Below is some information about the Queens Traffic Court system that you may find helpful.
As in all the boroughs, the Queens Traffic Court system does not have a District Attorney, therefore plea bargaining is not an option.
Within the Queens Traffic Court system you will deal with the Judge, the Traffic Ticket Lawyer, and the Police. With no other options available but to plead guilty or request a trial, a knowledgeable Traffic Ticket Lawyer is crucial to protecting your rights. If you have been charged with speeding, your Traffic Ticket attorney has background in adequately questioning law officers about what actions were taken to determine your rate of speed, and to establish if you were clocked.
Questioning police is extremely important when facing these charges. When there are no witnesses, the outcome of your case can be decided based on whose testimony is more valid, yours or the Police Officer's. Your attorney can raise suspicion over any disparity in law enforcement's account, and based on this questioning you may win your case. A speeding conviction can increase your insurance premiums and cause the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue points against your license. It only takes 11 points over an 18 month period to have your license suspended.
