How are traffic tickets handled in New York?

Anyone who drives in New York should have an understanding of the area’s methods for processing traffic ticket cases. Drivers with New York drivers’ licenses as well as licenses from other states can receive traffic summonses in New York and both are handled in the same manner. Proper responses are important to help minimize or reduce fines, points or other associated penalties of traffic violations.

Reinstating driving privileges in New York

People in New York can have their drivers’ licenses revoked for several reasons. As outlined by the state DMV website, license revocations differ from license suspensions in that they effectively cancel licenses, requiring that completely new drivers’ license applications be made in order to restore driving privileges.

Understanding what these are can be helpful to people who may face such situations.

What is New York’s driver point system?

The New York Department of Motor Vehicles tracks all information associated with residents’ drivers’ licenses.

Every type of violation is assigned a certain number of points and drivers who amass multiple points over a certain time period may face specific penalties.

Traffic penalties to increase under new law

New York City’s Mayor has embarked on an ambitious journey to eliminate pedestrian deaths over the next several years. While this is positive in many regards, it may result in greater concerns for motorists who face traffic violations in the city. Already, drivers can be forced to pay high fines, insurance surcharges and deal with points being added to their driving records. If penalties increase, these things could become even harsher. Laws in Sweden have been some of the motivation for the mayor’s actions.

Cameras generate revenue and controversy

Law enforcement utilizes many different ways to identify New York drivers that violate traffic laws.
