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.

Speeding Tickets x 2

Mr. Bruffet and his office staff handled 2 speeding tickets for me. One was last year and was moved to a non-moving violation and this last one was a significant reduction in points and surcharge. I am so pleased and have provided my healthcare firm with his information as we travel across Upstate NY on a daily basis. Highly recommend.

Extremely satisfied

I have hired the Azria law firm twice to represent my daughter, once for speeding and the other was an accident. Both times I was extremely pleased with the outcome, in both cases they were dropped to no pointers. Everything was handled through e-mail, which was very convenient and in both cases were taken care of from start to finish within a month. I would recomend them to anyone. Thank you again for all of your help.

A fantastic experience and wonderful representation. Got my ticket reduced to 70 in 65 with a very difficult judge. Original speeding ticket was significantly higher and I owe the reduction entirely to the A&B legal team - highly recommended!

Took care of business

I needed an expert to help me navigate a speeding ticket in the courts. I was from out of town and Seth was great at explaining the options. I left it in his hands and he was able to negotiate and took care of whatever was necessary. He made it extremely easy and I was happy with the results. Highly recommended.
