What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? VA, ticket was in NY
1180D speeding in NYS, Otsego Co. 80 mph in a 65. I Am a VA driver.
It was a pretty straightforward event, so I think fighting it successfully would be difficult. So, I plan to ask for a Reduction in Charge, so would like to ask for advice on what’s best to use for the “Proposal” and “Reason(s)” section of this form: ([url]http://www.otsegocounty.com/DEPTS/DA/documents/Application-for-Reduction-of-Charges-Feb-2009.pdf[/url])
Should I just propose “request reduction in charge”? Or “request a dismissal upon completion of a driver improvement program here in VA”? Or “request reduction to a lower speeding charge or a non-moving violation?” or some other specific request?
I have a clean driving record – no convictions and +5 points. There is an “Accident” on the record from 3 years ago which was not my fault. The record also indicates that accident information does not indicate fault or no-fault. Do I need to explain this accident on the Reduction form?
Thanks in advance.
