Fines for §1180(a) - Speed Not Reasonable or Prudent

by Seth Azria on 2/04/2019

Speeding Without Exceeding the Limits

This charge is sometimes given in connection with an accident. For example, when a car slides off the road and hits a guardrail. Even though the police may not have witnessed the event, the charge applies because the officer may conclude that the driver was not driving at prudent speed at that time. Even if the speed limit is 65 mph, and a person is driving 45 mph, if the road conditions are poor, they still could be charged under this section of the law. This speeding ticket does not involve a definite speed.

Fines and Possible Jail

  1. $45 - $150 - First offense in18 months. Up to 15 days in jail. 
  2. $90 - $300 - Second offense in 18 months. Up to 30 days in jail. 
  3. $45 - $525 - Second offense in 18 months. Up to 30 days in jail. 

Mandatory Surcharge

  • $93 for town and village courts
  • $88 for other courts, e.g. city courts

Professional & Trustworthy

I contacted the office after receiving a speeding ticket. I was informed of my options and the likelihood of various outcomes and retained the services of the Azria office. The entire process was seamless and I was informed of the progress of the proceedings every step of the way. In the end, the case was reduced to a non moving violation. I would highly recommend the firm.

Very Quick and Easy!

I called Mr. Azria due to a speeding ticket in another county. He gave me a price quote upfront and within a few days had gotten my 4 point offense reduced to a non-moving violation. All in all I only had to email him the ticket information and pay him a very reasonable fee(which I was able to do online). He did the rest, very convenient. He was very quick to respond to me and readily available if needed. Mr Azria also contacted me with updates via both email and regular mail. I am very satisfied with his services and will use him if needed in the future.

A fantastic experience and wonderful representation. Got my ticket reduced to 70 in 65 with a very difficult judge. Original speeding ticket was significantly higher and I owe the reduction entirely to the A&B legal team - highly recommended!

I received a speeding ticket going around a truck that ice was flying off the back. I contacted A&B ( Ralph, Seth, Shannon) and they were able to get the fine reduced to no points. I would definitely recommend.

Extremely satisfied

I have hired the Azria law firm twice to represent my daughter, once for speeding and the other was an accident. Both times I was extremely pleased with the outcome, in both cases they were dropped to no pointers. Everything was handled through e-mail, which was very convenient and in both cases were taken care of from start to finish within a month. I would recomend them to anyone. Thank you again for all of your help.
