|FIGHT YOUR TICKET AND SAVE MONEY|
There are thousands of miles of roadways in New York. Some roads are local and others are major interstate highways. No matter what road you are on, getting a ticket within the jurisdictional grounds of Greene Village Court can ruin your day. Everyone knows a conviction can result in hundreds of dollars in fines, wasted time and dreaded insurance increases. In some of the most serious cases, a driver’s privilege to drive can be suspended or worse – a driver can be sentenced to a term of incarceration.
Washington Street is a popular roadway that runs the Village of Greene. It maintains a 30 mph speed limit and is patrolled by GPD. While on this stretch of bucolic roadway, it is easy for drivers to become distracted by the beautiful scenery and exceed the speed limit by more than 21 mph.
A speeding conviction to 51/30 (21 mph over the speed limit) is a 6-point violation. A conviction to this charge could result in a fine payable to the court of almost $400.00, an additional fine of $300.00 payable to the department of motor vehicles, and insurance increase. In certain situations, an insurance company may drop a driver as a client creating further headaches and complications.

Will a defensive driving course remove the points on my license?
A defensive driving course certified by the State of New York can remove up to 4 points on a driver’s license. The course will not seal the record; it will simply reduce the number of points on a driver’s license. In other words, a conviction resulting in points can still be visible on a driver’s abstract however, the points will not be held against the driver for the purpose of losing their privilege to drive.
How many points can a driver be assessed before their license is taken away?
There are many circumstances for which a driver can lose their privilege to drive. One of the most common reasons is that a driver has accumulated 11 or more points in an 18 month period.
Does your law firm need my driving history to defend me?
Under most circumstances, a prosecutor will take a driver’s driving history under consideration. A driving record with prior convictions will not be rewarded. A prior conviction will usually result in a harsher penalty than a driver with a clean driver’s abstract.
There are many other factors to take under consideration when fighting a traffic ticket. For more information, read our blog and contact our lawyers to learn how we can help you fight your ticket.
