In our experience, the typical fine for a speeding ticket in Binghamton usually ends up being about $150.00. Remember, however, that a fine is only one of the several financial consequences you face if you are convicted or plead guilty to a speeding violation. Not only is a mandatory State Surcharge of $80-$85 attached to every speeding conviction but you may also be required to pay a $300 (minimum) Driver Assessment Fee to New York DMV for excessive points.
