Considerations for challenging a speeding ticket in New York

The practice of issuing speeding tickets in New York likely dates back to the widespread introduction of the automobile on the streets of this state. With so much time having passed since then, a wide range of effective and ineffective defenses have been raised by drivers in efforts to defeat those tickets. Here is a brief examination of some things you might consider if you have received a speeding ticket.

Traffic cameras become main NYC tool to issue traffic tickets

Routine police stops for traffic violations in New York can often result in serious consequences for the driver, including significant fines from traffic tickets, increased insurance premiums, loss of driving privileges and even jail time.

Traffic Violations Bureau Traffic Ticket

If you ever received a traffic ticket in New York City, i.e. one of the five boroughs of New York (the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island) you will soon find out that there is no plea bargaining allowed on a Traffic Violations Bureau Traffic Ticket. Your only recourse is to appear in trial and the NYS DMV ALJ (Administrative Law Judge) decides on the issue of guilt or innocence and assesses a fine or dismisses the ticket on the spot. One of the reasons there is no option of plea bargaining is because ALJs do not have the authority to adjudicate plea deals.

Allegany County Traffic Diversion Program

One of the ways in which the Allegany County Traffic Diversion Program is different than programs in most other New York Countys is that they allow speeds up to 30 MPH over the posted limit to enter, however everyone entering is subject is "discretion".This is quite different from most other counties such as Broome County  for example in which there is a 25 MPH cap and a strict policy of a clean 18 month period ex. however if you fall into the guidelines the DA's office won't start looking at the defendant's age or if the was defendant was polite to the officer.
