Penalties for Getting a Speeding Ticket in New York

NY Speeding Ticket Lawyer (1)

Getting a speeding ticket in New York can have several repercussions, which might vary based on the severity of the violation. Here are some of the potential consequences:

Fines and Surcharges

You can expect to pay a fine depending on how much you exceed the speed limit. These fines can escalate with the severity of the offense. Additionally, there may be surcharges attached to the fines.

Points on Your Driving Record

New York operates on a point system, where different traffic violations carry a certain number of points. Speeding tickets can range from 3 to 11 points, depending on the speed over the limit. Accumulating 11 points within an 18-month period can lead to a suspended license.

Increase in Insurance Premiums

A speeding ticket on your record may increase your insurance premiums, as insurance companies might view you as a higher-risk driver.

Potential Suspension or Revocation of Driver’s License

Apart from the point system, if you’re a repeat offender or have been caught speeding excessively, it might lead to the suspension or even revocation of your driver’s license.

Traffic School

In some cases, you might be required to attend a traffic school or a defensive driving course as a part of the penalty, especially if you want to avoid points on your license.

Impact on Employment

If your job requires you to drive, having a tarnished driving record could impact your employment status, especially if your license gets suspended.

Criminal Record

In extreme cases, particularly when reckless driving (DUI/DWI) is involved, you might face misdemeanor or felony charges, which, if convicted, could result in a criminal record.

Court Appearances

Depending on your case, you might need to make court appearances, which can be time-consuming and involve additional legal fees.

DMV Assessment Fees

In New York, if you accumulate 6 or more points within 18 months, you will be required to pay a Driver Responsibility Assessment fee, separate from the fines associated with the ticket itself.
