    Is it the Nassau County TPVA? Or the criminal court system?

    So my cousin told me the outcome of all of this yesterday. He paid $650 for a lawyer who knocked down the points from like 10 to 3 points and he had to pay a $750 fine for the speeding ticket. He did not have to show up, the lawyer handle everything. That's really getting off easy since this is his second speeding ticket in 2 years.

    $1400.00, OUCH! That would have paid for a lot of countermeasures. My suggestion to him would be to ease up on the throttle and beg, borrow or steal enough money to buy an R3. Even a set of used LI's would be better than nothing.

    He just spent 800 dollars on a new exhaust, I think he can afford an R3. It's just his age, he isn't ready to let off the pedal yet.

    Oh? So now he wants to be pulled over for loud exhaust instead of speeding?

    Ha fortunately he doesn't like loud exhaust systems. So he purchased the q300 which is pretty quiet while allowing performance benefits similar to those of it's louder counterparts.

    Why lawyer up? I'm often confused why so many suggest this so often.

    I never needed a lawyer, i just go in and plead it down then take a course to make it go away. Worked particularly well when i was young, generally I ask for help and got it knocked down. From major points to almost noting. All in NY.

    if you are out of state and you have to appear in court it can be an inconvenience (depending on severity of ticket some courts won't let you plea by mail).


    It just depends on how much work you want to put into it yourself versus paying someone else to do it for your.

    I don't mind the work and time put in, its always paid off (seems they appreciate the appearance) and its saved me some points and cash. But out of state or with someone who doesn't have the time but the $$$ i guess why not.

    Pretty hefty payouts, but getting points reduced from 10 to 3 is a big deal. Given he's been snagged before makes the point reduction a bigger deal. Pay to play.

    It’s an unholy alliance between the courts & the lawyers. Easy money for lawyers and easy disposable of caseload by courts. Often the corrupt courts collect the same money reclassified as court costs instead of fines so they don’t care. Remember, the purpose of the system is to extort money from the subjects to enrich the rulers’ coffers. Safety is just a facade with which you cannot argue.
