded not guilty and am awaiting my trial date.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      January 11, 2016

      An incorrect drivers license number will not warrant a dismissal of your ticket.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      January 11, 2016

      Hello, sometimes date may be sufficient enough to have the ticket dismissed. However, since he signed the correct date this ticket may not be dismissed. 40mph over the limit if the ticket is not dismissed will result in a 8 point ticket. You would also face a maximum court fine of $693 and a driver’s assessment fine of $450. We do suggest you plead not guilty.

      Rick – travelling in excess of 15 mph over the limit is a 4 point ticket with a maximum court fine of $393. Your insurance will also rise for the next 3 to 5 years. The insurance increase will be about 20 to 25 percent of what you are paying now. We suggest you plead not guilty.

    Hi Mr Adam Rosenbulm. I have got two ticket at one time on 11/24/2015 9:14pm at I-90 highway. One is a speeding ticket “103MPH at 65MPH zone” charge based on Officer’s “Direct observation”
    Speed verified by : Radar
    Additional information: 91 MPH in the passing lane with Patrol stationary facing east -103 MPH in the passing westbound with patrol westbound same lane radar and paced with no other vehicle in the driving lane or in front of him.
    In which you substantially stated as follows:
    Do you know why I stopped you? – No? Do you know how fast you were going?- I was just following that car in front of me.

    and another ticket is “Disobeyed traffic control Device”

    It is really dark at that time. and the traffic is very good, I could not control my speed very well. and Also could not see the Traffic control Device.(I have been driven for 200 miles already, kind tired) when the policy officer following me . I thought maybe I’m too slow, So I push gas try to make a safe distance between me and him. (I don’t know that is policy officer at that time) And he still keep following me very closely for 5 mintues . And then I changed the lane to the right. He also changed the lane to the right. After few minutes He flush the red light and I pulled over.
    He also Provide a supporting deposition for the speeding ticket to me. Could I still plead not guilty?
    I really feel he was setting up a trap for me to speeding. because He was following me for a long time and did not flush the red light. And i have good driving record.

    Could you help me to fight this two ticket?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      December 4, 2015

    Hi, i’m Canadian and the police officer caught me going 68mph in a construction zone of 45mph speed limit. In fact i’m pretty sure I was going at 60mph because at the beginning of the construction passage the limit was 55 and I reduced my speed to 60mph then at a smaller passage of the construction passage the speed diminuated to 45 mph and I didn’t reduced more so I stayed at 60 mph. Tell me please what can I fight for if I plead not guilty. I had the ticket in the 87-N in the Peru district.

    October 7, 2015

    Hello,
    About 3 weeks ago I was pulled over for going 81 in a 65 in wawayanda NY. The officer reduced the ticket to 76 in a 65. He then told me “if for some reason you plead not guilty then you will probably will get it reduced to a parking violation”. So I mailed the ticket in the same day not guilty. On the ticket it said to mail it in before Oct 9. Today Oct 7 and still have received nothing from the court. My question is when will I hear back from the court and if I end up getting a parking violation how much will it be. Also I’m 18 with a NJ license with no past tickets.
    -thanks

  • Pete

    I am a resident of Quebec and received a ticket for going 45mph in a 30mph zone in Rouses Point, NY. In Canada the speed limit in neighboring rural areas is 70kmph (about 43mph) and I assumed the same was true south of the border. In Champlain, NY, where we were driving from, the limit was 55mph and so we thought we were driving on the slow side given that it was on a state route. I didn’t see any signs to the contrary and then I was pulled over. What is the fine for such a violation in Clinton County? This is a first time offence and I have a clean record.

    I’ve never gotten a speeding ticket in the US before! I really don’t believe I was going that fast either. In fact, I had people honking, flashing their beams at me, etc to move over!
    Then here I was, just driving along in traffic and, boom! State trooper pulls me over, saying I was going 84 in a 65 on the Thruway! I never go that fast!!
    Now what do I do? I can’t get time off to travel all the way from Canada to the US to attend court or anything to get this reduced / forgiven. And… I drive a school bus for a living! How will this affect my career?!? 🙁

        Hello Adam, how much is your fee to fight for this ticket and can it be converted to a non moving violation. Actually my wife had a upset stomach and she had to use the restroom, so I was just trying to reach the gas station on exit 56, my gps showed the nearest gas station there. I was moving with the traffic at speed around 75 miles but just to bypass a vehicle I might have gone little faster and definitely it was not 84 but may be around 79 / 80. I explained about my wife situation to the officer also.

    Hi, I (a Canadian) received a speeding ticket for going 71 in a 55 mph zone, in Niagara falls, NY. What do I do to try & avoid getting any demerit points on my license? Please advise. Do I plea not gulity/just appear to the court at the date & time noted on the ticket? Do I still have to mail the ticket in & is it 48hrs/30 days to do so?

    • Adam Rosenblum

      Wendy – in order to avoid the demerit points, you must plead not-guilty and fight this ticket.

    Hi Adam, I got a ticket going 83 mph on a 65-mile zone in Blooming Grove, NY. I wonder how it’s possible to fight this charge given that the police caught me on radar? BTW, I’ve kept a clean record with no moving violations, and I was driving with cruise control going 75 mph. Now it seems to be my words vs. the cop’s words…

    • Adam Rosenblum

    I did see the max fine is $600…am I likely to get that??

      While text messages are one form of evidence that may be used to show the need for a restraining order, there are several requirements that need to be met before a judge will grant a request for a restraining order. For example, you would need to prove that there has been a prior history of abuse and the restraining order is necessary to protect you from an immediate danger or prevent further abuse. It is highly recommended to keep a journal or record, logging each time that you are verbally or physically attacked. Call us for a consultation to discuss this further. Our experienced attorneys can help you successfully obtain a restraining order.

    We were pulled over in Peru, NY clocked at doing 68 in a 45 mile work zone (not that it matters but no one was there working). I have a clean license and explained I wasn’t used to looking between the km and mile differences as our car is from Canada with the km reading big above the miles in small numbers. My previous car from a few months ago was all digital I was getting confused from looking at all the numbers. He came back with a ticket 55 in 45 mph work zone. He told us that it would be a $90 – $150 dollar fine if we chose to plea guilty or if we thought he was unfair plea not guilty and take it to court. And he told us if he had written it for the original speed it would have been $600 to $800 fee.

    Is the fee he quoted for the 55 accurate or is there more to what he just said?
    Would it be cheaper to hire an attorney or pay the ticket?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 25, 2015

      The maximum fine for 55/45 is $243; the max fine for 68/45 is $393 + $300 assessment charge. Additionally, insurance rates will be impacted by this speeding ticket. While the officer did assist you by reducing the speed, you are still facing a speeding ticket which will impact your ON license.

    Hi, I received a ticket on May 5th of 2014, but the ticket was not filed until recently, as I tried to check it on the website every week for nearly a year. I just received a notice warning that my license will be suspended if I don’t pay or plead not guilty. On the ticket, the officer did not write any speeds. However, I am being charged with going between 21 and 30 miles over the limit. Does the fact that it took the officer more than a year to file the ticket, or that he didn’t note any speed on the ticket make any difference? Thanks!

    I got a 1180D for speeding on I-90WB. This is the FIRST TIME I am getting any kind of ticket. I was speeding at 89 mph when the posted limit was 65 mph. There was a child in the car seat
    What would be the fine ?
    I learned that there could be 15 days imprisonment along with fine…. How often Judge order that ?

    thanks in anticipation

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 19, 2015

      Since you were cited as going 24 mph over the speed limit, you are facing a 6 point ticket which has a maximum fine of $393, plus a driver responsibility assessment fee of $300. This will also likely impact your insurance rates. You should consider fighting this ticket to avoid or mitigate the consequences. A prison sentence for a speeding ticket is highly unlikely, but you do have to take care of the ticket so you do not lose your driving privileges.

    Hi. I live in Jersey City and I got a ticket for going 53 in a 35 in NYS.
    I have a clean NYS driving record – this was my first offense.
    I just got off the highway, drove into a small town and stopped for the first traffic light. The police was waiting there.
    The speed limit at that town changes every 2 or 3 minutes drive. It’s hard to pay attention to the limits that frequently.
    Should I plead guilty? How much and how many points will it cost me?

  • Javier
    July 24, 2015

    Hi. I live out of state—and was ticketed for going 40 in a 30. I think the only reason I got this ticket is *because* I live out of state. The officer was parked next to the 30 mph sign, and followed me for a couple of minutes before pulling me over.

    I’m pretty sure that, when he clocked me, the speed limit was 45 mph (but, since I’m not from around there, I can’t verify this).

    Is there any reasonable means of contesting this without having to go all the way back to NY. I hardly have enough money to get back there, but I don’t think this ticket’s fair.

    • Adam Rosenblum

    Hi, I was pulled over on 1/31/15 supposedly doing 81 in a 55. On the ticket it didn’t have a signature under radar office. I sent my not guilty plea in and was sent back a first class mail doc that said it was received 2/9/15. Upon calling the town court a lady informed me that I would receive a court date within 6 months. It has almost been 6 months and I haven’t received any notice. Isn’t there a grace period before they can throw out this ticket. Wouldn’t anything after 6 months go against my 6th amendment. Thanks

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 7, 2015

      Zach – in order for a speedy try argument to have any validity, the delay would typically need to be for at least 2 years.

    Hello I was pulled over for speeding (82 in a 65 zone in NYS on hwy 390) but the officer wrote a ticket for “back seat pass age 8-15 no/impropr seat belt” because my 3 yr old put the top of the seat belt behind her back. He said if I try to fight the seat belt ticket he will come to court to fight it and write me for speeding as well. Is this possible? How many points is the seat belt violation?

    I was pulled over going about 66 in a 55 mph zone in oswego county, ny. My cruise control was set on 65, but needle wavering just over. When questioned by the officer, I said my cruise control was set at 65 and I could have been traveling at 67-68mph, maximum. Ticked states that I declared my speed definitely as 67-68mph, and that laser verified speed as 70mph. Should I contest accuracy of equipment and mention these things to try to have my fine lowered? It is my first moving violation.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      August 5, 2015

      Benjamin – The problem here is that you are still admitting to speeding. I suggest you consider other defenses to this ticket.

    Yesterday I recieve a speeding ticket going 74 in a 50 mph zone, on the SI Expwy a highway in SI, NY. My speedometer said I did not go over 52 MPH, and I had 2 other witnesses in the car who also saw this. my driving record is clean! Cop pulled me over after i came around a turn, he was far from his car with no radar in sight. it looked impossible for him to have clocked me in at ANY point. I know i wasnt speeding because the whole time i was driving, cars were passing me.. and i would never dare speed with my mother in law nor my wife in the car. what do i do when i know i am not guilty??

    My 17 year old son rec’d 2 tickets from a car accident on 7/3/2015 in upstate NY. He was ticketed for speed, (1180a) & failed to stop at a posted stop sign (1172a). I arrived to the scene of my very distraught son, as he clearing ran a stop sign, striking a vehicle in the left rear. Had my son a.) been experienced driver he would have known not to pull the e-brake which caused the vehicle to pull to the left. had he swerved to the right he most likely may have been able to avoid the accident. However, he is inexperienced, he was on a road he was not too familiar with & thought the s/s was at the next block. the p/o grilled him, he pretty much agreed to whatever the p/o said. when asked how fast he was going he said he didn’t know but was in 3rd gear and positive not over 40. the city speed is 30. the ticket does not have a speed on it, as truly speed was not known. I feel that speed was not justified. Distracted.. possibly, as he had friends in car w/ him. inexperience absolutely. my insurance has already accepted responsibility for the dmg to other people vehicle. I am already paying throw the roof for insurance due to his inexperience the accident alone is going to cause it to sky rocket, not to mention these tickets/points. Do you have any suggestions/recommendations? I was going to apply for reduction in charges w/ the DA.

    I received a traffic ticket 1180-D in New York while on a trip but I live in California. The officer said he clocked me 3 miles back going 80 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. But I know that I was driving 65. I wrote a letter explaining this and they sent a plea agreement of a reduced charge of 1201-A. I did not want to accept this because I was not guilty of either charge. They wrote back that if I don’t accept it then all they can do is set a court trial. But I can’t fly back to New York for court.

    Should I accept the charge of 1201-A? Is that going to be my only option?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      July 29, 2015

      An offer of 1201-A is a parking ticket. Your other option would be to go to trial – which would put you at risk of being found guilty for the initial speeding offense. I suggest you take this offer.

    What is my fine and how can i fight this. i cant affort points on my license. i did go through the ticket to check for any mistake, the only one i see is on the supporting document instead of 5:25 am it says 5:25pm.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      July 29, 2015

      Generally speaking, minor clerical errors will not warrant the dismissal of a ticket. As the consequences of this ticket are severe, I strongly suggest you fight this ticket. Hiring a licensed attorney will allow you, in most cases, to forgo personally appearing in court.

    Hello – I was issued a speeding ticket yesterday in NYC. In an effort to get past a SUV to position to make a left hand turn, I “gunned” it from a red light to pass the SUV. I went to 40mph quickly, passed and slowed down. The officer used radar (although my radar detector did not go off at all) and clocked me however briefly at 41mph and ticketed me for going 40mph in a 25mph zone going north on Park Ave between 68th and 70th. Is it worth contesting? This is my first speeding ticket in six plus years. Thank you!

    June 27, 2015

    Hello… Early this month I received my first speeding ticket of 71MPH in 45MPH speed zone. It happened before crossing the VERRAZANO Bridge. I just came out of work on my way home. I don’t beleived that I was speeding, I was just going the flow of traffic. There were two other car before me , but then the officer pulled me over instead saying that I was going 71mph on a 45mph speed zone from a speed radar detector, not showing me any proof that I was the one who was speeding.
    I went ot DMV to pay this ticket, and the clerk said thats they take out 6 points in my licence a $200., and $300. assesment fee.

    I have an appointment to see the judge on July 10 Friday. Do you think I have a case, and need to have a lawyer to fight this?, or can I do it by myself?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      June 28, 2015

      Maryann – unfortunately, ‘going with the flow of traffic’ will not help your case – this only goes to show that other people were speeding at that time.

Speeding (105 in a 50), Stopping on parkway, Unsafe Start. i got all of these on the Belt Parkway by NYPD Highway Patrol2, but i was picked up with a large group of cars and they issued all of us the same tickets except for one because he called his father to the scene who is a retired NYPD officer who got him out of the tickets. How can you help me make my situation better.

    I received a speeding ticket in Queens (driving on 495 westbound) for doing 72 in 50 mph zone.
    Ticket is from May 12 and I did not answer it yet.
    Can I still plea not guilty?
    If yes, can you represent me in court or do I need to be there as well?
    Thanks, Aviv

    My husband received a speeding ticket (upstate NY) and he filled out the form as “non guilty” and sent it back. He doesn’t have any previous records but we expect this to be a 6 point ticket so he decided to fight for it. What happens next? Should we wait for the response of the county court before contacting a lawyer? If so how much the lawyer will cost in total? The lawyer will need to represent my husband in the court since we live far from that county court. Thank you for your help.

      Becky – what court is handling your case? It is always a good idea to hire an attorney at the beginning of the legal process, to allow ample time to research your case in depth.

    I had a ticket, the officer said i was improper turn. (there is a three-lines traffic street, and i was in the middle. the street sign on the floor shows left line allow to straight and left, the right line shows right turn only, but the middle line have nothing to show. that was why i made a turn from there). Do i have chance to fight for this ticket? If i do, please email me. i want to hire an attorney to fight for this ticke because i already have point, i don’t want to get another one and raise my insurance fee. Thank you!

    I have a speeding ticket in bath town court ny for 80 miles in 65 zone. What will be my fine and points. If I fight this, can I get it to a non speeding violation with no points or dismissed all together. I had a clean record for 15 yrs and now suddenly I have 2 tickets one this and one for cell phone in NY city which I’m fighting too so probably does not show on records yet.

    • Adam Rosenblum

      The fines for this 4 point ticket are $393, along with an impact on your insurance. What offer you get, if any, is up to the discretion of the prosecutor.

    I received a ticket in Rochester City for failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer said he saw me roll past the sign. I said I stopped and then rolled forward to see if anything was coming from a blind driveway at the intersection. The officer was sitting in a driveway ahead of me but the road curved in such a way that he could not have seen me from the driveway. But he still claimed he saw me rolling. Is this worth fighting ? A diagram of the intersection would make it clear he could not have seen my car r the stop sign.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      June 4, 2015

      These tickets are worth fighting, as the penalties include points, fines, and an impact on your insurance.

    I relocated from Red Hook, NY to Burlington, VT last fall. In October I obtained a VT driver’s license and surrendered my NY license. On May 12, 2015, I got a speeding ticket 51/30 in Crown Point, NY. The trooper who pulled me over advised me to plead guilty and pay the fine, which I did. The Crown Point Town Court charged me $100 for the fine and $93 for the surcharge, both of which I paid. I have now received a Driver Responsibility Statement which states I must pay $300 as I now have 6 points on my license! I would have preferred to appear at the Crown Point Town Court and had the penalty reduced, but I took the trooper’s advice. The Assessment Statement was forwarded from my Red Hook Address. Is there any way to get the additional fee and points reduced? Thank you.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      June 4, 2015

      While you may withdraw your guilty plea and fight the underlying ticket, you can not reduce the amount of the Driver Responsibility Assessment.

    I am an out of state driver who received a traffic ticket for disobeying a “No Left Turn” sign. I entered Flatbush Avenue from a side street that immediatly leads on to Flatlands Avenue and didnot notice the sign high on the pole. I have a clean driving record. What is the penalty for such? And, what are the options available to avoid points being placed on my license? Is there also a grace period beyond the 15days for payment. The ticket is also due today and is unable to find an appropriate link online to proceed. Thanks in Advance

When the cop pulled us over, she said she will give us a discount and give us a ticket for Disobeyed traffic control device. How much will the ticked be and how many points. We can not go to court since is almost 5 hour driving from where we live. Please respond. Thank you.

    Hello, I received tickets in Champlain, NY for (1) driving 66 MPH in a 45-MPH posted work zone (where no work was being performed and (2) failing to notify DMV of change in address. Do you know what the fines will be, and do you suggest pleading not guilty? Thanks

    • Adam Rosenblum
      June 3, 2015

      You are facing the following penalties: a) 6 points, b) fines in the amount of 600, c) court fees of $93, d) a driver responsibility assessment of $300, and e) an increase in your insurance rates by an average of 20-25% . I suggest you fight this ticket to avoid / mitigate these harsh consequences.

      Edgar – you are facing a 4 point ticket that carries fines ranging from $203 – $393. You should not plead guilty as this will also impact your insurance rates.

    Received a ticket in manlius, New York, clocked at 62 in a 30mph, but wasn’t speeding through town, only sped up when two lanes merged into one, and no sign saying to not pass on the right side. What am I looking at penalty wise and what is a reasonable outcome with my lawyer taking over?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      May 17, 2015

      Taylor – in order to provide you with a likely outcome, we require additional information from you. You may contact us for a free consultation at 888-883-5529. Generally speak, however, you are facing an 8 point ticket, which will carries fines of $600, court fees of $93, and a driver responsibility assessment charge of $450 over 3 years. The fact that there was no sign stating that you should not pass on the right has no bearing on this case – as the issue here is whether you were speeding.

  • Gary
    May 12, 2015

    Received several tickets while on my Harley last weekend; an unmarked Sheriff’s car clocked me speeding and claimed I was trying to run from them. All I saw was a white SUV with its brights on several hundred yards away as it is difficult to see on vibrating mirrors. I continued home unaware and went through my village slow enough to wave at friends. A NYS trooper heard the Sheriff’s dept and pulled me over. My tickets include speeding, failure to obey traffic control device and driving out of class. However, all tickets claim I was driving a Honda. Can I question the validity and also can unmarked vehicles pull over motorists? I thought that was illegal in NY.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      May 13, 2015

      Gary – While you can question the validity of the stop, I do not believe the officer’s claim that you were driving a Honda instead of a Harley will be sufficient to warrant a dismissal of this action. Generally speaking, officers may not conduct routing traffic stops in unmarked vehicles. However, there are numerous exceptions to this rule, and it will therefore be difficult to obtain a dismissal for this reason. To discuss your other options, you may contact us for a free consultation.

    I received a speeding ticket 78 in a 50. I showed up to court today and the officer wasn’t there. No explanation; just show up in october for next date. Is this normal? Is there anything that I can do to get this dismissed? Seems pretty unfair, that if I miss the date, my license gets suspended, but if the officer misses it, no problem?
    Thanks, in advance, for your help,
    Alex

    • Adam Rosenblum
      May 13, 2015

      There was an argument to be made at the court hearing date for a dismissal. Although at the present time, your best option would be to assure you had the best defense prepared for trial.

    I got a ticket when driving in NY for 84 in a 65. (I am from Vermont). I, along with two other cars, were attempting to pass a logging truck that was scattering bits of debris on those objects behind him. It was a scary situation and I gunned it to get past him as bark was hitting my windshield. Again, I was third in a line of three cars which were doing the same. I’m,have a clean driving record otherwise. Is this worth fighting in court?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      May 10, 2015

      Yes, this is worth fighting. Aside from the financial penalty, this will impact your insurance rates as the violations transfer among the states.

    I received a ticket in on the northway by state police doing 80 in a 55 zone. I plead not guilty last year in june of 2014 when ticketed never received a reply until may 4th of 2015 is there some kind of statue of limitations that they have to answer to?

    • Adam Rosenblum

      The Statute of Limitations does not apply to this situation.

  • Fher
    May 6, 2015

    In Nov/2014 I got an speeding ticket in the FDR (30 miles up the limit is what the ticket says). Then in Feb/2015 I got stopped again for speeding in the Triboro bridge and the officer said that I was also 30mph up the limit. My driver license is from PA. I pleaded guilty on the second ticket online and I paid $203. I also received the other fine where the NYS DMV wants $300 more. I wanted to pay for the first ticket online as well, but now they want me to appear at a TVB office. I was planning to plead “guilty”, pay the fine and get the matter over with. Do you recommend I do so, or would it be worthy to plead “not guilty” and challenge the ticket. What do you recommend?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      May 10, 2015

      Fher – to confirm – you have 6 points on your license and are considering pleading guilty to another 6 point ticket? If this is correct, then please be advised that your license will be suspended in NY, which may impact your right to drive in PA. I strongly suggest you fight this ticket to protect your license, and mitigate the financial impact of this offense.

  • Tracy

    I received a speeding ticket in saratoga springs, NY for driving 45 in a 30 MPH zone. The officer said that if he were not doing the speed enforcement, he would have given me a warning. Could i use this as an arguement in the court? Also I had a ticket using cell phone 4 years ago, I am wondering if its point would still be in effect.

    Thanks

    • Adam Rosenblum
      May 10, 2015

      This argument would unfortunately not work. The issue is whether you were speeding – which the officer has stated you were. The points from the cell phone violation will not impact your current license status.

    I am an out-of-state driver who received a speeding ticket (1180d) back in August 2012 while driving on the Saw Mill Parkway. I was cited through observation only (no radar, laser, etc.) as going 80/50. I do not believe this to be correct and I entered a plea of not guilty. Various elements of the ticket are incorrect in regard to the car and my personal information. Most is minor, but my birthdate is radically wrong (i.e. wrong month, wrong day, and wrong year and these are each off by several digits). The location of where he pulled me over is also incorrect by about 3 exits. Further, even though I received a letter acknowledging my plea in November 2012, I received no word from the court until last month (April 2015) informing me of a pre-trial/conference date. Do I have grounds for negotiating a plea deal or even a dismissal (since it has taken well over 2 years to be granted an appearance date from the court)?

      Scott – you are facing a 6 point ticket, which carries fines of $393 and a DRA assessment of $300. If you plead not guilty – you will generally need to go to court to handle the trial. As an attorney, I am able to appear on your behalf.

    Hello, today I was driving down Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst, NY and was stopped at a red light. The vehicle in front of me was too tall to see over so when he let off his brakes I also did assuming the light was green but it was not. I struck the rear of his vehicle and a policeman was summoned. I received a ticket for an 1180A “Speed not reasonable and prudent”. However my license was also expired for less than 60 Days so i got 2 tickets, the 1180A and an 5091 “unlicensed operator” ticket. What should I do and what kind of fees would I be looking at?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      April 3, 2015

      Evan – the fines for an 1180(a) are $150 maximum fine, and $93 court fee. The unlicensed operator ticket will cost $300, along with a $93 court fee. In addition to these penalties, you will likely face an insurance increase. I therefore suggest you fight these tickets and avoid the associated consequences.

      Hi I have 2 questions, my first is I got a speeding ticket saying I went 70mph/50mph on the Bronx river pkwy on the third lane. I know for a fact I wasn’t going 70 because I was doing 45mph which is the actual speed limit on the Bronx river not 50mph. No way a radar can catch you doing an exact 70 . My second question is if an officer writes the wrong color of vehicle on the ticket and doesn’t complete your ticket with the right address can it be dismissed?

      • Adam Rosenblum
        April 12, 2015

        An error such as you are describing will not invalidate a ticket. While we do not know what the officer clocked you at, keep in mind that 21 mph over is a 6 point ticket, and 20 mph is a 4 point ticket. You may contact us if you are interested in fighting this ticket.

    I just got pulled over for going 60 in a 35 zone in Cheektowaga, NY. Should I plead guilty or not guilty. It is my first ticket. The officer said it was a 6 point violation. What should I do?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      March 27, 2015

      I suggest you plead not-guilty, as this 6 point ticket carries substantial fines ($693); a driver responsibility assessment ($300 over 3 years) and a significant insurance impact.

    I was in Eden, NY yesterday at night, an unfamiliar area to me, and turned onto a rd that didn’t immediately have a speed sign. Half way down it did, 30 mph, but the man in front of me was going about 45 so I did as well. I saw the police officer and slowed, he pulled around behind me, by then I had slowed all the way to 30, and then he flashed his lights and pulled me over. Should I fight even though I know I was doing something wrong? If so, how?

    • Adam Rosenblum
      March 27, 2015

      This is a 4 point ticket which will result in fines of $393, and a significant insurance increase. You should fight your ticket to mitigate / avoid these consequences.

I have plead not guilty and have a court date scheduled for March 24 in Hauppauge, NY at the TVB. I am currently a NYPD candidate and have a prior speeding ticket in 2009.

    I was ticketed for going 44 in a 30 mph. This happened in Brooklyn 65th street which is one of the major corridors.

    On the ticket, the officer left the “Radar operator name” field blank. Would this be a valid defense?

    Given that I have a clean driving record, is bargaining at the court hearing possible for a lesser charge, such as disobeying a posted speed sign?

    Thanks.

    • Adam Rosenblum
      February 26, 2015

      No, this would not be sufficient to warrant dismissal of your ticket. There is no plea bargaining in this court system – and your case would be decided at a trial.

      Dennis – you are facing a 4 point ticket, with fines ranging from $203 – $393, depending on the court. This is not a school zone or work zone ticket, although the language of the offense does imply as such. This ticket can be fought, although predicting an outcome would require more information.

    • Adam Rosenblum

      John – you are facing a 6 point ticket, which will have a total fine due of $203.00. Additionally, you will have to pay $300.00 as a Driver Responsibility Assessment. While you are licensed in CT, the violation will transfer and will negatively impact your insurance rates. You should consider fighting these charges to help mitigate or avoid these consequences.

      I received a ticket in NYC for driving at 47 mph in a 25 mile zone. I was not aware of the 25 mph law; I know the aforementioned is not a valid argument. I wasn’t driving in a reckless manner, there was no much traffic.
      I have a clean driving record. Is it worth pleading “not guilty” or should I just plead guilty?
      The description/narrative states: “Unposted NYC Speed.”

      Hi Adam,
      I received a speeding ticket in NYC for driving at 47 mph in a 25 mph zone. The ticket notes “unposted” NYC speed limit. Honestly, I didn’t realize I was going way above the speed limit nor did I realized that the speed limit in Manhattan changed since November 2014. I pleaded “not guilty” but now I don'[t know if I just should pay the ticket…what would be my defense?? Please advise.

      • Adam Rosenblum
