If you are reading this blog post, there is a good chance that you received a speeding ticket while driving along I-90 and your case is pending in Stafford Town Court.
It is unfortunate that you are in this predicament but luckily this speeding ticket law firm can help limit your exposure to expensive fines, penalties, points, and insurance increases.
Did you know that pleading guilty to 86 mph in a 65 mph zone is a 6 point violation? The presiding judge can issue a fine close to $400.00 and you can be hit with an additional $300.00 penalty by the Department of Motor Vehicles. All of this may seem small compared to the aggravation of going to court and paying an annual insurance increase.

Stafford Town Court is located at 8903 Route 237 in Stafford, New York. Its postal zip code is 14143. It is part of New York’s 7th Judicial District. Although this is a part time court, it maintains a full time court staff. It has jurisdiction over both civil and criminal matters.
As lower level court, it does not have unlimited jurisdiction. Most civil cases have fewer than $3,000.00 in controversy and most criminal cases are misdemeanors.
The majority of cases heard in this court are traffic tickets. Traffic tickets can range from an uninspected vehicle ticket to a moving violation such as a speeding ticket or cell phone violation.
The majority of tickets are resolved prior to trial. Drivers are given an opportunity to appear in court and discuss their tickets with the prosecutor. If an amicable resolution cannot be reached, then the case may be adjourned for trial.
At trial, the court will be the trier of fact and determine guilt or innocence. Once the court gives its decision, the court will have many sentencing options avaible. Some sentences may include a fine or incarceration.
The majority of speeding tickets issued in Genesee County are written by Troop T. There are other police agencies that share jurisdictional power to issue tickets. Some agencies include the County Sheriff, Town Police, and State Park Police.
Two Step Verification
Most speeding tickets are confirmed by two forms of verification. Many State Police officers will verify a speeding ticket by laser. Some other police agencies may verify a speed by radar. In additional to either laser or radar, a speed is also confirmed by visual estimation.
