Speeding tickets are one of the most common traffic violations that people get. So, here are some things you should know about speeding tickets:

  • A speeding ticket can impact both your driving record and your car insurance. When you get a speeding ticket, it adds points to your license, and after a certain number of points, your license will be suspended. In addition, your car insurance company can see any points added to your license and can decide to raise the cost of your insurance because of it.
  • Speeding tickets also come with a court date. If you hire an attorney, the attorney can go to court for you. In some cases, tickets can be waived, which means that you can pay the court fees and fines without having to appear in court; however, do keep in mind that waiving a ticket also means that you forfeit your ability to contest the ticket.
  • Different types of speeding tickets come with different consequences. For example, speeding in a school zone carries a heavier fine than most typical speeding over the limit tickets. 
  • How much you were going over the speed limit at the time of your ticket can also impact your fines, the level of points you get on your license, as well as the type of charge that you receive from this infraction. Going 15 miles or more over the speed limit and/or 80 MPH can lead to a class 3 misdemeanor charge.
