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 am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I contacted Ralph Habib from the Azria & Bruffett group to represent me in my defense in connection with a speeding ticket. I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Habib and found him to be professional and diligent in this area of law. I felt his background and experience would undoubtedly be the right choice. Shannon Liparulo the Paralegal was great at keeping me informed as to the status and sharing the outcome of the case with me. She always answered and returned my calls and emails. I honestly recommend Mr. Ralph Habib and the team from Azria & Bruffett! Thank you Mr. Habib and Shannon. From Melton S

Azria & Bruffet were superb in handling a speeding ticket for me. They were specific and prompt on the information they needed and were able to reduce the charge against me with no headache from my side. If you are worried about any larger traffic violation that may cost a lot or suspend your license they are certainly the firm to go with as they take care of everything.

Excellent lawyer

I hired David Bruffett based upon his internet advertisement's claim to relieve my stress over my ticket. He talked me through the options that were available to us as well as giving me an education into the idiosyncrasies of New York traffic law. By the end of the case he had achieved the best outcome possible. While I personally hope to never need his services again I will call him immediately should the need arise and would recommend him to my friends and family if they need the services of a lawyer.
