Mailing in the fine on your original speeding ticket is an automatic conviction, equivalent to pleading guilty. This can add unnecessary and costly points on your driving record, which will stay there for years and may lead to increased insurance premiums, increased fines, and even loss of driving privileges.
At Law Office of John M. Dudziak, PC, we understand how important it is to take every traffic violation seriously. Our experienced Traffic Ticket Lawyer in Buffalo is dedicated to protecting your interests, and minimizing any fines, surcharges, and points on your license. It may seem easy to simply plead guilty, mail in the ticket, and accept fault. However, once you have a driving conviction on your record, if you’re ever pulled over for a traffic violation in the future, it makes negotiating reductions on those infractions much more difficult, and the fines can increase quite significantly.
- In New York State, if you accumulate 6 points on your driving record in an 18 month period, you will automatically be required to pay $100 per year for the next 3 years.
- If you accumulate any more points during that 3 year period, you will be required to pay an additional $75 per point for 3 years.
