. I received a Uniform Traffic Ticket on the NYS Thruway

Hello. I received a Uniform Traffic Ticket on the NYS Thruway in the Town on Evans, Erie County. Cop pulls me over and says I was going 81 (limit: 65) mph. Also said the car right in front of me was going 77. I would have hit that car if I was going 81. Speeding? Yes. 81? No. Either way, speeding. I'm concerned with the 'Plea of Guilty' wording on the citation, 'liable to a penalty, but in addition your license to drive a motor vehicle and your certificate of registration, if any, are subject to suspension and revocation...' If I plead guilty, will I receive only a fine as issued by a judge (the cop says so and sarcastically asked if I'd like him to write me a speeding ticket instead when I didn't understand the UTT) or am I opening myself up to points, suspension and revocation? Appears to be the evolution of the photo radar, i.e. cash grab. I don't want to run afoul, but am I setting myself up to incur more than a mere fine? Thank you for your opinion. Sincerely, ***** ***** Love NY

Law Educator Only Thank you for reviewing my query The

Law Educator OnlyThank you for reviewing my queryThe recent granting of full disability from S.S. is something I would like to utilise at trial given they specifically refer and used the medical reports from my accident to make the determination. They did throw out the information from their doctor stating that the opinions provided were not in line with the other physicians medical reports and statements.1. Could that be something the defense will attempt to utilise? If so, what is the suggestion for negating it.2. Since the determination is not a public document, what is the best method to certify this? Do I need to get the judge who adjudicated the hearing to sign, (which may be difficult b.c. it's S.S.) or would a clerk with SS be sufficient?Would I also need someone from data entry or computer records to confirm the data is stored in the course of normal business.Being a government entity isn't as easy at getting the info as with hospitals or doctors offices. But I know this is important because this document is a primary basis of proof given they say there was no injury or damages--so if necessary I would rather have too much documentation to certify rather than not enough.I have more than enough time to get started jumping through the red tape given the pre trial isn't for several months but I want to be ready.Suggestions?Thank you

A relative tells me he is in trouble with the law and could lose his driver's license AND go to prison unless he pays $2,500. In fines. Yet, after I requested copies of the pertinent paperwork, he "can't get ahold of" the public defender assigned to his case. Said public defender is in *another county*. In this case, aren't the files open to the public? Won't the files be in the county courthouse where the arrest for DUI occurred?It seems unwise to give my relative cash to pay these fines. He hasn't even provided me with a case number.

I was recently cited for using my cell phone while driving.

Hello. I was recently cited for using my cell phone while driving. I was devastated as I have a clean driving record. I always make it a point to follow all traffic laws including the use of an electronic device while driving knowing that it can be a huge distraction. Whenever I'm driving and if a call is coming in, I would either ignore it or use the speaker feature. In this case, I noticed that it was the number to my children's school so I immediately thought it was an emergency so I picked up. I did use the hands-free speaker but was holding the phone in my right hand in the middle of my chest with it facing up so I could hear. It was not up to my ear. I would describe it like holding any other item i.e. cup of coffee or a sandwich in my right hand. As soon as I realized the call was not an emergency I cut the call short. The call only lasted for a minute. In addition, this happened as a tag team effort by the police. The observing officer was in one location and the citing officer was in another. It was pretty chaotic as there were many cars being pulled over either for cell phone violation or not wearing a seat belt. I was off the phone well before I reached the citing officer so I was confused. He then explained to me how I was observed by another officer in another location. The fine is pretty steep and I'm concerned how it would look on my driving record. I live in the state of Hawaii and the fine is $297!! Also, I noticed that on the ticket my vehicle was described by an incorrect color. My vehicle is blue. However, on the ticket it was described as green. Could this be thrown out on a technicality? Thank you for your help!JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: HawaiiJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: No. I have the option to write a statementJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it.
