Right to Drive & Insurance Rates

Lawyers Counteracting the Impact of Traffic Violations

When people have amassed points on their New York driver's license because of multiple or serious traffic violations, including DWI , they are often worried about two things: Am I going to lose my license? What will happen to my car insurance? If you have accumulated six points within an 18-month period, you will receive a "driver responsibility assessment," a fine of a minimum of $100 that you will have to pay for three years. Once you have 11 points within 18 months on your driver's license, you risk license suspension and fines. Your automobile insurance company may also either increase your rates dramatically, refuse to renew your insurance or even drop you altogether — forcing you into an assigned risk pool and making you pay an exorbitant rate of car insurance.
