Ohio Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions
by Seth Azria on 11/03/2014
An Ohio driver convicted of a moving violation in New York will not acquire points on their Ohio license. However, the conviction will appear on the Ohio driving record, where your insurance company might consider it.
Regardless of the reaction by Ohio or your insurance company, points in New York add up fast, which then leads to an expensive bill - no matter where you are licensed. If you accumulate 6 points in any 18 month period - you will be charged a “driver responsibility assessment” of $300 in addition to the original fine even with an Ohio licence.
For example, a single conviction for speeding 86 mph in a 65mph zone. Please check out our article on the NYS Driver Point System for a list of common traffic violations with points assigned and other relevant information for traffic violations.
If you have been ticketed in New York, do not plead guilty, call (315) 364-1155 to speak to an attorney in order to minimize the impact of that ticket in NY and at home.
