Are you licensed in Canada or another state but were ticketed in New York? Our lawyers may be able to resolve your high speed ticket without you having to return to the area. To learn more about what we can do to help — contact our firm today.
If an officer determines that your speed was excessive (far higher than the posted limit and too fast for conditions), you may also be given a citation for reckless driving. Reckless driving is a separate offense that has its own penalties. To give you a general idea of what New York’s penalties are for excessive speeding, see the chart below:
|Speed||Maximum Sentence||Approximate Fine||Driving Points|
|11-20 mph over||15 days||$300||4|
|21-30 mph over||15 days||$300 plus||6|
|31-40 mph over||30 days||$600 plus||8|
|41+ mph over||30 days||$600 plus||11|
Weather Conditions And Location May Affect The Punishments
Keep in mind that different traffic courts may have different fines for speeding. What counts as excessive speed or reckless driving may depend on the context.
For instance, if there has been a snowstorm and the road conditions are terrible, you could be given a speeding ticket, even if you were not driving faster than the posted speed limit. Similarly, driving 11 miles per hour over the speed limit on an interstate is not the same as driving 11 miles per hour over the speed limit on a residential street, near a school or around a road construction work zone.
In any case, our knowledge of New York’s traffic laws and local traffic courts have helped us to get tickets dismissed, speeds reduced and tickets changed to non-moving violations for many of our previous clients.
