Speeding Tickets

Many traffic charges are speeding tickets under Vehicle and Traffic law Section 1180(D) . Your speed determines how many points are assessed against your license. In turn, your license may be suspended if you violated the maximum number of points on your license. Therefore, you should defend every traffic ticket in the Capital District. Additionally, a speeding ticket under Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 1180(c) - Speeding in a School Zone may cause you additional penalties with additional fines and points.
