Guide to Fighting Your Ticket

Sending in Your Plea: The most important thing to do after receiving your ticket is answering it. If you fail to send in your plea, your license could get suspended. You have the option to plead guilty or not guilty. 

Pleading Guilty: If you chose to plead guilty, please keep in mind that it is equivalent to a conviction after a trail. There are many financial costs that could accumulate if your chose to plead guilty, such as fines and fees to the DMV and the court, and insurance increases. 

Once you plead guilty, the court will send you a fine notice. This fine should be paid in full before its due date. Failure to do so can result to your license getting suspended. 

Pleading Not Guilty: If you chose to plead not guilty, follow the instructions provided on your ticket. Once the court receives your plea, you will be given a court date. At this court date you can present your case's strengths and weaknesses.

Attire: While there is no official dress code, we highly recommend that all litigants go to court in a formal attire. Many judges frown upon individuals who come to court in tank tops, shorts, open-toed sandals, or other similar items. It is important to present yourself in a respectful manner. 

Tip:  One of the worst things you could do is ignore your ticket. Please make sure you answer your ticket in a timely fashion.

What to Bring: We recommend that you bring your court notice, and your driving record with you. The court notice will help a court personnel direct you to where you need to go and what you need to do. While your driving record could be a persuading factor in mitigating your case, if the record is clean. 

In addition, it is important to bring enough money to pay any court fines that may arise if your case is settled at this court appearance. 

How Many Points Will I Face? 

In New York State there is no such thing as a 1-point violation; therefore violations can result in 2 or more points. If you have a speeding ticket, your points will range from 3-11 points, for more detail take a look at the following chart: 

01 to 10 mph over the limit
11 to 20
21 to 30
31 to 40
More than 40

Important: If you have accumulated 11 or more points on your license, your license will get suspended. Please note that driving with a suspended license is a crime, and if you are pulled over the officer can impound your car and arrest you on the spot.
