A NY speeding traffic ticket should not be taken lightly. Points on your license will result in fines and can result in an increase in your insurance premiums and the possible suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. A loss of license can mean you lose your job. Worse yet, are high-speed tickets which will cause higher point totals and higher insurance premiums.
