Q. Ticket in NYC and now living in FL
A: Hi, Just to note this is either a 2 point or a 3 point violation; depending how the officer wrote. Also, in NYC, all tickets go to trial, and therefore, the only possible outcome is either dismissed or guilty. The chances of winning are about 50/50. We do fight a lot of tickets in NYC, and would be able to represent you in court without your appearance. Lastly, before you make a decision whether to fight this ticket or not, I would first ask a Florida traffic Attorney if the points from NY transfer to Florida or not. This would make it easier for you to decide to whether to fight the ticket or just plead guilty. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Zev
Q. so there are no grounds for an appeal to be found not guilty- appeals board looks at evidence the same way?
A: Usually on appeal the higher courts will not look too much at the evidence. The appeals courts look at the legal standard used by the lower court. If the legal standard was not correct, usually you can get a reversal. But the appeals courts usually defer to the judgement of the lower courts.
Q. I was in traffic court accused of going 64 in a 30 zone. I proved in the court that my vehicle was in the 50 MPH zone
A: If you could convince the Judge that the speed limit was 50, you are still accused of doing 63 MPH which is still a 4 point speeding ticket.
Q. Plea date was due today the 12 I thought it said 15 going asap tomorrow on 13 am i in more trouble going one day late
A: It depends. What are you charged with and in what Court is the ticket filed?

Q. Got a cell phone ticket in NYC 1225D(1). Once I got home I realized that the time of offence was off (alibi).
