Fight Your Ticket And Save Money
If you were issued a speeding ticket returnable to Indian Lake Traffic Court, you are not alone.  Many drivers are issued a hefty speeding ticket along the bucolic roads and highways of Indian Lake.  However, less than 1% of all drivers ticketed will every fight their case with an experienced traffic ticket attorney.   This mistake could cost a driver hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars in fines, penalties, insurance increases, and lost time.

I Have Questions

Fighting a pro-se ticket in Indian Lake can pose many challenges to drivers.  The initial ticket provides drivers with more questions than answers.  In particular, nowhere on the ticket does it state how many points a driver is facing and how much is the fine.

How Many Points Am I Facing?

Speeding tickets can range from a three-point violation to an eleven-point violation.  The number of points assessed against a license depends on the mile per hour above the speed limit.

This chart will help you determine the number of points you are facing.

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

How Much Is My Fine?

The judge sets the fine for a speeding ticket.  The judge is allowed to take many factors under consideration including but not limited a driver’s abstract, the recommendation of the prosecutor, and the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the ticket.

The New York Legislature set parameters for sentencing and created a ceiling and ground floor for the fines.

If a driver is a repeat offender, the court can impose an increased fine.

For first time offenders facing a VTL 1180(b) or a VTL 1180(d), the fine can be as high as $300.00 or $600.00.  In addition, New York State will impose a mandatory surcharge.  The surcharge is additional monies that will be paid directly to the State.  The fines can be doubled for work zone violations.
