Understand The Full Impact Of A Speeding Ticket
When people think about speeding tickets, they typically think primarily of the fine. However, the fine may only be the tip of the iceberg. You will accumulate points that may force you to take a costly Driver Responsibility Assessment or result in driver’s license suspension.
Furthermore, you must think of the impact on your insurance rates. People often find that the increase in insurance rates after a speeding ticket is actually more expensive than the fine. All of this makes the cost of hiring a skilled traffic crimes lawyer well worth it.
How Points Work In New York State
A single speeding violation can carry a penalty ranging from 3 point to 11 points. If you accumulate a total of 11 points in an 18-month period, DMV may suspend your driver’s license. If you accumulate as few as 6 points on your driving record, you may be subject to the New York Driver Responsibility Assessment Program. This means that DMV will assess a financial penalty that you must pay to DMV every year for three years. This penalty is in addition to the original fine that you will have to pay the court for each of your violations.
|Speed over the posted limit||Number of points|
|1 to 10 miles per hour||3 points|
|11 to 20 miles per hour||4 points|
|21 to 30 miles per hour||6 Points|
|31 to 40 miles per hour||8 points|
|Over 40 miles per hour||11 points|
