Traffic ticket fines vary from court to court. For example, the surcharge structure is different in City Courts then it is in the Irvington Village Court and other town and village courts in New York State. In addition, points vary from charge to charge. A 10 MPH over the limit speed has less points than a 30 MPH over the limit speed. However, it does not matter what you were charged with it only matters what you are convicted of/. While fines are imposed by the Irvington Village Court Judge, points and surcharges are imposed by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicle and are triggered by the conviction you receive in court. That is why it is so important to fight your speeding ticket.
If you are thinking of fighting your speeding ticket, it is important that the first thing you do is call us. Do not even send your ticket in with a “Not Guilty” plea without first consulting with us. You can beat a speeding ticket, as the burden of proof is on the state not you. In addition, there are alternate dispute resolutions such as diversion programs and plea bargaining.
Moving violation costs are always more expensive when you do not fight them. This is because a conviction triggers points, insurance increases, often times more fines from the DMV, and sometimes even license suspensions. In fact, driving privileges can be suspended or revoked for over 100 reasons, many of which have no relationship with driving. Things such as failing to pay New York State taxes, child support, and unpaid civil judgment related to an auto accident are a few of the common ones.
