Don’t Go it Alone
In the State of New York, if a driver accumulates 11 or more motor vehicle violation “points” on their license in one 18-month period of time, they risk having their driving privileges suspended. High-speed traffic tickets are a big deal in this regard since points add up quickly:
- If you are caught driving 11-20 mph over the speed limit, you will have 4 points added to your license
- 21-30 mph over the speed limit – 6 points
- 31-40 mph over the speed limit – 8 points
- Over 40 mph over the speed limit – 11 points
If you have your license suspended, expect to be hit with a Driver Assessment Fee as well.
Perhaps the biggest issue associated with high-speed tickets is how stiff the financial penalties can end up being. Not only will you pay a fine for speeding, but you will also likely have to pay increased insurance premiums for up to three years.An Experienced High-Speed Traffic Ticket Lawyer can Save You Money
