If you are found guilty, you will lose your driving privileges for a short amount of time. And when you regain the privilege to drive, if you get another ticket within a short amount of time, you will lose your privileges again. This is a bad ticket- 8 point speed. You must contact an attorney. You have no choice.
Serious 8 point ticket. An attorney can go to court instead of you and try to beat the ticket or minimize the damage.
The Benjamin Goldman Law Office fights traffic tickets exclusively.
An 8 point, 33 MPH speed WILL trigger a suspension of your permit. You need to hire a lawyer ASAP. You should also take a NYS DMV approved online defensive driving class (see below for a link to the course). If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to reach out and contact us!
Whether or not you hire a lawyer, it is always in your interest to take an online defensive driving course, which can be found here: https://www.americansafetycouncil.com/online-courses/?lgr=f03107d0-a438-e111-9481-00c09f3f0f12. Upon completion of the course your auto insurer will have to give you a 10% premium discount for 3 years, and the DMV will give you a 4 point credit towards suspensions in the 18 month period prior to taking the course. So there is an overall savings for taking the course and it can potentially prevent a license suspension for hitting too many points. Are you aware that when you hire a NY traffic ticket defense lawyer you don't even have to go to court your lawyer goes for you? We are a boutique law practice that only represents clients charged with moving violations, auto crimes, and before the DMV in administrative issues. We typically charge one time flat fees, and give a money back guarantee in most cases.
