What happens if I get a speeding ticket in New York?
Almost all of us get at least one speeding ticket in our lives. Unfortunately, because of this, many people make the mistake of not retaining legal assistance after receiving a speeding ticket. However, the truth is, the ramifications of a speeding ticket can affect you for years to come, especially if you receive more than one speeding ticket in your lifetime. Furthermore, the speed at which you were traveling at the time you were pulled over also plays a large part in determining the consequences for the offense. The New York point system for speeding is as follows:
- Driving 1-10 miles per hour over the speed limit: 3-point violation.
- Driving 11-20 miles per hour over the speed limit: 4-point violation.
- Driving 21-30 miles per hour over the speed limit: 6-point violation.
- Driving 31-40 miles per hour over the speed limit: 8-point violation.
- Exceeding 41 miles per hour over the speed limit: 11-point violation.
Speeding tickets come with very serious penalties. While you will have to pay an initial fine, this is not the worst of it–you will most likely also have your insurance premiums skyrocket when you obtain points on your license, meaning you will face the consequences of your speeding ticket for years to come. In the worst cases, some individuals even have had their licenses suspended or revoked. Our firm can help fight these charges on your behalf.
