My question involves traffic court in the State of: New York
On Mother's Day of 2011 I was given a ticket for traveling 68 in a 50 zone. I was passing another vehicle at the time (I was to the left of that vehicle.) As I was slowing down after I passed the car the officer pulled me over and gave me the ticket. When I mentioned that I was in the left passing lane passing another vehicle, he said to check 'not guilty' on the ticket and that he usually doesn't show up at court hearings, anyway.
I noticed an error on the ticket that my date of birth was 2011.
I did check 'not guilty' and sent the ticket in waiting for a hearing date. A few weeks later I got a notice for October 28.2011. A few days before the hearing I received a notice that the hearing was rescheduled to February 9th, 2012. Today I got a notice from the court that the hearing has been rescheduled a third time to July 31, 2011!
Is there a limit to how many times a hearing can be rescheduled? What are my rights? Can I get this ticket dismissed? What to do? Thanks.
