Speed Enforcement

Exceeding the posted limit or driving too fast for conditions is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes.

Speed is a factor in nearly one-third of all fatal crashes. Speed related fatalities in New York State have been on the decline.

Factors such as technological safety improvements to vehicles, improved road engineering, and economics have a hand in the overall trend, but enforcement and education have always been major contributors to reducing fatalities.

Points on License

The Driver Violation Point System gives the New York State DMV a way to identify and take action against high risk drivers. 

The DMV assigns points for certain traffic violations, including speeding. If you get 11 points in an 18-month period, your driver license may be suspended.
