I used to tear up that section of highway when I lived there. Cops would often hide there. If you were heading South there's an on ramp that they are perched way up on. If you were heading North there's a number of spots they can hide. Exit from the Cloisters or the on ramps after the GWB.
Postpone the court date as often as you can. Worst case he shows up and you pay the fine. If he doesn't show then you are all good.
