Most people receive at least one speeding ticket in their lifetime, which is why in many cases, they do not believe that they should hire an attorney to help them fight their tickets. However, doing so may help you greatly in the long run, because upon the judge determining that you are guilty of speeding, you may face a wide array of potential consequences that can drastically affect you for months, or even years to come. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Rockland County traffic violations attorney to learn more about the penalties for speeding tickets in New York and how our firm can help you fight them. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What happens if I receive a speeding ticket in New York?
If you receive a speeding ticket in New York, the first thing you should understand is that you are risking obtaining points on your license. The faster you were going, the more points you will receive. The point system in New York State for speeding tickets is as follows:
- Driving 1-10 miles per hour over the speed limit: A 3-point violation
- Driving 11-20 miles per hour over the speed limit: A 4-point violation
- Driving 21-30 miles per hour over the speed limit: A 6-point violation
- Driving 31-40 miles per hour over the speed limit: An 8-point violation
- Exceeding 41 miles per hour over the speed limit: An 11-point violation
Additionally, if you are found guilty of speeding, you will also face high fines and skyrocketed insurance premiums, as points on your license indicate to insurance companies that you are a liability. These high insurance premiums can last for months, or even years. Furthermore, and perhaps worst of all, if you’ve accumulated a certain number of points over a certain period of time, a speeding ticket may push you over the edge and result in you having your license suspended or revoked.
