How to beat your NYC speeding ticket
If you want to represent yourself to fight and beat your NYC speeding ticket you need to educate yourself on a few things. First off, there is no plea bargaining in the NYC traffic court. This means that every single case goes to trial. Consequently, this will require that you prepare your own trial.
A trial consists of several parts:
- Opening statements
- The people’s direct case
- The defendant’s cross examination
- The defendant’s motion for directed verdict (if appropriate)
- The defendant’s direct case
- The people’s cross examination
- Defendant’s motion to dismiss (if appropriate)
- Closing statements
- Verdict by the court
If you want to represent yourself think of each of these parts of a trial as an evolution. When you are doing that evolution you must only focus on what is appropriate for that section of the trial. In other words, you don’t move to dismiss during the opening argument.
In order to properly prepare a case you need to know the following:
- Rules of evidence
- Rules of the court
- Burden of proof
- How the radar equipment works
- How visual estimation works
When representing yourself to fight a NYC speeding ticket, keep in mind that the critical cross examination will focus around the radar equipment and visual estimation. Further, unless the people make a prima facie case the speeding ticket must be dismissed on a directed verdict. Even if the people do make a prima facie case the speeding ticket can still be dismissed if the people failed to prove all of the elements by clear and convincing evidence.
