Lawyer’s Traffic Ticket Guide for New Scotland Justice Court
The Town of New Scotland is situated in central Albany County, southwesterly of the City of Albany, which is the New York State capital. While the area was first settled in the mid-17th century, New Scotland was not founded as a town until 1832, and was originally part of Bethlehem, New York. The area of New Scotland is served by New York State Route 85.
On New York State Route 85, many drivers lose track of their speedometer and find themselves facing a hefty speeding ticket.
Speeding tickets are no laughing matter; not only are they annoying, but they can be very costly. If you were driving 76 mph on a 55 mph zone, you would be facing 6 points on your license as well as a fine up to $393.00 payable to the court, and a fine of about $300.00 payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Not to mention insurance increases that may occur due to a speeding violation.
