Your previous expert has opted out, but was correct in their response.
What you have to exactly do now is enter a plea of not guilty in accordance with the instructions on your citation
by the date on your ticket. You can request a telephone hearing at that time and the clerk will mail notice first class mail to you with the date and time of the hearing. It is best to appear in person when you enter your plea of not guilty, because you can also ask the court for a conference with the prosecutor and if you believe you were doing 70 and not 77 you need to explain this to the prosecutor and ask the prosecutor to reduce the fine
based on the speed you believe you were traveling. Most prosecutors are agreeable to make deals on these cases and will agree to lower the speed, which reduces your fine.
This is exactly what you need to do in order to handle this citation. I know you live in CT, but you will have to appear in court in NY to contest the ticket or you would have to hire an attorney to do so, which would likely not be worth the cost to you to do.
