Out of State Resident and Non-New York Resident Tickets Attorney

Know Your Rights and Let Us Help You Fight New York Traffic Tickets

New York is a popular tourist destination year-round. This means that there is a constant influx of out-of-state residents driving around the city. More drivers on the road mean more potential traffic violations.

Although parking tickets are one of the most common traffic violations in New York, non-resident visitors may be subject to other convictions with more severe consequences.

People often think that if you pay your ticket, the violation goes away. Unfortunately, paying a traffic ticket right away is the best way to plead guilty. This can lead to other consequences such as points on your license, license suspension, and increased insurance rates.

Katz Lawyers can help you navigate the New York traffic system and understand your rights. Contact us by calling (212) 209-0869 and let us help you fight your traffic tickets.

What Happens When You Get a New York Traffic Ticket But Have an Out-of-State License?

Anyone with a traffic violation will receive points on their New York driving record, even with an out-of-state driver’s license. For non-New York residents, the state creates a unique ID number for the convicted driver. With this ID number, out-of-state drivers can accumulate points through the state of New York.

Too many points on your New York driving record can result in license suspension. This often includes a driving suspension in other states, including the one that issued your driver’s license. In some cases, the license-issuing state may recognize the points accumulated on your New York record and add them to your home state driving record.

Types of Traffic Violations

Each New York traffic violation will have varying consequences depending on the ticket and specific situation.

Moving violations

Drivers convicted of a moving violation will have their license suspended if they do not answer the ticket.

Alcohol or drug violations

Non-New York drivers convicted of alcohol or drug violations will need to contact their home state’s DMV for consequence details.

Criminal Violations

The state of New York will revoke the license of any driver convicted of criminal homicide, assault, or negligence resulting from driving a motorized vehicle.
