Save Money

Everyone knows that pleading guilty to a speeding ticket will cost a ton of money.   A conviction to 86 mph in a 55 mph zone could cost almost $700.00 in fines and surcharges payable to the court.  It can also result in 8 points on a driver’s license and thousands more in insurance increases.

Upside to Retaining Counsel

Our Chautauqua County ticket lawyers have successfully helped many drivers limit their exposure to fines, penalties, and points in Sheridan Town Court, Brocton Town Court, Ellicott Town Court, Portland Town Court, Pomfret Town Court and many other courts in the County.

Our lawyers are reasonably priced and we can appear in court with out you.  In other words, if we hired on a standard speeding ticket, you will not have to appear in court.

Burden of Proof

In the local courts of New York, the prosecution must prove all of the elements of a speeding ticket with proof beyond a reasonable doubt.  This is the highest legal burden in America.  It is the same standard by which criminal cases are prosecuted.

Elements of a Speeding Ticket

The majority of speeding tickets are written under VTL 1180 (b) or VTL 1180 (d).  They are:

(b) Except as provided in subdivision (g) of this section and  except   when  a  special  hazard exists that requires lower speed for compliance with subdivision (a) of this section or when maximum speed  limits have been  established as hereinafter  authorized,  no person shall drive a vehicle at a speed in excess of fifty-five miles per hour.

(d) 1. Except as provided in subdivision (g) of this section, whenever maximum speed  limits,  other  than  school  speed  limits,  have  been   established  as  authorized  in sections sixteen hundred twenty, sixteen   hundred  twenty-two,  sixteen  hundred  twenty-three,  sixteen   hundred   twenty-seven,  sixteen  hundred  thirty,  sixteen  hundred  forty-three,   sixteen hundred forty-four, sixteen hundred fifty-two,  sixteen  hundred   sixty-two-a,  sixteen  hundred sixty-three, and sixteen hundred seventy, no person shall drive in excess of such maximum  speed  limits at any time.
