You receive points on your license each time you get convicted on a speeding ticket. If you get enough points, your driver’s license will be suspended. Even if you do not get enough points for a suspension, your insurance rates can increase dramatically. Also, you will get a civil penalty called the Driver Responsibility Assessment any year that you have 6 points or more on your drivers license. You get a $300 surcharge for the first 6 points, and an extra $75 for each additional point over the six points. The surcharge is payable over three years but failure to make a payment will result in a suspension of your driver’s license or your privilege to operate a motor vehicle in New York.
The surcharges apply even to out-of-state drivers. Often people from Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or other states will pay a fine for a speeding ticket, go home, and then find a notice about the surcharge. They may throw it away, thinking it must be a mistake. Their license to drive in New York will then be suspended, and they could easily get pulled over again and charged with a very serious crime.

If you plead "not guilty" to your ticket, our White Plains traffic ticket attorneys will have many ways to challenge the speeding ticket. For instance, we can peruse the records that the police must keep about the calibration of radar or laser guns. If we find inconsistencies, we can get the speeding ticket thrown out. We can also negotiate a plea that can make sure points are not put on your record.
