NY Driver Responsibility Assessment Program

Seat Belts

Seat belt tickets are a common ticket for police officers to give to motorists in New York.  Seat belt tickets for adults are zero point tickets but do have a fine attached to them.  All drivers in New York are required by law to wear a seat belt.  Be aware that the penalty for driving while a child is not wearing a seat belt is much more severe.  A child seat belt ticket carries three points and a fine.  Make sure you and your passengers buckle up, it is the law and will help keep you safe while using the road.

If you receive a summons for a cell phone, disobey traffic device, or any other moving  violation, an experienced traffic ticket attorney can help. Please call us at 212-227-9008 or email us at
