I tried to find an actual article on this to post but I am going by my g/f's word and first hand experience from another. The NY State Troopers are no longer allowed to offer reductions in speeding tickets. It has been well known that NY troopers have always been willing to "drop the speed" on your ticket a bit to a lower point penalty or just change the violation to a non-moving violation. This is no longer the case. My g/f read it in a local paper and one of her friend's husbands was pulled over and given a ticket and the trooper told him that they were no longer allowed to reduce the ticket.
Just wanted to let everyone know..............be careful out there and make sure your R/D is on at ALL times!
