How Does the Point System Work In NYC

The Points System in New York

Defend Yourself with a NYC Traffic Ticket Lawyer

The New York DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) has a specific point system in place that is meant to regulate drivers who receive too many traffic violations. While certain traffic offenses may result in an immediate driver’s license suspension, other simple traffic tickets will result in a specific number of points being added to a driver’s record. Accumulate enough points in a specific time period and you may face heavy fines or license suspension.

The New York DMV lawyers at Gannes & Musico, LLP are highly experienced in dealing with the New York DMV point system. We understand that these points can have dramatic effects on a person due to increased insurance rates, fines or license suspension.

If you’ve received a traffic ticket of any kind, please take a moment to contact a traffic ticket lawyer at our firm today. We offer a free consultation to get you started.

Following are the number of points which the New York DMV may assess for specific moving violations:
