Distracted Driving in New York: What All Drivers Need to Know

Distracted Driving means Using a Cell Phone or Portable Electronic Device Driving distracted is dangerous and in recent years New York State has taken notice and has made the vehicle and traffic law more strict. Increased penalties for cell phone use and “texting” while driving apply to all drivers and include an increase from a 3-point to a 5-point assessment on the New York driving record for convictions for using a cell phone (NY VTL §1225c2a) or using a portable electronic device (NYC VTL §1225d). For new drivers in their probationary period, a conviction for...

Florida Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

A Florida driver will receive points on their Florida record  from a ticket in New York, if Florida assesses points for that violation. For example, if a Florida driver received a ticket in New York for speeding 86 in a 65 zone, New York would assess 6 points and Florida would assess 4 points. For a speeding violation more than 15 miles over the limit Florida will assess 3 points. Our goal at Azria & Bruffett is to minimize the affect of your New York traffic ticket both in New York and in your home state.

Court Assessed Fines for NY Speeding Convictions

New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed restrictions and sets out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The amount the fine that a court may assess is based on the specific section stated on the ticket, the speed over the limit, and the number of previous convictions. The fines are in addition to the state surcharge (currently $85), DMV points, and any adverse affect a speeding conviction may have on your insurance premiums and/or coverage. If you have 3 speeding convictions in any 18 month period, the DMV will suspend your driving license. And then...

Pennsylvania Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

The Pennsylvania DMV does not assign points if a moving violation is committed out-of-state. However, if the out-of-state ticket is not taken care of in a timely manner, suspension of the Pennsylvania driver’s license could result. While Pennsylvania does not assign points to a driving record from out of state convictions they do honor suspensions from other states. Even if you are NOT licensed in New York State, the New York State DMV will fine you if you accumulate 6 points in any 18 month period - these fines are called “driver responsibility assessments (DRA)”. The New...

Ohio Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

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.

For example, a single...

Can you help if I already pleaded guilty to my traffic ticket?

New York Points for Speeding Tickets and Traffic Infractions

The New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) keeps track of NY driving records with a point system.  Many traffic violations and all speeding ticket convictions have points associated with them. Points mean fees, revocation, suspension, and can cause increases in your insurance premiums. Our goal is to protect your record from points by a securing a dismissal or negotiating a plea bargain to a reduced charge with less or no points.

Mr. Azria is a thorough professional that explained me the complete process up to the dismissal of my case. Shannon in the office is a true gem. The entire process was handled with complete and clear explanation in each email. Highly recommend them for your traffic issues.

Highly recommended

Mr. Azria did a great job handled my speeding ticket! All it took was a quick telephone call and he took care of everything. He got my charge (and fine) reduced and I did not have to appear in court. Everything was handled via telephone & email.

Mr. Azria was great to deal with and he did exactly what he promised for a very reasonable fee. I hope I don't need him again, but I strongly recommend him.

David Bruffett resolved 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. I guess that what makes any client happy.

Attorney for client on Long Island

Mr. Bruffett was very extremely knowledgeable about handling my speeding ticket. I did not know whom he was, he took my phone call personally and then had my ticket dismissed. The fact that he spoke with me personally made me feel very comfortable. His paralegal always handled my questions promptly and courteously. I couldn't be happier with Mr. Bruffett's handling of my ticket for me. I didn't have to appear in a court appearance which would have cost me a day's pay. So, I hope that if you find yourself in need of a traffic attorney.. this is your GUY!
