Got a speeding ticket in NY, 22 MPH over the speed limit, how to reduce points?
also, I read about "plea of abeyance" on the Internet. is this option applicable for my situation? If so, how do I go about asking for this?

There is no "plea of abeyance" in New York.
You (or your attorney) should plead not guilty and appear for a conference. You should likely be able to get it reduced to a lesser charge.
A 62/40 is 6 points and carries about a $180 fine plus a $300 assessment fee. By pleaing it down, you will save points and the $300 assessment fee.
