Driving with a suspended registration is a criminal offense (misdemeanor). Therefore, you should definitely consult with (if not hire) an experienced NY traffic ticket lawyer. The no insurance ticket is also serious as it carries a 1-year automatic revocation of license (plus hefty fines). Feel free to call us to discuss.
If you didn't show up to court, then you were suspended for failing to answer it. You can lift the suspension by paying some money. The first step is to run your driver's license so you can determine how many suspensions and in which courts they are located. You likely will not go to jail but I do recommend that you have an attorney to help clear things up and avoid jail. For more information about suspensions and lifting them, read the below web page.

I handle 10 to 20 tickets a month in this court so am very familiar with its practices. If you plead guilty, the fine will be roughly $300. Your insurance may be increased but it also may not. I recommend that you plead not guilty and fight this ticket.

The officer gave you a "break" by reducing the 4-point speeding ticket to a 2-point disobey traffic control device ticket. The ticket sounds properly completed.

You cannot work out a "deal" at the Brooklyn traffic court. At this court, there are no deals. It is an "all or nothing" court. You should nevertheless fight this 8-point speeding ticket. It carries a lot of points, will be expensive and, most importantly, can result in your being suspended.
The below article that I wrote should help you understand better what you're up against.
You should fight this ticket because it will carry 4 points and can hurt your auto insurance rates. How you fight it depends in which court your case is pending. The easiest thing is to just consult with a NY traffic lawyer about your ticket. We don't charge for a consultation.
Reckless driving is a 5 point ticket and a misdemeanor. In NYC, there are ways to possibly get this dismissed but there, of course, is no guarantee. The wrong location is one way for getting a dismissal but only after taking it to trial (and risking losing).
We dozens of such cases every year.
At the Queens TVB, there is no plea bargaining. It is either guilty or not guilty. With that said, you have nothing to lose by fighting this ticket. You will get the same points and roughly the same fine amount either way. Therefore, I recommend that you plead not guilty. Below is a link to an article that I wrote that will help you better understand the TVB system. Feel free to call me if you have any questions or need professional and experienced help.
