Don’t Just Pay That Ticket. Fight Back!
There are often excellent reasons to fight a traffic ticket. And it doesn’t take many points to quickly add up to a suspended driver’s license. And if you are like most people, you simply can’t afford to be without a license.
A license suspension is automatic at 11 points. You can easily get that with two separate tickets, or even one incident of speeding and reckless driving.
Traffic Enforcement is Tougher Than Ever
Technological advancements are making it quicker and easier for police departments to write more traffic citations. Automatic systems for tracking data and generating revenue are being put in place all the time.
Even small towns like Frankfort, NY in Herkimer County and Wayne County are buying high tech license plate scanning technology. This not only steps up traffic enforcement, but makes it easier to flag suspended licenses and outstanding warrants.
You need an attorney on your side just to even the odds against you.
What Can You Do To Beat a NY Traffic Ticket?
In many case it is possible to get a traffic offense reduced to a lesser charge, saving you money and points on your driver’s license.
Of course, the goal is always to get a ticket dismissed entirely, but it is often economically rational to fight a ticket. Even with lawyer fees, you will often end up saving money.
