I’m sorry to hear that you got pulled over. You typically will not get any points for a seat belt ticket in NY. You may be fined anywhere from $25 to $100 for the offense, though.
That said, you will get three license points if the person who was improperly restrained was under 16. If a child has not been properly restrained in the appropriate kind of seat, the driver will suffer the consequences on their driving record.
Sometimes, a traffic infraction will raise your insurance rates. To make sure you’re still getting the best deal, check out the Jerr​​y app, where you can see a list of car insurance quotes that work for you in minutes. The average user saves $887 per year.
