Court Assessed Fines for NY Speeding Convictions

by Seth Azria on 12/28/2014

New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed restrictions and sets out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The amount the fine that a court may assess is based on the specific section stated on the ticket, the speed over the limit, and the number of previous convictions.

The fines are in addition to the state surcharge (currently $85), DMV points, and any adverse affect a speeding conviction may have on your insurance premiums and/or coverage. If you have 3 speeding convictions in any 18 month period, the DMV will suspend your driving license. And then there is the DMV Driver Responsibility Assessments for having more than 6 points in 18 months. 

Speeding in School or Construction Zone

If your ticket states that you violated 1180C, 1180D2, or 1180F of the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law the possible fines for a guilty plea or conviction vary based on your speed and are:

  • Not more that 10mph over- $90-$300 + Surcharge
  • Between 11 - 30mph over- $180-$600 + Surcharge (and/or imprisonment up to 15 days)
  • More than 30mph over - $360-$1,200 + Surcharge (and/or imprisonment up to 30 days)

Exceeding 55mph or Posted Speed Limit

If your ticket states that you violated 1180D, 1180B the possible fines for a guilty plea or conviction are:

  • Not more than 10mph over- $45-$150 + Surcharge
  • Between 11 - 30mph over- $90-$300 + Surcharge (and/or imprisonment up to 15 days)
  • More than 30 over - $180-$600 + Surcharge (and/or imprisonment up to 30 days)
Imprudent Speeds

If your ticket states that you violated 1180A or 1180E the possible fines for a guilty plea or conviction are:

  • Between $45 and $150 + Surcharge
Increased Fines for Additional Violations

The fines also increase based on how many speeding ticket convictions you have on your record. The fine will increase by $150 for the 2nd conviction of any speeding within the previous 18 months, the fine will increase by $375 for the 3rd conviction of any speeding within the previous 18 months, and/or imprisonment up to 30 days.

Awesome job

I received a ticket for speeding in Warrensburg, NY for going 20mph above the speed limit - a 4 point and >$200 offense. Mr. Bruffett took the case and had the ticket reduced to a 0 point $150 offense. Great result. I highly recommend his services.

I was very satisfied having them represent me on a speeding ticket. They kept me posted through out the process and made me at ease from the start as it would have been very difficult for me being out of state for this speeding ticket. Very Professional and I highly recommend them.

THE lawyer you need when dealing with NY State & upstate Cops

TWICE I reached out to Seth when I got speeding tickets in upstate NY about a year apart. The first ticket was reduced significantly so it gave me great confidence to call Seth from the highway when I got the second ticket! 

With each ticket Seth explained what my options and risks were. He delivered exactly what he promised in each event. He really knows the DA's in each county that he had to deal with and was able to get the second ticket which was a monster 6 pointer to ZERO points!  The fact that I did not have to waste time and wages to appear in court was priceless.

I emphatically recommend Seth for anyone with a New York State or an upstate speeding ticket.

Seth Azria and his team are the absolute BEST in the game. During the initial consultation Mr. Azria was very thorough in explaining the whole process and possible outcomes. The fees were VERY reasonable. The level of responsiveness was superb. Kudos to Monica as well!!!! - I appreciate all of your assistance. It’s never fun to get a ticket out of state. But thanks to this team, they turned a stressful incident into a quick, easy and painless situation. I would HIGHLY recommend this firm to anyone who is looking for an attorney in the area.

I had an excellent experience with this law firm. Mr Bruffett brought down my charges significantly and now I have zero points. He was always available if I had questions. They are a very organized and efficient group of professionals. I am very pleased with the outcome and I highly recommend them for traffic violations.
