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 have retained Mr. Azria on several occasions for traffic violations and each one turned out in my favor 100%. This is the lawyer to hire when involved in any traffic incidents. I have recommended him to many friends and all have had great results. You people have to try this law firm out, you won't be disappointed. Mr. Azria is the true "heavy hitter" here in Syracuse. Thank you so much Mr. Azria, you saved my commercial license from any points, and your fee was more than reasonable.

Good, timely results

I was kept informed of the process throughout the one, one and half months it took to get my speeding ticket resolved. They were able to bring it down to a no points moving violation and it was all done without any hiccups.

The fees is reasonable and the process was very smooth. Definitely recommend!

I highly recommend Azria & Bruffett Law Firm , if you have any traffic speeding tickets in the NY state. I found his services remarkable. They delivered as promised. Thanks

Extremely Satisfied

I have hired the Azria law firm twice to represent my daughter, once for speeding and the other was an accident. Both times I was extremely pleased with the outcome, in both cases they were dropped to no pointers. Everything was handled through e-mail, which was very convenient and in both cases were taken care of from start to finish within a month. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you again for all of your help.
