Traffic Violations

If you are a New York driver who, during an 18-month period, has received six points on your license, you could be assessed an annual fee for three years known as a driver responsibility assessment. However, if you are not wealthy or do not have any savings to fall back on, fees such as these can place an undue financial burden on you. At the Law Offices of Zev Goldstein, PLLC, we understand that your hard-earned money is important to you and that paying costly yearly fees may not always be feasible.

Should you not be able to pay the driver responsibility assessment, you may not be left with many options. According to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles, failure to pay the annual fee can result in your license being suspended. Not being able to drive may keep you from getting to your job, or if you choose to drive with a suspended license and get caught, you could find yourself facing serious consequences including jail time.

It should also be noted that in addition to traffic offenses, you could be hit with a driver responsibility assessment fee if you were pulled over for DUI and refused to take a breath test or blood test, or if you have a DUI conviction relating to a snowmobile, boat or an automobile.

Since no information about the driver responsibility assessment is included on your ticket, you may not even be aware of it until the amount is due. In addition, if any additional points are incurred against your license within a certain timeframe, the amount of the fee will go up.
