Speeding Ticket


What is the real cost of a speeding ticket? How much impact will this ticket have on your future? Is it worth it to fight it? This is a decision that you should only make after speaking to an experienced attorney. Before you decide to admit guilt and pay the fine, you need to understand the consequences. Points can quickly add up impacting your ability to work as a commercial driver. The two or three points you will receive from this ticket are significant, both now and in the future.

Points will be added to your driver’s license and increase your insurance premiums. Depending on what type of car you drive this could be a significant amount. Keep in mind that fines double in construction zones and can be in excess of $1000.00. If you do not pay the fine, an arrest warrant will be issued and you can be picked up any time, any place and taken into custody.

Accumulating twelve demerit points in a twelve month period will result in your license being suspended for 6 months. Traffic school can remove up to three points, but can only be done once in a twelve month period. Speeding tickets are moving violations and this type of traffic crime are dealt with more harshly than minor driving infractions. In some cases moving violations can be reduced to a non-moving violation. Non-moving violations will not add points to your license.
