Legal Answers
300 Questions Answered
Q. I received two tickets in 2022 and the court date has been postponed 4+ times. Do I still have to go?
A: Are the points still valid? Points go on your record only, and only if you are convicted by plea, trial, or default.

Did they ever take away the points from my license? DMV maintains a lifetime record. However, the public record only maintains the points for four (4) years.

If there comes a date when they don't postpone it, do I still have to go to court? YES

How long can they postpone it? Indefinitly, in theory - however common practice shows that 4 years seems to be the upper limit.
Q. Im 19 transferred my license to NY last week Ive been driving for 5 months and just got a ticket 69 in 55 what’ll happen
A: If you are on probation, a speeding conviction, even for 1 MPH over the limit, will result in a suspension. Fight the ticket.
Q. If I was given a blank ticket does it still count in court?
A: Its not valid service. Check with the court whether anything is filed, if you can figure out where its filed.

Keep that blank paper and update your address with the NYS DMV.
