New York is full of people from all over the country and all over the world. People come to our state for both business and recreation. Unfortunately, you might have gotten a speeding ticket on your vacation or business trip.
This is a frustrating position to be in, especially when you’ll need to go home before the proceedings and you know the expenses might be high. Fortunately, the attorneys at the Law Office of James Medows can help. We’ll explain how your out-of-state license will change your case and how we’ll fight to get your ticket dismissed.
If you’re an out-of-state driver, it’s important to take your speeding ticket seriously. Not only could this ticket follow you, but the penalties could be high. While our lawyers can help you fight a New York speeding ticket, you’ll need to be aware of how much your ticket may cost, and you’ll need to keep in mind that your license could be suspended if you don’t pay or get your ticket dismissed.
See the list below for the fines you may face for your speeding ticket, based on how fast your ticket says you were going:
When you’ve received a ticket, you’ll still need to do something about it even if you’re not a New York resident. Many states have agreements to share the driving records of residents and visitors. With some exceptions, a speeding ticket will likely end up on your record even if it was in New York.
Worse, if you were ticketed in New York and failed to respond, you could have your license suspended. Fortunately, you’ll have a chance to plead “not guilty” to your ticket.
And you have an opportunity to avoid the fines that come with a speeding ticket—along with points on your license—by contacting a New York speeding ticket lawyer. While a speeding ticket may not seem like a big deal at first, you’ll need to act now to protect your driving record, bank account, insurance costs, and ability to legally drive. Give us a call.
When you don’t act after getting a speeding ticket, you may face fines and a license suspension in an unfamiliar state. Getting your ticket dismissed is vital, but it can be tough to do on your own, especially when you’re not even dealing with your home-state courts.
When you’re in such a difficult situation, call the Law Office of James Medows for help. We’ll review your ticket and help you fight back.
