Michigan Drivers: Impact of New York Traffic Convictions

by Seth Azria on 3/26/2020

NY Traffic Convictions Treated as if they Occurred in Michigan 

Michigan is not a part of the multi-state information sharing pact called the “driving license compact.” Nevertheless, according to the Office of the Secretary of State, it is likely that an out-of-state ticket will eventually show up on a Michigan driving record.  

The Secretary explained that if a driver is convicted out-of-state, and Michigan gives points or suspends for that particular offense, then those points or suspensions will occur in Michigan. 

Michiganders Must Take New York Traffic Tickets Seriously 

Some of the consequences may be:

  1. Michigan, will eventually add the NY conviction to the Michigan driving record. 
  2. All drivers ticketed in New York are subject to New York’s driver responsibility law that requires payment from any driver who accrues 6 or more points in any 18 month period. One speeding ticket 21mph over the limit is 6 points. And; 
  3. It is likely the Michigan insurance carrier will learn of the conviction and might raise premiums or drop coverage.

One speeding conviction may cause premiums to increase over $2,000 in three years. The Zebra.

These guys did a great job reducing my speeding ticket to a no point muffler violation. All I can say is "Wow!"

Google Review

I worked together with Mr. Seth Azria on a traffic ticket and my ticket was just dismissed. I would highly recommend Mr. Seth and his company. I deeply admire him for his professionalism, responsiveness and positive result. Thank you again and wish you all the best.

Extremely Satisfied

I have hired the Azria law firm twice to represent my daughter, once for speeding and the other was an accident. Both times I was extremely pleased with the outcome, in both cases they were dropped to no pointers. Everything was handled through e-mail, which was very convenient and in both cases were taken care of from start to finish within a month. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you again for all of your help.

Hire Seth!!

I received a speeding ticket in upstate New York (30 mph above speed limit) - this was a 6 point hike on my insurance + fines up to $385. I hired Seth over the phone (I live out-of-state), paid my fees, and crossed my fingers. Wow. My case was resolved in around a month to 0 points and a fine of $135. 100% of my communication after our initial call was over e-mail.
