How can a speeding ticket affect me?

Every day people get into their cars to get from one location to another. It is the job of the police to monitor the roads for safety. When drivers are breaking road laws by driving recklessly, police are the ones who are supposed to be monitoring them and enforcing the laws. When drivers are caught breaking the laws, they can be given a ticket. With tickets, drivers may face penalties, such as fines that can become increasingly expensive. When you are charged with speeding and are issued a ticket because of it, in addition to fines, you may also face points on your license and the possibility of other surcharges. Once these penalties are applied, your insurance company may also increase your car insurance. This can lead to a buildup of bills. With all these bills, you may become financially overwhelmed.

How many points can I get on my driving record?

Drivers that operate a motor vehicle at speeds that are over the legal speed limit may be charged with speeding. Speed limits are in place to protect drivers and everyone else on the road. They are provided as a guideline based on the road conditions present and for creating a safe roadway for travel. With an increased speed over the limit, drivers can be charged with more points on their license.

If drivers are found going one to 10 miles per hour over the speed limit, they may face a three-point violation on their driving record. At 11 to 20 miles per hour over the speed limit, drivers may face four points on their license. Increased speeds of 21 to 30 miles per hour over the limit can lead to a six-point violation. As the speed increases, the points on your license may increase as well. With speeds 31 to 40 miles per hour over the limit, there may be an eight-point violation in your future. When the miles per hour over the limit reaches over 41 miles per hour, this can cause an 11-point violation. With 11 points on your license within an 18-month period, your license may be suspended.
