It is also important that you notify the court clerk that you are present for your court case. Failure to notify the court clerk 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.How Many Points Will I Face?
In New York State, there is no such thing as a 1-point violation. Speeding tickets range from 3-11 points, which will affect a driver’s privilege to drive for 18 months from the date the summons was issued.
The following chart outlines the amount of points as per the driver’s speed:
01 to 10 mph over the limit
11 to 20
21 to 30
31 to 40
More than 40
Please note that once a driver has received 11 points, their license will be suspended. It is a crime to drive with a suspended license, and if pulled over the officer can impound the car and arrest the driver.About Our Firm
