New York Speeding Ticket Information

If you received a New York speeding ticket, you are now facing points, fines and surcharges, potential DMV penalties, and also increased auto insurance.

How Much Does A Speeding Ticket Cost?

A speeding ticket in New York State costs between $45 and $600. For speeding 1 to 10 mph over the limit the rage is between $45 and $150. For speeding 11 mph to 30 mph, the range is $90 to $300. Finally, for speeding 31 mph or more, the range is $180 to $600.

Every New York speeding ticket carries a court fine, mandatory New York State surcharge and points on your driving record. If you are a repeat offender, the range of fines is significantly higher. The fines listed are for speeding tickets received anywhere in New York State except for the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island).

Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee (DRA): If you receive 6 or more points as a result of violations that occurred within an 18 month period you will be subject to an additional fine known as the Driver Responsibility Assessment fee (DRA). When you reach 6 points you will be penalized $300. An additional $75 will be imposed for each point after the 6-point mark. This penalty is paid to DMV and is separate and in addition to the court fines associated with your ticket.

At 11 points the NY DMV will suspend your NY license or NY driving privileges (if you live out of state). Any points accumulated for violations which occur within a given 18-month period count towards suspension. If you have a CDL license or a Junior license, the penalties can be even more severe.

Speeding Tickets in NYC

drivers in New York CityThe Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) handles traffic tickets in all 5 Boroughs of NYC ( Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island). In the TVB the points are the same but the fine varies depending upon the nature of the violation. In addition, negotiating a settlement or reduction (known as a “plea bargain”) is not permitted (see below).  Read more about NYC Speeding Tickets

How Much Will My Auto Insurance Increase for a Speeding Ticket?

Speeding Ticket Example - New York
Speeding Ticket Example

Simply put, auto insurance is all about risk. You pay an auto insurance premium so that if you get into an auto accident your insurance provider will pay for the damage. An insurance underwriter’s primary role is to determine what your premium should be based on how likely they believe you are to get into an auto accident. The more traffic violations you have on your record, the greater the risk and the higher the premium. If you accumulate enough traffic tickets, your insurance company could even cancel your policy. Studies by sites such as InsuranceQuotes.com have concluded that your NY auto insurance premium can go up as much as 22% for a single speeding ticket.

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. Police officers and prosecutors want you to plead guilty to speeding charges because it makes their job easy. Pleading guilty means you give up your rights to a trial and you automatically have to pay fines, incur points on your license and pay higher auto insurance premiums. Instead of facing these consequences you can choose to plead not guilty and fight your ticket!

In many cases, an attorney can either 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:

  • Significant fines & surcharges
  • Points on your license
  • Increased auto insurance premiums
  • Possible license suspension or revocation
  • DMV Penalties (where applicable) i.e. NY Driver Responsibility Assessment
  • Loss of your employment (if a valid driver’s license or CDL is required)

Will a New York Speeding Ticket Affect Me if I Live in a Different State?

Out of state drivers are subject to the same fines and surcharges as a NY driver. If a driver fails to pay these fines, NY will suspend his or her NY driving privileges and that individual will be barred from driving in NY during that period of suspension or revocation. In addition, the suspension will be reported to the driver’s home state which can also trigger a license suspension from your state DMV.  In addition, many states will list out of state convictions (i.e. those that occurred in NY) and assess their own respective points and penalties.  Sharing of information between states can therefore result in increased auto insurance rates.  Thus, in most cases it is more advantageous to fight a New York speeding ticket even if the driver lives in a different state.

How to Fight a New York Speeding Ticket Without a Lawyer:

how to fight speeding ticket in NY ebookHow a New York speeding ticket is typically handled depends on the jurisdiction (where you received the violation). Since the process of fighting a speeding ticket can be more complex than meets the eye, we strongly recommend that you hire an experienced lawyer to handle your case. Call us at 1-888-434-0406 for a free consult.

Speeding Tickets in any Location Except NYC

If you received a speeding ticket in any location other than NYC, your ticket will be handled by a city, town or village court. The name and address of that court is listed at the bottom of the ticket (see example here). If you want to fight your ticket, you have to enter a plea of “Not Guilty” by filling out that portion of the ticket and mailing it to the court. The court will mail you a pre-trial conference notice on which to appear and discuss your case with the prosecutor to see if you can agree on a settlement. Note, a prosecutor is not required to offer you a deal and may offer you a less favorable deal if you are not represented by an attorney. Remember, attorneys (like the prosecutor) are skilled negotiators. You also have the right to reject any settlement you are offered and have a trial. The trial will most likely be held on a second or third court date (this means you will have to appear in court more than once). At the trial the police officer will present testimony to support his case. You have the right to question or “cross-examine” the officer. The judge will make a ruling of innocence or guilt. If you are found “not guilty” you will not be required to pay any fines and you won’t get points. If you are found guilty you will get the full amount of points and be required to pay a fine.

Speeding Tickets in NYC

In New York City the tribunal handling your ticket is called the Traffic Violations Bureau or “TVB” (except in a criminal case like DWI or reckless driving – those are handled by the criminal court). In the TVB there are no settlements or plea bargains so if you want to fight your ticket, the only way to do so is to have a trial. Trials are tricky business and best handled by an experienced attorney who knows how to ask the right questions and make the best legal arguments in your favor.

  9. Hi, we were around steuben county, and in the left lane when a unmarked police vehicle started to ride our tail aggressively. As a result, we sped up so we could merge onto the right lane away from him. Once in the right lane, he flashed his lights and pulled us over. He clocked us at 86 in a 65 mph zone – we were just previusly in a 70 mph zone. He also then pulled us over near an exit, and once he realized that he did (he realized this maybe 20 seconds into talking to us) he started to berate us for pulling over there – even though that was where he flashed his sirens. He then claimed to have flashed his sirens a mile away – even though we clearly did not see them, nor was he near us. Additionally, a mile away, the speed limit was 70, even though he clocked us in the 65 zone.

  11. Hello,

    I received a speeding ticket today in Chesterfield, NY for going 86 in a 65, so 21 mph over. The fine will be quite incredible but I am not concerned about that. I am concerned about the points. My license is registered in New Jersey but I received this ticket in New York. I am unsure how the point transfer system works between states but this driving offense is worth 6 points in New York and 3 in New Jersey. I am unsure if I should contest this ticket as there was no way I was going 21 over, but at the same time would it just be better to pay the fine and get whatever points and not have to deal with driving almost 5 hours North at some random point next month just to be convicted as guilty and have it all be a huge waste of time?

    1. John – A) I suggest you contest this ticket as it does carry substantial fines ($393), assessment fees ($300), and insurance implications; B) New Jersey will transfer 2 points for any out of state moving violation; C) If you hire an attorney, you will not need to appear in court to fight your ticket.

  12. I’m 16 and got a ticket for going 45 in a 30, I’m not so much as worried with the fines or point, but could I get my license suspended? This is my first ticket and I would only have 4 point but I’m still unsure if it could get taken away

  13. Yesterday i got pulled over for doing 48mph in a 25mph zone, on ny440 in staten island. I was slowing down to exit off a ramp and the cop popped up at the middle of the ramp started flashing a flash light and told me to proceed to the curb on the right, waited there for 10mins until he stopped another vehicle then came up to my window nd said u were speeding license nd registration. On top of that my name is spelled wrong on the summons

  43. Hello,
    I just recently moved to CT right about the same time I received my NYS license. I work in Manhattan 5 days a week and I do a lot of traveling from my home to work. I didn’t have the time to go to the DMV to notify the change of address after I bought the car to do the traveling from and to work. On March 15, 2016 I was stopped on my way to work and given 3 tickets. One for not notifying the DMV for my change of address. The other two the officer claims I was going 93 mph at a 55 mph zone and lost control of my vehicle when switching lanes when he stopped me. I know I was driving at the right speed in a 55mph zone driving at 93mph would mean the officer would have to chase me in order to stop me and give me the ticket. How much would you charge to help me fight these tickets? I just recently received my license and would hate for these tickets to cause me any damaging consequences.

I have to admit, I wasn’t paying attention and didn’t notice how fast I was going After 8 years of driving, this is my first ticket and first offensive ever. What will be the best way to go about this? How many points and what would the cost be? Should I plead not guilty even though I don’t have an excuse that I wasn’t speeding? I don’t want any points on my license since I kept it clean for so long.

  47. I received a speeding ticket yesterday in the city of Utica 78 in a 55. I print my drivers abstract of the dmv website to show I have never received a moving violation I have a clean record. A friends husband has offered to write me a letter to vouch for my character and I plan to plead not guilty and attend the court hearing. Unfortunately I will have to miss work to attend so I’m already out money because of this. How much in fines am I looking at, will it cost me more to pay an attorney than it would just to pay he court surcharges and whatever fine they slap me with. I’m hoping they reduce it to non moving so I don’t have points and my insurance won’t go up.

    1. You are looking at fines of $393, along with a $300 assessment fee. To assure you obtain the best possible result, we suggest seeking the advice of an experienced attorney for your case.

  67. I was pulled over today and given a ticket for 85 in 55 on sunrise hwy, NY, Suffolk county PD jurisdiction. Any luck with these cases? What am I looking at?

  68. I am 17 years old and today (March 5th) I was pulled over for going 76 in a 55. When in reality i was only traveling between 60 and 65 mph following the flow of traffic. Previously before getting onto the highway in which I was pulled over on I had sped up while merging to get onto the highway. Because the drivers to my left were not giving me right of way, even though it is NY state law, I was forced to accelerate in order to avoid an unnecessary colliltion and merge to my left. After changing lanes and merging I returned to the previous speed stated before (between 60-65 mph).
    I did not realize there was an officer behind me and he did not pull me over until following me for approximately 8 minutes while i was close to my home in Ontario, NY . The officer made me aware after pulling me over that I had been going 76 in Webster, NY (the town before mine) and after explaining to him that this is my first ticket and I was avoiding a collision that would have been caused by the drivers to my left not giving me right of way – the officer basically ignored my explanation, told me how to pay the ticket and told me quite rudely not to get in an accident getting back onto the highway.

    – I need my license for transportation to work and because I work with cars I need to be able to drive at work. The officer mercilessly gave me an overkill ticket when he ” supposedly” witnessed the situation play out. I can’t afford to lose my license and am hoping to reduce the fee I will have to pay as much as possible. I am in need of an attorney who can help me with this situation. Any response to my email would be very much appreciated.

  69. My son, 20 years old, got a speeding ticket on I-87 North from a state trooper with a laser gun.
    The court is Town of Wilton, Saratoga County , NY.
    The ticket was for 15 over, 80 miles an hour in a 65 zone. It is his first offense.
    He was passing a car , which had pushed him over a lane, to get to his exit.
    Is this worth your/our time fighting?
    Thank you!

  70. Received a ticket 9/25 from a state trooper on I-90 for 75 in a 65 – he told me he clocked me doing 83 and attests that his distance was 726ft – There were vehicles both in front and behind me, despite him attesting that I was lead car in the middle lane, and I had been going approximately 65 until reaching a vehicle in the right that had rapidly decelerated to take an exit. I changed lanes and within seconds had a pickup truck rapidly approach – I accelerated to compensate and switched lanes back before slowing down. I didn’t exceed 75 but while I was being “clocked” there was a pickup truck with a trailer, that had seconds prior been tailgating me, passing me after returning to my lane.

    I am curious, not specifically what my fine will be, but what the general cost would be to fight the ticket?

  71. hi there, I am UK resident, I stopped by police, recived speeding ticket 86 on the 65 zone, don’t know what should I do?

  73. Hi,

    I’m a New Jersey driver who got a ticket in Harrison, New York for going 65 in a 40 zone. The thing is, I am 100% sure I was not going that fast, especially when I passed the cop. I also do not believe that he clocked me because of the way his car was facing and when I asked him when I did 65 he responded with “when you passed my car”. But, when I passed his car I’m 100% certain that I was going 45. Is there any way to fight this to at least lower the fine or take off some points?

  74. I was traveling 67 mph in a work zone 45 mph in NY state. I have a NJ license. Does the insurance points carry over to NJ? If so, who would like to help me fight this? If not, is it best to just pay the fine and not be caught in NY again?

  75. I got a speed ticket this afternoon in school zone, I play no guilty and send them a note, the officer said that I was go 35mph but he wrote 36mph.Do I need a lower for this? thank you

  76. I going 24 mph over the speed limit of 65. As I know this is a 6 point ticket which has a maximum fine of $393, plus a driver responsibility assessment fee of $300. I responded with plea of guilty and got a letter with just $100 fine and $93 court fee. The letter doesn’t mention any other fees like DRA(which is $300)

    Prior to this ticket my driving history was clean without any kind of violation.

    What might have happened? Whether I have been charged with less fine ?

  77. I have a CT license and got a ticket in NY on I-95 driving 75 in 55 mph zone. Should I plead guilty or fight? I believe, points will not be added for out-of-state violations but how big my fine could be? What are implications for my insurance rates? How much a lawyer can cost for such case?

  78. 9/16/2015 – OGDEN – Monroe County NY
    Speeding in Zone 83 in 65
    Receive deposition at time of citation.
    Recently took Driver Safety Course to reduce Insurance Rates
    Had cruise control on and van in front was going 77 mph based on deposition

  79. I received a ticket 1180A, unreasonable and not prudent speed but a speeding violation was not indicated on the ticket

    The officer indicated my speed was 60 in a 30 that has not effect on the points right since I was not charged with speeding?

    1. 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. For more information on Speed Not Reasonable and Prudent tickets, visit here.

  80. Hi last night i got a speeding ticket doing 80 on a 50 thats my second ticket ever but the thing is i have court for another ticket on november i was doing 88 on a 55 so i want to know how bad its my situation.

    1. The tickets you are facing have severe consequences. The most recent ticket you are being charged is 30 miles over the speed limit, which is a 8 point ticket and a $600 fine plus an $85-93 surcharge. The ticket from November is also an 8 point infraction with harsh fines. By accumulating more than 11 points within 18 months, your license will be automatically suspended. Please call us at 888-434-0406 for assistance.

  81. I recieved a ticket yesterday on highway 219 (near boston, NY) for goon 79 in a 65. The ticket does not pro ide a subsection as to my infraction. Would it be prudent to fight the ticket or pay the fine (Im military stationed near DC)?

    1. You are being charged with speeding 11 mph over the speed limit. This ticket has a $385 fine and you will receive 4 points on your driving record. This is in addition to an increase in your insurance rates. I suggest you fight this ticket to avoid/mitigate the consequences.

  82. Hi I received a ticket for apparently going 45 in a 30 in Olean, I’m not from around here I just attend college here. It was my first time being pulled over and was written as “disobeyed traffic device” which I see will still add points to my license. Do you think it is possible to further reduce this to something without points or get it thrown out altogether?

  83. I was pulled,over after making a pass a car going 50 in a 55. cop said I was going 73 when i passed in a 55. Is there any possible way to,defend myself against this ticket?

  84. Hey Adam,

    I received a ticket for going 86 on a 55mph zone as I was trying to get back to return the rental I had that day. I had told the officer “I’m Sorry I was going too fast, I have to return the rental in by 11”. I didn’t realize I was going about 31 over the speed limit. I assumed I was about 15-20, But I had been going down hill so that’s why I may have picked up more speed. Is this ticket worth fighting? And how much would it be for?

    1. This 8 point ticket is worth fighting, as the fines are approximately $693, the assessment charge is $450, and the impact on your insurance is substantial. In order to provide any further information, I need more specific details. You may contact us for a free consultation.

  86. Hi. I got 85 in 65 ticked. I was in group of car led by speeding cop car for ~30 min. I moved to front of the group and moved to right lane to get closer to exit for bathroom break. Once I did that police car slowed and pulled behind me, collected my papers and returned with ticket without telling me about what I have done wrong. The court is 4 hours drive away. My cruise control was set at 74 and my speed could have temporarily increased while passing, but not to 85. Do I have change to get this thrown out?

I have a clean record never got a speed/violation ticket. Since is more than 4 hours away, should i fight this ticket or just plead guilty and pay the fine. I don`t want to spend 4+ hours driving to
    Chestertown Court, NY 12817 only to get the same result as of pleading guilty.

    Thanks,

    1. Ann – I suggest you contact us regarding this ticket, as we need more information in order to be able to help you. It is curious that you have received a ticket for 5 mph over the limit, and I would like to know if there was more involved in this traffic stop.

  92. I got a ticket for speeding in Grand Island, NY, 81/65 when I was on my way to Niagara falls on 16th, August. I have mailed the papers and put plead guilty but haven’t received any responses from the town court so far. I was wondering how to pay my ticket and how much is the fine, also wondering if there is still any ways to fight for the ticket.

    1. The court will send you a fine notice in the mail, although if you do not receive it shortly, I suggest contacting them. It is still possible to withdraw your guilty plea and fight the underlying 4 point ticket.

  93. I have a speeding ticket and Schuyler town 83 in a 65 and I have another ticket for letting someone drive with I license in Fulton ny .

  94. Hi so I was driving in white plains my and the officer pulled me over saying that I was going 49 on a 30! And then my friend swore the speed limit sign near the cop said 40 not 30 so we drove back around and indeed it was 40!. So should I goth or not not

    1. D – Even if you are able to prove that the speed limit was 40 mph, you are still accused of a speeding violation of 9 mph over the limit. The difference in consequences between a 4 point and a 3 point ticket is often times insignificant. I suggest you focus on whether the officer can prove you were speeding at all – as this will benefit you the most.

  95. Hello, got ticketed for 75 in 55 in Smithtown, Suffolk county. The officer asked me what the speed limit was, and I did not know. I said that I had to keep the same speed as those around me. He kept asking how fast I think I was going. I said not sure, but probably 65. He gave me supporting deposition noting I stated I was going 65. What am I facing, and what should I do? Thank you!

    1. Andrey – You are facing a 4 point ticket, which carries a fine of $393. Additionally, this will have a significant impact on your insurance rates. I suggest you fight this ticket to mitigate these consequences.

  99. Hi,
    I have a NJ license recently transferred from california.
    On Saturday i was pulled over and given a ticket by a cop for speeding 87Mph in 65Mph zone. This is my first ticket.
    I cant believe that i was going at that speed as i am always cautious about the speed while driving.

    What will be the best way to avoid getting points and the fine and eventually my insurance rates, Please suggest.

  100. I was pulled over in Alexandria Bay, NY for going 74 in a 55. I was told by the officer that the only way to not be required to appear (7 hour drive away from my home) would be to plead guilty, so I did, with the explanation that I was driving at the same speed as everyone around me. Fine is $90. Surcharge is $93! There is no mention of points on my MA state drivers license. Can you let me know if I made a mistake pleading guilty and if points are to be issued?

    Thanks!

    1. Liz – going with the flow of traffic is unfortunately not a defense to speeding. While we can not advise you on the point system in your home state, the violation will transfer and will thus impact insurance. You may contact us for a free consultation to discuss your options.

  101. I live in Queens NY. Received speeding ticket in Rensselaer on the I90 going up to Albany. Clocked me at 90 mph on a 65 mph. What should I do and how much will it cost if I fight the ticket ?

    1. The ticket you received is a 6 point ticket that carries a $300 fine, $93 court fee, and $300 DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment. If you plead guilty to this ticket, your insurance premiums will likely also increase. I suggest you fight this ticket to mitigate or eliminate these harsh consequences. You may contact us for a free consultation to discuss your case in further detail.

  102. I received a ticket 4-05 B1 ticket (u-turn), during an accident, but the officer neglected to put on the police report that the motorcycle who hit me, was speeding down the wrong side of the road. I was parked by the curb, both lanes of traffic on my side, stopped to let me out. There was a double parked delivery truck in front of me, regardless if I was going to do a U-turn or get out of the parking I still would have had to make a wide turn causing the front of my car to go over the double solid line. What is the best way to go about this situation?

  103. Hello my wife received a tickets 76 In a 55 Suffolk county long island , what are yourrates to fight this ticket ,this is her very first offense , she had told the officer she was trying to pass another car .

  105. Adam,
    Got a ticket going 86 in a 55 on rt.17.
    I have a nj ljcense. What am i looking at? Does it make sence to drive 2 hours to court hoping for a reduction. In nj they reduce it just for showing up. Is it the same in ny?

    Vince

    1. Vince – The penalty for this 8 point speeding ticket is $693 + a $450 Driver Responsibility Assessment. You will be assessed 2 points against your NJ license for this violation. In NY, there is no reduction for just showing up, but we can fight this ticket on your behalf and you will not have to go to court.

  106. Adam – i received a speeding ticket on Astoria Blvd. as i was preparing to merge left onto the Grand Central Parkway going East. Officer wrote me up for 51mph(not 50 or 52) in 30 mph zone. I have a Georgia DL, registration. When
    the officer gave me the ticket he stated ” this is a fine only, no points citation”.
    Why would he say that …..I didn’t ask? Is that even possible? – I see no such category online.
    Anyway, it’s been 10 days, but I can’t find the citation online on Eplead, so will have to call.
    Seems like a total speed trap….

    1. I am not sure why the officer said that. You are facing a 6 point ticket, with a fine of $393 and a driver responsibility assessment fee of $300. These tickets typically increase insurance rates by 20-25%. Feel free to call us for more information.

  107. I was traveling from VA to NY going to Niagara falls, and I was pulled over for speeding 103mph on 65, the cop told me that I can mail the ticket pleading that I am guilty and I am worried to get in jail

    1. You are facing an 8 point ticket, that carries substantial fines and insurance implications. You may contact us for further information about your case. You should not be concerned about imprisonment for a speeding ticket alone.

  108. Adam,

    I was pulled over for doing 50 in a 35 on Youngs Rd. in the town of Amherst. I plead not guilty to the ticket and giving a court date and told there will be a fine. I was wondering the chances of the ticket being plead down to a lower offense or not. This is my first speeding ticket and second overall (first was for a brake light). Also wondering what possible fine might be given to me in both cases, plead down and not plead down? Thank You.

  109. I just got notice to appear in Chatham, NY court for a speeding ticket (72/55) from 4 years ago. I remember I sent it back with Not Guilty. I am from NJ. I will show up if it will help my case. I don’t want points. What should I do?

  110. Adam,

    I live in Pennsylvania and have a PA drivers license. I received a speeding ticket in NY earlier this month in the “Village of Oxford” – going 60 mph in a 30mph zone…I was clocked via radar. On the ticket, in the sub section it’s marked as “1180D” and description of the violation is “Speed in Zone”. About a mile away from where I was pulled over, was where the speed limited changed from 30mph to 55mph. At the bottom of the ticket where the officer records/writes your statement, it says “I thought I was in the 55″….which is what I said as I didn’t realize I was still in the 30mph zone.

    Will I receive points to my license as I have a PA license and received the speeding ticket in NY? What is the estimated cost of this ticket? Is it worth it for me to plead “not guilty” and show up in court?

    Thank you!

    1. While we cannot advise you on the laws of PA, this 6 point ticket will have significant fines and insurance implications. I therefore recommend you fight this ticket to mitigate these consequences.

  111. I got a speeding on 8/8/15. On I-99 doing 81 in a 65 zone I’m from PA I got a print out from the trooper he say it’s not a ticket the I have to mail it in, doesn’t have the amount $$ or points i don’t know what to do should I pl guilty or not, I don’t want points.

  112. My spouse received a speeding ticket doing 73 in a 55 he also didn’t have a seat belt. he is 19 and we live in new York. What is he looking at?

  113. Adam,

    I was ticketed for driving at 88 in 65 MPH zone on NY-17 highway in Broome county. Last year I was ticketed for driving at 87 in 60 MPH zone in Arkansas.

    I have few questions, what will be my current fine and moreover do out of state convictions add points to my NY driver licence’s record ? Please suggest.

    1. Steve – you are facing a 6 point ticket, with a fine of $300, court fees of $93, and a driver responsibility assessment charge of $300. Non-serious out of state traffic infractions do not add points to your NY license.

  114. I got a speeding ticket on 8/4/2015. On I-88 going 84 in a 65. I’m from S. Carolina. No fine was on my ticket. How much is that one? VTL section 1180D Description SPEED IN ZONE

  115. Got speeding ticket in Broome County, going 94 in 65. I have an Illinois license. Please let me know the best/worst case scenarios in terms of points, cost and your fee for fighting this ticket.

    1. Aman – if you are found guilty, you are facing a 6 point ticket, with a fine of $393, and a DRA assessment charge of $300 in total. Additionally, you will realize a substantial increase in your insurance. The other end of the spectrum is a finding of not-guilty – which would eliminate these consequences. Where your particular case falls along that spectrum depends on numerous factors. You may contact us to discuss your case in more specific detail.

  116. I received a ticket for 80 in a 55 in tonawanda township after just coming over the border. I am from ohio and have an ohio drivers license. What fines and points am I looking at if I plead guilty? Thanks!

    1. You are looking at a 6 point ticket, with fines of $393, and a driver responsibility assessment charge of $300. Additionally, there will be a substantial impact on your insurance rates.

  117. Hello, I received a speeding ticket in NY state for 86 in a 65 as I was traveling back home to Arizona. On the ticket itself, the cop put down that my car is registered to AR (Arkansas) instead of AZ (Arizona). Is this something that can be fought, or worth fighting? Or should I just plead guilty and move on? I don’t ever plan on going back to NY so a court appearance probably wouldn’t be ideal for me..

    Thanks!

    1. Nick – please be advised of the following – a) your ticket will not be dismissed because of the error the officer made regarding the vehicle registration; b) the violation will transfer to your home state, and will likely have a substantial impact on your insurance rates, c) if you retain counsel, you will be able to fight this 6 point ticket without personally appearing in court.

  119. Hello mr. Adam. I am a junior drive and got radar read 15 miles per hour over the speed limit. I was doing 70 in a 55. I know it is 4 points on my license and it says I violated 1180d. Because I was clocked should I try to fight the ticket? Should I plead guilty or not guilty? I am also wondering if since I’m a junior driver if my license will be suspended or revoked.

    1. Hanna – you are facing a 4 point ticket which carries fines of $393, and a significant impact on insurance rates. A Junior License will be suspended for 60 days if you receive a serious traffic infraction. A 4 point ticket is considered to be such a serious traffic infraction.

  120. Hi,

    I was on my way back from Niagara Falls, NY and returning back to New York City. My friend who was travelling along with me had to catch a flight from JFK Airport to Portland, OR. We were running late and I was using the left lane to pass vehicles. I was travelling on highway I -81 and was using the left lane to pass vehicles in the middle lane. The traffic in general was going at 80 + mph speed and I increased my speed to pass vehicles and come back to the middle lane. In this attempt my speed reached 87 mph and I got stopped by the New York State Police.
    The designated speed limit at that region is 65 mph, but I was not speeding on purpose. I was following the speed of the ongoing traffic on the highway and had to increase my speed in the passing lane in order to pass the vehicle on my right lane and return to that lane

    My question is should I plead guilty or not guilty ?

    Thanks,
    Sayandeep

    1. Sayandeep – Unfortunately, following the flow of traffic is not a defense to speeding. However, I suggest you fight this ticket as there are other ways to mitigate / avoid the consequences of this infraction.

  121. I just got a ticket for doing 70 in a 55. I told him I knew I was going faster than the speed limit and that I was actually kind of sidetracted looking at the pink sky. Too honest with him. Anyways, I got a ticket and he wrote on it that I admitted to speeding and I was looking at the sunset. How much would it cost to fight vs sending in as guilty?

    1. Tammy – you are facing a 4 point ticket, that would include fines, and increased insurance rates. In order to give you specific information, I would need to know which court is handling your case. You may contact us for a free consultation.

  122. Hello
    My son got a ticket 25 miles over the speed limit 55. he told the trooper he thinks he was going 70 .
    Hes going to plead not guilty but im wondering if he should go it alone or not being hes 20 yrs old .

    1. Guy – I strongly suggest your son does not handle this ticket alone, as there are significant consequences including fines, points, a driver responsibility assessment charge, and a steep increase in your insurance rates.

  123. I got 2 tickets,On belt pkwy hwy I was going 70 on 50 and I got pulled over on 7/24/15 and got a ticket saying I was going 90. 2 nd was my registeration isnt expired till june 2016 and in the ticket saying my registration card is expired june 2015.

  124. Hello Mr.Adam,

    I am a VA resident, I received a speeding ticket two days ago on Highway 390 for doing 80 [i.e. 15 over 65 mph] . I was booked under section 1180D as per my citation. I was hoping to call up the local court or county office and pay my fine. I was surprised when I was told that either I would have to come to court or mail-in my plea.
    I also noticed that my citation had my statement “Yea, I was going about 70″ , although I think I might have stated something like ” I think I might have been going at around 70mph”.

    I also happened to notice my old address on the citation.

    Anyways, what would be my my penalty ? Should I plead guilty via mail since I do not want to go to court ?

    1. Aldo – the penalty for a 4 point ticket is $300, along with $93 in court fees. If you hire an attorney, you would be able to fight your ticket without personally appearing in court.

  125. I received a ticket on the thruway on father’s day. I was doing 84 in a 65 mile zone according to the state trooper. However, it was raining heavily and there was big rig in front depositing water on my car, hence the speed. The trooper said it was going to the City of Delmar making the case. However, I sent out ticket 2-3 days after receiving it and heard no response. What should I do? And what are the possible fines I might be facing?

    1. Robin – your 4 point ticket will have fines ranging from $203 – $393, along with an impact on insurance. You may contact us for a free consultation to discuss your options. I would like to know whether you have plead guilty to this offense or not.

  126. I’ve just recieved a speed in zone ticket, I was doing 61 mph in a 30mph zone in mount Vernon ny, what should I do?

  127. Adam,

    I received a speeding ticket while coming back from Laguardia clocked at 77 mph on a 50 mph zone. ticket i got was on whitestone expressway. My ticket is marked as 1180D – could you please advise on what would be the ticket cost and how many points on my CT driving license? And if it’s worth fighting – considering I live in CT.

    Thanks,
    Arps

    1. Arps – this 6 point ticket will include a fine of $203, along with a driver responsibility assessment charge of $300. While we are not able to advise you on the point system of CT, the underlying violation will transfer to your home state – and will thus impact your insurance rates.

  128. Hello,
    Can you please tell me how many miles over is considered reckless driving in NY? I had gotten ticket for 21 miles over the limit and I’m having a hard time finding out whether this is a reckless driving charge. This is from a couple years ago, is there any chance of having this removed from my record?
    Thank you!

    1. There is no standard rate of speed that will qualify as reckless driving. Additionally, it appears that you are being charged with a speeding ticket. Due to the nature of your case, I suggest you contact us if you would like to discuss further.

  129. I got a 80 in a 65 ticket. I plead not guilty. Now I have received a letter to either do a non jury trial or plea to a lesser charge. I am a pa driver and I have never gotten a new York ticket. I honestly have no clue if I was speeding, I was talking to my daughter about our trip to California and Texas. When I looked at the ticket I noticed that it is not the right make model or color of my car. They say I was driving a 2001 Mitsubishi grey. I was driving a 2014 subaru the is ice blue factory color. What should I do?

    1. Minor errors on the ticket will not warrant a dismissal. However, there are other methods to fight this ticket which will enable you to mitigate / avoid the consequences of this 4 point ticket.

  130. Would like to get a quote for a speeding ticket. I was going 72 in a 50 zone. Even though I could swear it said 55. On top of that the officer was very rude and did not show me the actual reading of my speed. There were at least 4 cars that passed me coming around the bend so, how get picked me out of the bunch is crazy. I also felt very intimidated by this officer because i didnt pull over fast enough onto a dangerous shoulder. This happened on the grand central. I would likw to fight this ticket with everything I got. I need your help I have a clean record aND have never been in trouble. Thank you.

  131. I was at I87 from NYC to Woodbury yesterday morning. I was driving at 80MPH at passing lane. Then an SUV passed me on the right lane with much higher speed and changed to my lane in front of me. I followed him at ~87MPH. After 1 minute, a cop stopped both of us. However, he LET HIM GO AWAY in 30 seconds. Then he came to my car and gave me the ticket (87 OVER 55 on the ticket).

    It is really unfair the cop ignored the faster car in front of me and gave me one ticket. Should I fight this ticket? Thank you Adam.

    Regards,
    Zimu

    1. Zimu – This 8 point carries fines of $693, along with a driver responsibility assessment charge of $450 over the course of 3 years.

  132. Hello Mr.Adam,

    I’m an Ontario Resident and I received a speeding ticket at 90 on a 65Mph road while returning from NY on I390 Highway while I was trying to over take a truck. Also the same morning I received a parking ticket that morning. The interesting part was out of 10 cars on the streets only my car received a parking ticket.

    I would really appreciate your advise on this situation.

    1. While we do not handle parking tickets, the 6 point speeding ticket you are facing carries fines of $393, a driver responsibility assessment charge of $300 over the course of 3 years, and a significant insurance impact.

  133. Adam,

    I received a speeding ticket while visiting Corning, NY (Stuben County) clocked at (as per ticket) 48 in a 30 mile zone. I had just got off the 86 and onto the Denison Pkw (eastbound) when a cop car pulled me over when I was stopped at the red light.

    This is the first speeding ticket I’ve ever gotten in over 7 years of driving in us. I do not believe I was going over the limit – else stopping at the red light would have been very hard. More over I reviewed the entire stretch again over google map and couldn’t find any speed sign less than 45 mph on that stretch.

    My ticket is marked as 1180D – could you please advise on what would be the ticket cost and how many points on my CT driving license? And if it’s worth fighting – considering I live in CT.

    Thanks,
    P. Jais

    1. You are looking at a 4 point ticket, that will have a total fine of $393. Additionally, this will likely have a significant impact on your insurance rates. I suggest you fight the ticket to avoid / mitigate these consequences.

  134. I got 3 tickets. One ticket I was speeding over 10. Also another one was because I didn’t have my permit because I just had requested for a new one but I presented my paper permit and I was with the owner and she has a license. Also because her kids didn’t have proper seat belt. Approximately how many points am I facing and how much? also do I need to attent to court with a parent?

  135. Mr Adam,
    I’m a brazilian and I rented a car in NYC to a short trip to Napels (NY). When I was returning to NYC, I received a traffic ticket (violation of VTL Section 1180F). The policeman told me that I was going 80 mph on a 55 mph speed limit work zone. This happened at 9:55am and there was no workers present. The road only had cones and it didn’t look like a construction site. I was following my trip and suddenly the car this in front of me braked very fast and I had to pass him increasing the speed. I am a brazilian guy and unfamiliar with the zone. In fact I should to be in JKF airport at 5:00pm to take my flight to Brazil.
    The police officer give me a ticket and tell me to return the ticket by mail before 07/23/2015 in Chemung Town Court.

    I would like to know:
    1) Is there any way to contest this ticket?
    2) I should warning the rent a car company?
    3) All fines and are applicable to non-US?

    I only want to pay the correct fine and do not have trouble with american justice.

    Please advice how i should proceed.
    Thank you in advance

    1. Jose – to answer your questions: 1) There are ways to contest this ticket, however, the presence of workers has no bearing on the outcome of your case; 2) Refer to your rental car agreement regarding the reporting procedures for traffic tickets; 3) Fines are applicable to non-US drivers.

      Please be advised – the fines for this offense will be approximately $393, along with a $300 driver responsibility assessment charge.

  136. I tried to read through the comments as I am sure someone may have had a similar matter but I did not see it after scrolling through 2 months – So I apologize for a repeat. On I87NB – I received a VTL 1180 0D 81/65 in Jan 2015 – Woodbury justice court (highland mills). I received a pre-trial conference date for May that was then pushed back by court to July (a few days).
    – The ticket reads 12:26am (I was asleep at 12:26a in my bed and not on I87). I have texts sent/received an hour later which unfortunately does not prove I was home, but the context proves I could have been.
    – Should I get a letter from my spouse – who was asleep in that bed with me?
    – What happens when there is an error in time by the officer on the ticket?
    – If I am found guilty – have you ever seen courts work out payment plans?

    Thank you for any information and this service that you are providing.
    MS

    1. Maxine – this is an excellent question you present. While tickets will generally not be dismissed for a clerical error, such as a mistake in a drivers license number, tickets can arguably be dismissed if there is an incorrect date or time. This case might rest upon when this incident actually occurred – for example, if the time of the incident was actually 12:25 pm, a Judge might view this as a clerical mistake on the part of the officer. You may contact us to discuss this matter in further detail at 888-434-0406.

  137. I got a speeding ticket going 80mph in a 55mph (down a hill on State Route 20). Court is Carlisle Town Court. What are the fines? Does the DRA apply for out of state residents?
