New York Traffic Fines & Penalities

Unlike those of most other states, traffic ticket fines in New York are not always spelled out for each violation. Rather, the fine depends on the category of the violation, your individual driving record, and many other factors.

For example, the state of New York includes surcharges depending on where the violation took place. The state also allows each county to generate its own rules for fines and fees, but they have to stick to the rules that the state sets out.

You might have to pay even more fees if you fail to pay your ticket on time. Even if you decide to fight your ticket—if you end up losing—you might still have to pay late payment penalties. It all depends on the date of your conviction.

Driver Responsibility Assessment (DRA) Fee

This point-based surcharge is added to your traffic tickets when you satisfy any of the following requirements:

  • You are convicted of an alcohol- or drug-related traffic violation.
  • You refuse to take a chemical test for blood alcohol content (BAC).
  • You receive 6 or more points on your license within an 18-month period.

How much you pay depends on the number of alcohol- or drug-related traffic convictions you have. Other factors include how many times you've refused to take a BAC chemical test and the total number of points on your license.
