Speeding Ticket in Chemung
The Chemung Town Court is one the busiest justice courts in the region. This is because a large portion of the Southern Tier Expressway (I-86/NYS-17) traverses the town. Troop E of the New York State Police conduct vehicle patrol on the highway. The speed limit is 65 mph and motorists clocked traveling significantly above the speed limit will typically be stopped and cited with a speeding violation.
Speeding violations can be costly. The maximum fine for speeding 11 mph over the limit is $393. With higher speeds, the fines can be higher, and the Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee kicks in as well. The biggest cost comes later when you renew your car insurance coverage. The speeding violation and points will go onto your driving record. Every time you renew your car insurance, the insurance company checks your driving record. Once they see the updated driving record, they will typically quote much higher insurance premiums. This can go on for three to four years.
This is why, in general, it is smart to try to avoid getting these violations onto your driving record. The first step is to plead not guilty to your tickets. This way you can get your ticket dismissed or reduced. However the Chemung County District Attorney’s Office does not take traffic violations lightly.
