Kentucky Drivers: Effect New York Traffic Ticket Convictions

by Seth Azria on 4/06/2020
Syracuse, NY Traffic Ticket Lawyer Represents drivers from Kentucky

Kentucky Will Include Certain NY Convictions 

Non-CDL Speeding Tickets Not Transferred 

Kentucky has a nuanced position when it comes to recording out-of-state traffic ticket convictions. First, New York speeding ticket convictions do not transfer points to Kentucky. However, if the driver has a CDL,  the points for a speeding ticket will transfer. Kentucky’s Points System

All Other Moving Violations Transfer Points 

Second, while a speeding ticket does not transfer points, all other “moving hazardous violations” received in another state do transfer to Kentucky. For example; texting while driving - 3 points; Improper lane usage - 3 points; failure to yield to an emergency vehicle- 4 points; or stop sign violation - 3 points. In Kentucky, accumulating 12 points in a two year period will cause a suspension.  

Out-of-State Tickets Must be Satisfied

Regardless of whether Kentucky records a conviction, if a Kentucky driver does not take care of an out-of-state ticket, Kentucky’s Division of Driver Licensing will serve notice upon their driver to do so within 30 days. If no action is taken, the Kentucky license will be suspended.

Insurance Premiums Always a Concern

As with most all states, because Kentucky and New York share traffic information, one should assume that an insurance carrier will learn of the convictions. Increased insurance premiums are the primary concern for most drivers and rightfully so.

Had 2 tickets that he helped get rid of the points added onto my license. Very helpful and friendly about answering questions on the process. He went in place for me in court and defended. All I had to do was email him information over email (and pay of course).

Seth Azria and his team are the absolute BEST in the game. During the initial consultation Mr. Azria was very thorough in explaining the whole process and possible outcomes. The fees were VERY reasonable. The level of responsiveness was superb. Kudos to Monica as well!!!! - I appreciate all of your assistance. It’s never fun to get a ticket out of state. But thanks to this team, they turned a stressful incident into a quick, easy and painless situation. I would HIGHLY recommend this firm to anyone who is looking for an attorney in the area.
