I received a failed to stop at stop sign ticket in Upstate New York what are the fines?


In New York failure to obey a traffic signal, a stop sign, or a yield sign is worth 3 points on your driving record.

In New York points are counted from the date of your traffic violation, not from the dates of your traffic convictions. A traffic conviction is required for the points to appear on your driver record. 18 months after the date of the violation, the points for that violation are removed from your point total. Moving violation convictions normally remain on a NYS driver record during the year that the conviction occurred and for the following three (3) calendar years.

The NYS DMV states one should follow the instructions on the traffic ticket, or contact the traffic court or Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) listed on the ticket for information on how to take care of the citation. You must respond to the ticket to prevent a suspension of your driver license or driving privileges.

Thus for the actual fine amount you will need to contact the court or TVB office listed on your ticket. While the state may have a main fine amount schedule and surcharge amount, it is usually up to the jurisdiction which you were ticketed to determine the final fine amount.
