If you were ticketed for speeding in New York you are now facing hundreds of dollars worth of fines and surcharges, not to mention potential DMV penalties. Below is a list of all the possible speeding charges ordered by their respective Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL) Sections.

You can identify the VTL section you’re facing by looking at your speeding ticket under the part that says “section sub section”. You can also take a look at your supporting deposition (if one was issued to you).  If you are a Canadian resident who has received a speeding ticket in New York read our Speeding ticket FAQ for Quebec or Ontario drivers.

List of New York Speeding Ticket Points

In order to determine how many points are associated with your ticket, note how many miles over the speed limit the officer said you were going. Then, use this table to determine your points and fines. Next, call our office immediately for a free consult at: 1-888-883-5529. If you already have points on your license, have a CDL license or a Junior License, the penalties can be even more severe.

New York Speeding Ticket Point Table

  • 1-10 miles an hour over the speed limit =  3 points.
  • 11-20 miles per hour over the speed limit = 4 points.
  • 21-30 miles per hour over the speed limit =  6 points*.
  • 31-40 miles per hour over the speed limit = 8 points*
  • 41 mph + over the speed limit = 11 points*.
  • 11 points means that your license will be suspended.
*If you receive 6 or more points you may be subject to an additional fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment (DRA).

The DRA is a separate fine charged to you when you reach 6 points against your license in New York.  At 6 points you will be fined $100 each year for 3 years.  Each point that you get over 6 points is an additional $25 a year for 3 years.

How Much Will My Speeding Ticket Cost?

In addition to the DRA (where applicable), every speeding ticket carries a potential court fine and mandatory New York State surcharge. Use the table below to determine the fine associated with your ticket. Note that these fines are for first offenses. If this is your second offense or greater, the fines could be higher.

Should I Fight My Speeding Ticket or Plead Guilty and Pay the Fine?

In most cases, it is NOT a good idea to plead guilty to the charge. Instead you can plead not guilty and fight your ticket!  Police officers and prosecutors want you to plead guilty to speeding charges because it makes their job very easy.  Pleading guilty means you give up your rights to a trial and you automatically have to pay fines, take points on your license and pay higher insurance rates.

Download the How to Fight a New York Speeding Ticket EbookPleading guilty means you throw in the towel and give up your right to fight and potentially avoid the damaging consequences of a speeding ticket when in reality you are innocent until proven guilty.  In many cases, an attorney can get you a dismissal (all charges are dropped and without fines or penalties) or a reduction in fines and points.  Here are some reasons why you should fight your speeding ticket:

  • Excessive Fines & Surcharges
  • Points on your license
  • Higher Insurance Premiums
  • Possible License Suspension & Revocation
  • Possible State Fines –  New York Driver Responsibility Assessment
  • Loss of your job (if a valid driver’s license or CDL is required)

    Hello,

    Received a speeding ticket yesterday for driving 70 on a 55 MPH zone in Steuben County, NY from NY State police. How much will be the total Fines if I Plea guilty ?
    They have not mentioned any fines on the big paper the officer gave me.
    I would like to know if any fines can be reduced based on my driving history and in the end whether I will spend less by hiring you guys.
    Please let me know.
    Thanks.

  2. kaley kuczek

    HI! I was just given a ticket for going 86 in a 45 and I already know I will have to pay a lot of fines but I was wondering if my license for sure will be suspended and for how long if it does. thank you!

  3. Jay

    I got a speeding ticket. Showing me that I was 50mph at 30mph zone. I live in syracuse. How much for the attorney fee and what can you do with it?

  4. Sonny

    My wife got her first ticket for “speeding in zone”. She was doing 81 in a 65 on I-90. The court is Pembroke town court. Please suggest our options if we pleade guilty and not guilty. Thanks

  5. Kelly

    We are from CT and were driving back from Canada Tuesday night. We had the Garmin GPS on our dash to navigate. We were on I90 East, going 65 which is what the speed limit was, and in a crowd of other cars, came upon a “work zone”, where the sign said 55 and right after that there was a trooper. No one had time to lower the speed to 55 because it just came up on us and the trooper was sitting in the dark right after the speed limit change. He pulled us over and told us he clocked us at 74 in a work zone. Now we know this is not true, it was dark so we were doing the speed limit because we know how NY state is with traffic tickets. We were going with the flow of traffic and other people passed us before the trooper pulled us over. I really don’t see this as fair because there were other faster drivers, NY drivers (we were the only out of state ones), we were doing the posted speed limit and there was no actual construction, just barrels up, a speed limit change sign and a trooper waiting to catch someone. We ware planning on sending the ticket in Not Guilty, is there anything else we can do?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Yes, we can fight it for you and get points reduced and also try to get it out of the work zone so there is no risk that you lose your NY driving privileges. Contact us for more details.

  6. Nicole

    This morning I was driving to school in Poughkeepsie.. And I got pulled over for doing 41 in a 25 (16 over). I was daydreaming, I’ll admit and wasn’t paying attention. What are the possible points and fines?

  7. Danielle

    About 2 months ago I received a ticket for 86 in a 55 mph zone. I understand 31+ is excessive speed. Is there any way I could fight this case? My hearing is at the Rochester traffic violations bureau and I heard from a lot of my family who are all within law enforcement that the bureau is known to not reduce tickets at all.

  8. Morgan Shott

    Hi there, I am from Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Got a speeding ticket in NY State ( west seneca ), pleaded guilty by faxing in the form. I was going 77 in a 55, got a $290 ticket, and have to pay the fee of $300 to the state of NY on top of that. Wondering if there is any way to reverse this? Do I have to pay the $300 fee if I am from Canada?
    Thanks so much!

  9. josiemar deer

    I’m 17 and I got a ticket for doing 57 in a 30 mile zone in brooklyn.I sent the ticket in and pleaded not guilty but theres no plea bargain for tvb….Can you tell me my options

  10. Erin

    My husband received a speeding ticket for traveling 89 in a 65 in Rochester. I already sent in the guilty plea figuring we would pay a fee. I was shocked to see the fee is $350 and he just received the driver assessment for $450. Is there anyway to reverse his guilty plea?

  11. Jon Sproll

    I got a ticket for going 72 in a 55 work zone but I was going with flow of traffic and they pulled over 2 cars that were in front of me what are you suggesting I do and what do you expect I get?
    Thanks Jon

  12. Jack Barton

    I got a ticket for 57 in a 40 zone (speed in the area was reduced due to detouring – no construction in the area) by Potsdam Police. Are the fines the same? Points? And are tickets from Potsdam “shared” with Ontario authorities?

    Any point in fighting this? Feel free to email me directly.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

  13. Fahri Ercem

    I’ve received ticket by NY State Police in the I-84 driving 90 on 65miles zone. Ticket indicates that charge based on officer’s direct observation and verified by radar. I live in Boston and have MA license. Should I plead guilty or not guilty in terms of cost and benefit? Do I have to go to court and are there any benefits for me to plead not guilty etc… Please any suggestion for which direction should I follow?
    Thanks in advance, -Fahri

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Fahri, If you plead guilty you’d get 6 points and a maximum penalty of $693 so I’d suggest you contact us so we can tell you how we can save you points and money. Please call us at your convenience.

    i received a speeding ticket in Buffalo, 76 in a 55 zone. paid the fine and now have received a notice to pay an additional $300 for driver responsibility assessment. it says if I dont pay my NYS license will be suspended. I only have an Ontario license. Do i have to pay this?
    Thanks Sue

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Yes, you have to pay it. If you don’t, they will suspend your NY driving privileges and if you get caught driving in NY you can get arrested. More than that, the suspension can transfer to Canada.

  15. Kenny

    Hi this morning i did a 81 in a 55 to pass a group of cars to get into an exit, theres a 203 fine for speeding but i do no believe i went to 80. Should i plead not guilty? Do i have to pay more fees if i do plead not guilty?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You should not plead guilty because you will be hit with 6 points and a potential for $693 in fines. Please contact our offices for more information. 888-883-5529.

  16. Adam

    On 9/11/13 I received a speeding ticket for doing 48mph in a 20mph school zone. I plead guilty on the ticket, but I haven’t sent it in yet. What will I be facing? Is there anyway this could be fought? What is the cost for your services?

  17. Mike

    Hi,
    I am a Canadian resident. I was driving in Buffalo last weekend with a Canadian driving license and a car. Unfortunately I took a left turn where it was not allowed and I was caught by an officer. After talking to me, the officer gave me a ticket for placing my GPS on the front windshield for the reason the ”driver’s view obstructed”. He did not mention anything about fines and demerit points. I am wondering if it will have any demerit points or no. And how much fines I should be looking at? Can I fight it or no?

  18. Seb

    I received a speeding ticket. 86 in a 65 in saratoga county. Is there any chance this could be fought?

  19. r

    I got a speeding ticket 80 in a 55, and a seatbelt violation ticket, I know I am looking at a suspension, but how can you fight that, is there any chance my license will not get suspended?? Is there any chance of reductions if I plea guilty?? Also im a PA resident if that makes a difference.

  20. Leo

    Hi , I received a ticket for speed not reasonable and prudent for doing a silly burnout in an empty parking lot. My main question is can the officer raise the charge to a misdemeanor if I plea not guilty. He told me if I didn’t plea guilty he was going to raise the charge since he already gave me my break ???

  21. d

  24. Shun

    Hi,
    I got a speeding ticket (1180D) on July 4 on I87 in Woodbury (N/B 49). It was a 65 mph zone and I was charged for 80 mph. In the additional information of the supporting deposition section, the officer wrote: 86 mph at 1370 ft , slowed to 80 mph. I hold a NJ driver license and it is my first ticket for the last 10 year (very clean NJ record). If I plead guilty, what is the fine? And will it increase my insurance? If I plead not guilty and hire a lawyer to fight, will I save any money? I don’t drive to NY very often.
    The ticket mentions that I have to mail this NOT GUILTY plea within 48 hours. The court will notify me by First Class Mail of my appearance date. Do I need to do it if I hire a lawyer to represent me? Thanks
    Shun

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hello Shun,
      You are looking at a 4 point ticket that carries a max fine of $300 and an $85 surcharge. I would recommend fighting the ticket and getting a better result. It’s important to keep both your record clean and insurance rates low. You can call me at 888-883-5529.

    Visitors from UK driving through upstate NY in a hire car, my wife got a ticket for 80 in 65 zone (laser). It was the first time she had driven the car. Trooper told her best to plead not guilty.

    I got pulled over by a state trooper on 20/june. I was going 53 in a 40MPH. The cop wrote me a summons. I mailed it in immidiatley pleading guilty. I just recived my fine in the mail -250$ for going 54 in a 40. ( even though the cop wrote me a ticket for going 13 over. Not 14) The problem Is ive tried calling the court house many times, and even tried to find it. I can not find it nor are they answering their phone. Advice? & What are some ways I can get points off my liscence?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Once you plead guilty the only avenue to “get points off your license” is to have a lawyer do a Motion to Vacate. You can contact us if you are interested in hiring us to do so.

  27. Claire

    I received a ticket for going 80 in a 65 (NYS thruway). The court I’m supposed to appear at is over 3 hours away from where I live; it simply isn’t feasible to go to court. Is there any way to plead not guilty without going to court?

  28. John Heilig

    Hello,

    My girlfriend Alison, was driving today and got her first ticket! The cop caught her doing a 40mph in a 15mph “school zone”. She has only had her license for about 3 weeks. What are my options? What is the worst case?

    Driving from Cincinnati to Maine we were stopped by a NY state trooper. Said we were driving 76 in a 55 in a group of cars. In a comstruction zone. My wife was driving. My wife has not had a ticket in many years and is a safe driver. Ticket is looking to be close to 400$. He put that babies were in car. What are my options. I’m sure the safty in the way he-pulled us over and how he acted does not matter.

  32. Naomi Lantz

    Was out of town for soccer tournament- Just pulled out from hotel and hadn’t put seatbelt on yet (seatbelt reminder hadn’t gone off yet). State trooper waiting for me and pulled me over, I didn’t realize it was a primary offense. Also couldn’t produce reg paper- so another ticket. reg sticker was affixed and correct reg exp date was on ticket- pled not guilty to nonregist ticket. Court sent me back bill saying here are your fines and surcharges for both your guilty pleas?!?

    Thank you concerned Mom

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Victoria,
      I know you are concerned about your son’s speeding ticket. What you need to understand is that young drivers that get speeding tickets can be paying a lot more than the fine listed on the ticket. Insurance companies see this type of violation as a red flag and can increase your insurance rates for 3-4 years. Give us a call at 1-888-883-5529 to see how we can help you fight the ticket and keep your son’s record clean and keep the insurance rates low.

  37. James E. Miller

    I was giving a speeding ticket for doing 102 in a 55 mile zone. The State Trooper that pulled me over said that I was speeding but never clocked me on a radar or pace me . He said a unmarked car paced me at 102 for 3 miles . I know for a fact I wasn’t driving that speed , I don’t understand why a unmarked car didn’t pull me over if I was speeding . I know that it wasn’t a unmarked car behind me because at one point a Red BMW came out of nowhere speeding up on the back of me and tailgates me down the highway and the state troop was waiting down the highway on the shoulder waiting for me . Out of the 8 cars around me , I was the vehicle that got pulled over. I know that the guy in the red BMW called the trooper. The guy in the red BMW was talking on his phone and he probably was mad because I cut in front of him on the highway because he was driving very slow and talking on his phone. When the trooper issued me the ticket, It never said that I was clocked but radar or laser and it didn’t say that he pace me . The ticket said reason and the trooper put ” Facts and Belief ” that is very strange to me. I am currently waiting to go to trial in Chester , New York. Any advise for fighting this claim of speeding.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      James,

    Hi There!
    I have an interesting situation. I am a Canadian and I was in the US this weekend and more specifically New York and New Jersey. I was driving through Avoca NY and I made a stupid mistake/assumption about the speedometer. You see, first off I don’t generally drive (I’m from Toronto, a big city where I often take transit ) I was in a rental car and although I don’t drive all the time, I do rent cars quite a bit and I am a very careful and aware driver. I was on Interstate 390S, which is a 65 zone and I was doing 80. Stupidly, in my head I was thinking i was doing 15 KM over instead of Miles as we deal in Kilometres in Canada. 15 Kilometres is roughly 7 Miles. But 15 Miles is around 30 Kilometres. In my head i was thinking “In Canada, our highway speed limits are 100km/hr and I would generally do 115km/hr to keep with the flow of traffic. So I thought “Here is 65 so I will do 80” (15 more).
    I know it was a bad oversight at the time but I really didn’t realize. Even when I got pulled over by the State Trooper – and pulled off to the left instead of the right (something he let go thankfully), I didn’t understand the gravity of the situation (15miles being alot major than I thought), and when he asked why he pulled me over I said “I think I was speeding” in which he responded “YOU THINK?”
    Now – I am left with a ticket that I have to fill out (Guilty I presume – as I can’t show up in court via Skype to my knowledge) and wait for the fee and demerit points. I really need some insight here as to how I should proceed…. I am very worried that this is going to affect me quite negatively and although I am not denying that I was speeding, I can’t help but feel innocent as I did not realize what was going on.

    Thanks!

    I received a 18mph over doing 83 in a 65 on I87 in Saratoga county. On the ticket the sub section 1180D. I was wondering on the ticket it says my registration expires on 6/30/2013, the sticker on my plate is 6/30/2015. So I am wondering how much would it cost to have this taken care of. Looking forward to a reply. What are y options I have to ensure that the ticket is sent back before June 11, 2013.

    Last year I got a speeding ticket (70 in 55)…a year later I got nabbed again, but the cop gave me an obstructed view ticket instead saying it was no points…I thanked him, plead, and paid the fine…now I am getting a drivers assessment statement looking for $300 from the DMV and it has the obstruction ticket as a 2 point offense…is this correct and if so any way to avoid this???
    Thanks

    hi,
    I’m going to traffic court tomorrow for speeding 95 in a 55 in Suffolk county. I know for a fact that I wasn’t going 95 but I’m only 17 years old so it’s my word against theirs. I’m going to try pleading not quilts but how many points will I likely end up with on my license?

  42. Angelo

    Hello I Just received a ticket for 74 in 40 in a constrution zone on the Staten Island expressway at 3:10am in the morning coming home from work. I did not see any construction zone signs up or any indication that work was being done in that section of the highway. There aren’t even cones. What are my options?

  43. Sophie Ye

    Hello, I’m commenting regarding my fathers traffic ticket. (I’m 16 and my English isn’t that good!)

    My father had recently received a ticket for speeding in a work zone. It says that he was going 75 mph in a 40 mph zone. It was 1:30 am..; which I believe that there wouldn’t be any workers working during 1 a.m.? (Not sure if work zone meant that people are constructing the roads.)

    In the back of the ticket, it says that if you were 21-30 mph over speed limit in a work zone, you’re required to pay $360. It also says that you have to add a mandatory $60 surcharge and $20 fee… Do I need to pay that? Is the total $480?

    Also, my dad is currently unemployed, our income is not balanced with the outcome, we need my grand parents help in order to pay bills. Our only income source is from my mom, which she doesn’t get paid a lot.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Sophie,
      I’m sorry to hear about your father’s traffic ticket. Unfortunately the fines and penalties are really high for speeding tickets in New York. If your father was traveling between 21-30 over the speed limit it carries about a $435 fine/surcharge fee. That is also a 6 point ticket that carries an additional $300 to be paid to the DMV for the Driver Responsibility Program. You should give us a call for a free consultation so we can let you know how to fight this case and save your family money with fines/surcharges and insurance premiums. Call today at 888-883-5529.

  44. Nicholas Langer

    Hi, I just got pulled over. I was going 79 in a 55. It was in Armonk, NY. Do you know how much the ticket will cost or what I can do?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Nicholas,
      You are being charged with a 6 point ticket that carries a fine of $300 and an $85 surcharge. 6 points on your license will also result in the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment fine of $100/year for 3 years. $685 in fines and surcharges all together but if you hire our firm we can get a reduction on the points and fines, guaranteed! Call today at 888-883-5529 for a free consultation.

    I received a speeding ticket going 50 in a 30 in zone in Brooklyn, ny. however, it was in august of 2012 and school year was over so no classes were in session. I noticed that the intersection on where i was pulled over was spelled incorrectly. do i have any shot of perhaps getting it dismissed? This is my first offense and I have been driving for 10 years with no driviing record. I plead not guilty and plan on fighting it!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      An incorrect spelling is almost never grounds for dismissal. This is Traffic Violations Bureau so your case will have to go to trial if you want a chance at avoiding the 4 points. Call me if you want to discuss. -Adam

  49. Ryan

    Hi, I am a NJ resident who received a speeding ticket of 92 mph in a 65 zone, which is an 1180D. I know that If I plead guilty, I will have to pay the fee of 300 dollars for the speed, 85-100 dollars for the court fees, and an additional 100 dollars a year for the next three. I have had a clean driving record for the last 2 1/2 years and never anything in NY. After speaking with a different attorney, he informed me that the court could move to suspend my license, which due to the This doesn’t seem correct, and just wanted a second opinion.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Under VTL 510, any judge in NYS has the power to suspend a driver’s license. I think that it is unlikely especially if you have good quality representation. Feel free to contact me to discuss your case in greater detail.

    I got a ticket this past saturday morning in monroe county. I was in town for my wedding on saturday (4.13.13). I had just picked up a rental suburban as a surprise for my bride so we’d have something nice to drive in, and I was running late to get to her parents house where we were all getting ready. I was so focused and worried about the wedding that I was oblivious to the suburban and didn’t realize how fast I was going. I thought I was going low 70s and the officer listed me at 80. After he issued the citation he inquired why i was in town, and when i said for my wedding at 2pm at the genesee yacht club he said he wished he knew that earlier as he knew how stressful it could be, as he’s been married 17 years. advice?

  54. Margie

    I foolishly plead guilty to a speeding ticket ( just wanted to get it over with quikly by mail) was convicted paid the $175.00 fine and thought that would be the end of it. Instead I recieved a notice from DMV that my licence will be suspeneded for 60 days and I will have to pay an additional $75 for a restricted licence and $35 to lift my suspension. In addition I am pretty sure my insurance will increase and I will have points on my licence. All because I just wanted to get my granddaughter to the “potty” I was only passing another car the officer said I was going 80 in a 65mile zone. I have been driving on and off for over 30 Years but this was the first 6 months with a new licence. I had my permit for years without so much as a blink in my direction from a police officer. Is it to late to fix this mess?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Margie,

      First we would have to make a Motion to Vacate the guilty plea but whether we can do it or what our chances are depends on the court and the charges. Which court handled your ticket and what was the speed they said you were going and the speed limit?

      Best,

  56. bo

    My little brother got yanked by a troop in dec of 2011 for speed. The troop wrote him an equipment violation referencing the speedodometer not workin (when it was) rather than a speed violation so here we have a reduction of a violation rather than the most appropriate charge. He requested a hearing and the hearing was not set until May 2013- over a year and a half later. Is this a violation of his due process right to a speedy trial?. Is it worth me hiring an attorney for him? Thanks.

  57. Tricia

    I am an Ontario driver and have been charged with doing 81mph in a 65 zone when Eastbound on the 1-90 in the town of Farmington, NY.

Today, april 6th, I got another speeding ticket (81 in a 55 zone) and I am aware of the fines and points I will be given, but because both tickets were less than a year apart and I am under 21 (I am 19 years old) will my license get suspended?

    So I got a 82 in a 50 speeding ticket in Queens County. The cop noted I had my 2 year old in the car. I was told I should seek assistance, but am worried of spending the money for an attorney since the City doesn’t plea. How much would it be total for a ticket like that? If I fight it, could they use my daughter against me and get me for reckless endangerment?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Kevin,
      You are being charged with going 32 miles over the speed limit which is a 8 point ticket and a $600 fine plus an $85 surcharge. Call us directly to discuss how we can help you fight your ticket and also to discuss the issues regarding your daughter at 888-883-5529. Although Queens TVB does not take plea bargains we can still fight this ticket and lower the fines and penalties in trial. Remember also that pleading guilty to an 8 point violation will result in an additional for $450 in fines for the DMV driver responsibility assessment (over 3 years) and you will be dangerously close to facing a license suspension moving forward. There are options available to you Kevin and I’m looking forward to discussing them with you. For more information on speeding tickets please check here.

    My post from this afternoon seems to be missing so here we go again.

    Received “Driver’s View Obstructed” (Section Sub Section: 37530) in Sullivan County, NY on Rt 17. Officer stated he was writing citation due to seeing childs toy loaded in back of car right inside rear hatch window of SUV. Toy was only a few inches wider than the headrest in the seat right in front of it.
    Vehicle does have two working and correctly aimed outside mirrors so I did have full unobstructive view behind vehicle using them.

    Is this a points ticket? Should I fight it?

  63. Rob

    Received ticket for “drivers view obstructed” (Section sub section 375-30) on Rte 17 in Roscoe, NY due to childs toy in rear of SUV by rear hatch window. Vehicle has two outside mirrors which had no obstructed view. Officer explained ticket to me and said ticket would be minor fine and no points. Is this correct? fight it or just send it in and then pay it?

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Rob,
      Section 375-30 Driver’s view obstructed carries a $150 fine and an $85 surcharge. The officer is right that there is no points to the ticket. You can possible fight to have the fine reduced in court or you can just pay the ticket, its your decision. Hope this helps!

    I got a speeding ticket in ny. I was over 28 mph on the 30 speeding zone and I got 1108D. Now I dont know how much will be the fine and how many point will they take from me?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Baheer,
      You have been charged with a 6 point ticket that carries a $300 fine and an $85 surcharge. In addition the state of New York can fine you the DMV Driver’s Responsibility Assessment which is $100 per year over 3 years. Also VA and New York are members of the driver’s license compact and will communicate traffic violation matters between each other, this can result in points against your VA license.

    I am from NJ and recieved a ticket for doing 70 in a 65 on 684. From what I found, this is a 3 point ticket in NY and a 2 points on my NJ license. I know my insurance will not go up, but will there be any surcharges to the NJ DMV?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Steven,
      When 2 points are transferring to New Jersey you will not be fined a separate surcharge. States are not allowed to fine you twice for the same offense. For more information on New Jersey traffic tickets click here.

    Hi, I got a ticket going 90 in a 65 zone and 30 min later, I got an another ticket going 82 in a 65 zone. those officers were from different town, so I have to go to different court to attend hearing. I do not have NYS drivers license, but it was my car that i was driving.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Nick,
      I guess when it rains it pours. The first speeding ticket 90/65 is 6 points, $300 fine and $85 surcharge. The second is 4 points, also $300 fine and $85 surcharge. You are very close to losing your driving privileges in NY as well (11 points for suspension). There are several questions that need to be addressed for your court cases so I would recommend that you give us a ring at 888-883-5529 so we can give you a free consultation. In addition to the fines you will also be paying a separate DMV driver responsibility assessment fee to NY (10 points is $600 fine paid out over 3 years). We can help you fight these tickets and save you hundreds in excessive fines, fees and possible insurance rate increases. See what kind of work we do by visiting our reviews page here.

    Hi, I have been driving for 20 years and today I got my first ticket. I was caught doing 40 in a 15 mile school zone. I wasn’t even aware that the building was still being used as a school I thought it was vacant. Anyway, the ticket was directed to lake grove village court and I need to appear in person.

    I usually phone however it is frowned upon at work.

My initial appearance is on 03-18-13 at 900 am. I intend to plead not guilty and request a trial date so I can fight this with an attorney. I would like to know your fees. Thank you for your help.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    I got a ticket that was originally for speeding but the officer gave me it for a dirty licence plate.. I don’t have much money so should I just plead guilty or go into court and have to pay the fines plus the court surcharge? Would I have to pay a court surcharge if I sent the ticket in and plead guilty?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You should contact the court and ask what your fine is for this case. Any surcharge that is added onto a traffic ticket is mandatory and is attached regardless whether you pay your ticket by mail or go to court. You may be able to fight to have the fine or penalty reduced in court. For more information about our firm please visit our website at http://www.ticketdefenselaw.com

    Hello, I got a ticket for going 41mph in a 30mph zone and got charged with 1180D. I was driving my friend home and he was giving me directions when I got pulled over. There were no recent signs (except for one that was further up the road) indicating the 30mph speed limit and I have no marks or points on my license what so ever. I sent the ticket in not-guilty and was offered a plea bargain for a 1110A, but still don’t think I deserve points on my license, do you think it’s worth going to trial?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Sally,

    I was pulled over in the driveway to work. I’m a school bid driver. I passed the officer as I was coming in and he then turned around and followed me in,pulling me over. He said I was doing 35 in a 20 school zone. 1180c. Is it true I will have to do jail time and lose my cdl? I sent my ticket in not guilty. As I feel it wasn’t me he triggered.

    Thank you

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Christina,

      Hi Megan,
      You are being charged with a 4 point speeding ticket, which is a $300 fine and an $85 surcharge. If you get 6 points on your license you will be required to pay the DMV fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment at $100 a year for 3 years. The fines listed above does not take into account what affect this ticket can have on your insurance.

      The good news is that we can help you fight this ticket and get you a more favorable outcome. A negotiation/settlement will also avoid the fact that the officer took down your statement since we will reach an agreement before his testimony will come into play during trial. The best part is that you will not be required to go to court if you hire an attorney to represent you. We can help you fight this ticket and save you hundreds in fines and insurance rate increases. Please call me for a free consultation over the phone at 888-883-5529.

    Hi. I was pulled over today in Middletown NY going 79 in a 65. I am a resident of NJ. Do points carry over to my state, and what type of fines am I looking at. The only thing that I can see that I may be able to fight is that he wrote the car is black. My car is clearly a light blue. Is this worth my time to fight, or get a lawyer, or will I still most likely receive 4 points and the fines? Thank you for your time.

    Is there a maximum legal surcharge on a speeding ticket in NY state. $200 ticket with an $850 surcharge seems excessive (going 88 in a 65 zone)

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      James,

      The surcharge is $85 not $850. If you would like to fight your ticket and same money on your fines and reduce the points on your license give us a ring a 888-883-5529.

  79. Erik

    HI i just got a driver responsibly statement saying i owe the dmv $825 from ticket i received in 2006. Is there any way to fight this or get it lowered, it’s a little ridiculous that im getting this 7 years after the fact.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Erik,
      Unfortunately if you have 6 points or more in New York you are charged with the Driver’s Responsibility Assessment which is issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. I would contact the NY’s DMV for more information about the fines and why you are getting the notice late. After you plead guilty to a charge and have 6 points or more the DMV charges you $100/yr for 3 years. For each point you have over 6 they charge an additional $25. For more information click here.

    Hello, I was pulled over in Wallkill, NY doing 82 in a 65. 1180D. I was driving from PA. I have never had an accident, or even been pulled over, can I use my clean driving record to fight the ticket? Will this do any good. I have been driving for 8 years. Also in order to use my good riving record, will I need to appear in wallkill town court or can I take care of this from my home?
    Thank you!

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

    I got pulled over going 59 in a 30. I know not feeling well, not knowing it was 30, and not realizing I was going that fast is going to matter. I am just petrified I am going to he my license suspended. The last ticket I received was in 2011- in November. Idkkkk if that was a speeding conviction or it was reduced to a traffic violation…I can’t remember. Anyways- I just want to know if I should hire an attorney or take my chances that the da will lower it. Please provide me good news to put my mind at ease.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The good news is that an experienced traffic attorney can attempt to reduce or dismiss the ticket. Unless you have years of trial experience I would not recommend handling it yourself. Also, the result will depend on which court is handling the case so you might want to call us for a free consultation so we can tell you what an attorney can do for you.

    I received three tickets. Speed not reasonable and prudent. Stop beyond crosswalk and stop line. And when he asked for my liscense registration and insurance by accident i handed him an expired insurance ard but i have current insurance card. Is it worth it to go fight the tickets? What am i looking at in fines and points on my liscense? thank you

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Anthony,
      Speed not reasonable and prudent is NY V&T Law section 1180(a) which is $150 plus an $85 surcharge, with 3 points to your license. The next ticket is a 1151 – (c) Passed stopped vehicle at crosswalk/intersection which is also 3 points and a $150 fine and $85 surcharge. As long as your vehicle was insured and you only failed to produce your card you should be able to have that charge dismissed. The other two tickets are worth fighting because you are looking at 6 points to your license. 6 points means you will be charged the DMV driver responsibility assessment as well ($300 over 3 years). You should call me as soon as possible so I can give you a free consultation over the phone at 1-888-883-5529. We can fight all three tickets for our same low flat fee!

    We got into an accident around Albany, NY during a snow storm when the roads were not plowed very well and we slipped on a patch of ice or something and spun into the median. We were going somewhere between 20-30 MPH, and the cop did not see the accident, but issued us a ticket of 1180 (a) Speed not reasonable and prudent. We live in New Jersey about 3 hours from Albany, so I don’t know if it is worth driving all the way up there to fight it. Does the above information mean that the court fees would be 80-85$ if we go to court? Or do these surcharges apply either way. Also, do the NY points get transferred to my NJ license? And do you think that my insurance rates will increase? Thank you very much for your help.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      The $80/85 surcharge on top of the base fine applies to all tickets but only if you plead guilty or are convicted. I do not advise pleading guilty for several reasons (1) you will likely be hit with the max fine; (2) 2 points will transfer to NJ; (3) your insurance company will hold you responsible for the accident and you insurance will increase (it might increase regardless but pleading guilty to a ticket certainly won’t help); (4) our track record in getting this ticket reduced especially where the officer did not witness the accident is very high; (5) if you hire our firm you will not have to come back for court.

    Hello Adam,

    Received a speeding ticket for going 86 in a 65 last week in Catskill (Greene County). Didn’t admit fault, officer was a nice guy and even made a note on the ticket I was polite and there were no problems. Was wondering what I’m looking at fine-wise and points-wise. Also wondering if there’s any point in possibly going to court (for context I was going 85 to pass a car in the slow lane going about 80, cop was hidden behind a tree on the left side of the road), thanks.

    Also for context: I received a ticket in Framingham, Massachusetts last year (’12) in the beginning of February for going 92 in a 65, pleaded guilty and paid a fine of about $230, from what I’ve read MA tickets don’t seem to affect New York that much but I’d like to hear what it really means from someone who knows this.

    Thanks again

      Hello Henry,
      You are being charged with going 21 miles over the speed limit. It’s a 6 point ticket, $300 fine plus an $85 mandatory surcharge. At 6 points the DMV charges you an additional fine called the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment at $100 a year for 3 years. Your total in fines and surcharges is $685. This total does not take into account the increase to your insurance rates.

      Unfortunately, your argument will not hold up in court about speeding to pass another car going 80 in the slow lane. Essentially you are admitting guilt that you were in fact speeding. Driving over the speed limit is a regulatory offense, which means that if you violate the regulation (driving over 65) than you will be found guilty of the offense. The circumstances and your intentions while driving rarely ever come into play.

      We can help you fight this ticket and save you hundreds in fines and insurance rate increases. Please call me today for a free consultation over the phone at 888-883-5529. For more information on speeding tickets and the DMV driver responsibility assessment click here. – Adam

    I got a speeding ticket on 2/27/1998 71in a 55. I had mailed in and with a guilty plea. The address was very hard to reed but sent it in and it was returned to me about 3/30/1998 marked undliverable by the post office. So I just waited to see if they would send me a notice . I got the notice ON 11/22/2012 14 years later. I returned with a not guilty plea and now have a pre-trial confernce on 01/16/2013. Is there a statute of limitations or any thing I can do?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      No there is no statute of limitations on traffic violations unfortunately. You have to respond to it, or you can hire us to handle it for you so you do not have to go to court. Feel free to contact me directly. -Adam

    I was pulled over yesterday at 8:30 PM on LIE close to Cross Island Expressway exit, leaving the HOV lane. Although I am pretty certain I exited in the designated HOV exit zone, the trooper who pulled me over claimed that I crossed over the hazard markings and issued two tickets: moving unsafely from HOV to left (1128A) and driving over hazard markings (1128D). In addition, another ticked was issued as I had an expired insurance card; my insurance was in effect and I plan to send a signed letter from my insurance company to the Hempstead traffic court. Any advice regarding my chances in fighting these tickets? Appreciate any advice you could give me.

    1. Adam Rosenblum

      Hi Dave,
      Sorry to hear about the tickets you received last week. These violations carry heavy fines and consequences. First, the moved from lane unsafely charge [1128(a)] has a $150 fine, 3 points to your license and an $85 mandatory NY State surcharge. The second charge, Drove across hazardous markings [1128(a)] carries a $150 fine and 3 points along with the $85 surcharge.

      6 points to your license means that you also will pay a DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment which is $100/year for 3 years. (Each point over 6, is an additional $25/year for 3 years. These consequences do not take into account the affect it can have on your insurance rates.

      Unfortunately the penalties are pretty tough, but we can help you fight your ticket as there are options available to you. Please call us today at 1-888-883-5529, we can give you a free consultation over the phone. Here is more information on Unsafe lane change and driving without insurance.

    Received a speeding ticket for going 65 in a 30 mph zone. What are my options if any? It was on an expressway that for 3 mile has the limit at 45 and the last half mile or so, it converts to 30. Any help/advice would be gladly appreciated. This happened in brooklyn ny

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Hi Nelson,
      You are being charged with going 35 MPH over the speed limit. That charge means 8 points to your license, a $600 fine and an $85 mandatory NYS surcharge. In addition you will be paying another penalty called the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment which in your case at 8 points will be $150 per year for 3 years. This does not take into account the affect it will have on your insurance. Unfortunately the penalties are pretty tough, but we can help you fight your ticket as there are options available to you.

    I got a speeding ticket in broom county going to 74 in a 55 zone. The office was a real d-bag and I would like to fight this speeding ticket and get it reduced to a no point traffic violation, possible something like a parking ticket. What are my chances in fighting the ticket? and what how much do you charge?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You are being charged with going 19mph over the speed limit that mean you are be fined $385 and you will get 4 points on your New York state license.

  91. Jerry

    i got a speeding ticket in clifton park NY. I was going 89 in a 65 zone. I don’t think it was a construction zone but the office marked it as so. What are the fines and points I am looking at and is there anyway I can fight this ticket?

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      Jerry it is going to be very hard to prove that you were not inside a construction zone. If you convicted of going 24 mph over the speed limit you will be looking at $385 is fines and 6 points on your license. I would highly suggest you hire a lawyer to fight on your behalf. If you were in a work zone you can be charged with VTL 1180f which means the total fine will double to $772.

      Here is more information about construction zone tickets

  92. Mark

    I was going 85 in a 65 zone to get back to school on time. When the officer pulled me over he was nice about it and reduced my speed to 70 on the ticket. Should I plead guilty or plead not guilty? On the back of the ticket it still says I was going 85.

    1. Adam Rosenblum Post author

      You are being charged with going 20 mph over the speed limit which means you will be fined $385 and you will get 4 points on your New York state license.
