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.

I was issued a speeding ticket in an area that I was unfamiliar with. We researched the law firms to help with reducing the charge of my ticket, since I had never received a speeding ticket before. The professionals at Azria and Bruffett were efficient, organized, and provided me with a comprehensive plan as to how they would handle my case. I was thrilled with the outcome - they were able to plea my case to a much more reasonable fine.

I can't thank them enough!


Happy with the Service

I was coming back home (Canada) when I got pulled over for doing 81 in 65 zone. I had no clue as in what to do. If I would've just simply paid the fine I would've lost 3 points in Canada on my license. So I googled lawyer and Seth's name came up. Contacted him and he advised me how he will pursue this ticket and what would be the likely outcome of it. What he said come out to be exactly that. VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULT. I WILL RECOMMEND HIM.

This gentleman works wonders

Due to my reckless decision making I was charged with an aggravated DWI. This could have ended badly for me and left me devastated financially. I hired Mr Habib and he immediately set up a plan of action for my case. Throughout the process he kept me well informed and detailed exactly what he was trying to achieve in my case. This man worked a miracle. Not only did he get the charge dropped down to a DWAI (a traffic infraction) he also mitigated the financial impact this incident would have had on me by thousands of dollars. I can't thank Mr. Habib enough. If you want a second chance this is the man to call hands down. He even went above and beyond to write a letter to my employer to further explain this unfortunate incident. Thanks again, sir.

Was speeding on the Taghkanic on my way back home to the city. David secured me a judgment with 0 points and a $150 judgment. And I didn't need to leave the city. He also has a responsive and courteous staff. Highly recommend.
