Suffolk County and Nassau County Driver Responsibility Assessment
New York State rates traffic violations on a point system. More severe violations accrue more points. A driver who accumulates more than six points in 18 months can have their license suspended and be subject to a $300 fine.
You will be subject to even higher fines and penalties if you collect additional points due to speeding tickets or other moving violations. It takes 11 points in 18 months to be subject to a license suspension of at least six months. You can receive eleven points in just three speeding tickets.
Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol
If your traffic violation involved alcohol or drug use, or if you refused to take a sobriety test, you will need to pay a Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee.
