I was wondering if there was such a thing as statute of limitations for a stop sign violation? I went to court for this infraction and requested for it to be dismissed under the New York section 100.40 that if the ticket is not written clearly on its face that you have a right to have it be dismissed. The DA offered me 2 points but said his offer would be gone after the case gets dismissed, however, the judge was very outraged by my reasoning behind dismissing my citation that he dismissed my ticket and ordered the officer that gave me the ticket to issue me another ticket, (as in go to his car and write me another printed out ticket) the judge did not order me to stay he then left the bench and went into another room, the officer that gave me the ticket (who was also in court that night was expecting me to cross examine him because I was also going to trial as well even though it was the initial court date and time) The officer that originally pulled me over left the court and so did I because I was not ordered to stay by the judge. I then left and went home however since then I have been harassed, threatened, by the state police they have came to my door at all hours of the nigh
There is a statute of limitations on all crimes, traffic include. Google it.
