The Dreaded Speeding Ticket

Being found guilty of a speeding ticket can result in points being assessed against a driver’s license.  The lowest level speeding ticket is 3 points and the highest level is 11 points.

If a driver has been convicted of multiple speeding tickets in an 18-month period, the fines will significantly increase.

This chart will help you quickly determine  how many points you are facing.

01 to 10 mph over the limit
11 to 20
21 to 30

Pleading Guilty By Mail

When a driver pleads guilty by mail, it is the same thing as being convicted after a trial.  In other words, there is finality to plea.  Attempting to vacate a speeding ticket can be difficult, time consuming, and expensive. So before you check off Box A and plead guilty, you should consider all of the possible consequences to the plea including but not limited a license suspension, a New York State Driver’s Responsibility Assessment fee, and insurance increases.
