Tip: Drivers must timely respond to a traffic summons to prevent a suspension of their privilege to drive. Once the department of motor vehicles has been notified that a license should be suspended, it can be very difficult to undo the suspension. The process of un-suspending a license can include the payment of a suspension lift fee, the payment of a bond, and an appearance in court.
Plea: The majority of cases are resolved via plea bargaining. In lieu of having a trial, it may be possible to resolve a traffic matter with a lesser included charge. Most resolution will involve a fine and a surcharge. The surcharge is additional monies payable at the end of case that are paid to New York State.
Trial: Each motorist is entitled to a trial on his or her traffic matters. In general, a traffic trial will occur on the driver’s first court appearance. The first court appearance is usually designated as a pre-trial conference.Speeding Ticket Tips and Tidbits
Tip 1: Driving with a suspended license is a crime. If a driver is pulled over, the police can impound the car and place the driver under arrest.
Tip 2: If a driver enters a plea of not guilty, the court will send them a letter advising them to come to court. At this court appearance, the driver will have an opportunity to present their the strength and weakness of their case. Typically, the first appearance is not a trial date so coming prepared to argue the full case may be moot.
Tip 3: It is always a good policy to come to court prepared. Having the court notice in court is advisable. It will help the court ascertain the most important information about your case quickly.
