Canadian Ontario Quebec Traffic and Speeding Ticket
I am an Ontario resident.  I just got a speeding
ticket in New York. How will the points affect my license?

Before you mail in your guilty plea, you should be aware that a New York ticket can put demerit points on your Canadian license.  This in turn can cause your license to be suspended and increase your insurance rates.  You should call the attorneys at Joseph P. Villanueva, Attorneys At Law at 800-893-9645 to see how they can help fight your ticket.

Where do you see the most tickets for Canadian drivers?

While Canadian drivers receive tickets throughout New York State, we have defended drivers in great quantities in Buffalo, Niagara, and Rochester.  

New York is so far from where I live, do I have to go to court?

One major benefit you receive in hiring Villanueva & Sancahala, PLLC is that in most cases you don't have to go to court.  We will contact the prosecution and appear in court if necessary.  You can stay home.

What should I do with the ticket?

The worst thing you can do is to ignore the ticket. Your failure to answer the ticket in a timely manner could result in your privilege to drive being suspended or revoked.  You could be found guilty in your absence.  In addition, this may result in you paying higher insurance premiums for several years and you being hit with a mandatory $300.00 driver’s assessment fee. In certain circumstances, this can be avoided by contesting your speeding ticket and hiring the right lawyer.  Call today for your free initial consultation at 800-893-9645.
