Don't know about the states, but in a lot of countries where besides the fine they have a point system, you get some 99 year old guy from a different country which will not set a foot on USA soil, and signs (with passport copy) that he was driving your car at the time.

The perfect situation would be a passport from a foreign deceased person.

you only get points for a moving violation so im not sure how that would help

I'm not sure what "moving violation" is, does that mean while driving, such as speeding? if yes, it should still help. If it means that you were stopped by a cop, and they got your papers, then it won't help.

how do you get a speeding ticket without being pulled over?

Red light/speed camera

However AFAIK a ticket by camera is not a moving violation, hence no points.

i think there are points for going through a red on camera, but they see who is driving also in the picture

In Cleveland it is $100 for a red light or speeding camera violation ($200 in a school zone) and it is not a moving violation, it is only a civil offense=no points.

From my 2 camera tickets (I contested my most recent violation and won the case) there's no way you can see who is driving the car from the pictures.

If you know you would need to rush, people use the following 2 tricks:

* wear a scarf and sun glasses and hat
* if you have a second car driving along, and you drive next to each other, they don't know for who the flash was made, i.e. you can always say you drove normally. (obviously this doesn't help for passing red.

 In NY its the car that gets the tkt not the driver with the Cameras. So they dont care who was driving at the time as the owner of the vechile is responsible. Thusly why in NY they dont take a pic of the driver and only the of the car

 The owner cant get away with saying I dont know who was driving my car at that time but I know it wasnt me. The judge will still hit them with the Fine, since all NY cares about is if the car went thru the light and not who was driving it thru it.

Agreed, but they cant give you negative points on YOUR license, if someone else did it (and agrees that he did it).

You will pay the fine, but you shouldn't get neg points.

"Top 5 things to know about Red Lights in New York. (http://www.nytickethelp.com/2009/08/31/top-5-things-to-know-about-red-lights-in-new-york/)

2.  A red light camera ticket is not a moving violation.  The camera cannot identify a particular driver and a moving violation summons cannot therefore be issued against a particular person’s driver license.  Red light camera tickets are treated as parking violations and are issued to the registrant.  If you are the registered owner, you are officially on the hook if a camera snaps a picture of your car disobeying a red light regardless of who was driving just like you’d be responsible for a parking ticket regardless of who actually parked the car."

 did a cop stop You or was it a camera? if a cop thats a moving violation and points if found or plead Guilty. If you plead not guilty and are found Guilty the judge can up the amount of the Fine and usually do

 samething if caught by a camera going thru a Red Light no pts, if a cop stops you Pts

 unfortunately for You Not at All, its not NJ either where all they really want is your $$$. Howell is notorious for that they will bargain on anything. So you get either no pts or 1 or 2  but pay $100s instead of less then $100

 NYC wants your Blood not your $$$

You can try hiring a lawyer if you're worried about insurance rates.  A good one should be able to get you out of the points.

 It does work this way at times.However I know more people that ended up paying top $$ to the Liar and still were found guilty and paid the fine plus the judge uped it as they can and they got the pts as well

 i also know a # of people who were stopped on SI and the Liars were Lawyers and told them to save their $$ as theres absolutly nothing they can do on SI as the cops will give their own Mothers a tkt out there

 theres no guarantee but if you get a guy thats been working the circut for a while and is in with the judge things do happen. But if the cop doesnt want to play ball, then theres nothing that can be done, as he will simply answer Yes or No and not I dont recall or I cant find my notes or something that gives the judge the leeway they need to find for You. When they answer yes or no without any doubt the judge cant do much unless the No or Yes is in your favor

There's a great frum lawyer in Cleveland, Fred Bolotin, who has helped me twice with tickets.

Once he got my points taken off for not coming to a complete stop before making a right on red, and once he helped me get out of a $200 school zone camera ticket.
Title: Re: Trafic Tickets
Post by: mancunian on December 30, 2009, 02:46:29 AM
about my tickets, i got in touch w/ someone from the ch community who knows this stuff.

he told me that where i got them, in staten island (is that SI?) they'res really nothing to do, just hope the cop doesnt show up to court. he told me its not worth hiring a lawer for that, they know when the start that youre losing. he told me i might as well just fill out (i think an affidavit?) for them to read in court during the trial and not even waste my time showing up.

so im going to schedule a court date (i have till the end of this week) and then push it off once, on short notice, and then just send an affidavit - after all my liscense isnt from the state of ny.

i actually got a call today from the pcny, i think its like the police union. its their annual fundraiser. with any donation they send cards and stickers...

did a cop stop You or was it a camera? if a cop thats a moving violation and points if found or plead Guilty. If you plead not guilty and are found Guilty the judge can up the amount of the Fine and usually do
is that true?!?!?!

Post by: mancunian on December 30, 2009, 04:37:03 PM
nono i checked.

its a legitimate orginization, they called me on a business number, they call businesses. i read up on stickers, there a few types. the "thin blue line" which is for cops and their families, and cops dont like those, b/c if your family you dont need the sticker to not get a ticket and if your not you deserve it.
then theres the fraternity ones, i think FOP, which i dont think are hard to get either, and people plaster them all over their cars so its useless.
this one - PCNY - is the union (i think). its not so common, they probably dont have it on ebay. the cops like it, it just means that you gave them $. i read online a few reports of it working and a friend of mine told me in they have stickers on all their cars and its not a waste of time.

im going to fax in a $50 check and if it saves me one ticket its worth it.

WSJ:  NYC cameras catch 1 million running red lights (http://online.wsj.com/article/AP28aad914cab44544a7d598896e30c04e.html), generating $55 million for the city. Mind you, I'll bet 75% of these cars didn't 'run a red light' at all, but rather couldn't stop on time for the (tricky) light as it turned red. What a sick way to make money!

For parking tickets, they take half if they win, that's what I was told by one of the guys who advertises in the Torah times some time ago.
At the time it wasn't worth it for me because I would usually settle for a reduction. But now that he reductions are way harder to get, It might be worth using one of these ticket fighters.

I'm assuming its in NY as it sounds like a NY code.
Depends where you got it, the max is $200. No points, depends on your insurance. Should not do much as it is not a  major violation.

This was in Westhampton Municipality if that matters. Anyone know if this will give me any points?
Also, just got 4 letters in the mail today from different NJ lawyers that want to take the case and plea it down, anyone have experience with these?

Due to yomtov/procrastination I only have 3 days to figure this out...

First of all, if you do not have an NJ license,   you should find out if the points transfer. 

Second of all, as per this list,  its two points. Though the statute numbers don't match the ones you posted so I'm not sure what that means.

Just a tip; A friend of mine was recently told by a lawyer that if you get the points off but the tickets stays what it is -(moving violation), the insurance companies look at it like it was a 4 point ticket.

The reason for that is bec they know you got points -(bec your violation was for moving), and they know that you plea bargained,  so they add a set amount of 4 points. 

(Not from lawyer). The way to avoid the above problem is to have the ticket turned into a parking ticket, which possibly requires an attorney.

This is true. Insurance companies do not all have point systems, they go by the infraction. A speeding ticket can be plead to no points but picked up by insurance companies, the best thing to do, as stated is to plead it to a non-moving violation.

By the token, if you a moving violation in any state, even if the DMV that issued your license never finds out about it the insurance companies can.

The points for a NJ ticket will not transfer to your NY license (Lawyer and my experience) so just pay the fine and your good to go.
(I'm not sure however about insurance, CMIIW but I don't think in NJ they will let you plea bargain to a non moving violation)

Do insurance companies differentiate between moving violations or do they treat them all the same?
 Case in point: I got a ticket for tailgating in NJ which is 5 points! Will it help for insurance purposes to get it knocked down to a different moving violation which only has 2 or 0 points? If it makes a difference I have Travelers.

The best would be to call our agent, if you had a personal relationship with one. There is no real way to determine it, there are a few factors.
Some townships would see in the cops notes that you were going faster then what was noted on the ticket and not give you any additional leeway. Its not such a bad ticket, I would go in there try and talk to a prosecutor and try and come up with a nice true sob story.

This part is not for you but people should be careful what they advertise in this forum.

Mine was in NJ, Municipality: Westampton Township, County: Burlington. I know that the points wont transfer, but I am getting conflicting reports about if insurance company will find out about the speeding ticket anyway. Anyone know one way or another?
Thanks!

I recently called USAA (who is not my auto insurance co.) top get a car insurance quote.  Gave them my license # and other info, and in the process of compiling a quote, they had a record of every summons (moving violation) that I had gotten in the last 10 years or so, as well as any accidents.  They had the violation of record -- i.e., what I had plead guilty to...

So it would seem to me that even though points may not transfer from one state to the other (depending on which states), the insurance company sees all.

My wife just got a seatbelt ticket in nj while driving and the court paper said ticket Was for no seatbelt in a rear seat. So I called in and pleaded not guilty.
Now can we just go to court and say she was not in the rear at the time??
What else can we say?

In NJ the court is allowed to change some mistakes on a ticket. IDK how far that goes but it is s/t you should find out.

Seatbelt ticket affected my insurance.
In NEW JERSEY?? They said its no points and my insurance broker said doesn't effect it in NJ.
I spoke to a lawyer who said they can amend it within 30 days so if I delay past that (which I did) I have a better chance. However in NJ he has many experiences of cops lying so if no points and won't effect ins just pay the 56$

I was told the same. When u check online and see that the fine is still there, it doesn't necessarily mean they didn't fight it, just that the decision wasn't issued yet.
Unfortunately, I'm currently waiting for results on my tickets a well, so I can't completely assure you yet that they keep their word. Let's hope they do.

I had a private driveway in boropark which I was able to block with no problems because there was no meter. They now installed muni meters instead of the regular meters. I got a parking ticket for parking in front of my own driveway thats considered private enough that other people are not able to park there without getting a ticket. Is there any way to fight this? How can they take away the private status of my driveway?
Title: Re: Parking Ticket
Post by: outinstyle on July 25, 2012, 05:00:50 PM
The new Muni Meters now gain the city many new parking spots to charge for. The spot in front of your driveway belongs to the city & not you. You cant park there on alternate sides either.
Title: Re: Parking Ticket
Post by: outinstyle on July 25, 2012, 05:04:31 PM
Besides gaining all this new revenue from new spots (and defeats the purpose of a smart car for avoiding meters), they also get to charge multiple times for the same spot, since once you leave the spot, the clock starts again. When there were meters, once someone put in money, the spot was paid for and the new driver did not have to pay again.

I just want to clarify that there was regular meters there before. And the block had meters but my driveway had no quarter meter and even has no curb. But with the new muni meter it seems that they consider that a regular spot even though there is no curb and the old quarter meters are still there with signs to go pay at the muni meter. can I fight this ticket as i should have the same right to park in front of my own driveway as I had before

i am %99 sure that one of two things happened;
1) the officer knew it was a driveway and figured it can not hurt to give a ticket- worst case scenario the ticket is fought- best case scenario the ticket is paid.
2) he did not realize you were blocking your driveway- there is no chance at all that they can give you a mete ticket for parking in front of your driveway.


i would fight it
Title: Re: Parking Ticket
Post by: outinstyle on July 26, 2012, 09:06:12 AM
I disagree. The Muni Meter effects the entire block, just like alternate side of the street parking rules.
Every car on the street needs to pay the meter, regardless if there is a meter there.
But I guess it cant hurt to try fighting it.
Title: Re: Parking Ticket
Post by: Avid Reader on July 26, 2012, 10:05:10 AM
I recall reading somewhere (might have been a gov website) that if you get a ticket for blocking a driveway and the address on the registration is the same as the address whee you parked, the ticket gets dismissed.

I would think you can fight this ticket as well if the car was registered at the same address. I highly doubt the muni meter covers the spot in front of your driveway.

Alternate side is completely different then a meter situation. Also, with the old meters if there was not a meter in that spot obviously you would not have to pay. why should this new addition of the muni meter change that

So I drove to Point Pleasant last night for the fireworks, parked in the municipal lot for 55 minutes with a 1 hour muni-meter paper in my window.

I drove back to Lakewood right after. This morning I went out to my car in the rain to find a Point Pleasant parking ticket on my windshield, dripping wet and totally illegible!
It's not in their system yet so I'll have to wait until next week to find out what I 'did'!
The only thing I can possibly think of is either I was parked on the line of the parking spot, or they didn't see the muni-meter paper in my window in the dark???

To make things even crazier, my wife got a ticket from Ed Hornak (an infamous crooked rotten apple cop in Lakewood) last month for having a little trinket hanging from the rearview mirror!!

If you object to my description of Ed Hornak, see where he ripped down an eruv  here (http://www.thelakewoodscoop.com/news/2010/06/lpd-officer-rips-down-eruv.html) and here, (http://www.thelakewoodscoop.com/news/2010/06/officer-rips-down-eruv-again.html) and where a newspaper had a 5 part series on his over aggressive absurd ticketing here (http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/the-lakewood-shopper/issue28online/2010070201/7.html#6),  here (http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/the-lakewood-shopper/issue30online/2010071601/7.html#6),  here (http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/the-lakewood-shopper/issue31online/2010080601/16.html#16), and here (http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/the-lakewood-shopper/issue33onlineb/2010082001/16.html#16). The Lakewood police chief supposedly tried to discipline him but I guess it hasn't helped!

The ticket is starting to dry, and it looks like it's for improper display - I had put it stuck into the drivers side window. I guess it was supposed to be on the dashboard but come on.....  10-3.5   Improper display of paid parking receipt (http://www.pointpleasantbeach.org/court.shtml)
I called the court they said to contest it I need to come down to the court, and the prosecutor will offer to discount the fine by the amount that I paid for parking! So a $2.50 discount!!
Anyone else ever get a ticket for improper display of the paper??

A friend called me that they are giving out tickets.
I came down, the cop already started to write the ticket.
I asked what is the problem?
He says I'm parked illegibly.
I sid where is there a no parking sign.
He says, there where but someone took them down.
I asked so how can you give me a ticket?
he replied well there are cones here.
I inquired, but they are against the fence, indicating construction, it doesn't mean no parking.
He replied, well "someone" called us down, and i'm doing my job.
I will give the the lowest in-fracture i have, an improper parking ticket.

Take some additional pictures, so you have captured the "whole block", and do a hearing by mail.  You'll get it dismissed.

For complaints, you can file a complaint with the City Advocate, Bill Deblasio.  They have access to the PVB records on their system and can help as well.

1) I am not sure but I could ask some local cops that I know
2) No you can't, he's doing his job. - similar story, my friend who was on the Fire Dept was working at a construction site (4th & forest) several years ago and his car was parked in front of the fire hydrant as in the morening there is no parking as every spot in the area is being used for Satmar.. Someone called the cops that he's blocking the hydrent, my friend saw the cop and showed him that he's part of the fire dept and has Id in his window and said if there was a fire he would know about it before anu fire trucks came as he had his pager on him... The cop told him I'm sorry but since someone called in a complaint he needs to issue a ticket.

3) Probably not as there are no points involved and you'll end up spending a lot of time trying to fight it which I doubt will be successful

You don't own the parking spot with the curbcut. You own the access to the driveway.

Its not a legal spot for someone else to park in, because he would be blocking the driveway, so the city never put up a meter.  However, if someone would park there, lulei the issue of blocking the driveway, its a metered spot.

Makes sense that you got the ticket.

It won't end up with a suspended license because the rental agency will pay it. They will pay it with the card they have on file for you. I have no idea what happens if you cancel the card. Remember, parking tickets are always the responsibility of the owner of the car, no matter who was driving, which in this case is the rental company.

Is there any way a parking ticket can lead to a suspended licence?

I don't think so. It can cause them to impound your car though.

It won't end up with a suspended license because the rental agency will pay it. They will pay it with the card they have on file for you. I have no idea what happens if you cancel the card. Remember, parking tickets are always the responsibility of the owner of the car, no matter who was driving, which in this case is the rental company.


Interestingly enough, Avis sent me a letter that my ticket is past due and the judgement was guilty, so they will be forwarding all the docs to me and that I should pay it. Avis never charged me. what should I make out of this?

Is there any way a parking ticket can lead to a suspended licence?
It can not suspend your license but it could prevent you for renewing your registration. They have no proof who was actually driving the car so it can not be part of licensing.

I'll be honest I have no idea what Avis is doing in this case. Maybe they don't have a card on file for you? Did you cancel the card you gave them?
Also how old is the ticket? At this stage it sounds like NYC has no info from you and that Avis wants you to pay what is ,r rightfully, your ticket. Not exactly sure, but MAYBE you should wait and see if you get any letters from NYC or if Avis amps up their pressure. Or just pay and sleep easy. :)

So here's my deal. I turned left through a yellow light at a large intersection this morning. Cop was at the light waiting to go straight(which means his straight is headed in the same direction as my left turn). The light turned red while I was in the intersection and he pulled me over right away. Gave me a ticket for "passed red signal". Although he couldn't see if I turned on red, he said he counted the time that I was in the intersection till his light turned green. 1st of all, I have an out of state license, so no points. 2nd, he told me to plead not guilty and he will try to lower the ticket "as much as I could". When I asked him how much it officially is, he just said that he can even try to let me off with 6 month probation.
3rd point is that he misspeled my first name. Does that help me? All the info on my license is on the ticket correctly except my first name, which he mixed 2 letters around. Can I get the ticket off for this?
Thoughts?
Oh. It happened in town of clarkstown, in rockland county

How am I supposed to talk to a "judge" who is working for the agency that is penalizing me?!

I wish there was a website where we can vent and rate these judges by name.  It's about time they be held accountable, they report to nobody, they run their own dictatorship.  I got some old whiny rascal who refused to listen to me, they say and do as they wish.  To top it all off, you have to pay an extra penalty just for fighting it!

You can't appeal a traffic court ruling?

In order to appeal A NYS traffic ticket decision you must first order the transcript for $50 which is non refundable even  if you are not guilty. Then it goes to the appeals court which usually answers, after you put in so much time, money and energy, two words DECISION UPHELD. Remember that they don't have to give an explanations why they do what they do.

Unfortunately, (after a quick Google search) there seems to only be one (CMIIW) such website out there (thats not geared solely towards lawyers), it's called robeprobe.com, and even they are so so..

Considering the amount of websites out there that offer millions of reviews and rate everything from restaurants to doctors, this area is seems to be sorely lacking.

Perhaps there's a pervasive fear of criticizing judges?  IDK. 
Are there laws that grant judges some extra protection?
I mean, everything barring nothing is leveled against the president etc.. so why spare the judges?

First of all, this website is for regular judges, not moving violation or parking ticket judges.

Second, must New York blogs on this site, are not in English! Believe it or not!

Third, this website is not organized by names of the judges like all other judge review books are, they are organized by the last post which makes it unproductive.

No idea why you're taking this personally. DDF is a forum that behaves in a certain matter. You're not above that and you shouldnt post here unless you have something benefecial to say.

My point here was that the lack of such a website is not a fault of the judicial system, as this is a free country & YOU can make that website. Thus it might be a failure of the people, but its not right to say 'judges are unfair'.

As far as the appeal process, what exactly do you want? The bottom line is that there is more incentive to battle rogue judges in real courts, & thus there is less oversight in traffic courts.

Got a red light ticket today from a cop, while going through yellow. Same exact type as last one (which got thrown out in court bec cop didn't show)...only diff is that last one was in clarkstown, this one in monsey (corner of college and 59).
So will they see my first ticket and give me a bigger punishment? And  if I had a family member in the car, can that person testify for me that it was yellow?

pretty sure they cant see your first ticket. you should have gotten a not guilty for it so i dont think it goes on your record

If the last one got dismissed, it was dismissed.  Shouldn't be able to be seen or considered in this proceeding....good luck, and try being more careful on the yellows :)

what's really annoying is that I usually stop at them, and that I see people drive blatantly through a red and nothing happens. This cop had to write tickets and that's why he got me. the problem is that it's my word vs. his

Goto a mechanic and get a bill that your car was towed and he replaced the battery.  Then send that bill in with the ticket, say how your car died and this was the safest place to move the car until the tow truck came without causing any traffic.  Worked like a gem for me more then once

For all people visiting NY, the city does not EVER paint yellow lines.  Those are private people or companies. For hydrants you need to know the distance. For bus stops you can't park until you see a sign saying you can. In general, make sure that there is no sign anywhere on the ENTIRE block saying not to park before you do. I've seen blocks where one corner has a no parking sign and no other signs on the block. That means the whole block is no parking. It's a crappy rule but that's how it is.

it's happened quite a few times just among those people i know, really depends on the cop (though i've never heard of it being enforced without somewhat of a curb cut)- the homeowner has little to lose the, the cop very likely is too lazy to check if the driveway is legal or not and he's even less likely to report an illegal one to the dob or dot (i'm pretty sure they both give permits for driveways) for more info google illegal driveways in midwood

Keep in mind that NJ only records 2 points per out of state ticket.

If for example each ticket is 4 points and $200 (Total 8 points $400), NJ would only give you 2 points each so you would end up getting a total of 4 points $400.

If all a lawyer is offering to do is get two points taken off each ticket they are doing absolutely nothing for you (besides the fact that you will need to pay them + pay court fees + potentially higher fee to court in plea bargain to convince them to give less points.

I don't know what the tickets are for but if it's a senario like I described you are best off just paying it....

They don't just push off the hearings. They often get cases dismissed for minor technicalities like failure to present a supporting deposition. Other times they'll get the tkt reduced to a parking violation which is much cheaper and won't give you points.

When you tell the judge you didnt get a supporting deposition their answer is then make a motion to dismiss it. Most people dont know and cant make a motion on their own and a lawyer will charge for a motion (besides his regular fee) at least $150.

When you tell the judge you didnt get a supporting deposition their answer is then make a motion to dismiss it. Most people dont know and cant make a motion on their own and a lawyer will charge for a motion (besides his regular fee) at least $150.

"You're honor, I move to dismiss for failure to present a supporting deposition".

Doesn't sound too hard.

How's that?
car deserves it however it would have been faster, easier and simpler to simply go over the car. I've heard the 'stories' where it happened but nobody ever had it first hand of had period other than the proof of concept picture, i.e. Video showing it being done or even a picture of the pump actually being used to fight a fire.

Yet not a single one shows the fire truck actually pumping water into a fire. I stand by my previous statement.
And the minivan did not need to be broken into either. If it's real it's a waste of time that could be better spend actually putting out the fire.

One of them has a fire truck parked right next to it, a fireman walking by, and has water gushing out of the hydrant. That's not enough for you?
Either way I agree with you. Waste of time but I guess they feel like they need to prove a point.

My point just was that they know many ways of getting the tkt ticket dismissed (glad you know about a supporting deposition, would you have known you had to have requested one before filing that motion?), and that pushing off the court date isn't all a lawyer can do.

It will probably not go up (depending on which insurance).
Due to the fact that it will probably end up costing double the amount of the ticket to fight it,
IMHO it is worth paying it, and don't let it happen again.

Not the end of the world. The lawyer just calls the court clerk and reschedules, the clerk will usually get the Judge to pull back the suspension.
They don't suspend your license immediately it takes a few days or weeks till it enters the system.
The Judge will see it but IME it has no impact on the ruling or plea deal.

Yes, if you sign up for a new policy just before the points post you will lock in that year at a lower rate than if you sign up for a new policy just after the points post. They don't adjust your rate mid year because points were added.

The insurance company gets it after you are found guilty in court for up to 3 years from the date of the ticket. So if your court date was a year after you got the ticket and you were found guilty, the insurance company will consider your ticket when determining your rate in years 2 and 3 from the ticket. Lets say your court date was pushed of a full 2 years after the ticket then your insurance company will only consider your ticket in year 3.

This guy named Chris Inzerillo (718) 676-7223  gives these courses that take 45-1hr in pizza stores in the tri state area NJ & catskills etc... that gets you 4 points off your license & 10% off your insurance.

I actually went tonight to the class, which was nice & funny in Woodmere & there were about 30 people.

It's only $36 & it comes with one free drink & slice.

I know he is doing another one soon in Kew Garden Hills at Naomi's Pizza Store on Main Street.
There is an ad in front of the store with details.

Judges in NYC usually don't care to much to listen what you say. Must of them just say guilty and that's it. If you have a different experience I want to know how you got a not guilty verdict.

I've used a lawyer about 5 times for NYC traffic tickets over the past 8 years. I won 4 and lost 1. (There is no plea bargaining in NYC. It's either win or lose.)

There.

P.S. In America, as in (lhavdil) the Torah, it is called innocent until proven guilty. Absent a guilty verdict you maintain all presumptions of innocence as the next guy. Considering I was actually acquitted four times, it was affirmed by a judge that I was innocent of the charges. Hence, only one moving violation in eight years.

You never drive over the speed limit? I think many people drive a lot at 80 MPH on the highway. the difference between getting 1 or two tickets in 8 years or 5 tickets in 8 years could just boil down to  how much you drive and how aware/alert you are to speed traps.

It also depends on what the tickets were for. For example, I was driving 40 in a 40 zone once, and for one block the speed limit dropped to 20 for a school zone. I was 'nabbed going 40'. A lot different than a ticket for going 95 on a highway.

BH never had any moving violations before.  Live in busy area of NYC, they added a new "No Right Turn" sign on one of the streets in the area.  Made the right without seeing the sign, got pulled over into a line of cars marked off with cones (seems like Police were pulling over tons of cars doing this).  Got hit with a 1110A Disobeying a Traffic Device.  $130 + 2 points.  Heard that it's POSSIBLE to get it knocked down to a parking ticket but also heard that's incorrect as in NYC it's either win or lose and no knocking anything down.  Anything I can do about this?  I plead not guilty and have a court date in a month but might just be easier to suck it up and pay....

Thanks!

NYC is win or lose, no plea bargaining or reduced verdicts. Going to court you have nothing to lose (other than your time) since pleading guilty and paying without fighting it in court is the same thing as losing in court. Of course you have a much better shot with a lawyer, but they cost $300, give or take (and win or lose.)

I fully support implementing speed and red light cameras on EVERY intersection in America. That is because drivers WILL slow down and not jump lights once they realize they WILL be busted and fined rather than there being a 1 in a 100 chance a cop will catch them. And it WILL save lives. And that's what counts. I also support ramping up moving violations enforcement by police too, greatly, for the same reason.

That being said, I support extremely reducing parking violation laws, enforcement, and fines. Substantially. Especially in cities where parking is a nightmare.

Interesting. So parking by fire hydrants, too close to intersections, blocking fire lanes and entrances to parking lots is not a public safety issue?

Post by: Shlomo Zalman on July 01, 2013, 12:37:42 AM
1. The parking violations I would ease up or completely eliminate are types such as Expired Meters and Alternate Side Parking. Not fire hydrants (though I would insist on removing dead fire hydrants and not ticket for parking near a dead on) or blocking intersections or otherwise parking impeding traffic.

2. The studies about red light cameras show it increases *fender-benders* when the driver realizes at the last minute there's a camera. A) they are mostly [usually small] property-damage only accidents B) Would be almost a non-issue if nearly *every* intersection had a camera since the drivers would know its there beforehand C) would save LIVES by preventing many serious accidents when folks speed through a light.

Where? I'll assume you're referring to Lakewood which recently started cracking down on pedestrian crossings. Just to take a guess. Since this is a new enforcement sting I would assume the prosocuter will cut you a decent deal after you tell him you didn't know or see...

Seatbelt tickets for adults, no points, however, children seatbelt tickets are with points.

I got a parking ticket in Manhattan for "failure to display muni receipt".
(It was displayed,  but it was upside down  :( )

They wrote the wrong car "make" on the ticket.
Does that do anything for me as far as fighting the ticket?


You have very good chances of getting it dismissed.
   Make sure to write that the ticket does not describe your vehicle and include proof of that like your registration.
   Then of course submit proof that you paid
A)   the muni meter receipt
B)   hopefully you paid by credit card so print out a copy from the credit card charge as well.

Points won't transfer to your PA license. I believe there's double fines in work areas which might make it worth it to get a lawyer. I have a lawyer for under $200 but there would prob still be a fine of $100+ dollars, it's your call.

Why would you pay $490 instead of just paying $300? IIWY I would just go to court on my own and hope to lower the fine to $100 on my own. Again there's zero risk as there's no points involved for a PA DL holder.

Definitely, and even when coming from the opposite direction:
Q: Can cops really still get an accurate radar account of your vehicle speed while they are driving from the opposite direction while pointing the radar gun?

A: Yes.

Its called a moving radar, State Patrol Sgt. J.J. Gundermann said. The radar in the patrol car calculates the patrol cars speed and the speed of a vehicle either approaching from the opposite direction or another vehicle approaching from the rear.

- Seattle Post Intelligencier
I had the police in Israel radar me on the way to eilat, he was coming from the other direction, they can measure your speed no problem. He turned his lights on, about 100 feet before he passed me and made a u turn, so these machines are quite good.

127 on a 90 road, I saw him coming and was able to slow down from 145

you receive six or more points on your NYS driver record during a period of 18 months and the violations occurred in NYS, Quebec or Ontario on or after November 18, 2004.

Liberty isn't such a easy Court however with only 17 over you could probably get it down to no points on your own, and for sure with a lawyer.

11-20 is 4 points, 21-30 is 6 points. Nothing to do with the work zone which only doubles the initial fine, nothing more. Of course some courts are stricter about them
However if he already has 2 points within 18 months then he would have need to pay the DRT tax.

I know that if you answer the ticket in time it is cheaper then if you miss the court dates. They add all kinds of fees and it gets very expensive. Depending on where your license is from you could just pay it, but if it would affect your driving record you can just google a traffic ticket lawyer and enter the town you got the ticket.

I have seen Courts in CA demand you to hand over your license to the local court for missing your court dates, even if you want to pay off the ticket. I have not seen any state agency honer the Court's Jurisdiction in suspending anyone once you pay.
Title: Re: Traffic Tickets
Post by: Hirshthg on July 30, 2013, 10:38:12 PM
online you have 30 days to pay it
IN NYC you have 30 days from the day it is entered into the system until they do anything. You can enter your information and the ticket number even before the ticket is entered and they will email you when (if it ever) is entered by the cop.

Sometimes people get lucky and the cop never ends up entering it.

I got a moving violation 2 point ticket for not yielding to pedestrians, is it worth fighting, and if yes who should i use. My friend got also a seat belt ticket do you get points fro it,  and if yes is it worth fighting. It was in Brooklyn.
Gr... I hate it when people give you bits and parts of the story. Dan make a stick with all the ticket info....
Failing to yield is 3 points x2 is 6 points, definitely worth fighting. Also if you got both tickets at the same time you only have to pay 1 legal fee with most attorneys.

Adult seat belt has no points but it does go on your record, it does increase your insurance, and  it does have safety factors. The question is how much is your record worth to you.
Title: Re: Traffic Tickets
Post by: Hirshthg on July 30, 2013, 10:48:39 PM
1. Default judgement and 2. possibly A warrant to lock you in a cage also known as a warrant for your arrest and/or possibly revocation of your license. If you mistakenly missed a court date, you should call the court immediately to ensure there are no extra penalties, fines, or warrants and/or to schedule a new court appearance or appeal.

Lol!
For parking tickets they get a money judgement and if you don't pay that they will eventually suspend the registration of your car. When your car registration is suspended eventually they will suspend your driver's license.

However this entire time there is no warrant for arrest, and the only reason they can arrest you for is if you are driving (with a suspended license or registration).

What if it doesn't show up at all, does it mean for them that I never got the ticket and I am free?

NYC is win or lose, no plea bargaining or reduced verdicts. Going to court you have nothing to lose (other than your time) since pleading guilty and paying without fighting it in court is the same thing as losing in court. Of course you have a much better shot with a lawyer, but they cost $300, give or take (and win or lose.)

If you go down to the Court for trial you can get a better price by paying $100 to one of the suits standing around to take your case to trial. Otherwise it would be $300 by most people.

Does anyone how it works with points, I.e. Does the insurance company see them as soon as they hit your license and Jack your rates up or only when you are Due for a payment. My q is basically would it be of any benefit to pay for the entire yr before my court date In case I lose the case. Thanks!

"The insurance company gets it after you are found guilty in court for up to 3 years from the date of the ticket. So if your court date was a year after you got the ticket and you were found guilty, the insurance company will consider your ticket when determining your rate in years 2 and 3 from the ticket. Lets say your court date was pushed of a full 2 years after the ticket then your insurance company will only consider your ticket in year 3. "

Incorrect. The tickets affects your record 3 years+ from the date of conviction. Pushing of a ticket only helps to fog up the mind of the police officer  so he doesn't remember the event.

The real players in NYC show up at the first appearance and only adjourn if they see the cop showed up. This way the cop needs to appear each time and hopefully will eventually stop.

This guy named Chris Inzerillo (718) 676-7223  gives these courses that take 45-1hr in pizza stores in the tri state area NJ & catskills etc... that gets you 4 points off your license & 10% off your insurance.

Saying that the course takes points off your license is very misleading (yet the dmv used to use the same wording).
All it does is extend your NYS limit from 11 to 14. The points are still there, ad effect you in many other ways.

@NI To summarize:

If you don't have any NY points on your DL and you hope not to get any additional points within 12-18 months you will not be assessed the $300 fee. Taking a lawyer (if you don't have additional points) will not affect you, other than burn a hole in your pocket.

If you would go down on your own you would probably save yourself $100+ dollars for the work zone violation and will give you the leeway of getting another ticket within the above time frame.

My name is basically terribly misspelled (first and last) my DOB is wrong and my address is an old address that I used to work at (it's also missing the apt no.)

It says "Traffic Ticket" on top of the yellow slip they handed me.

I feel like if I ignore this, it can really bite me in the @$$ later, but do they have any way of getting to me?

I feel like if I ignore this, it can really bite me in the @$$ later, but do they have any way of getting to me?

Thanks.

If you pay it and you are right that they will never catch you, it will not go on your record, and will disappear after 3+ years, however if you ignore it, it hangs around forever, and if they ever do find a way t tag you too it, it would be a lot more expensive and damaging then.

I know a guy from Canada who found a way to get parking tickets to not find him, and he racked up 30K in parking tickets. Then one day, they took his car, and sent him the full bill.

Yes, thanks Hirshthg, it was so tempting to just ignore it, but the prospects of having to deal with a bigger issue down the line got me to pay it now.
I don't like being "had" and getting a ticket for biking the wrong way down the street definitely feels like that.

I found it incredibly difficult to completely invent a name / address etc. so I chose the distortion route (misspelled name etc.) which I can always claim was the officer's problem.

Every traffic lawyer I speak to says it ends 3 years from the ticket date and starts from the court date. Are they all wrong?

Hello, earlier in this thread you had one other person give you this info with a website:
I found this for NY

For DMV purposes, points start from date of violation; insurance can use date of conviction. (http://nyticketlaw.com/faq.php)[/b][/u]
I would give you the website I am promoting and of which there is a link under my name, but they may just ban me.

Can you tell me please who are those attorneys you spoke with? The problem is that the laws regarding how long DMV hurts you the points is located under the rules of the commissioner of DMV which everyone is familiar with, the laws regulating the insurance companies because of traffic tickets are not as commonly known.

Here you have links to DMV.GOV (trustworthy?) which talk about action the dmv takes against you for violations: http://www.dmv.ny.gov/license.htm#points Not that the conviction DOES NOT leave your record after 18 months, and that this "part of DMV" can't tell you how long insurance companies will spike you.

Here is a link which give you more information as to how long the violation is on the record and is visible (to everyone including car insurance co.): may increase you for. http://www.dmv.ny.gov/abstract.htm#WHAT
"The DMV removes a conviction or an accident from a driver record on January 1 of the fourth year after the year of the conviction or the accident. For example, an accident or a conviction that occurred during 2003 remains on the driver record until January 1, 2007."

All of the above is using cheat sheets, if you want to read the real law, you can look it up yourself under: public.leginfo.state.ny.us/menuf.cgi Go to "laws of new york" Go to "VAT" and then you can go shopping for the original source in the law. For the 18 month rules you can go to article 20 and then to 510.

I can see why having a receipt wouldn't get you off, if I saw a cop writing a ticket I'd also go run to buy a receipt, you would need proof that you just arrived then.

Depends. Some tickets do go on the record like a NY adult seat belt but don't have points. You can buy a copy of your driving record online if you really want to know. I would not be so honest if I was not obligated to be, and I would tell them I do not recall but don't take my word for it, and let them chase the record down. If you report a conviction that is not on the record the insurance company is allowed to use it against you.

I know that the speed with transfer from NY to Quebec, I would be surprised to hear that is doesn't transfer from NJ to Quebec. If you don't have a NJ license then the NJ MVC will not record the conviction.

Um yes I am saying that they are sometimes wrong. And yes if you look at your record, it will be there for 3 years, and then until the next January. The only question is what the insurance companies will do about it. Go to anyone else on google and give them $20 or so and you will see it yourself (if you have anything there).

I see records every day, and there are convictions from 2010 and on.

Sorry, I just saw your post. I don't monitor this site so PM for direct questions but to answer your question. Depends on the insurance company. Most in fact almost all will surcharge if you have a ticket regardless if there were points associated with it
Title: Re: Traffic Tickets

On your NY driver's abstract which you can't see online without paying a fee and getting it as a email ($12+), or you can dial in to https://search.dmv.state.ny.us/winjahtml/default.asp if you have a account and pay $7 per search. If you are a government agency and have a government account (like a village court or district attorney) you get them for free. I presume that insurance agencies pay the statutory $7 Mr. YSP?

]Most in fact almost all will surcharge if you have a ticket regardless if there were points associated with it
This is correct. And the question of where are these convictions without points kept, in the same place as the convictions with points! In the DMV MVC file on you, called your driver's abstract (history).

I tried to dispute it on the grounds that the closest sign to the car was obstructed, and located 70ft away from the car.

They responded guilty because "one authorized regulatory sign anywhere on a block, which is the area of sidewalk between one intersection and the next, shall be sufficient notice of the restriction(s) in effect on that block."

Even if it doesn't sound normal this is still the NYC laws, rules & regulations. It doesn't cost to appeal it and you have nothing to lose. Just don't use the "only one sign 70 feet away" argument.

You can claim he got the wrong guy but I think there is very little chance that anything your write will outweigh the cop's testimony.

In some states they charge you less if you plead guilty than if you are found guilty. You may want to look into the story where you got the ticket before fighting it.

I'm new here and have not read all the previous post's so maybe i'm being redundant.  But to have an infraction dismissed, you need more then a "clerical" error UNLESS you hire an attorney.  With a good traffic attorney, almost anyone can get out of an infraction.  If you fight it yourself, you need something substantial.  Examples would be speed radar not certified, wrong traffic violation cited, video proof you didn't commit the offense, etc.

Hope this helps.

You can't get off a ticket for that petty mistake unless he wrote the wrong name completely, just filling out the name in the wrong box is not enough.

What is your source Bostener?

As long as the information about the offense are correct such as violation number and place of the violation the ticket will be valid and will be effective as long as they can pin it on you, even if your identity is incorrect on the ticket. You can see these same facts on the websites of many reputable attorneys in new york.

You are welcome to post your own sources contrary if you like.

I am not sure I understand what you meant.
A simple search on Amazon or bn.com you find many many books on how to get out of a ticket.
Now on our question, what makes a ticket defective, there's statutes, case law, law firms have expansive legal data basis that make it easier to search (G. I. NOT Y. F. here) like Lexus etc. These things also very from one jurisdiction to another. So there is reputable places to search if this ticket is considered defective.

I just spoke with a guy on Friday who got a ticket 3 years ago and didn't answer it because his name was not entered on the ticket. Unfortunately his DOB was and his license was suspended and a warrant was put out for him, with his name.

You are welcome to step into a courtroom and see what flies and what doesn't. I don't happen to know the case law behind this practise, however I do see it practiced every day. You are looking for a debate so you can back up your bad advice with meaningless arguments.

You are welcome to try to find an attorney, who has the time and patience to explain the evaluation of each law to the point that you don't need their help.

I am still eagerly awaiting for you to show some source backing up your claim that they are dismissible, and then you can explain why it has never worked for anyone one else.

I suggest you do so anyway every 4 years to get the %10 car insurance discount.
As per the judge's orders, many judges (and prosecutors) don't think you need another class after you just took one less than a year ago. Therefore instead of trading the class for parking ticket, the option may not longer be on the table.
One may as well use whatever leverage they can find.

Got a red light ticket today from a cop, while going through yellow. Same exact type as last one (which got thrown out in court bec cop didn't show)...only diff is that last one was in clarkstown, this one in monsey (corner of college and 59).
So will they see my first ticket and give me a bigger punishment? And  if I had a family member in the car, can that person testify for me that it was yellow?
today,is the trial date for this one :-(
cop wrote on ticket that he observed me pass through the intersection while my traffic signal was a steady red....would it help to being a pix showing that it was impossible to see my red light from where the cop was (at night you can see reflection and therefore you see the color, but by day, you can't see it). It happened during the day.
I made a left @the intersection and cop was at the light to my right waiting for his green, while I went through my yellow.

Regardless of your actual distance, whether they write 1ft or 14ft on the ticket, the fact you were under 15ft makes you guilty.

NYS VTL 1213 "driver's view obstructed"  fine amount $0-$150 + Surcharge $93 = max fine of $293. In addition it caries 2 points.

Is each ticket, looked at individually, consistent with the location of the hydrant and its distance from the intersection?

You probably have a better chance if you can prove one of the tickets is not consistent with the actual facts on the ground then just arguing that the two tickets contradict each other.

You can still fight it,  unless 90 days goes by for the default conviction. However you will need to go down there to get a new date. Bond is $40. You can tell them why you could not find it online and they "may" just give you a new date without bond. Maybe.

Excerpt from following website:
http://albany-lawyer.blogspot.com/2009/07/do-points-transfer-out-of-state-tickets.html
New Jersey recognizes out-of-state tickets, and they generally count for 2 points there, no matter how many points they are in the state where you got the ticket. Could be a 3-point or 11-point speed in NY? Either way, 2 points in NJ. Your lawyer (again, a hint) may be able to get you a deal to something that doesn't count for points in NJ.

Something to keep in mind that even if the points don't transfer to your license, depending on the insurance you have they can make your rates go up based on the points that you should've receive I.e. Geico.

How would your insurance know? If you dont get points, it means it wasnt reported to the state that issued your license.

Its in the system and somehow it goes to your license even though it doesn't count towards the 12 points. I'm talking from experience and frm speaking to lawyers.

Title: Ticket on Cary Ct in Brooklyn
Post by: Palm5 on October 27, 2013, 12:19:08 AM
I got a ticket tonight on Cary Ct in Brooklyn. It's a tiny pass through that is between J and K and goes from Coney to East 12.

The street supposedly is a private street and is unregulated by the city. At least this is what the sign says. There are no street signs.

I got a ticket that says it is a fire zone.

What should I do?

It used to be much easier before the internet.

Excerpt from following website:
http://albany-lawyer.blogspot.com/2009/07/do-points-transfer-out-of-state-tickets.html
New Jersey recognizes out-of-state tickets, and they generally count for 2 points there, no matter how many points they are in the state where you got the ticket. Could be a 3-point or 11-point speed in NY? Either way, 2 points in NJ. Your lawyer (again, a hint) may be able to get you a deal to something that doesn't count for points in NJ.
You missed reading the whole thread. We are talking about NJ to MO. Not NJ to NY.

Something to keep in mind that even if the points don't transfer to your license, depending on the insurance you have they can make your rates go up based on the points that you should've receive I.e. Geico.

While insurance co.s can rank up your price if you are convicted even when the points do not transfer to your state that is only when the conviction is recorded somewhere where the insurance co. can read it from their computer. When you get a conviction in NJ and it does not get recorded in the state it is transferred to the insurance co can't read it, and if you don't tell them, they can't know.

For instance, if you are convicted for a speeding ticket in the "upper saddle river municipal court", that court does not have a data base which is assessable to data inquires like the NJ MVC state data base or your county clerk's office.

You may take talked to lawyers and insurance co. but the facts on the grounds are, NJ is a great place to plead guilty to tickets for out of state drivers.

My understanding is that NJ always counts a out of state infraction which they has as well as a 2 point out of state conviction. I am under the assumption that  you would get 2 points in NJ for the NY ticket.
For free you can call any NJ attorney and ask them for a "free consultation" to find out if it transfers.

I spoke a lawyer based in ny (something like ticket fighter) he was sure that there is 2 points transfered.

My lawyer in nj said the violation will transfer over but nj will NOT give me points since they don't have points for this violation. Insurance though may go up, as the insurance companies can see the violation. (Same was said by Mrs. Shain, for those that know who she is)

Still have to decide if its worth to fight it, I was told it's a 50/50 chance to get it dissmissed. Staten Island is a tough court.

Definitely don't want insurance to go up. And if I get another ticket in NY, I would have 7 points, meaning a $300 surcharge plus $75 a point.

I don't think the Spring Valley cop has jurisdiction to issue parking violations outside of Spring Valley.  Any ideas of how to fight this?

There are places where Spring Valley and Ramapo overlap. You should check to see that it was truly outside on Spring Valley. I don't think the cop would accidentally wander outside of Spring Valley.

They have all kinds of problems with the municipality code in Spring Valley.

By the way we heard from a judge recently that starting in January NJ will start assessing points for cell phone tickets. I think the first ticket is 2 points and then a second one 3 or 5 points (not sure). This could change the answer to the above question."

I think that if NJ does not have it in their code it should not transfer. Who wants to test it out?

Both Monsey and Spring Valley are within the Town of Ramapo (though a portion of Spring Valley is in the Town of Clarkstown). 

This was in VG which is right on the border.  I called Ramapo, they told me VG is in Spring Valley, which is very strange to me, because the zip is 10952 (Monsey), not 10977 (SV). 

Indeed, the tax map seems to indicate that VG is in SV.  So I'm grasping at straws.  Anyone?

VG is in SV. You pay taxes to SV.
Zip code has nothing to do with Jurisdiction, it is for the Federal Post office to figure out where you are.  You can send mail to VG with zip 10977 also:)

I'm still trying to decide what to do.
But lets say I plead guilty today, and no points will come to NJ because they don't give for this violation.
When January comes (if they start giving points), will I get the points then? Or will nothing come because at the time of the violation they didn't give points?

One would hope that they will not go back through the records and ad points for prior convictions.
reasons that should not happen 1 these records are done by hand.
2 Once the record comes from NY to NJ they throw it out, and don't actively scan the NY record constantly

Then again if one day they transfer over to automated computer based systems that may change.

Think about when NYS changed the rules (this January) and decided to add up all of your traffic convictions over the last 25 years when  you though they would go away after 4...

I got a ticket last week in Brooklyn for "failing to yield right of way for pedestrian in a crosswalk with a signal" basically what happened was the cop was on the opposite side of the 2 way street i was turning in to with his lights on blocking my vision, and i haven't noticed the pedestrian till i reached the crosswalk and once i reached the crosswalk the pedestrian stopped and showed me to go.
The ticket is 3 points and i have a clear record, i have called up a lawyer and they want $300 upfront with a 65% chance of wining it, so my question is as follows why do people hire a lawyer for the DMV points or for insurance increase? because if it's for DMV points i can take a defensive driving course and get the points off, and if the reason is for insurance increase, will my insurance go up if i'm insured for 3 years already with a clean record over one violation?

The 15 day thing is a suggested time line. You have 30 days from when the cop enters it into the computer.

Your NJ license ID number is not what you use. If you enter your name, date of birth, along with the ticket number, then the DMV.NY.GOV site will give you a option that they will email you when the ticket is entered. If you are not getting that option you are doing something wrong.

Attorneys in the city charge anywhere from $100 to $500, however you need to find out how good they are. Check their online ratings and reviews.

You should also call your insurance broker and find out how much the conviction will cost your insurance over the next 4 years.

The class does not take points off in NYS. The main issue if you have 1 violation is the insurance increase over the next 4 years. Call your broker and ask them what this conviction would do to you. If you get a few tickets you can be looking at a suspension.

No it could mean that the cop entered your ticket information in wrong, or that you are entering your information in wrong. Try using the last 4 of your ss as well.

If that doesn't work you may need to call the DMV: say goodby to another hour of your life...

I got my first ticket since moving to Cleveland.  A cop stopped me on S.Taylor Rd going north from Cedar.  He claimed I was doing 39 in a 25 mph zone.  (Just passed Taylor Commons - home of Shimon's famous Fish & Poultry).  Does it pay to try and fight these things?  The ticket says he clocked me on radar.  It looks like the charge is $155 but I don't see where it says anything about points.  Does anyone know if there are points for this sort of thing?

No it could mean that the cop entered your ticket information in wrong, or that you are entering your information in wrong. Try using the last 4 of your ss as well.

If that doesn't work you may need to call the DMV: say goodby to another hour of your life...

25 MPH over the limit is pretty bad.  And they usually have heavy fines in NY.  You may want to look into getting a lawyer.  It will cost you but can be worth it if they get the points off.  Do you have to make an appearance?  That's another big pain if you don't live in the area.

In some states (IDK about NY) they make it a felony if you go over a certain speed (or a certain mph above the limit).

ETA: I just read that speeding alone cannot be a felony, but many times when the speeding ticket is for a high speed, they will add a felony charge, such as reckless driving.

6 point speeds carry around $700 in fines aside from the insurance increase and 6 points.

You can go there yourself and offer to plead to 20 over, and get only 4 points and $400 or you can hire an attorney to try and plea it down to 3 points with the same fine, or no points and the same fine. (or something in between).

I don't think Bethlehem will require you to come down if you have a lawyer even with the 90 MPH, nor do I think the judges give jail time for this speed there.

There is no pleading to the DA as Albany county doesn't do that for Bethlehem.

I once had the reverse (NY license MD ticket).

I was planning on going to court and at the last minute couldn't make it so I sent in a check in the mail. It didn't get there in time before the court case and when I was reported as a no show in MD court they sent NY a letter telling them to suspend my license. NY sent me a letter saying I need to show proof of payment within 10 days or my license will be suspended.

So in my case, I actually already pleaded guilty with an explanation, and sent them a letter with a sob story. They did not buy it and sent me a letter telling me to to pay up...

Anyone have experience/success disputing a charge thorugh the cc for a paid ticket?
Most courts will only take cc on a fine sheet and signed. I am not sure how disputing usually works however I would think that it would be hard to do when you signed your consent black on white.

With the NYC plead and pay website it may work, and you can hope that the DMV is too incompetent to follow up:) If you try it let us know how it works:)

On the second hand the court could come after you to suspend you for the unpaid fine, in which case they would notify you of the suspension and perhaps charge you an extra $70 for the suspension termination fee.

Guilty with an explanation is just another way to plead guilty although if your story is good enough the Judge may lower the fine somewhat. What did he charge you?


If you don't pay the State of NY will issue a suspension against you in NY and if you drive ever again in NY without paying you could be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.

NYS will also send a message to your state saying that you are a scoff law and that you should be suspended in your state. I don't know about your state in particular however a lot of the states will suspend you for a unanswered ticket from another state.

Title: NYC Parking Ticket - Wrong Address
Post by: Mendel on November 14, 2013, 11:00:21 PM
I got a ticket today at 12:09pm for alternate side parking during 12-1:30

Instead of putting "in front of 885 ****** St" they put "885 Troy Ave" which is in the 67th precinct (ticket says 71)  and I searched online, and that address has alternate side parking between 8 and 9:30.

Is this an automatic dismissal? How do I go about this?

The company you switch to will most likely factor the ticket into the rate they offer you.

The company you switch to will most likely factor the ticket into the rate they offer you.

The new company will factor in the ticket as well. If you are locked in to a rate for twelve months and the ticket "falls off" even two months in they will still charge you for the remaining amount of the term. The way to get out of that would by switching to a new company. They will not charge you once the ticket is 36 months old

"I can't say from personal experience, however, friend of mine said that the cop didn't let him get away when he got pulled over again while there was a ticket waiting in court, cause the cop was able to see it on the record."

Cops are allowed to see arrest records, which theoretically includes stops where the cop didn't issue a ticket altogether.
As far as insurance rates go it is illegal for a company to charge you more based on the allegation of a police officer which is not affirmed with a conviction in a court of law. So only if you are convicted can they charge you more.

As far as premiums go, see next post.

This is true, rates go as per the lock in date, and any new company will check your record before agreeing to issue you insurance, or give you a rate. They need to see how great of a risk you are.

However there are ways to play the insurance somewhat. If you hurry up and lock in a 12 month premium before the conviction hits the record in DMV you will have that rate for the 12 months, and at the end of the "ticket shelf life" you can go with a month to month premium, and take out your next 12 month premium after the conviction falls off so you don't have to needlessly pay the higher price any longer than necessary.

Another thing to keep in mind is that in NY convictions stay 3 years until January of the next year. So a conviction in December is 11 months better than a conviction in January. (I don't suppose Dan will post a deal "Plead guilty before January and get one year off your traffic ticket insurance premium increase"?).

For insurance purposes the ticket stay on the record 3 years from the date of conviction, no matter how many years that takes from the date of violation.

For DMV purposes they count from the date of violation retroactively no matter how long  the conviction takes. Therefor pushing tickets off does little good for you.

NJ state MVC does not record convictions of out of state drivers. They simply send notice to the state the driver is licensed in. NY does not record traffic ticket convictions from NY. Hence the insurance co can't see them. I would like for YSP to show me a case of NJ tickets showing up on a NY record. I personally paid NJ tickets and do not have any mark on my record.

NJ tickets are cheaper with the points then what they can be reduced to. Therefor if you go with a NJ lawyer if you are from NY you are getting doubly ripped off. Considering that an attorney is supposed to advice you according to your best interest I would call that a triple play.

ive used an ex-copper who is now a criminal lawyer who specializes in states of NY and NJ. notspeeding.com was easy to deal with and did a great job.

It should be not driving, because there is no way to assure that you will never get a ticket. You can get run into and get a ticket by the investigating cop.

As a matter of fact I saw a father get 5 tickets because his son drove his car and the cop wrote the tickets to the dad. You need to not have a name and date of birth to not  be at risk of getting a ticket!

I got the inspection done an hour later and passed. Any advice whether its worth going to court to see if they would give me a break? ( I live in NJ) TIA

In NY you just send in the paperwork and do a 'hearing by mail'.

They would plead it down if you go in.

In NY you just send in the paperwork and do a 'hearing by mail'.

You would lose that nyc hearing because an inspection is not a "fixable offense". The rational of a fixable offense is that you can claim that "it" your head light or break light broke after you started driving, or that you did not have a chance to fix it. An inspection of course does not have that rational.

94/65 was always 6 points. I don't understand what they are offering you which is 6 points and only $243, it does not make sense. Not to mention that you would need to pay an additional $300 anyway for the driver assessment fee. At speeds of 90+ you have to worry about the judge incarcerating you in over the weekend. In Elizabethtown you may be out of luck however you can still take advantage of "free consultations" and find out what they are really offering you and what the locals think they can get for you if they go to trial. My experience there is the locals don't offer much hope in the way of plea deals.

If you got 6 points then you will be charged the additional driver assessment fee of $300 by the state. The Court is not able to waive that fee. The Judge really charged you less than the max on the fine?! This is something I have got to see if you don't mind. You can summit it through my website (a link to which is under my name). My bet is that you are being mislead in more ways than one.

How long does it take for points to fall off you record with a NYS licence?

18 months from the date of offense for DMV persistent violation purposes. 3 years and then until January from the date of conviction for insurance purposes.

(Lets hope you never learn about the numbers below.
10 years for review for lifetime revocation after a suspension and 25 years for review if you every had a DWI. DMV holds onto the record forever and they can always decide to do something with it somewhere down the road.)

Yes Mr. Bostener, that is correct, and I would like to talk with anyone else who claims other than what I am saying here. I personally pulled a number of records on January 1st because that is when the points come off in NY. Guess what happened? those conviction dates of 2011 are the records that came off, not the violation dates from 2005 with convictions in 2013. This is one of the reasons people who "push off" tickets in the city for 3 years and then plead guilty are outright ripping everyone off.

Who are these industry people, and how can they be reached?

The insurance company pulls you driving abstract record which shows date of incident not date of conviction
Welcome ybarney and perhaps the insurance companies do pull the violation date, whoever after 3 years + January they can no longer pull it from anywhere.

It seems to me that there are many ppl who have no job etc that lurk all day giving tickets in the insanely low speed limits of 20 and 25. It is very difficult to drive @ 25 mph unless there's 6 inches of snow on ground...

the only cancellation I see is if they didnt start working on a ticket for you. otherwise you dont get your money back. please correct me if im wrong as i have a ticket i need taken care of and for $5, its well worth it.

I have been corrected. It is $65 for the year membership (unlimited tickets for one car). I have never used him myself. I still think it is cheap for those who live in the city.

so i got a cell phone ticket. I was NOT holding my phone at the time.  He pulled me over and didnt give me a chance to say anything. Just gave me the ticket and told me I have 15 days to respond.

I want to respond NOT GUILTY. How do I continue? Do i need to hire a lawyer to wipe off the points?

I have 2 questions on to separate tickets.
1) I got a ticket I while back I pleaded not guilty through a hearing by mail. I was found guilty and they added on a 10 penalty bec they received it after 30 days (I have a receipt from the post office showing that I mailed it on time). I appealed the ticket and I received a rejection letter dated on 01/24/14 stating that I submitted my appeal later than 30 days after the judges ruling which was on 12/30/13. what do I from here they clearly made a mistake as the date on the rejection letter is less than 30 days after the ruling forget about when I mailed which was on the 11.

2)I got an alternate side ticket and the cop wrote the wrong color of the car how can I se that to fight the ticket. do I simply say I was not parked there as you can see the color of the car is wrong, if not then what.
Thanks in advance

5 Points. You can plead not guilty on line https://transact.dmv.ny.gov/pleadnpay/ and you can conduct the trial by yourself or hire an attorney to go for you.

I'm not sure about Lakewood but in some areas all they need is your money, so if you go to court to fight it they'll gladly convert it into a parking ticket and just let you pay the fine,
Again, I'm x sure if that's the case with Lakewood.

Got a ticket in NYC (with a NY license) for not signaling a right turn. The actual turn is about a 45 degree angle. (ocean parkway turning on to bay Pkwy) I'm looking for the best way to fight the ticket. I got to choices .
1- The GPS says keep right. Though not sure if obligated to signal for that. (Even though I did not have a GPS in my car at the time.)
2- a famous one. U cross examine the cop if he saw my blinker the whole time and if he says yes u tell him u hand signaled !
 Any insights/ experience ??

"Careless" is not "Reckless". I hear that they do plea down in NJ however they make you go yourself even if you get an attorney. Being that "Careless" is a "small" ticket you can try to plea it down to a more expensive 0 point violation. If you don't like the offer you can always come back with a lawyer. Good luck

2 point turn violation? Ask your insurance company how much your insurance would go up if you were convicted and then decide if you want to conduct your own defense.

Ask the cop if he checked to see that your signal was working. If he did not then you are not in violation of not using your turn signal. This is assuming that he gave you the regular NYS VTL code and not come city code.

You shouldn't be looking at your GPS anyways...

Mr Bostener I don't know what is bothering your feathers. The guy is not asking what will happen if he shows up himself in Court and asks a Judge to push it off. He is asking if he can call or write a letter or push it off online and the answer is no.

Mr YSP sounds correct. As long as you don't get into an accident with a car under the policy you are trying to avoid you should be fine.

If you go to trial you can ask him if he check, and he should be able to say yes. However it would be another thing to catch him on.

New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law (Codes) are the rules of the road. New York City has some of it's own laws and they work differently.

Even if your gps told you to stay in your lane, that does not free you from the obligation to use your discretion in signaling, obeying signs ex.

As for option 2 he should testify that he saw that you did not signal which includes hand and blinker. I surly hope he can see both at the same time;)

Insurance coverage goes by the car, and as long as the car is not stolen (and even sometimes if it is stolen) the insurance co will pay. Payment for insurance goes by household, and I have never heard of "retroactive" payment after a crash however they may start to "put more people on the policy" aka charge more for the household and they may even decide they don't want to cover you anymore if they think they can't trust your statement of "who and who" will be driving the car.

She pushed it off a zillion times. I got a letter recently that the ticket was dismissed. The ticket was from Aug '10, it was dismissed Jan '14.

I got a ticket on the Belt a while back, it was for 30+ over, which is 8 points. I had 3 points already, so I couldn't risk anything. I gave the ticket to Terri Kalker in KGH. She pushed it off a zillion times. I got a letter recently that the ticket was dismissed. The ticket was from Aug '10, it was dismissed Jan '14. Best ~$300 (don't remember exactly how much it was) I ever spent.  ;D

Incorrect. It was much more than 3 times. I know because I got a letter from the DMV each time. There is no way I would have gotten off on this ticket without her.

I don't remember, but it was most likely highway patrol. This was early morning on a Sunday, not too many cars on the highway, every single one of them well over the 55mph limit. Normally they ask you, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" etc. This guy was all business. License and registration. Went right back to his car. Quickest ticket I've ever gotten, took like 3 minutes. He finishes with me, pulls back into his hiding spot, and by the time I pull out I see he's already pulling over another car.

Not exactly.

First of all they only give you 1-3 options online as to when you can schedule. When you go down in person they offer you more options and they also will take into consideration if you have a valid excuse as to why you are not available on the dates they are offering you. Lawyers generally have better working excuses such as being scheduled for another court on the date requested and can provide paperwork to back it up.

In addition every judge has a magic number of adjournments until they suspend your driver's license pending your availability. If the attorney keeps creating excuses as to why they can't appear it is harder for the Judge to suspend the motorist's license due to the attorney's shenanigans.

The end goal is not the pushing off, it's getting it dismissed, which it sounds like you have not yet done.

Additionally, the lawyers already know all the cops, judges, and anything else involved. They are much better equipped to make smart decisions about when to reschedule, etc. Also, the more times you end up having to go in, the more it becomes worth paying the lawyer. The amount of my time and effort it would have taken to even come close to accomplishing what my lawyer accomplished is worth a whole lot more than the $300+ I spent.

By phone is almost impossible.  I have no problem using the system, start to finish.
If you want to call internet support they are one of the only departments in DMV that you actually get a hold of.

What is the error you are seeing? It could be that the ticket isn't entered into the system yet.

Just got a photo enforced ticket from Paradise Valley Arizona for 52 in 40. The ticket has a picture of me as the driver.
Doesn't show my license number on the ticket, but I wonder if they got it from the rental agency.
Any idea if they give points for this? And would they transfer to NJ? The ticket is for $238.
I was under the impression that with speed cam tickets there are no points. But this looks like a regular ticket.
They give me 4 options
A. pay
B. Identify the driver (not really an option because they have s nice clear picture of me.
C. request trial/hearing by mail
D. Attend defensive driving school.

On option D, does anyone know the process of trading the course? Price? Any reason not to take it?
Thanks

Everyone just be careful out in Arizona, this is a ridiculous ticket for a camera. I was under the impression that soured camera tickets are a set fee....

Ok need some opinions. My wife got into a small accident last week so my car was in the shop and we got a rental. Yesterday I was driving the rental and going over the Whitestone Bridge. I automatically went into the EZpass lane forgetting i ddidnt have my ezpass in the car. i pull up to the barrier and there is a cop in the booth right next to me and I say excuse me officer I forgot I was in a rental  and dont have my ezpass with me. he aska for my license and i give it to him he then asks for the cars registration. I couldnt hear what he said and he asks again but I still couldnt hear him. He then starts yelling at me to give him the registration. Of course the registration on the rental car is expired. The cop who is being an Ahole the whole time writes me up for two tickets. One for the expired registration and one for not obeying posted signs by going into an ezpass lane without an ezpass. The first one no big deal just a fine i will make enterprise pay. The second one though is a moving violation with two points!!!!!! for being in a freaking ezpass lane without an ezpass.

What is my best bet to fight the second ticket. Should I hire a lawyer or just fight it on my own?

The problem with representing yourself in Trial is that even if you do present a valid argument (such as you had easy pass, but you just didn't have it with you in the car) the "ALJ" is less afraid of being over turned in appeal, or being reported to the chief justice for ignoring the facts and or law.

Enter in all your information. If you are guilty it will show you a fine amount. If it never went to trial it will show you a date. If it was dismissed it will tell you that the ticket is not accurate.

You can definitely call, or email or mail or fax your attorney to ask him what happened or what will happen, however I can tell you it isn't an attorney favorite question. (are we there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet?);)

I understand that, but what about if you pushed off the court day - say 2 years and counting - and if guilty, how does the insurance co view it after that.
Title: Re: Traffic Tickets
Post by: DK23 on April 02, 2014, 12:02:49 PM
Anytime a moving violation is convicted it is possible, but not definite, that the insurance co will give you an increase.  Varies by company but I don't have any more color on which companies are harder/more forgiving on violations.

He will testify that the posted speed was 15 and where such notice was posted. You may bring any evidence you wish to prove that the limit was 30. Whoever the judge finds right is right, the reality is irrelevant.

He came out and asked "why are you blocking the intersection?" to which I responded "I'm in the intersection because I was blocking traffic. Now I'm in the intersection but not blocking. The car behind me is blocking."
He pulled me and the car behind me over and gave us both a criminal court summons. On my summons it says offence "discon blocking ped traffic" and he even wrote that my defense was that "the car behind me was"!

A violation and not a misdemeanor however it still goes on your criminal record and carries jail time. Do both of us a favor and don't fight it yourself. You can get a cheap attorney who can plead it down.

I went to court and he told me to pay a $50 fine and that's it. He said if I want to argue I should come back for trial. I asked if it will go on any record and he said no so I just paid the $50 and the heck with it.

2) seat belt back seat child
3) cell phone
For which of these do I get points?

I'm not saying it should be legal, I'm just saying 5 points is excessive. Here are the only other violations that get you at least 5 points:

21 mph over the speed limit and up
Reckless driving

IMHO anything involving distracted driving e.g. talking on the phone (I don't know about anyone else, but every time i'm on the highway whenever there is some else veering into my lane and I have to honk, invariably they are on the phone) texting should be a MINIMUM of 5 points probably a suspension. When one is speeding, at least if they have their attention on the road and are in the left lane, what is the big deal ? It should just be a fine !!!

Texting is no doubt the worst of the bunch, but I was talking more about talking on the phone. The ticket lumps them together if I'm not mistaken, which probably makes sense from a practical enforcement standpoint, but less so from a 'fairness' standpoint.

True and not true, because while there is no doubt that texting is worse, the phone is within they same category of not paying attention to the road, and that is when the accidents happen. Plus there is no reason why one wouldn't be using a bluetooth or similar device which is such an easy fix.

You're not getting a ticket for not paying attention to the road, the ticket is for talking on your cell phone, and you can get one even if you are absolutely paying attention to the road. Say I place a call at a red light and now I'm driving along with one hand on the wheel and one hand holding my phone to my ear. How is that any different from driving a manual transmission car (ie only one hand on the wheel), while talking to a passenger in the car? You're definitely more likely to be distracted at some point in the process, but it can be done with less distraction than other non-ticketed activities.

I don't want you to get the wrong idea, when I drive I use the bluetooth in my car, and I certainly don't text. But if I didn't have built-in bluetooth, I'd be much less likely to connect to an earpiece (especially on short rides), and probably pick up a call.

FL will consider it a 3 point careless driving ticket if it is reported to them. Technically NYS DMV should not report  this violation out of state pursuant to the rules of the commissioner 512. What they (DMV) are actually doing is another question.

I am going to didto skyguy918 and add to his point. Currently the NYPD is giving out texting tickets even if you are using a blue tooth because technically the phone is a portable hand held electronic device. So even though the blue tooth is supposed to be be an exception, good luck fighting to keep it in place.

If you are stopped at a red light, and you answer a phone call and even put the call on speaker that is a 5 point violation and if you are a new driver you can get suspended for a year.

While I also think people zig zagging across the high way at 65 MPH which skyping should be shot, the laws were written to blanket anyone checking their wrist watch for the time, anyone changing their axillary radio volume of channel, people stopped at a 5 minute red light, people talking on speaker phone with the phone in their shirt pocket, people who can drive safely which talking with the phone next to their ear, and taxi drivers responding on their radio.

I think that due to the public outcry against the texting accidents we have overshot the mark into this endlessly ticket blitz largely supported by the state revenue intake.

Adult seatbelt tickets go on your license however they don't carry points. DWIs don't have points either, however don't get any. As for the letter telling you that you would be suspended today, you can go down to a office and get the suspension lifted for $40 and $70 suspension termination fee.

The ticket not showing up after you got letters telling you that you will be suspended is weird. Perhaps you are putting in the info wrong?

Good luck

From the date of the violation, but points don't go onto your record until the court convicts you, so if you get a ticket that could potentially cause a license suspension you can push off the court date until after the 18 months have passed from the first ticket.

MC you are right about the date of violation however you are incorrect about pushing off working in this context. Also for insurance purposes the points go on your license for 4 years starting for the date of conviction. In addition the defensive driving program does not actually take off points in NYS in terms of the driver responsibility assessment and in other ways as well.

In NYS when does the 18 month off your abstract start from the ticket date or court date?

The first ticket is invalid however how can you prove which day it was? Can you prove that you were elsewhere at that time?
As for the second ticket, there is an assumption that you are using the phone when it is in your hand, and you need to indicate that you were using it for a valid reason. That reason is to talk on the phone using a blue tooth. You need to document you having blue tooth and that you were calling, not texting.
Good luck doing your own trial!

The NYS DDC does not remove points, it extends your limit from 11 to 14. In addition, I do not believe that any state will count another's ddc to remove more points than the accepted 4.

Even if you change your license to NY, NJ will still hold on to the suspensions which they imposed on you.

What you may want to do is move to NY and get a NYS driver's license (after un-suspending your NJ license) and NY will not consider your NJ points. Good luck.

Your insurance co. would know about the old record. Perhaps if you changed licenses and waited for a number of months and then switched companies and hope that the next co. doesn't pull up your old NJ record.

You still need to find out if Illinois counts NYS tickets, look for an Illinois traffic attorney.
Good luck

The 1k option is not a legal one, so make sure the guy and his route actually get the job down and that you are not the one getting ripped off.

As for your speeding ticket you will need to pay an addition $300 if you are convicted of the full 22 MPH. If the peed gets pulled down 2 MPH during the trial and you are convicted of 20 MPH you save 2 points in NY and $300 to the state of New York.

I hear that NJ will count the speed as a 2 point out of state conviction.

Well if you are going to plea guilty you may be saving $50 right there on the driver assessment fee not to mention the 2 points in NY. In addition if you end up wining in trial you saved the whole deal.

(I honestly didn't realize you needed both, i thought if you had either one you were good. Plus i was trying to make my flight in LGA, so being in this lane was a complete accident as LGA is the other way, i am not from NY)

The insurance ticket could either be a no effect NYC law for "not showing your insurance proof" with a $100 fine or so, or it can be a $1500 fine and one year revocation of your license for "not having insurance". So it depends on that one:)
As for the EZpass traffic control device, either go down to the trial yourself, hire a lawyer to go for you or pay it. Odds of winning yourself 20/80 odds with an attorney 50/50.

If you have a CDL that means that NYS has a record for you and the federal government has a registry for you as well. The feds record everything (someone enlighten me otherwise please).

You need to fight/reduce this. It could kill some job opportunities for a very long time. Either go down there yourself and try to get a non moving violation or try contacting a NJ traffic attorney. Good luck!

Plead not guilty and trade your guilty plea of a parking ticket in so that they don;t have to drag you into a trial.

The date of your license is not enough to get it dismissed.

As far as holding a phone goes, you are allowed to hold the phone however there is a statutory assumption that if you are holding it, you are using it. That assumption is rebuttable should you find a way to show that you were not using your phone.

"New York prohibits all drivers from using portable electronic devices.

Illegal activity includes holding a portable electronic device and:

Talking on a handheld mobile telephone
Composing, sending, reading, accessing, browsing, transmitting, saving, or retrieving electronic data such as e-mail, text messages, or webpages
Viewing, taking, or transmitting images
Playing games

The law defines the following terms as:

(a) "Portable electronic device" shall mean any hand-held mobile telephone, as defined by subdivision one of section twelve hundred twenty-five-c of this article, personal digital assistant (PDA), handheld device with mobile data access, laptop computer, pager, broadband personal communication device, two-way messaging device, electronic game, or portable computing device.

(b) "Using" shall mean holding a portable electronic device while viewing, taking or transmitting images, playing games, or composing, sending, reading, viewing, accessing, browsing, transmitting, saving or retrieving e-mail, text messages, or other electronic data."[/b]

You need to plea not guilty first. There is a Court date recorded on that ticket and if you don't plead not guilty/guilty by that date and you don't show that little NJ courts issues a warrant. Plead guilty and pay it.

$142 and up

Eta: it's more (and a point) if you are the driver and kids under 6 aren't wearing their seatbelts in the car.

If the vehicle was on and the zone was no parking, not no standing, then you are correct. Where is there a no parking zone near Walmart?
This will not effect your record, and you can plea down the fine.

Is there any way to get it lower? I'm not so worried about the points since I have an out of state license where they don't have a point system (I'm not sure which system they do use).

I think my only interest here is to pay less, (and have a cleaner record if it's not to difficult).

What state license do you have?

Bec I believe every state besides NY up to 2 points do transfer when getting a ticket in a different state.

If you don't want the points you may plead not guilty and go down to court and try fighting it, many times they'll take off the points but will make it more money.

Check with a lawyer (or Google) but AFAIK, as long as you can prove that he's just visiting (find out exactly what that is for your state) you should be able to fight it in court.

Disclaimer: I have no experience with such tickets, just random information I picked up from taking to people extensively about foreign license.

Your total fines will be at around $700 unless you plead it down. That is aside from the 6 points out of 11 which NY creates in their records. I assure you that the guy who said $200 is wrong.

3 points, and if you plead not guilty and go in to plead it down yourself you will probably walk away with a parking ticket worth $100 or so. If your ticket is assigned to the Monroe Town court you are able to hire an attorney to appear for you however if you need to go to the Monroe Village court you will need to appear yourself unless you live out of state.
Good luck.

Thanks for your response.
It was from A NYS Trooper, not a local village cop, and the court is on Lake Street, so I believe that its Town Court.
Is that better or worse?
Do you believe that I will be able to plead it down to a parking even though I don't have a clean license/driving record ?

State troopers can't plea bargain, therefor you will be talking with the town/village prosecutor. Even with a bad record they should offer you something for this 3 point stop sign. If they are still offering you points you can always reject the offer and come back with an attorney.

Being that you postponed it during these last 2 years it is not considered scheduled too late. If they would have postponed it themselves for over 2 years you may have an argument.

They remove the total amount of points however the record of violation remains. Go to the MVC and see what her record looks like.
I just saw a NJ driving record 2 pages long with a total of 0 points because of the many courses however all the violations are still there. The DA was not willing to offer this guy anything.

You are looking at 8 NYS points, and if you can cast uncertainty in 1 MPH you save yourself 2 point and part of the fine right there. Take it to trial yourself or hire someone to go to trial for you and hope that you get the whole thing dismissed.

Of course it's better than losing all of them. There were times I won with not having any good excuse like after two months after hurricane sandy I completely forgot about my inspection and got I ticket. I fought it with some lame excuse, don't remember what, but it was dismissed because NYS was being lenient in inspection tickets in the face of hurricane Sandy.
