Contact Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLPHarrison Speeding Ticket Defense Lawyers
Receiving a speeding ticket or cell phone ticket is an unsettling experience which gets worse if you are subsequently found guilty and have to pay high fines and surcharges, incur DMV assessment fees, accumulate points on your driver's license, and face higher insurance costs.
Unlike other moving violations under the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law which typically carry a two or three point penalty against your driver's license, the points assessed for speeding tickets vary depending on the how many miles per hour (mph) above the speed limit you are accused of driving.
Points are dictated according to the following:
1 to 10 mph over the speed limit 3 points
11 to 20 mph 4 points
21 to 30 mph 6 points
31 to 40 mph 8 points
over 40 mph 11 points
In addition, the amount of the fines will vary depending on the number of mph over the speed limit and the number of convictions that one may have within an 18 month period. More importantly, any driver who has three speeding convictions within an 18 month period will automatically have their license revoked by the Court.
Along those same lines, cell phone tickets have become an overwhelming concern of law enforcement and the number of tickets issued for using a cell phone or other handheld electronic device have increased dramatically over the past few years. In fact, the points assessed for using a cell phone have increased from zero to five in a few short years.
