New York State Speeding Ticket CostsFines for speeding in New York are expensive enough as it is. But the $150 to $600 fine is not the final cost. New York State slaps a mandatory surcharge of $88 to $93 on each ticket. If the ticket brings the total number of points imposed on a driver’s license to six or more, he/she will also have to pay a DMV Driver Responsibility Assessment (DRA). A DRA is an annual fee that costs $100 per year for three years. Each point over six adds another $25 per year for three years. Worse, a single speeding ticket can cause massive increases in auto insurance rates, which typically last for three years or more.
