Traffic Ticket Defense News
New York State -- NY State Police troopers handed out more than 1,900 speeding tickets to New York Thruway drivers during a weeklong August 2012 safe-driving campaign.
“Operation Summer Brake” was created by the New York State Police to help prevent reckless driving behaviors and to stress the importance of highway driving laws, according to a state Thruway Authority news release Wednesday.
“The busy summer travel season has ended, but ‘Operation Summer Brake’ did its job by heightening motorists’ awareness of safe driving in work zones, by ticketing speeders, and aggressive and distracted drivers, and by getting many intoxicated drivers off the roads,” said Thomas Madison, the organization’s executive director, in a statement issued to the press.
New York’s state troopers issue more than 900,000 tickets a year, (wow!) even though they total only 6 percent of the state’s law enforcement officers, according to the release. Troopers issue approximately 55 percent of speeding tickets and 47 percent of seat-belt and child-seat law violations, and they make 30 percent of DWI arrests. So slow down out there!
New York State Police Troop T Sgt. Thomas Ferritto said in a statement released to the press, that the campaign offered a chance to inform drivers about enforcement efforts across the state of New York.
“We are particularly pleased to have the chance to educate motorists about the ‘move over law’ and protect maintenance workers, tow-truck operators and state troopers,” he said.
PICKENS, S.C. -- A South Carolina police officer who issued a speeding ticket to Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney was fired after using company equipment to post an account of it on the Internet.
Pickens Police Chief Rodney Gregory said in a release that officer Michael McClatchy used a department computer on Sept. 14 to detail what he said happened during the stop. Swinney was clocked going 63 mph in a 35 mph zone on Sept. 3 on the way to his radio call-in show. He was cited for speeding and the officer reduced the penalty to a minimum fine and points, according to Gregory.
McClatchy's post said he thought Swinney expected to be excused for the violation.
Gregory said Swinney paid the fine and apologized. No. 10 Clemson plays at No. 4 Florida State on Saturday night.
NJ woman jailed for decade-old traffic ticket

NEW YORK — A New Jersey woman says she spent a night in a New York City jail after police discovered she had a decade-old traffic summons.
Krystle Garcia tells NBC New York that she was arrested Thursday at a Manhattan checkpoint.
Garcia was 17 when she received the forgotten summons. It was issued because she did not have an insurance card with her.
Garcia said she received, and paid, other tickets in New York after that. She was able to renew her New Jersey driver’s license and registration without any issues.
Garcia, who works in New York City, agreed to a $155 fine. But she said her 14-hour ordeal in a holding cell was “horrifying.”
She said she shared her story because she doesn’t want it to happen to anyone else.
Internet entrepreneur Julien Chabbott, 28, was arrested after he allegedly used his $260,000 (£165,00) luxury Ferrari Spider to run over the foot of a police officer writing him a ticket in New York on Sunday, according to police.
Mr Chabbott’s girlfriend, Stephanie Pratt, a reality TV star in the US, watched the drama unfold.
As the footage of the incident shows, she later retrieved items from the Ferrari after the arrest and left the scene.
The whole scene was captured by 17-year-old New Yorker Damian Morys who was passing the Mercer hotel when the incident happened.
He said: "It was a pretty crazy situation. I was definitely at the right place at the right time - I couldn't believe it was unfolding before my eyes and that I was actually capturing it on video.

What should I do if I
am given a speeding ticket or arrested in Highlands Town Court
This Highlands Town Court
responsible for handling all preliminary hearings in felony criminal
criminals, misdemeanor criminal matters through trial, and traffic
matters including moving
violations, citations, parking tickets, speeding summonses, etc. What
is there to do if one receives traffic ticket, speeding violation, or
arrested in Highland Falls?
Usually, the ticket will indicate by when you have to answer.
The ticket will also indicate where you need to send it in to enter a
not guilty plea. If you wish to plead guilty to the ticket you must do
so either in open court or by sending the ticket in to the court
pleading guilty. Before pleading guilty to any moving violation in the
state of New York, you should know that you are subjecting yourself to
fines, surcharges, driver responsibility assessments (which are $100 a
year for three years for the first six points received in an 18 month
period), suspension, and possible jail time although it is rare. This
is not to mention insurance increases and possible cancellation of your
insurance policy in New York.
of all you, you should not ignore the summons, that
is the worst thing you can do. If you ignore a simplified
traffic information in the State of New York, the DMV can suspend your
license until you resolve the ticket. Furthermore, before the
court will remove the suspension, you must pay $70 per ticket. For
example, let's say you receive a three point stop sign ticket and a
four point speeding ticket in Highlands Town Court.
The officer printed on the tickets the date by which you have
to answer the summonses, and because you are busy or lazy or for
whatever reason, you ignore the tickets. In general, you will receive a
notice of impending drivers license Suspension from the New York State
Department of Motor Vehicles informing you that your license will be
suspended for each ticket that you did not answer.
You usually have 30
your receipt of this letter to contact the court and enter not guilty
plea. You can also receive a suspension notice after answering the
ticket not guilty and for failure to show up to court when the court
tells you that you need to appear.
in order to prevent the suspension of your license you need
to contact the court right away. If you have already been suspended,
then you need to pay $70 to lift the suspension in this case, that
would be $140. Sometimes, the court would require bail money
also, which is a pain.
is how the process works: You can either call me to discuss
tickets, or ideally you will first you fax or e-mail me the
so that I can get an accurate picture of what you are facing. As they
say a picture is worth 1000 words. After I see your ticket or after we
discuss your ticket over the phone, I will tell you how many points you
are facing and how much the fines and surcharges are, and the possible
impact on your right to drive and your insurance. I will
you a fee to represent you. In most cases, my fee is a flat fee. That
means that you only pay me once, and you know ahead of time how much
legal fees will be. My fee, of course does not include the fine that
you must pay to the court if any. After you hire me and I acknowledge
receipt of payment, I will send you a representation agreement/receipt
and I will contact the court ASAP to inform them that I am representing
you and that we are entering a not guilty plea. If you received the
summons in New York City, we may be able to enter a not guilty plea on
line. After we have contacted the court or hearing office where this
matter will be heard, we have to wait until the court sends the court
notice with the pretrial or trial date. Usually the notices will come
directly to me, especially in the case of upstate tickets. We will
appear on the date that the court requires us to appear, and in the
case of upstate courts, we will usually work out a plea bargain. A plea
bargain works like the following: I negotiate a plea whereby the
officer or prosecutor agrees to let us plead guilty to a lesser charge,
meaning a charge which carries less or no points along with a fine. At
that point I go in front of the judge with a police officer or
prosecutor, we discussed the offer in front of the judge and the judge
either accepts or denies plea bargain arrangement. Usually, judges
accept the deal's worked out, at which point the judge assesses as a
fine including the state-mandated surcharge. the court will
give us time to pay at a minimum one week and sometimes up to 30 days
(two weeks in the TVB courts). At that point, I will email
the results, including possibly a form that you can use to pay the fine
directly to the court via credit card or money order. If you
include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment to the
court, then the court will mail you a receipt for your payment. If a
fine is due on New York City traffic violations, you can pay the fine
online, and if necessary I will provide you with the link for that.
So, the $64,000
