New York State Speeding Ticket Costs
The fine for most speeding tickets is between $150 to $600. A state surcharge of $88 or $93 is added on top of the fine. Should a driver reach 6 points or more on his/her license, the DMV charges a Driver Responsibility Assessment (DRA) fee, which costs $300 for the first 6 points and $75 for each additional point. A speeding ticket is also likely to increase insurance premiums by hundreds of dollars per year should the driver be convicted.

Warren County Geography and How It Relates to Traffic Tickets
Warren County sits at a key position just east of the Adirondacks. Drivers can take I-87 north-south through Warren County, which connects drivers from as far south as the Bronx/NYC to as far north as the NY-Quebec border. U.S. Route 9 also travels north-south through the county nearly parallel to I-87. NY Route 8 cuts east-west along the northern part of Warren County, ending at NY Route 9N near Hague Town Beach Park.
