If you get a speeding ticket when you are traveling in a different state from where you reside, you cannot just ignore the out of state speeding ticket. You also should think twice about simply paying it, even if that is a tempting prospect because it seems like the easiest solution.
Many people get speeding tickets when traveling in New York, and traveling back to the city or the state can seem like a major hassle when you could just pay a fine for the ticket. However, there are serious downsides to just admitting that you broke the state’s rules on speeding. You need to consider the pros and cons of paying your fine versus fighting the ticket — which means you need to know the downsides of both options.

Throughout the United States, there are agreements between the majority of states to share information about driving offenses committed locally. The Drivers License Compact, for example, is an interstate agreement that both New York and New Jersey participate in, among numerous other participating states. The Compact allows for information to be shared about moving violations, license suspensions and other traffic violations or traffic crimes.
Because of the Drivers License Compact, if you get a ticket outside of New York, New York will be notified if that is where your license is from. Likewise, New York will notify your home state of a conviction for violating the rules of the road. Your own state will give you points on your local license upon your conviction for a speeding ticket in any locale, which could potentially put you at risk of a driver’s license suspension if you get too many points in too short of a time.
License points and a black mark on your driving record can result in disqualification from jobs mandating a clean driving record and can lead to higher auto insurance costs. These consequences can follow you for a long time. And, of course, you’ll also have to pay the fines associated with the speeding ticket in the state where you were ticketed.
If you hope to avoid these or other undesirable consequences of out-of-state speeding tickets, you will need to vigorously defend yourself when accused of going too fast.

We can try to resolve your case with the minimum trips back to New York to fight for your rights, and we can help you to put together a solid case to try to avoid a guilty verdict for speeding.
Don’t put your driver’s license at risk and potentially affect your ability to drive in your home state just because you got a ticket in New York. Instead, give us a call to find out how our experienced, skilled New York speeding ticket lawyers can help you to respond in the most appropriate way possible to an out of state speeding ticket.
