When playing a sport, typically the more points you get, the better. However, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles issues points on your license for certain types of traffic violation convictions. And like golf, when it comes to points on your license, the less points you have, the better.

New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed limits and sets out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The fine that a court may assess is based on the specific traffic violation stated on the ticket, the ticketed speed, and the number of previous convictions.

Some of the most common violations under the DMV point system:

Speeding (1 – 10 MPH over posted limit): 3 points
Speeding (11 – 20 MPH over posted limit): 4 points
Speeding (21 – 30 MPH over posted limit): 6 points
Speeding (31 – 40 MPH over posted limit): 8 points
Speeding (more than 40 MPH over posted limit): 11 points

Did you receive a ticket in Cheektowaga Town Court?

It is not uncommon for an individual to attempt to defend a traffic violation by themselves without knowing the procedure and customs of the local court system. However, oftentimes a person who represents themselves risks missing important deadlines, notices, and court proceedings because they are not familiar with the court rules and legal documents involved in any given case. Without an understanding of local courtroom rules and customs, people that choose to represent themselves, due to their lack of knowledge of these rules and customs, often, unintentionally offend a judge or district attorney.
