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.

Best Decision I've Made!

Fantastic to work with, he was able to take my cell phone ticket worth a possible 5 points and bring it down to a muffler violation worth 0 points. Could not be happier with the service provided and how quick and easy everything was, once I answered a few questions everything else was taken care of for me! Extremely reasonable price, especially considering all I will be saving not having to pay extra on my insurance!
