Did You Receive a Ticket?

If you’ve received a traffic ticket, you likely think of it as a minor issue. You intend to pay the fine so you can move on with your life. However, the impact of the ticket can cost you money that you didn’t know about and also follow you for years. A simple ticket can lead to higher insurance rates, and you could even lose your license. For example, if you receive six points within 18 months, you will be fined over $300 by the New York DMV, and this has nothing to do with your court fines.
