Costly New York Speeding Tickets
Imagine this . . . you are driving along the New York Interstate when suddenly you see the flashing lights of a police car behind you. So many thoughts run through your head. At first, you wonder to yourself, “where was the officer positioned because I never saw him coming.” Next, you hope the officer is coming after one of the other cars next to you. Finally, you wonder in disbelief as there is no doubt that the officer is after you. “How could this happen?” After all, you were driving only a few miles per hour above the speed limit.
This scenario is played out time and time again in along the highways and local streets of New York State on a daily basis.
Now that the ticket is issued, you have to decide your next step. Your decision is easily narrowed down to two choices – plead guilty or plead not guilty.
Here is something to consider before your make your choice. Hiring our speeding ticket defense firm may be cheaper than simply pleading guilty to the ticket.
Our law firm receives a large number of retainers for motorist cited for going 76 mph in a 55 mph zone (76/55). This 21 mph speeding ticket can result in a fine payable to the court of almost $400.00. Furthermore, this will result in a 6 point conviction against your driving record. As such, the Department of Motor Vehicles will issue you a minimum $300.00 fine on top of whatever the court has already fined you. Finally, you could be looking at substantial insurance increases for the years to follow.
According to many different sources, this conviction can result in many different insurance increases. In other words, there will not be a consistent increase among every insurance company. A conviction to a speeding ticket is not the only factor taken into account. Some things that an insurance company may take into account can be the age of the driver, the type of car that is driven, and accident history.
Over the years, our law firm has consistently obtained a reduction in points and fines for our client. Securing a reduction will result in decreased fines, points, and penalties. So next time you are issued a speeding ticket, don’t plead guilty. Call our lawyers to learn how we can help you.
