If you have been charged with Speeding in Cheektowaga Town Court, we can help reduce or eliminate the points you would face. Instead of pleading guilty to a moving violation, we advise clients to plead not guilty and allow us to appear in Court on their behalf. We commonly obtain a plea bargain that results in NO points, and a lower fine. Where a client is from out of town, we appear without them to save their time, and simply notify them of the results, along with instructions on how to pay the fine and the deadline imposed by the Court.
When you receive a ticket, you have a choice of simply pleading guilty or pleading not guilty. If you plead guilty to speeding or any other moving violation, New York State will assess points against your driving record. New York will also share the record of that conviction with nearly every other State and the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec. In the case of speeding, when New York shares the record of your conviction, your home state or province will post points to your record at home.
As a result, our goal in any case is simple:
- Eliminate the points that would result from the charge;
- Reduce the fines that would result from the charge;
- Save the client’s time by appearing on their behalf.
Points are important because Insurance Companies use your driving record to set your premiums. The more points on your record, the higher your premium. Some experts estimate that a single moving violation can cause a driver’s premium to go up as much as thirty percent, and that increase typically applies for three years following the conviction.
