Depending on which court in Westchester there may or may not be a District Attorney for traffic tickets and for this reason some courts do not plan a bargain.
If there is no District attorney the only people involved are the Traffic Ticket Lawyer, the Police, a Judge, and the defendant. Therefore, only two options are available: to have a trial or to plead guilty. There just is not a substitute for a Speeding Ticket Lawyer with experience and who can query the Police Officer of the method used to gauge the defendant’s speed with radar visual or if they were docked. Assuming that no witnesses are involved, it will be your word against the Officer’s. This explains the importance of questioning the Officer. Establishing any inconsistencies or discrepancies within the Officer’s testimony, gives you a winning chance against a Speeding Ticket. It is very important to try to contest a Speeding Ticket as insurance companies seek to raise the rates of their insureds that have received a Speeding Ticket. In addition, the Department of Motor Vehicles institutes penalties against your Driver's License by assessing points. A total of eleven points in an eighteen-month period can result in the suspension of your license. Each Westchester County Traffic Ticket Lawyer will attest to this. The points are accrued based upon the issue day of the ticket not the date of conviction. One of the New York Traffic Lawyers in our office assembled the Westchester County Traffic Violations system of points. The conviction of speeding up to ten miles an hour over the speed limit is worth three points on your license. The conviction of traveling between eleven and twenty miles per hour exceeding the speed limit accrues four points. Traveling twenty-one to thirty miles an hour over the speed limit acquires six points in Westchester County. The conviction of speeding between thirty-one and forty miles an hour beyond the limit adds eight points to your Driver's License. If you are convicted of speeding forty miles or more per hour in excess of the speed limit, eleven points will be assessed and there is the chance that your license could be suspended. This explains the importance of having a Westchester County Speeding Ticket Lawyer familiar with Westchester County Traffic Laws and the New York City Traffic Violators Bureau.
