It may seem as though all speeding tickets are the same. Whether you get your speeding ticket on the Taconic Parkway or on a street in a Hudson Valley town, the ticket amount may look the same. However, the actual town or village court that handles your ticket may have an impact on the outcome of your case.
Traffic tickets can be costly. Not only do you have a fine to pay, but you will also accumulate points on your license with each ticket. If you accumulate enough points, you can lose your license.
On May 20, traffic police across the state of New York began cracking down on motorists neglecting their seatbelts. The efforts are a part of the Buckle Up New York campaign announced on May 14 by Governor Andrew Cuomo. The campaign will run through June 2 and has been fueled by stark nationwide statistics from 2011. That year, over half of the passenger fatalities in auto accidents were directly related to neglecting a seatbelt.
