Hidden Costs of a Speeding Ticket
Most driver's do not realize the hidden costs behind a simple speeding ticket. Here is a brief overview to help you make an educated decision in pleading guilty or not guilty.
In New York, if you are convicted of 6 or more points in an 18 month period, you will be given a minimum $300.00 fine called a "driver's assessment." This fine is non negotiable. If you fail to pay the fine, your license will be suspended.
If you go to court and attempt to fight the ticket on your own, many courts have a two to three hour wait period until your case is called. You could be losing half a day of work.
In addition, you could be facing hundreds of dollars in insurance increases. If you are convicted of a major offense, your insurance company has the right to raise your rates for years until those points come off your insurance record.

Q. What is the "move over law?"
A. The Ambrose-Searles law also known as New York’s “move over” law was signed by Governor Patterson in the summer of 2010 and came into effect on January 1, 2011.
The move over law requires drivers to slow down and “move over” for stopped emergency vehicles. A conviction to this law can carry either 2 point or 3 point penalty depending on the particular section you are charged. In addition, you can be facing fines and surcharges. This law was enacted to help protect law enforcement from being injured while performing their duties on the road.
Q. I was given a speeding ticket in Greenburgh on I-87. I mistakenly sent my not guilty plea to White Plains Court. Is that ok?
A. You need to retain this firm to follow up and ensure your plea was handled properly. White Plains City Court has no obligation to send your paper work to Greenburgh Justice Court. If you delay, your license could be suspended.
