Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee

In 2004, New York State started the “Driver Responsibility Program.”  It places an additional fine on drivers who accumulate a certain number of points from tickets issued in New York State.  You will be liable for this fine whether you have a New York State license or not, and it cannot be avoided by taking a driver responsibility course.  If you simply refuse to pay this fine, your driver’s license will be suspended until it is paid.  We can help you avoid this heavy financial burden (up to $525) by fighting to reduce the points associated with your traffic infraction, or get the infraction dismissed altogether.

The Point System

In New York State, each traffic infraction has a statutorily prescribed “point” value that accumulates on your driving record.  These points may result in fines, increased insurance rates, and possibly the loss of your privileges.  Points remain on your driver’s license for 18 months.  If you accumulate more than 10 points within an 18 month period you will lose your license for at least 6 months.

A typical speeding ticket for more than 20 mph over the speed limit can cost a driver thousands of dollars over a three year period as a result of increased insurance premiums.
