Consequences of Speeding Tickets
The New York Department of Motor Vehicles issues points for certain types of traffic violations on your driving record. If you receive eleven points for traffic convictions on your record in an eighteen-month period, the DMV may suspend or revoke your license for a period of usually 31 days. Points are issued according to the date of the offense, not the date of the conviction and are as follows:
- Speeding 1 -10 miles over the posted limit: 3 points
- Speeding 11-20 miles over the posted limit: 4 points
- Speeding 21-30 miles over the posted limit: 6 points
- Speeding 31-40 miles over the posted limit: 8 points
- Speeding in excess of 40 miles over the posted limit: 11 points
Besides the accumulation of points which can result in the loss of your license, such accumulation may also result in the DMV levying a driver responsibility assessment against you of $100 for three years. In addition to this, once your auto insurance policy comes up for renewal and your insurance company learns of your speeding ticket points, your insurance costs may rise substantially. All in all, a speeding ticket can result in a huge financial blow.
Thus if you have prior convictions, fighting a new speeding ticket violation may mean the difference between keeping your driving privileges and losing them. A capable speeding ticket defense lawyer can help you fight the charges and avoid the maximum penalties in terms of points and fines.
