What are the consequences of receiving a speeding ticket in New York?
The consequences of a speeding ticket will depend on New York’s point system that is determined by the speed the motorist was going at the time of the traffic violation. The point system in New York for speeding tickets 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
When a driver receives points on their license, they may also face high fines as well as their insurance premiums being impacted. High insurance premiums can last from months to years. Motorists may also risk having their license suspended if they received 11 points within an 18 month period.
