What are the consequences of receiving a speeding ticket in New York?
New York has a point system that determines the consequences of a speeding ticket relating to the speed the motorist was going at the time of the traffic violation. The following is the point system in New York State for speeding tickets:
- 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
Individuals may face high fines along with these points on their license. They may also see their insurance premiums have been impacted by these points. These high insurance premiums can last from months to years. If a motorist receives 11 points within an 18 months period, their license may be suspended.
