I was traveling on the Palisades around 12am Monday morning when a Palisades Interstate Cop pulled me over for doing 71 in a 50. He had paced me and gave me a ticket.

My question is this, what is the best way to fight this? My court appearance is in 2 weeks and I was wondering if some jersey people could give me some advice.

Thanks!!

Hey Rich,

I am not sure how's the traffic law in NJ, but here in Cal, there's almost no way that we'll win over the cops unless he doesn't appear at the court.
When was last time you attend the traffic school?
If you can't go to the traffic school at this time, why don't you take a risk and call him to the court. If you plaid not guilty, you'll only lose the opportunity to attend the traffic school.
Hey, what do you got to lose??? If he does show at the court, just pay the citation. If he doesn't show at the court however, your case will be dis-missed.

Just my 2cents..... ;)

Well the problem is more with insurance. My rate will increase because of this. I'm not worried about points because it was an out of state ticket.

Your insurance rate will increase because of your driving point!!! :sqnteek: So it does matter.....I think.

Well I was under the impression that out of state tickets don't carry points. I asked the cop that and he said there was no point associated with the ticket, but you can't trust his word. Someone mentioned a tri-state law that allows points to be transferred to my license. Never heard of that!! Going to look into it though!!

well it's a good idea to get to the yellow page and look at some of the traffic attorneys around town, they can give you the most accurate answers on what you could do and what happen. but yeah, you insurance rate depends on the points you have in your record, so...

btw, songoku, are you sure that in cal, if you plead not guilty, and later found guilty, you can't attend traffic school?

Yeah, 100% sure. My experiece. ;)

If you plead not guilty, you'll lose the option to attend the traffic school. The judge will tell you.

Here is what I found on the DMV website:

New York DMV does not record out-of-state violations committed by NYS drivers in other jurisdictions, except for out-of-state alcohol or drug-related violations (e.g. DUI) and moving violations committed in Quebec and Ontario. Therefore, except for violations in Ontario and Quebec, points are not added to your NYS record for out-of-state violations.

However, if you fail to answer a ticket or pay a fine for a moving violation in any state except Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon or Wisconsin, your NYS license will be suspended until the ticket is answered or the fine is paid. A driver from any state, except the six listed above, will have his or her license suspended for failure to answer a moving violation summons or pay a fine in NYS.

If you are convicted of an alcohol or drug-related driving violation in any state, your NYS license will be revoked for at least six months. Otherwise, except for convictions in Quebec or Ontario under special agreements, out-of-state traffic convictions are not recorded on NYS license records and do not carry points.

Out-of-state drivers ticketed in NYS should contact their home-state DMV about the affect of a conviction in NYS.
