Speeding tickets in New York are most likely the traffic ticket we get the most questions about. NY speeding ticket points go from three to eleven (enough for a suspension from a single speeding ticket) depending on how much over the limit you were driving. Speeding tickets are bad for your driving record and certainly not good for your automobile insurance.
Motorists who have been given a speeding ticket will usually claim one of the following:
I wasn’t driving as fast as the officer said I was
I was driving above the speed limit but I have a good reason
I was just keeping up with traffic
I was speeding and I simply got caught
As NY speeding ticket lawyers, our strategy usually does not depend on which category applies to our client. The issuing officer is expected to offer the same testimony regardless of the category in question. In the officer’s opinion, you were speeding, it wasn’t justified and it doesn’t matter how fast anyone else on the road was driving. If you have reasons you feel you were not guilty, don’t expect the officer to concur (he wouldn’t have issued the ticket if that was the case).
In some cases, it is conceivable for an individual to have a defense or justification for speeding that couldn’t be explained to the officer (or the officer simply wouldn’t accept) during the car stop. Of course, we’ll be happy to discuss any potential defense or justification in your case.
That said, we make sure you understand that offering a defense or justification is a strategy that must be considered carefully. It’s basically an admission as far as the speed in question. If the judge doesn’t agree with or believe the defense or justification, you’ve admitted to speeding and the judge doesn’t think you had a good reason for driving too fast.
