NY Speeding Ticket Lawyer
Many drivers underestimate the serious consequences of paying a traffic ticket. Paying the ticket means admitting guilt and accepting the consequences. This can lead to heavy fines, surcharges, an increase in auto insurance rates, points on your license, a suspended license, and even jail time if you convicted of additional charges like an AUO.
Major roadways cross through the New York Capital District area such as I-87 (New York State Thruway & Adirondack Northway), NY 787, NY I-90 and others.

How Can An Attorney Help You?
Many drivers believe that if they try to fight a ticket on their own that they will have a successful result. More often that not, this is not the case. Without a lawyer, you’ll have to face a prosecutor whose primary job is to get convictions. Prosecutors and judges are experts in asking questions in a way that can elicit responses that may not bode well for your case.
Although some believe that hiring an attorney for traffic violations is overkill and not worth the extra expense it can actually save you money in the long run. Hiring an experienced traffic ticket lawyer, your odds of having a favorable outcome for your ticket are far greater. A plea bargain or dismal not only means that the monetary value of your fine will be smaller, but you will also save money by preventing increases in insurance premiums. Moving violations can also impact your ability to perform certain jobs. For example, if you have three or more moving violations in three years you cannot drive for Uber or Lyft.

New York Speeding Tickets For Out-of-State Drivers
Massachusetts – If you commit a traffic violation in New York that is recognized in Massachusetts, in most circumstances, Massachusetts will put the equivalent amount of points on your MA license.
Vermont – New York and Vermont have signed what is known as a Driver’s License Compact. This means that NY and VT freely share driver information with one another. If you receive a NY traffic ticket but are a VT driver, VT will be notified about the ticket you received. Fortunately for Vermont drivers, the state of Vermont does not add points onto your driver’s license for an out-of-state violation unless the violation would have resulted in a suspension of your license in another state.
Ontario, Canada – The province of Ontario has reciprocity with New York State. According to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, demerit points will be assessed against you for any traffic violation that you commit in NY.
Quebec, Canada – The Société de l’assurance automobile du Quebec has stated made that an equivalent offense committed in another province or in an US state that Quebec has a reciprocal agreement with, like New York, will result in demerit points being put on your driving record as if the offense occurred in Quebec itself.
It’s important to note that in most cases when you hire a lawyer to represent you in traffic court, you do not need to be present in court yourself. This can save out of state drivers time and money.
