Dutchess County Courts

Have You Been Cited for a Traffic Violation in Dutchess County?

It is upsetting to receive a traffic ticket just facing the short-term consequences of paying the fine specified on the citation. Many drivers do not realize, however, that simply pleading guilty and paying the fine can lead to additional consequences.

If you have a traffic violation on your driving record, you will have points added to your driving record. Once you have six points, you will have to pay a driver responsibility assessment for three years, even if you are from out of state or Canada. Once you have 11 points, your driver’s license will be suspended.

While many drivers do not consider the long-term impact of pleading guilty without fighting the ticket, a New York traffic violation conviction could lead to these additional consequences:

  • Add a negative mark to your driving record, which will show up in background checks
  • If you drive professionally, a traffic violation conviction could harm your career
  • Increased insurance costs
