Common Traffic Violations in New York

Traffic violations in New York can vary from minor infractions to severe offenses, all carrying potential penalties that can greatly impact your driving record, insurance rates, and even your freedom. Understanding these common violations is crucial for New York drivers:

  • Speeding: One of the most common traffic violations, speeding can lead to hefty fines, points on your license, and increased insurance premiums. Excessive speeding can lead to more severe penalties, including potential license suspension.
  • Reckless Driving: Defined as driving in a way that unreasonably interferes with the free and proper use of the road or endangers users, reckless driving is a misdemeanor in New York. Penalties include fines, imprisonment, and points on your driving record.
  • Running a Red Light or Stop Sign: Ignoring traffic control devices can result in significant fines and points on your license. Repeated offenses could lead to more severe penalties.
  • Distracted Driving: Using a handheld electronic device while driving is illegal in New York. This includes texting, calling, or using any app. Violations could result in fines and points on your license.
  • Driving Without a License: Operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license can result in severe penalties, including fines and potential jail time.
  • Failure to Yield Right of Way: This violation often leads to accidents and carries penalties, including fines and points on your driving record.
  • Driving Without Insurance: New York law requires all drivers to have valid auto insurance. Violations can result in substantial fines, license suspension, and even vehicle impoundment.

New York DWI Laws

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is a serious offense in New York, with strict laws and severe penalties designed to deter impaired driving and protect public safety. Understanding these laws is critical for all drivers:

  • Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Limits: In New York, a driver is legally considered intoxicated with a BAC of 0.08% or higher.
  • Penalties for DWI: Penalties could vary based on the number of offenses and the driver’s BAC level. First-time offenders may face fines, license suspension, mandatory alcohol education classes, and possible jail time. Repeat offenders face harsher penalties, including longer license suspensions, larger fines, and extended jail sentences.
  • Chemical Test Refusal: New York has an implied consent law, meaning that by driving, you consent to submit to chemical testing if suspected of DWI. Refusal to take a breathalyzer or other chemical test results in automatic license suspension and fines.
  • Leandra’s Law: This law imposes harsh penalties for anyone caught driving drunk with a child under 16 in the vehicle, including a possible felony charge, even for first-time offenders.
