The Town of Knox is situated along the borders of both Schoharie and Schenectady Counties in northwestern Albany. The town also contains a hamlet of the same name, plus the hamlets of East Township, West Berne and West Township. Thompson Lake is partially located in southeastern Knox.
Since this area is served by New York State Route 156 and County Route 252, there are many open stretches of road where a driver loses sight of his/her speedometer. In such cases, a driver can face a costly speeding ticket.

Tip: It is important to notify the court clerk that you are present for your court appearance. A failure to do so may result in your case not being called.
Pleading Not Guilty: In order to plea not guilty to your speeding violation, please follow the directions provided on your ticket. After the court has received your plea, you will be sent a letter notifying you when to appear in court. At this court appearance you will be given the opportunity to present your case’s strengths and weaknesses.
Pleading Guilty: If you wish to plead guilty to your speeding violation, please follow the directions provided on your ticket. Once you have entered your plea, the court will send you a fine notice; this fine should be paid prior to the deadline. Failure to pay this fine can result to a suspension of your license. Please note, pleading guilty to a speeding ticket is equivalent to a conviction after trial.
Pleading guilty to a speeding ticket has many long-term financial costs. Some of which include hundreds of dollars on fines, penalties, and insurance increases. Not to mention points will be issued to your license.
In New York State, once you receive 11 points, your license will be suspended. Driving with a suspended license is a crime; if pulled over, the officer can impound the car and have the driver arrested.
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
