We Know the Law and How it Applies to Your Situation
Under New York Law, if you are convicted of three speeding offenses within 18 months, your driver’s license will be suspended or revoked for six months. Speeding tickets in New York State are codified under the Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 1180b. Depending on how many miles over the limit you are charged with violating, the points on your license vary:
- 1-10 miles per hour over the limit = 3 points
- 11-20 miles per hour over the limit = 4 points
- 21-30 miles per hour over the limit = 6 points
- 31-40 miles per hour over the limit = 8 points
- 41 miles per hour or more over the limit = 11 points and automatic license suspension
In some cases, speeding violations can turn into reckless driving charges, especially for individuals involved in street racing or speed contests.
Our law firm can help you fight your speeding ticket and all other traffic violations. Don’t plead guilty without consulting with us first.
