NEW ROCHELLE COURT
The New Rochelle City Court handles large numbers of traffic ticket violations including speeding traffic because both Interstate 95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway pass through New Rochelle.
By far, speeding convictions take more New York drivers off the road than any other violation. New York State will suspend or revoke a motorist who has three or more speeding traffic ticket convictions (and/or misdemeanors) for violations that were issued within the same eighteen month period. Many operator’s are completely unaware of New York’s stringent rules requiring a six month revocation of one’s driving privileges once three speeding convictions have occurred. Strange as it may seem, a motorist could be off the road for six months with only five (5) points on his/her license. For example, if each of three speeding charges are bargained down to just five miles over the limit (60/55 mph zone) from a higher charge (i.e., 80/55 @ 6 points), the point total for each speed is only 3 (see chart within 1-10 mph over the limit is assessed three points) yielding 9 points before taking the Driver Safety Course which offers a four point reduction of the driver’s point total. Once the course is completed the motorist point total is only five (5) yet there is a six month revocation for having incurred three speeding traffic ticket (or misdemeanors) convictions within the same eighteen month period.
New York DMV doesn’t care how many miles a year you drive. The Sunday driver gets the same point allotment that a taxi driver receives. The Driver Responsibility Assessment is another surcharge on individuals who operate vehicles in N.Y. Now, if you are unlucky enough to have been found guilty of at least six points, there is a DMV surcharge of $300.00 payable at once or at the rate of $100.00 annually. Failure to pay will result in a suspension of your license to operate in New York State. This applies to out of state motorists as well. To add insult to injury, there is an additional charge of $25.00 per year for each of three years for each point exceeding six. For example, if one were to accumulate ten points, the annual surcharge would be $200 or $600 over the three years. Taking the Driver Safety Course does not result in a reduction of the surcharge.

New Rochelle is located in Westchester County, in the southeastern portion of New York State. New Rochelle was settled by Protestants in 1688 who were fleeing persecution in France. Many of the settlers were artisans and craftsmen from the city of La Rochelle, France, influencing the name New Rochelle.
In 2007, the city had a population of 73,260, making it the seventh largest in the state of New York. In 2008, New Rochelle was recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) as one of the 100 Best hiking Cities in America, and the second best in New York State next only to nearby New York City.
The New Rochelle City Court is responsible for all court matters which include traffic tickets including all moving violations; civil matters, criminal cases, and small claims cases.
