Back when I lived in NY I got a ticket and showed up to the court date. Got it lowered to a parking ticket and had to goto defensive driving class. I was only 10 over though...you were nearly thirty. Best bet: call the court and ask. Heck, try calling the police. If you really do have a clean record, they might just take it easy on you...cant hurt to ask.
Sheeet CBJ. If you still had the Honda this wouldn't have happened. NJ points (things you get when you get a ticket like this) make your insurance premium go up. If you intend to keep speeding like this, your driver’s license will get suspended when you reach a certain point level. If you go to court you can prob. pay a few hundred extra bucks to get the points reduced or even eliminated. Call the boy, he can tell you all about points!!
Here in VA not only do points vary for each offense the amount of time it stays on your record changes. A reckless driving offense (which 93 in a 65 will get you) will stay on your driving record for 9 years.
I would go to court and talk to the judge. If you stopped promptly and were cooperative with the officer it will go a long way towards a reduced charge.
"New York drivers should not be affected - New York does not recognize out-of-state tickets (except, strangely, from Ontario and Quebec) and they do not appear on a NY driving record. Many other states recognize out-of-state tickets, and they do affect insurance."
They do however write this
"For New York drivers who get out-of-state tickets, these generally will not affect you. We have heard that tickets from Quebec and Ontario can affect a NY driving record, but we've never seen it. It is always possible that your insurance company will find out about an out-of-state violation, and if they do, your rates might go up"
I'm pretty sure NJ still use the same CPU system. Mail in your check; however, write the amount for some small amount over the fine. When they send you a check for the difference, rip it up and throw it in the trash. Their CPU used to consider the trasaction open and points would not go onto your license. Still worth a try!
show up and see if you can plead it down. worked every time I tried it in NY (including 23 over pleaded down to a $175 seatbelt violation, *and* I had a prior still on my record). 93 seems quite high, but you never know...
I did get a $125 trespassing fine when I was out riding today. No signs or anything. I was informed it was military property. I said, "I was active duty Army." He wrote me a ticket. I'm taking the freaking thing to court just out of principle. @ss
