Receiving a traffic ticket may seem like a minor offense, but it is something that should be taken seriously. There are significant consequences that can have a far-reaching impact on your driving privileges in the state of New York, as well as your insurance rates.
Many people who receive traffic summons either ignore them or just plead guilty to them. While this may be the easiest approach it is often not the best approach. Consequences for traffic offenses range from:
- points on your license,
- higher insurance rates,
- the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license
- up to 15 days in jail for certain offenses
An additional penalty that one might not be aware of is the revocation of your driver’s license if you receive three speeding tickets within an 18-month period of time.
