Did You Receive a Traffic Ticket in New York?
Whether you are from New York or from out of state and were just passing through, a New York traffic violation conviction can lead to serious consequences. Before you simply plead guilty and pay the ticket, you should consider the consequences of a traffic violation conviction such as:
- Increased insurance rates
- Points on your driver’s license
- Fines and penalties
- Additional charges from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles
- Jail time
A Traffic Violation Conviction Can Have Long-Term Consequences
Even if the charge seems minor, points can accumulate quickly on a driver’s license. After receiving six points on your driver’s license, you will have to pay the driver responsibility assessment (DRA). After receiving 11 points on your driver’s license, you will have your license suspended after a DMV hearing.
