Traffic Violations

A person’s driving record reveals whether or not they have been in any accidents, been convicted of any moving violations or received any DWI’s. While receiving a ticket for a traffic violation may result in fines and points against one’s driver’s license, there may also be other less obvious consequences. At The Law Offices of Zev Goldstein, PLLC, we understand that keeping a clean driving record is essential for New York drivers for many reasons.

According to Wallet Hub, a person’s driving record is the single most important factor when it comes to rates for auto insurance premiums. Someone with multiple tickets and many points will likely end up paying substantially more for car insurance than a person with a clean driving record.

However, insurance carriers are not the only ones who may be interested in a person’s driving history. Employers are becoming increasingly interested in performing background checks on potential employees. While people whose jobs entail operating a vehicle may expect a prospective employer to investigate their driving history, some companies may perform checks on employees whose positions are not transportation-related. A DWI or reckless driving charge may cause a hiring manager to view an applicant as irresponsible or untrustworthy, and therefore not desirable as an employee. In addition, if a driver finds themselves in court facing even minor charges, a bad driving history may factor into a judge’s decision during sentencing.

While some points may expire from a person’s driving record after a certain amount of time, it is obviously better to not have any on there to begin with. For more information on keeping your driving record clean, please visit our web page.
