Speeding Tickets

Speeding tickets are the most common traffic violation. Before listening to “legal advice” from a police officer or friend, consider the negative impact that a speeding ticket can have on your license and insurance rates.

Most people are not aware that the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles has the ability to temporarily suspend your driver’s license for certain speeding violations. For example, a speeding conviction of traveling over 20 mph in a posted speed limit of 35 mph, or a speeding conviction of over 15 mph in a posted speed limit of 55 mph, or more, can both have this effect.

The area of highest concern for many clients is how a speeding ticket will affect their insurance rates. Accumulating points depends on your ticket and your record and most certainly can have a serious impact on your insurance rates, both short term and long term.
