Hi! I was driving on the conduit in queens on a 25 mph doing 48 mph, what should I do about the ticket.

    You should plead not guilty. This is the only way to possibly avoid the points and fine.

    P Tsering,

    My advice is to plead not guilty. This is the only way to possible save the points and money associated with this speeding ticket.

Hi I got a ticket going 43 mph in a 25mph zone. How many points will be taken off and my insurance rate will go up? Should I plead guilty or not? Thanks

    A 43/25 speeding ticket carries 4 points and, alone, can adversely affect your insurance rates. You should therefore plead not guilty as this is the only way to possibly obtain a favorable outcome.

Hello I live in NJ and I have a CDL A. This afternoon I got a tickect for speeding, driving 46 mph in a 25mph zone. This occurs in the river side of manhattan, I asked the police If that gives points to my license, and he said ” no don’t worry just pay he ticket before the two weeks” it’s this true?

    Matthew Weiss - October 19, 2016 9:25 pm


    No, its not true. If you are convicted of this charge, your will get 6 NY points and 2 NJ points.
    My advice would be to fight this case.

Hey I was on the i90 and I passed a officer and got a ticket for going 67 in a 55. The officer measured my speed by the fact that I passed him no radar was used. What should I do.

    Matthew Weiss - October 17, 2016 4:37 pm


    In NY, a visual estimate can be sufficient evidence of speeding. In other worlds, a police officer does not need to use a radar or laser device. With that said, cases where the officer solely relies on a visual estimate are somewhat easier to fight than ones backed up by a speeding measure device.

Today I got a ticket on i90 for driving 78 in 65 and it’s my first ticket I just have permit but when office follow me my wife is with me which she have driving licence so what to do either I have to put guilty or not guilty how to save money and point

    You should plead not guilty. This is the only way to obtain a more favorable result and being found guilty of this charge is serious given that you were apparently driving with only a permit.

I got a speeding ticket going 98 on a 55 in the I-80 in New Jersey, this is not right since I had my cruise control on and I was following another driver who also had his cruise control on set to 65. officer told us that he clocked both of us going 98 which I doubt is possible.

    We do not handle NJ tickets. With that said, we recommend that you plead not guilty as this is the only way to possibly obtain a more favorable outcome. Given that high speed alleged of 98 MPH, you should also consult with (if not hire) a NJ traffic lawyer to help you.

I live in NY City. I got a ticket for driving 83 in 55 speed limit on taconic state parkway. Officer told me i don’t have to show up at the court. Just mail it them writing i’m guilty or not.
Its my very first ticket under my license. My question: what is gonna happen after sending it saying i’m not guilty? Do I have to go court? will they deduct my point?
How do keep my points? I heard about defensive driving course is restore upto 4 points. Is it right? If right when do i will do defensive driving course?
thank you?

    Matthew Weiss - September 26, 2016 10:17 pm


    If you plead not guilty, then you or your NY traffic lawyer will have to appear in court. This is the only way to possibly save points and money.
