Maryland Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 3/04/2014

Like New York and most states in the United States, Maryland is a member of the Driver's License Compact(“Compact”). Through this Compact the member states share information about driver convictions and suspensions with other member states. The Maryland MVA will therefore assess points on a Maryland record for certain out-of-state violations as identified in the Compact.

These violations are:

  • Alcohol or drug related offenses;
  • Leaving the scene of a personal injury accident;
  • Homicide or manslaughter involving a vehicle;
  • Use of a motor vehicle in the commission of a felony.

Even though a conviction in New York for speeding, for example, is not likely to incur points on a Maryland driving record, there are other consequences to be considered. For example, your ticket may cause the New York DMV to make a Driver Responsibility Assessment which can dramatically increase the the expense associated with a particular conviction.

If you have been charged with a traffic violation in Upstate, Central, or Western New York please call (315) 364-1155 to discuss your case with a traffic defense lawyer to determine the best course of action in your case.

Seth was able to reduce my 6 point speeding ticket to 0 points with a small fine. His office was responsive and kept me up to date. I did not have to appear in court, they pretty much took care of everything.

The office handled my speeding case effectively and obtained an outcome that did not put any points on my license. I would recommend this firm to anyone with a similar case.

I had an excellent experience with this law firm. Mr Bruffett brought down my charges significantly and now I have zero points. He was always available if I had questions. They are a very organized and efficient group of professionals. I am very pleased with the outcome and I highly recommend them for traffic violations.
