Court tip: if you are a litigant in court, it is important to remember that the court is considered a place of respect. As such, all attendees are asked to dress appropriately; turn off all electronic devices, and to leave all food and drinks outside of the court.
Sign-in: even though you may have met with the officer in court and discussed your matter, it is important to check-in with the court clerk in the front of the courtroom. Failure to advise the clerk that you are in court may result in your case not being called.
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.
Judges: Prior to taking the bench, each judge has taken an oath of office and is sworn to uphold the laws and rules of NY and the United States.
While a plea bargain can be struck between the prosecutor and a defendant, the judge has the ultimate power to accept or reject the proposed disposition. If the court accepts the resolution, a fine will be assessed.FAQs
I received a ticket from a State Trooper and I was given a trial date to appear in court. Will I have an opportunity to meet to plea bargain this case?
It all depends. In general, according to VTL 1806, a driver is supposed to have a mandatory pre-trial conference. However, depending on the stage your case is in, you may have waived the pre-trial conference.
At a speeding ticket trial, will have an opportunity to see the radar reading?
You can make a motion to view all available discovery. If the discovery is not provided, you can make the appropriate motion to sanction the prosecution.
Can’t every speeding ticket be dismissed or resolved with zero points?
Every case is unique. Every court is unique. It is difficult to make a blanket statement with regard the ultimate resolution of a legal matter.
What happens if I fail to respond to my speeding ticket?
Failing to respond can result in your license being suspended. Driving with a suspended license can be charged as a crime. You can be arrested and subject to incarceration.
