It has happened to so many drivers. That sinking feeling in your stomach as you see the lights of a police vehicle appear in your rearview mirror. The officer comes to your window and asks “Do you know why I pulled you over?” or “Do you know how fast you were going?” Sure enough, you are issued a ticket for speeding or some other moving violation and have to decide what to do. It is simple. Call us. Why?
A conviction for speeding in New York has consequences, including points, fines and surcharges. Take a look at the points that will be assessed to your driver’s license if you are residing in this state and are convicted of speeding even one time:
|Speeding 01-10 mph over speed limit||3|
|Speeding 11-20 mph over speed limit||4|
|Speeding 21-30 mph over speed limit||6|
|Speeding 31-40 mph over speed limit||8|
|Speeding more than 40 mph over speed limit||11|
Your New York driver’s license may be suspended if you have 11 or more points in 18 months.
Multiple Speeding Convictions
Three speeding convictions within 18 months will result in the suspension of your license. This suspension is mandatory. Can you risk having your license suspended?
Fines And Surcharges
Convictions will result in fines and surcharges. The amount of the fine will depend in large part upon the severity of the offense. For example, the maximum fine for a speed of up to 10mph over the limit is $150. The maximum fine for a speed of greater than 31mph over the limit is $600.
Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee
The New York DMV imposes a Driver Responsibility Assessment fee for drivers who accumulate six or more points on their license in an 18-month period. This fee must be paid for three straight years. The amount of the assessment is $100 for six points and increases $25.00 per year for each point over six points.
Failure to pay the assessment will result in the suspension of your license. The Driver Responsibility Assessment fee is in addition to any fine and surcharge imposed by the court.
Convenience And Time Value
Can you afford to take time off from work or school to go to court and fight your ticket? What if you have to go to court multiple times?
