Would I be correct is saying that if I request discovery from the Prosecutor/State Police Officer and they do not provide me with what I ask, they subsequently would not be allowed to present the previously requested evidence in court?
I also know that it depends on the angle of the gun and that they are not very accurate this officer was also telling me that it would be very easy to get out of it He was not very professional I tried asking what I did before providing my id but he wouldn’t tell me until I did and after he came...

Not sure what the question is. The police are approximately accurate with speed recognition. If the officer credibly claims you were doing 60 MPH, you are going to have a hard time claiming you were going 35 MPH.

After i mailed it i never heard back, I have severe anxiety and am scared to call the courthouse only for them to tell me i might have a a warrant out for my arrest. After covid hit i lost my job and I had a lot of personal problems that caused me to have... Read more »
You will not get points, and your insurance should not increase. Reason, the camera shows the vehicle speeding, but not who was driving the vehicle. It is error to assume the owner/registrant is the driver
Assuming you are writing the citation correctly "VTL 375-2(a)3" this is an equipment violation, for no/insufficient tail lamp. As long as you pay the ticket, the ticket will not affect your driving record.
I was the passenger in a car where the driver license was suspended. I was instructed to get in the driver seat because my license was valid. I also received a ticket for oper/permit/lic reg art 7, which is also a misdemeanor. What does that ticket even mean? And would it be dismissed because my... Read more »
This is an 11 point speeding ticket, which means your driver's license can be suspended for this ticket alone. An attorney can likely get get some of the points reduced, so your license does not get suspended.
I got a ticket 2 years ago in the bronx for texting and driving which is 5 points. Than a ticket 2 months later which I didnt plead guilty to for going 21 over the speed limit which is 5 points. My court date is in mid july if I get convicted would it automatically suspend my license. After this... Read more »
Speeding 21 over the limit is 6 points, not 5. Based on your representation that both of these tickets happened 2 years ago, we are guessing that both tickets were issued in the 5 boroughs of NYC. In that case, the TVB judge will have discretion to suspend your license, or not to suspend your...Read more »
Can you challenge the ticket? Certainly. Are you saying that you yielded to the emergency vehicle? Was this ticket issued by a police officer, or a camera? Police issued red light tickets are worth 3 points.
I forgot about a speeding ticket which resulted in the suspension of my license. My record status is: Suspended.even though the letter I received from the Traffic Violations Division states that "Convictions are removed from your driving record". I don't know what to do because the... Read more »
In NY, 84/65 is 4 points. Outside of NYS the max fine for a first offense is around $400. If you ignore the ticket your driver's license will be suspended, and the next time you drive you can be arrested.
Why don't NYC traffic tickets contain a sworn statement by the ticketing officer that he personally served the ticket? According to Section 150.40(2) of the CPL (NYS) "An appearance ticket, other than one issued for a traffic infraction relating to parking, must be served... Read more »
