Have you been cited for speeding? Speeding tickets can have many different consequences for your driver’s license and insurance rates. How a speeding ticket will affect you depends on many different factors, including your driving record, the driving history of any other drivers on your insurance policy, your specific insurance plan, and how fast you were traveling. To achieve a favorable result in your case, it is essential to have an experienced attorney review all of these factors.
Although speeding tickets are very common, they can cause serious and unanticipated consequences. A single speeding ticket may cause a 90% increase in your insurance. Tickets for speeding in a school zone or work zone may result in high fines. You may be assessed up to three points on your driver’s license for each speeding ticket you receive, and when you reach twelve points, your license will be suspended. Similarly, if you are convicted of multiple speeding offenses within the same year, or if you are convicted of speeding over eighty miles per hour or more than fifteen miles per hour above the speed limit, you could lose your license for up to a year.
