I presume they are both moving violations? and what about insurance points as per the initial question?
Traffic Lawyer: Sierra900, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hello,

I don't know what you mean about insurance points. The DMV assigns points and insurance companies evaluate it based on that, but how a particular insurance company does that is up to them.

The DMV point count which ultimately affects your license is listed in the table.

Insurance industry in NY is tightly regulated and it is not up to their discretion to assign the number of points for a given DMV violation. Thus I would like ot know how many "insurance" points are assigned for each of the above two violations in NY state?
Traffic Lawyer: Sierra900, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hello,

I'm trying to help, but as noted on the page (the link I sent you) "Insurance companies have their own point systems and can increase your premiums based on your driving record. Contact your insurance company for more information."

I would have no way to know or ascertain how your insurance company would assess impact to your policy from these tickets.
