HOW DOES A JUDGE ASSESS A FINE?
Once a driver is convicted of a speeding ticket, the judge presiding over the matter has the power to assess a fine. The fine is defined by statute and the judge can pick a dollar amount allotted by law. In addition to the fine, New York State will add a mandatory surcharge to every speeding conviction.
In assessing a fine, the judge can take into consideration any number of factors involved in the case. This can include the nature of the charge (how fast you were going), a driver’s past driving history, and their attitude in court.
