White Plains Speeding Ticket Lawyer
We Can Help You Fight Your Speeding Ticket
In New York, speeding laws are severe. If you are convicted of three speeding
tickets in 18 months, your license will be suspended. An experienced attorney
can contest the charges or make a plea to keep points off your record.
Tilem & Associates, PC takes every speeding ticket and moving violation
seriously. We assist the people of the New York City area with all kinds of
traffic violations and misdemeanors.

What are the penalties for speeding?
You receive points on your license each time you get a speeding ticket.
If you get enough points, your driver’s license will be suspended.
Even if you do not get enough points for a suspension, your insurance
rates will increase dramatically. Also, you will get a civil penalty any
year you have more than 6 points. You get a $100 surcharge for three years
of 6 points, and an extra $25 for each additional point.
The surcharges apply even to out-of-state drivers. Often people from Connecticut,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or other states will pay a fine for a speeding
ticket, go home, and then find a notice about the surcharge. They may
throw it away, thinking it must be a mistake. Their license to drive in
New York will then be suspended, and they could easily get pulled over
again and charged with a very serious crime.
Speeding MPH not specified: 3 points
Speeding MPH over posted limit (1 to 10): 3 points
Speeding MPH over posted limit (11 to 20): 4 points
Speeding MPH over posted limit (21 to 30): 6 points

What We Can Do for Your Case
If you plead "not guilty" to your ticket, our White Plains traffic
ticket attorneys will have many ways to challenge the speeding ticket.
For instance, we can peruse the records that the police must keep about
the calibration of radar or laser guns. If we find inconsistencies, we
can get the speeding ticket thrown out. We can also negotiate a plea that
can make sure points are not put on your record.
