Tip: One of the worst things to do is ignore your ticket. Upon receiving your ticket, it is very important you enter your plea. You have the option to plead either guilty or not guilty.
Tickets: New York State officers generally use a “Uniform Traffic Ticket” which is also known as a “UTT.” Your UTT provides you with lots of important information such as instructions on how to enter your plea, place and date of occurrence, speed, officer’s name, violation, and much more.
Points: In New York State there is no such thing as a 1-point violation. Speeding tickets range from 3-11 points depending on the speed.
Suspension: If you accumulate 11 points, your driver’s license will be suspended. Driving with a suspended license is a crime, if pulled over the officer can arrest you and impound your car.What to Expect in Court
If you have entered your not guilty plea, the court will send you a court notice that will tell you when your court appearance is. At this court appearance you will have the opportunity to present your case’s strengths and weaknesses.
Sign-In: Once you arrive to court, it is important that you notify the court clerk that you are present for your court date. Failure to do so can result in your case not being called.
Things to Bring: You should bring your court notice advising you to appear in court. If you are displaced, showing the court personnel your letter may help in directing you where to go and what to do.
If Found Guilty: If you are found guilty of speeding, there are many different ways in which it may affect you. This can include but is not limited to fines payable to the court, penalties payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles, insurance increases, and incarceration.
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.Getting the Legal Advantage
