Fight Your Cheektowaga Speeding Ticket and Save Money

If a driver checks box A on their ticket, they will be entering a plea of guilty.  Once this is done, they will be at the mercy of the court, department of motor vehicles, and insurance company to set their fine, fees, and insurance premiums.

When a driver checks box B, they will be giving themselves an opportunity to save money, time, and points on their license.

Hiring our experienced traffic ticket defense lawyers will give a driver their best chance of reducing their exposure to expensive fines and points on their license.

Our Cheektowaga traffic lawyers have over 30 years legal experience and we have excelled at getting tickets either dismissed or reduced.

How Many Points am I Facing?

Pleading guilty to a speeding ticket will result in points against a driver’s license.  Depending upon the driver’s speed, the points can vary between three and eleven points.  If a driver accumulates eleven points in an eighteen month period, their license will be suspended.

This chart will quickly help you determine the number of points you are facing.

How Long do Points Stay on my License?

The answer to this question is often misunderstood by many drivers.  In brief, a conviction can be visible to a prosecutor for a 5-10 year period after the conviction.  However, the points will only adversely affect a person's privilege to drive for 18 months from the date the ticket was issued.

Will a Defensive Driving Course Remove the Conviction?

When a driver successfully completes a certified defensive driving course, up to four points will be removed from their license.  This will not expunge the conviction.  It merely removes the points being held against their privilege to drive.

How Much is my Ticket?

The fine associated with a traffic ticket can vary depending on the nature of the ticket.  Different convictions have different fine parameters.  Here is a chart for some of the most common charges in traffic court.
