Customer Question
Hello, I was in New...
Hello, I was in New York a few days ago and received a speeding ticket, was doing 50 in a 25mph tunnel, I'm a Florida resident and that was my first time in NYC after approximately 4yrs, however, first time driving a car. I did not know the speeding limit in NY was 25mph if non posted. It was almost midnight, I was going back to the hotel, my wife and my two daughters were in the car with me, and I got pulled over by a police officer as soon as I got out of the tunnel, and he showed my speed in the radar. I got a ticket for $203. My question is, do I just plead guilty and pay the ticket or do I have any chance to plead not guilty? I just wouldn't like to have my good driving history damaged by this only traffic violation in 4yrs. (I never got a ticket in FL either), please advise, thank you. Jezz

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
