Points System in New York

Don't Pay Fines that Automatically Put Points on Your Record

New York uses a points system where certain traffic violations are given a point value. When you accumulate a certain number points, the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Motor Vehicle Commission can and will suspend or revoke your driver's license. While it may seem easier to just pay your ticket and move on, doing so means pleading guilty to a traffic offense, and points will be added automatically. Let the New York traffic ticket lawyer at Martin A. Kron & Associates, P.C. help.

Let Martin A. Kron & Associates, P.C. help you fight your ticket and keep points off your record. Call us at (212) 235-1525or reach out to us online.

Too Many Points Can Result in License Suspension & Additional Fines

How many points does it take for a license suspension? That depends on the type of traffic violation and the number of offenses you are convicted of in a certain period of time.

In New York, once you get six points on your record, you are subject to additional fines for tickets in the future. If you accumulate 11 or more points, or if you receive three speeding tickets in an 18-month period, your license may be revoked for a minimum of six months.

Listed below are some of the most common or serious offenses, and the points associated with each. Remember that points are not the only penalty for many of these violations. Some alone could result in license suspension and criminal sanctions.

In New York, the points value for infractions is:

  • Speeding over the limit – 3 to 11
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (property damage) – 3
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (with injury) – 4
  • Improper cellphone use or texting – 5
  • Running a red light or stop sign – 3
  • Following too closely or tailgating – 4
  • Improper passing – 3
  • Failure to stop for a school bus – 5
  • Reckless driving – 5
