Bay Ridge Speeding Ticket Lawyer

Speeding tickets are as common in Bay Ridge as they are anywhere else. But a Bay Ridge speeding ticket attorney can help keep you from having to pay.

Speeding is one of the most common traffic violations you can be charged with, and law enforcement officials take it seriously. The courts also treat it with severe punishments that can wreak havoc on your finances and possibly lead to your personal mobility being taken away.

But no matter how fast you were caught going, you can fight your speeding ticket. Get in touch with a Bay Ridge speeding ticket lawyer from the Law Office of James Medows for help.


Penalties for Speeding

The penalties for speeding grow with how fast you were going. At every level, you are charged a fine and receive points on your license. Depending on your circumstances, you can even land in jail.

The following list breaks down the various denominations of speeding tickets in New York:

  • When you are traveling at a speed that is deemed inappropriate for the road conditions or weather, you can get a ticket that will put two points on your license and charge you a fine between $45 and $618. In rare cases, you can also receive up to fifteen days of jail time.
  • Going one to ten miles per hour over the speed limit will earn you three license points, a fine between $90 and $618, and up to thirty days in jail.
  • Eleven to twenty over earns you four points, a fine between $180 and $768, and up to thirty days of jail time.
  • Twenty-one to thirty over gets you six points, a fine between $180 and $768, and up to thirty days in jail.
  • Thirty-one to forty over charges you eight points, a fine between $360 and $1,068, and up to thirty days of jail.
  • Going more than forty over comes with eleven points, which instantly loses you your license. You also receive a fine between $360 and $1,068 and up to thirty days in jail.

These fines are financially burdensome, but becoming unable to drive yourself to work or transport your children to school is arguably worse.

When you reach six points on your license, you are charged an annual driver responsibility assessment. Reaching eleven points costs you your ability to legally drive.


Defenses Against Speeding Tickets

The goal for your Bay Ridge speeding violation attorney will be to get the charges dropped completely or at least have them reduced.

Some defenses we might use can come down to technicalities. For example, what if the radar gun that clocked you as going too fast had not been adequately tested or maintained? The officer might not be up to date on training, either. It’s also possible that the ticketing officer scanned the wrong vehicle and thought you were the one speeding when you actually weren’t.
