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.

Yelp Review

I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I contacted Ralph Habib from the Azria & Bruffett group to represent me in my defense in connection with a speeding ticket. I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Habib and found him to be professional and diligent in this area of law. I felt his background and experience would undoubtedly be the right choice. Shannon Liparulo the Paralegal was great at keeping me informed as to the status and sharing the outcome of the case with me. She always answered and returned my calls and emails. I honestly recommend Mr. Ralph Habib and the team from Azria & Bruffett! Thank you Mr. Habib and Shannon. From Mel. S.

Take it from a Fellow Attorney, Seth Azria is wonderful and gets the job done.

I am an attorney working in the lower Hudson Valley. I had an unfortunate brush with the law on my birthday of all days! which resulted in my receipt of a speeding ticket en-route to a wedding in Buffalo. I'd never had any other infractions on my record and this offense is certainly not an area in which I specialize. I was very upset and worried but immediately upon calling Mr. Azria all of my fears and concerns melted away. Mr. Azria was able to plead my ticket down to a minor violation with no points and a small fee to the Court. Mr. Azria was quick, efficient and responsive. I never had a moment of worry that my case was being neglected. Mr. Azria and his team answered any questions that I had and kept me informed throughout the process. I could not have asked for a better team in my corner and you can't beat the price. You would have thought that I spent a small fortune for the quality of service that I received. Take it from me, Mr. Azria is the attorney you want representing you.

I was issued a speeding ticket in an area that I was unfamiliar with. We researched the law firms to help with reducing the charge of my ticket, since I had never received a speeding ticket before. The professionals at Azria and Bruffett were efficient, organized, and provided me with a comprehensive plan as to how they would handle my case. I was thrilled with the outcome - they were able to plea my case to a much more reasonable fine.

I can't thank them enough!

David Bruffett resolved serious Speeding Violation very smartely

I contacted Attorney David receiving a speeding ticket over 100mph in NY, being a NJ driver. David was very professional and very clear on how to handle the issue (had very high points ticket but thanks to David who turned a stressful incident into a quick, easy and painless situation). Within a few months the issue was resolved and we are entirely satisfied with the outcome. I must say that David's help, support and guidance was very professional as well! I highly recommend David, if you have any traffic speeding tickets in the NY state. I found his services remarkable. He delivered more then he promised and I guess that what makes any client happy!!!!!
