DeWitt Town Court is located in Onondaga County. It has many highways and thoroughfares passing through its jurisdiction. Some of the major roads include New York State Routes 5, 91, 92, 173, and 298. Due to volume of cars traveling along these roads and the enhanced emphasis on public safety, it is a popular place for police officers to cite drivers for speeding and other moving violations.WHAT IS THE FINE AMOUNT FOR A SPEEDING TICKET?
The fine for a speeding conviction can vary from court to court. Usually when a driver is speeding 86 mph on a 65 mph speed zone, the fine payable to the court can be up to $393.00. For this conviction, there is also a $300.00 penalty payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Furthermore, a conviction can also result in hundreds of dollars in insurance increases.HOW MANY POINTS WILL I HAVE?
When dealing with a speeding ticket, the amount of points varies based on your speed corresponding to the speed limit. Please see the chart below.
|01 to 10 mph over the limit||3|
|11 to 20||4|
|21 to 30|
31 to 40
