Maryland Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 3/03/2014

Most New York Traffic Convictions Not Likely added to MD Record 

Like New York,  and most states in the United States, Maryland is a member of the Driver 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 add to 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. 

Insurance Premium Increases are Still a Concern

Most importantly, it is likely your insurance company will learn of your New York conviction and may increase your premiums or drop coverage. It remains important to mitigate the charge as much as possible. 

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.

I was very satisfied having them represent me on a speeding ticket. The process was seamless and very convenient. I highly recommend them and will not consider anyone else to represent me if I should ever land in any sticky situations again. They fight tirelessly for you and make it easy for you. They are great.

Professional and reliable, highly recommended

After receiving a ticket upstate NY, I contacted Seth's firm based on the great reviews on this board and was really happy that I made this choice.

Seth explained the possible outcome in my case when I first called him and managed to achieve exactly what he told me, which shows that he is experienced and knowledgeable in his area of practice. He successfully negotiated with a DA a reduction of charges from a 6 point speeding to a non-speeding violation without me having to appear in court in person.

Monica, Seth's paralegal, kept me informed of all necessary details throughout the whole two month process and I received a response to every email that I sent to the firm.

I would highly recommend Seth's firm for anyone looking for reliable and professional attorney services.

I live just shy of NYC and got a traffic ticket in this law firms jurisdiction while upstate for a wedding. Traveling several hours north to attend traffic court wasn't something that was possible for me with my hectic work schedule in healthcare. Azria & Bruffett handled my case without me ever having to be physically present and were able to drop my ticket to a small fine with zero points on my liscence. Money well spent.
