If you received a speeding ticket anywhere in the state of New York, there are severe consequences in store for you if you are found guilty or plead guilty yourself to such a violation.
This can be true even if you don’t have a New York State driver’s license. New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law (VTL) section 1180 is the statute under which most speeding tickets are written in New York.
You can receive a speeding violation under certain local rules in New York State such as NYC traffic rule section 4-06. However, section 1180 with its various subsections (b and d are the most popular) are the most likely statutory source for your current trouble.
You will receive a monetary fine and a surcharge; you may have to pay a “bad” driver tax/assessment to New York State even if you don’t reside in New York State; you will likely receive points against your driver’s license as indicated on the DMV website (for instance, a speeding ticket for a speed 21-30 mph over the limit is 6 points); your insurance can go up; or you could lose your job if you drive for a living or your license to drive if you have too many total points.
As you can see, it is best to have a speeding ticket dismissed or points reduced, if at all possible. A lawyer can help you by providing knowledge of the rules and process so that you incur the least possible damage to your wallet and your livelihood as a consequence of receiving a speeding ticket.
