Whether it’s a speeding ticket or going through a red light, all of the different Counties and Boroughs in New York City including, New York County (Manhattan), Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island (Richmond County), Queens, Nassau County and Suffolk County have different courts, locations and procedures in terms of how they handle traffic tickets.
The people involved are a Judge, the Police, the defendant and the Traffic Ticket Lawyer. Therefore the only options are to plead guilty or have a trial. There is no substitution for an experienced Speeding Ticket Lawyer who can question the Police Officer about how he gauges the speed when its radar visual or whether or not he docked the defendant (looked up New York speeding ticket points). Assuming there are no witnesses, it is your creditability against the Police Officer. That is why the questioning of the Officer is so important. If you can establish some inconsistencies or defects in the Officer’s testimony, you have a chance to win a Speeding Ticket. Fighting Speeding Tickets is particularly important as the insurance companies raise many people’s rates after a Speeding Ticket conviction.
