Did you know a conviction to a speeding ticket at 86/55 mph zone could cost you almost $700.00 in fines payable to the court, $450.00 in penalty fees payable to DMV, as well as hundreds more in insurance increases!

In today's world of increased costs, a conviction can costs you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in insurance increases and court costs. The repercussions can follow you for years to come.

The Village of Baldwinsville was first settled in 1794, and is named after Dr. Jonas Baldwin and his wife, Eliza, who visited once and returned to stay, due to the natural beauty of the area along the Seneca River. The area is served by New York State Routes 370, 48 and 690.

Since the highways cover many open stretches of road, a driver can easily lose track of his/her speed and be faced with a speeding ticket.

Further complicating things are the frequently changing topography with the rolling hills and rapidly changing speed limits. Unless a driver keeps an uber vigilant eye on their speedometer, they could be prone to being tagged with a costly traffic summons.

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.
