Don’t Plead Guilty
The worst way to deal with traffic tickets in New York is to plead guilty by mail.
Pleading guilty cuts off your chance for a reduction and locks in the consequences for the original charge. The consequences accumulate quickly.
Pleading guilty with an "explanation" on the ticket will not cause the ticket to be changed or reduced. The only affect might be on the amount of the fine the judge must impose within a range required by law.
NY Traffic Tickets are Not Informative
New York tickets do not include much information and so the fines and surcharges from the court and points assessed against your record come as a surprise to many. Through information sharing among states and provinces, these consequences apply even for out-of-state and Canadian drivers.
For multiple or certain traffic ticket convictions, the New York DMV will impose additional fines, suspend or revoke a driving priviledge. Insurance companies may also increase your premiums or drop your coverage.

Some tickets are not worth fighting but the vast majority are. You should never plead guilty to any traffic ticket without first knowing:
