Were You Issued a Ticket During the Past Week-long Crackdown on Speeding in NYS? Here is What You Should Know.

Last week, Governor Cuomo announced that there would be a week-long crackdown on speeding across New York State. As a result, police were making more patrols and were focused on ticketing individuals who were driving over the speed limit. To be exact, the crackdown was from August 6 to August 12.

When speaking about the decision to implement the crackdown, Governor Cuomo said, “Speed limits are not a suggestion, they are the law and they save lives. There is no excuse for driving at high speeds–it’s unnecessary and endangers everyone on the road–and I urge New Yorkers to be smart and slow down because it’s not worth risking lives to save a few seconds on your next commute or trip to the store.”

Many other officials spoke out about the crackdown, including State Police Superintendent Keith M. Corlett, who said in a statement, “There’s no getting around the facts: Speeding is dangerous behavior that needlessly results in deaths and serious injuries. During this campaign and through enforcement efforts all year, our goal is to reduce speed-related crashes and improve safe travel for everyone on New York’s roadways. We urge all drivers – do your part to improve safety and obey posted speed limits, drive defensively, and put away your smartphone when you’re behind the wheel.”

That being said, if you are someone who has recently been ticketed for speeding as part of this crackdown, there is a very good chance you are now worried about the consequences you may face. To start, you will most likely have pointed added to your license, which can boost your insurnace premiums for years to come. You may also have to pay high fines, and, if you are someone who has already accumulated points on your license, there is a very good chance you may have your license suspended. Rather obviously, this can be extremely damaging to various aspects of your life, including retaining employment.
