Question:

If you fail to address a traffic citation that you received in any state except Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, or Wisconsin, your New York State driver license will be

A suspended.
Explaination

New York State is a member of the Non-Resident Violator Compact. If you get a traffic citation in another member state, you may return to New York State without posting bail and deal with the citation later. However, if you fail to answer the out-of-state citation, New York State may suspend your driver license until you do answer it. Washington, DC and all US states except Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, and Wisconsin are members of the Non-Resident Violator Compact.
