8 Years ago I received tickets for non insurance in Schenectady NY. I am told I have to appear and because I am disabled I have not been able to get there, I live in NH now.
The tickets are $400.
I received an answer that said;The statute of limitations was satisfied when you were handed the ticket. If the court date was postponed for 8 years you should file a written motion to dismiss based upon a constitutional speedy trial violation.
But I missed the court date because I am now disabled. Can I assume I need to pay these tickets?
Do not assume anything. Contact the Court and ask the status or better yet hire an experienced traffic ticket lawyer to represent you. I and most traffic ticket lawyers offer a free telephone consultation. Call or email during regular business hours for your best opportunity to make contact.

Pleading guilty to driving without insurance is a disaster. Try to avoid that at all costs. An attorney can go to court instead of you and handle this.
