Speeding Tickets

Defense for New York Speeding Tickets

Speeding tickets are a fairly common traffic violation, but many people do not realize the impact they can have on their driver's license. Like many states, New York operates on a "point" system. For instance, a ticket for going up to ten miles over the speed limit will put three points against your driving record with a fine of up to $200 (not counting the surcharge). However, if you were caught speeding in a work zone, the fine will double and could cost you a hefty $400 to nearly $500. The not-so-hidden cost: when you are assessed points, your auto insurance rates will go up. What's more, once you collect 11 points or 3 speeds in an 18-month period, you risk having your license suspended or revoked.

If you have received a speeding ticket in New York, including the Taconic Parkway, New York State Thruway or I-84, it's worth fighting. Call the Poughkeepsie-area law office of Edward T. McCormack at 800-686-2840 for a free consultation.
