Q: Hey I have gotten a no insurance and no registration ticket but the car wasn’t mines what can I tell the judge ?

While it sounds unfair, the law requires drivers to know that the vehicle they are driving is properly registered and insured. You can argue that it was not your vehicle, but you may be held responsible for driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle.

Not sure what the question is. If you ignore the ticket, your driver's license will be suspended in both NY and NJ. If you pay the ticket in NY you will have a record of conviction in both NY and NJ. Do you want to fight the ticket?

If the violation is a speeding charge only, New York does not usually assess points onto your driver’s license for the out-of-state violation (unless committed in particular places in Canada). It won't be likely that your insurnace company will learn of your speeding violation from AL.
