1180 0D and 1229-C 02C in Clifton Park Town Court

Our client in this case was given 2 citations on I-87 in the town of Clifton Park – just north of Albany in Saratoga County. The first ticket was an 1180 SPEED IN ZONE (speeding at 81mph in a 65mph zone) and the second was a 1229C2C FRONT SEAT PASS AGE 4-7 NO/IMPROPR RESTRAINT (not having child in a proper safety seat). These are both fairly serious charges that could have cost our client several hundreds of dollars in fines, 4 points for the speeding ticket, and 3 points for the child safety restraint ticket if they had plead guilty – 7 points total for charges our client denied having committed!

We, of course, entered a not guilty plea on their behalf and were eventually able to have the speeding ticket reduced to a 0 point parking ticket (1201 0A STOP/PARK VIOL) with a fine of $150.00 and no surcharge. The court agreed to reduce the child restraint ticket to a regular 2 point seat belt violation (VTL 1229-C3 SEAT BELT VIOL) with a $50.00 fine and a $85.00 surcharge. Our client saved not only hundreds of dollars in fines and possible special assessment fees, but also untold dollars in auto insurance premiums. Only 2 generic points were issued and a total of $285.00 in fines was required to be paid, an excellent disposition in this case.
