Speeding violations can lead to an accumulation of driving points that can eventually lead to the suspension of your drivers license. Many people don’t realize it, but traffic tickets like these can cost you more than just hefty fines. If you lose your license, it might be difficult to get to work and earn your living. Your everyday life can turn upside-down.
If you have received a speeding ticket, do not pay your fine until you consult with a Bronx speeding ticket lawyer from the Law Office of James Medows. We might be able to help you get your violation dismissed or significantly reduced to save you both points and money. In the long run, it is typically more expensive to admit guilt and get convicted than it is to hire a lawyer to fight for your rights.
A Speeding Ticket Will Affect Your Drivers License
In the Bronx, getting a speeding ticket doesn’t just result in a monetary fine, it will also mean that points will be added to your driving record. Depending on how much over the speed limit you were going, points accumulated can be anywhere from three to eleven.
The number of points you receive will be determined according to the following list:
Eleven points received within eighteen months will get your license suspended for a minimum of six months. Also, if you are convicted of three speeding violations within an eighteen-month period, your license will also be suspended. Since you never know what the future will hold, you should fight every citation with help from a Bronx speeding ticket lawyer.
Points accumulated on your drivers license can cause serious consequences. The fines are also hefty, going up to $600. On top of that, your insurance premium will increase for as long as your points and conviction remain on your record. While the initial fine is bad enough, you’ll continue to pay for a ticket long after being convicted.
Depending on how much over the speed limit you were driving, the standard fines are as follows:
Furthermore, if you receive six points or more, you will be assessed a driver’s responsibility assessment, costing you an additional $300. If you are above six points, then $25 for each additional point will be added. Your best chance for avoiding all of these costs is working with a Bronx speeding ticket lawyer to overturn or reduce your citation.
