i am a 19 year old male-- college student clean record. I got a speeding ticket for going 45 in a 35mph zone. I was switching lanes and used signal. I was also given a dangerous driving ticket as well. As he handed it to me he said I could take a course to reduce the penalty. What do I do?
what is your state? What was the statute of the dangerous driving ticket?
I don't know the statute--how do I find it on the ticket
It is on there somewhere. I am not sure on a NY ticket. Is this a local city ticket outside of NYC?
yes staten island does 402c mean anything?
It appears that you are in the TVB and that both of these tickets are 3 point tickets. With 6 points on your record you will see a huge increase in your insurance rates. Since you have two, this is worth retaining an attorney. You don't have much of a chance in the Staten Island TVB. http://www.nytrafficticket.com/blog/index.php/2010/08/30/the-worst-traffic-violations-bureau/Here is more information on NY Speeding Ticketshttp://www.speedingticketcentral.com/New-York-speeding-ticket.html
