Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Failing to stop at a stop sign is a three point violation in New York. You do not have to appear in court if you pay the ticket before the date on the ticket. In New York, the state will assess a fee once you reach 6 points in an 18-month period.

Please rate my answer positively to ensure I get credit for the time I spend helping. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.
