Why Did My Insurance Go Up After a Speeding Ticket?

After you get a speeding ticket, your insurance premiums will likely go up. This is because your insurance company will see you as a higher risk to insure. They will assume that if you are willing to break the law by speeding, you are more likely to get into an accident.

Here are a few ways your insurance can be affected by a speeding ticket:

  • Increased premiums: Your insurance premiums will likely increase after a speeding ticket. The exact amount depends on the severity of the ticket and your driving record. The more tickets you have, the more you will have to pay.
  • Losing discounts: Many insurance companies offer discounts to drivers who have a clean driving record. After a speeding ticket, you will likely lose those discounts.
  • Policy cancellation: If you have too many speeding tickets, your insurance company may choose to cancel your policy. You will then have to find another insurance company.

After you get a speeding ticket, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you fight the charges. They can help you understand the potential consequences and work with you to build a strong defense.

Speeding Ticket Legal Consequences

Speeding ticket consequences can vary depending on a few factors. If you have a clean driving record, you may just have to pay a fine. However, if you have a history of speeding, you may face more severe penalties.

Here are a few legal consequences of speeding tickets:

  • Fines: Speeding tickets can be expensive. In some cases, the fines can be as high as $1,000. The amount you have to pay depends on the state you live in and the severity of the offense.
  • Points on your license: In New York and New Jersey, you will get points on your license after a speeding ticket. The more points you get, the closer you are to losing your license.
  • License suspension: If you have too many points on your license, your license may be suspended. This means you will not be able to legally drive in your state.
  • Increased insurance premiums: After a speeding ticket, your insurance premiums will likely go up. This is because insurance companies see you as a higher risk to insure. They will assume that you are more likely to get into an accident.
  • Required traffic school: In some cases, you will be required to attend traffic school after a speeding ticket. This can be both time-consuming and expensive.

As you can see, the consequences of a speeding ticket can be severe. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you understand the potential consequences and work with you to build a strong defense.
