1180(b) and 1180(d), are the two most common types of speeding tickets. Section 1180(b) is for exceeding the state speed limit and (d) is for exceeding the posted limit. The consequences for a conviction for either are:

Points for Speeding Convictions

  • 21-30 over the posted limit - 6 pts** ($300 DRA)
  • 31-40 over the posted limit - 8 pts** ($450 DRA)
  • over 40 over the posted limit - 11 pts** ($675 DRA and license suspension)

**A conviction for 6 points or more in any 18 month period will cause a Driver Responsibility Assessment (DRA), from the New York DM in the amount listed. This assessment will be due in addition to the court fine and applies all drivers regardless of where they are licensed to drive. 

**New York state suspends driving license of driver who accumulates 11 points or more in any 18 month period. Therefore, one conviction for speeding 41 mph over the limit, or more, will cause a suspension all by itself.

Being from out of state, I was happy to find a law firm that was so easy to work with. They were able to get my ticket reduced and they did all the leg work for me. Everything was very straight forward and easy to understand. Hopefully I won't need them in the future but if I do, I know where to turn!

David Bruffett resolved Speeding Violation very smartely. I contacted Attorney David receiving a speeding ticket over 100mph in NY, being a NJ driver. David was very professional and very clear on how to handle the issue (had very high points ticket but thanks to David who turned a stressful incident into a quick, easy and painless situation). Within a few months the issue was resolved and we are entirely satisfied with the outcome. I must say that David's help, support and guidance was very professional as well! I highly recommend David, if you have any traffic speeding tickets in the NY state. I found his services remarkable. He delivered more then he promised. I guess that what makes any client happy.

I was entirely satisfied with the representation I received from Azria and Bruffett. In May 2018, I received two tickets for failing to stop adequately at a stop sign (the officer said it was a "rolling stop") and failure to signal more than 100 ft. before a turn. I had never had a moving violation in 20+ years of driving, and I was now suddenly facing 5 points and the possibility of a hefty fine! Azria and Bruffett were able to get the charges reduced to a non-moving violation with no points and a minimal fine. Based on my experience, I would recommend them to someone who is concerned about avoiding points and black marks on their driving record.

Mr. Azria was excellent, fast and very courteous handling my case for a speeding violation upstate. And most importantly he was very successful lowering my fine and reducing my charge. Highly recommend.

Would Recommend to Anyone

Seth Azria was recommended to me by a friend. I can't say enough about how well I was treated, his responsiveness, and how my case was handled. My first call to him was on 12/22/14 and we met the same day. My first and last date in court was 1/15/15. The outcome was better than I ever expected it could be and would recommend him to anyone.
