Speed ticket in New York



I wondering have anyone from Toronto or Ontario got a speed ticket at New York State. This weekend on my way back from New York City, i got pull over by State Police was doing 90mhp at 65 mhp zone at 81 hwy. The ticket does not state how much the fine is, instead it has a appear day. The police officer said that mail the ticket in and the court will determine how much the fine is. I don't mine paying the fine, i just worry will it affect my driving record in Ontario, do anyone have the same experience?

Thank

Hi there

A few years back I got a ticket in Buffalo near Walden Galleria mall. I got caught speeding 90 in a 50 on the highway. They have some joint agreement where it applies to your license here as well.

I had to go down there one night to go to their Justice of the Peace and then I had to go back a month later on a Saturday AM to Grand Island to sit in a class for a day watching safety videos.

I did this so that my ticket would be reduced down to failure to obey a sign which was a 30 dollar ticket and no points. I am not sure how it goes these days tho. Best thing is call the MTO or see if there is anything on the website...

Good luck!

yes... ontario and new york have an agreement so that if you get a ticket in NY it's the same as if you got it in ontario (yesyou get full points or whatever and a big fine). A lot of the time you can speak with the district attorney and bargin down a little, but for 90 in a 65 you're looking at a decent size ticket

Yea, just happened to me earlier this summer, 70 in a 50 zone yet the ticket was still 200 something, cop said the fine depends upon the judge...... I'd figure if you didn't pay it that it would be in the computer systems and you'd get in shit at customs but I'm not too sure
