Michigan Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 3/26/2020

NY Traffic Convictions Treated as if they Occurred in Michigan 

Michigan is not a part of the multi-state information sharing pact called the “driving license compact.” Nevertheless, according to the Office of the Secretary of State, it is likely that an out-of-state ticket will eventually show up on a Michigan driving record.  

The Secretary explained that if a driver is convicted out-of-state, and Michigan gives points or suspends for that particular offense, then those points or suspensions will occur in Michigan. 

Michiganders Must Take New York Traffic Tickets Seriously 

Some of the consequences may be:

  1. Michigan, will eventually add the NY conviction to the Michigan driving record. 
  2. All drivers ticketed in New York are subject to New York’s driver responsibility law that requires payment from any driver who accrues 6 or more points in any 18 month period. One speeding ticket 21mph over the limit is 6 points. And; 
  3. It is likely the Michigan insurance carrier will learn of the conviction and might raise premiums or drop coverage.

One speeding conviction may cause premiums to increase over $2,000 in three years. The Zebra.

Excellent experience with this law firm from Syracuse. Mr. Seth Azria Esq. handled my speeding ticket in Watertown, NY with no problem for a reasonable $ 250 fee and saved me a plethora of points and high insurance rates. It was difficult to be a tourist with an out of state license plate on a rental car and not being familiar with local speed traps of 30 mph.... I would use the Azria & Bruffett Law Firm again in a minute if I ever get another ticket in NY. It is especially handy that they will take credit cards over the phone or online. Some firms I checked with required cash and I had already left the state.

Azria & Bruffett did a very professional and effective job of dealing with my (out of state) speeding ticket in upstate NY. I was going 75 in a 65 which means multiple points along with a hefty fine. Ralph Habib was able to reduce the magnitude of my ticket down to a no points, non-moving violation. The paralegal Monica coordinated all of the communications and made it a very easy process for me. Fees were reasonable and competitive with other firms I shopped around at. I would recommend them to anyone else facing ticket issues as well.

Extremely pleased. On the initial call, everything was explained to me by Mr. Bruffet. True to his word, everything turned out to be just like he said it would. Highly recommended

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.
