Challenging Speeding Tickets
If you have received a citation for driving over the speed limit, it can be tempting to simply pay the fine and move on with your life. However, when you pay off a speeding ticket it is similar to pleading guilty to a criminal charge. Although a speeding ticket will not result in a permanent criminal record, it does count against your driving record, and too many tickets in a set period of time can result in you losing your driver’s license. That is why it is important to challenge a traffic citation with the help of an experienced lawyer.

Is It Really Worth It To Fight A Ticket?
New York assigns a certain number of points to each speeding ticket. The faster you are accused of going, the more points you will receive. If you accumulate too many points on your driving record, your license will be suspended, and these points can add up much faster than you may think. In addition, speeding violations can cause a significant increase in your car insurance costs.
With so much at stake, it is worth your time to fight a speeding ticket. This is especially true if your driving makes up all or even part of your income. I can help challenge the circumstances surrounding your stop, and will do everything I can to get your ticket dismissed or reduced to a penalty that will have less of an impact.
