You have been charged with speed for 55 in violation of VTL 1180-b for allegedly traveling 80 MPH in a 55 MPH zone which for a first offense within 18 months is punishable by a fine of between $90 and $300, up to 15 days in jail, 6 points, and a mandatory surcharge of $85.00. If convicted, you would also be charged a driver responsibility assessment of $100.00 per year for the next three years by the NYS DMV. If convicted, your insurance company may also surcharge you. I suggest you review the merit plan portion of your insurance policy to determine if your insurance company can surcharge you for a single moving violation. I also suggest that you contact a traffic ticket attorney in Orange County about negotiating a plea reduction agreement on your behalf to eliminate and/or minimize the above stated consequences.
PS: I suggest you be very careful arguing that you suffer from a medical condition that makes it necessary for you to sometimes exceed the posted speed limit. Someone might think you should stop driving until you get the condition under control.Ask a similar question
