Wherever you may have received your ticket in New York, our firm thoroughly prepares for your case and aggressively defends your rights in traffic court and across the negotiating table.
Traffic violations are costly
Traffic penalties cost more these days than just the cost of the ticket. According to a recent analysis by insurance.com, a reckless driving charge boosts insurance premiums by 22 percent on average, for example, while driving without a license adds 18 percent. And higher rates can stay in place for as many as seven years. The average premium increase due to a reckless driving charge is $550 per year. Potential costs over seven years can equal $3,850. This alone should give you reason to fight a traffic penalty charge before just paying it. Hiring an experienced attorney, such as Arthur L. Pressman, can save you money.
How fast over the limit do you have to be going to incur points?
Below is the list of New York speeding ticket points that can be added to your license:
- 1–10 miles per hour (mph) over the speed limit: 3 points
- 11–20 mph over the speed limit: 4 points
- 21–30 mph over the speed limit: 6 points
- 40+ mph over the speed limit: 11 points
Note that if you exceed 11 points on your license, it is then suspended. Traffic penalties can cause many problems and, if not addressed by an experienced New York traffic attorney, can lead to criminal charges.
