Our New Jersey Traffic Court Lawyer Explains Speeding Penalties for New York Drivers

The penalties for speeding vary from state to state, usually based on how fast you were going when you were stopped. If you are ticketed for speeding in your home state, you most likely know what to expect. Unfortunately, if you are from out of state, such as New York, you may be in for a surprise when you get home. As a New Jersey traffic court lawyer, I can explain what consequences to expect on your New York driver's license if you were caught speeding while visiting the Garden State.

New Jersey Speeding Penalties Compared to New York Penalties

Speeding penalties may vary from state to state. For example, in New Jersey, the penalties are as follows:

  • 1-14 mph over the limit: 2 points
  • 15-29 mph over the limit: 4 points
  • 30+ mph over the limit: 5 points

In New York, the penalties are:

  • 1-10 mph over the limit: 3 points
  • 11-20 mph over the limit: 4 points
  • 21-30 mph over the limit: 6 points
  • 31- 40 mph over the limit: 8 points
  • 41+ mph over the limit: 11 points

Fortunately, according to the DMV website, New York currently does not reciprocate points for out-of-state speeding tickets incurred by its drivers. If you are a New York driver who has received a speeding ticket in Southern New Jersey, have decided that you need an attorney to represent you, and are ready to take action, then click on this link to schedule a call with my office for a free consultation to discuss the importance of skilled legal representation.

Most matters can even be resolved without you appearing, so you can save the expense of traveling to New Jersey. You owe it to yourself to look into it.
