The True Cost Of A Speeding Ticket
Getting pulled over can really stress you out. After you have spoken to the officer and received a ticket, your trouble is only starting The first impact of a speeding ticket is going to be felt in your wallet. Gone are the days of tickets not costing all that much to pay. Today you are lucky if a ticket costs you less than a hundred dollars. This needs to be paid in full by a certain date or there will be consequences.
The penalty for not paying a ticket can be quite severe. You could be hit with an extra fine or even lose your driver's license for a set period of time. If you lose your license it can make you life very difficult.
How will you get to work? How will you get to the store to buy groceries? In some states you can choose to pay a lesser fine for your speeding ticket and take traffic school. Traffic school is not free. The cost varies but it usually isn't cheap If you do not have traffic school and want to try to keep the ticket off of your record one of your only other choices is to get legal representation. There are many car clinics advertised that are supposed to keep a speeding ticket off your record. Many times this involves paying a lawyer at least $100 to take the ticket to court.
The lawyer usually tries to keep pushing back the court date until the officer is unable to make it to testify. If you cannot afford a lawyer but still think you can beat the ticket you can go to court yourself. To do so you need to contact the courthouse and set up a court date. This will again take time away from your family or your job to fight the ticket. Unless you have a real good excuse or decent lawyer it is hard to get the ticket thrown out. Even if you are able to beat it you most likely will have to pay court costs.
Each driving infraction is assigned a certain point value. The more points you have the worse your driving record reads. Certain traffic violations give you more points. If you are going extremely fast in the eyes of officer that pulled you over you may receive a reckless driving ticket.
This type of ticket is usually assigned a high value of points and can really make your insurance rates go through the roof. If your insurance guidelines determine you have too many points they may decide to not renew you when your policy comes up. Even worse they might decide to cancel your policy altogether and now you will have to find another insurance company before you can drive your vehicle. It can really affect your work and other aspects of your life if you are without an insurance policy. A traffic ticket for speeding can cost you a lot.
Not only are you out the time it took for the officer to issue you the ticket. You are losing money on the price of the ticket, the traffic school you had to take or the lawyer you had to hire to get the ticket dismissed. If the ticket goes onto your driving record you insurance rates could be raised. If you do not take care of the ticket properly you could be out of a driver's license which will soon put you out of a job if you cannot get to work. Getting stopped for speeding has a price to be paid no matter how you look at it.
