Q. I received a speeding ticket on the NYS Thruway for going 85 in a 55 mph zone. How many points would that ticket be?
A. That is a 6 point ticket, since anything from 21 to 30 mph over the speed limit is a six point violation. If you are found guilty of the charge, you will be fined an additional $300.00 by New York State. This is called a driver’s assessment.
|01 to 10 mph over the limit||3|
|11 to 20||4|
|21 to 30||6|
|31 to 40||8|
|More than 40||11|
Q. I have a ticket in NYC TVB. Can I get a plea bargain deal?
A. No. There are several TVB in the State. Their rules do not allow plea bargaining. Every case must go to trial.
Q. I live in Haverstraw and got a speeding ticket in Massachusetts. Will the points transfer back to NY?
A. No. But, the conviction will be reported to NY and this can affect your insurance rates.
Q. I was issued a speeding summons by the Rockland County Police. Is there a difference between a ticket and a summons?
A. They are the same thing.
Q. A New York State Trooper wrote me ticket for unsafe lane change and driving without insurance in Ramapo Court with the wrong date to come to court. Specifically, the ticket gives me a Sunday court date. Can I get this case dismissed?
A. Your case will not be dismissed on those grounds. This is not defective in the eyes of the law.
Q. I was issued a ticket in Greenburgh seven years ago. I just got notice that I must appear in court. Is there a statute of limitations?
A. While there are legal arguments to get your ticket dismissed, the statue of limitations will not succeed.
