I need some help with a recent moving violation. The ticket recieved was under New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law Secton 1180 Subsection D. The ticket was for 43 in a 25mph zone.
I did not remember seeing a posted speed limit sign from the time I got onto the main road to when the police officer ticketed me, not having seen one I stayed below the state maximum of 55mph. I admited my speed to the officer because I didnt feel it was in the wrong and had nothing to hide.
After work that day I re-traced my steps taking pictures along the way, and memory served me right there is NO posted speed limit sign from the time I got onto the main road to where the local police officer was parked.
The help I need is what the proper law is for when there is no posted speed limit sign, and what I can do about it. I don't want to just pay it to make it go away if im not in the wrong. But if I am id rather be properly informed about it.
My driving record is clean with no tickets, prior offenses, or points. The ticket occured in the Village of Wappingers Falls, NY within Dutchess County and is goverened by the NYS vehicle and traffic law listed at this website:
Any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you.
