North Carolina Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 3/20/2020

North Carolina Typically Treats New York Tickets as If they Happened in NC

New York and North Carolina both signed the Driver License Compact and therefore share traffic ticket conviction information. When North Carolina receives conviction information from New York, it will generally record it as if the violation occurred in North Carolina.  Therefore, traffic convictions in New York can cause a suspended license in North Carolina.

North Carolina Suspension Rules

  • North Carolina will suspend a license for 60 days for accumulating 12 points in 3 years, speeding over 55 mph is 3 points. 
  • Two convictions of speeding 55mph over the limit within one year  will cause a 30 day suspension. 
  • Or one conviction for speeding over 75mph, in some cases, may cause a suspension. 

Call a NY Traffic Ticket Lawyer

North Carolina‚Äôs rules with respect to speeding are quite strict and NC drivers ticketed in New York should take care to seek the largest reduction possible. Illegal parking and illegal muffler are two violations that North Carolina does not assess points. These two violations are also quite popular as reductions among prosecutors in New York.  

Please call us at (315) 364-1155 for a complementary case evaluation to see if your ticket might be reduced to no points or dismissed.

I have hired Ralph Habib to represent me for a speeding ticket I received in NY. He was able to reduce my points and I only had to pay a minimal court fine. I am very pleased with the result and would definitely recommend Ralph's services for traffic related court matters.
