New York man leads police on high-speed chase with toddler in car

Roads in New York City, and throughout the majority of the U.S., are regulated by speed limits. When motorists drive in excess of the speed limits, they risk losing control of their vehicle and crashing at worst, and, at best being spotted by police.

Often, a speeding ticket is only the tip of the iceberg for drivers who are stopped by law enforcement. Pulling a car over for excessive speed gives authorities the opportunity to observe and search the driver and their vehicle, which can lead to any number of other charges.

A man who was allegedly caught speeding in Cape Vincent recently is now facing a list of serious charges. The man was charged with speeding and reckless driving, in addition to endangering a child's welfare and fleeing from police after he was reportedly clocked driving at 116 miles per hour with his 3-year-old son in the vehicle. Authorities claim the man attempted to elude them, leading them on a high-speed chase for more than a half-mile before he finally pulled over.

No details were provided regarding the possible consequences for the charges the man has been accused of. He could be ordered to pay fines, have points added to his driver's license or have it suspended, or even face a jail sentence.

The man in this case, and anyone who has been charged with criminal traffic offenses, may find it helpful to obtain legal representation. An experienced attorney will be able to explain your options and address any concerns that you may have.
