Kentucky Drivers: Effect New York Traffic Ticket Convictions

by Seth Azria on 4/06/2020
Syracuse, NY Traffic Ticket Lawyer Represents drivers from Kentucky

Kentucky Will Include Certain NY Convictions 

Non-CDL Speeding Tickets Not Transferred 

Kentucky has a nuanced position when it comes to recording out-of-state traffic ticket convictions. First, New York speeding ticket convictions do not transfer points to Kentucky. However, if the driver has a CDL,  the points for a speeding ticket will transfer. Kentucky’s Points System

All Other Moving Violations Transfer Points 

Second, while a speeding ticket does not transfer points, all other “moving hazardous violations” received in another state do transfer to Kentucky. For example; texting while driving - 3 points; Improper lane usage - 3 points; failure to yield to an emergency vehicle- 4 points; or stop sign violation - 3 points. In Kentucky, accumulating 12 points in a two year period will cause a suspension.  

Out-of-State Tickets Must be Satisfied

Regardless of whether Kentucky records a conviction, if a Kentucky driver does not take care of an out-of-state ticket, Kentucky’s Division of Driver Licensing will serve notice upon their driver to do so within 30 days. If no action is taken, the Kentucky license will be suspended.

Insurance Premiums Always a Concern

As with most all states, because Kentucky and New York share traffic information, one should assume that an insurance carrier will learn of the convictions. Increased insurance premiums are the primary concern for most drivers and rightfully so.

Very pleased

I hired Seth to take care of a speeding ticket. He got it reduced to a no point ticket. The whole process was very simple and done through email. He took the time to answer any questions I had and his office kept me informed during the process.

Mr. Azria has been incredibly helpful towards my case! especially enduring the circumstances of corona virus conditions and policies, he has helped me dismiss my case once and for all! Any questions i had were answered within hours and i was always kept up to date. a great thanks to him and his firm from my father and I!

Great Results

I had received a speeding ticket a few months ago that would have been 5 points 20 MPH over the speed limit. I had not had a speeding ticket in a very long time and I was hesitant when looking for a lawyer but I saw good reviews about Seth Azria and decided to email him with my information. I received a response within a few hours and his charges were much lower than I was expecting to pay from what I had paid in the past. His staff was very friendly and I was kept well informed as to what was going on. He was able to get it reduced to no points and a very small fine. I was very happy with the results and would recommend him to anyone looking for help with speeding ticket.
