Out-of-State Traffic Tickets
Getting a traffic ticket in another state can be much more complicated than you think. Each state has its own traffic laws and making sense of them can be extremely challenging.
Most states share driving information with each other, but a small minority will not. Some states have point systems while others do not. Likewise, some will put demerit points on your driver’s license for an out-of-state traffic offense while others will not.
Does the law require you to pay the fine to your home-state or the state you got the traffic ticket in?
Which point system does the law go by if points are assessed on your license for an out-of-state traffic ticket?
Keeping all of this straight can be really tough. That’s where we come in.
In order to combat all of the misinformation out there (and there is quite a lot), we have dedicated an entire section of our website to carefully and precisely explaining how certain states deal with out-of-state traffic tickets. We took the time to research the most up-to-date information in order to save you the hassle of doing so.
Since many of our clients are New York drivers, we decided to focus our attention on the states and provinces in and around that area. Each page highlights the way a particular place handles out-of-state traffic tickets and provides detailed information regarding how New York views them.
Out-of-State Tickets Have Ramifications
No matter what state you are licensed in or what laws your state adheres to, receiving an out-of-state traffic ticket can cause your car insurance rates to go up dramatically and you could face a suspension.
It is important to understand that certain states can take away your right to drive in them if you are an out-of-state driver. Similarly, depending on what state you are licensed in, committing a serious out-of-state violation can lead to your license being suspended entirely.
