The Driver Violation Point System
The New York DMV enacts a point system to hold high-risk drivers accountable. The point system is added to a license for violations such as these common moving violations, including speeding, reckless driving, improper or unsafe lane changes, as examples. If you receive more than 11 points in 18 months, the DMV can suspend your license.
Important notes about the point system:
- You must have already been convicted of the traffic violation before it is placed on your record
- Your accumulated point total is based on the date the violation occurred, not the date of conviction
It is important that you contact our team at Letterio, Shedden & Haug, LLP right away if you need assistance with fighting your traffic ticket. We are ready to fight aggressively on your behalf.
