Alabama Drivers: Effect of New York Traffic Ticket Convictions

by Seth Azria on 5/07/2020

Syracuse, NY Traffic Lawyer effect of traffic tickets on Alabama drivers


Alabama  Adds New York convictions to Alabama Records 

If the Alabama DMV receives a New York conviction it will: 1) add it to their licensee’s record, and 2) keep the record for 3 years from the conviction date. 

Alabama and New York are both members of the driver license compact and so the states share information about traffic convictions.  So it seems likely, Alabamans convicted in NeW York will have consequences at home. 

It is also important to consider:  

  1. All drivers, regardless of the state that issued their license, who are ticketed in New York are subject to New York’s driver responsibility law that requires payment from any driver who accrues 6 or more points in any 18 month period. One speeding ticket 21mph over the limit is 6 points. And, 
  2. It is likely a Missouri insurance carrier will learn of the conviction and might raise premiums or drop coverage.

Professional, quick and both tickets dismissed. Very pleased!

Schuyler speeding ticket

It's been quite a few months, maybe a year since Seth got my speeding ticket reduced to a non moving violation. After speaking with several attorneys I went with Seth because he was exactly as described in his reviews. He was reachable, returned my calls, answered all my questions (which there were many). After a few weeks he and his staff got back to me with a positive outcome. It cost some money in fees and fines but a few months later my insurance had dropped $800. Wow....I was happy I didn't get a speeding ticket or points taken away so that my insurance wouldn't go up. This was a super bonus! 
Thanks Seth!
