A speeding ticket around Independence and Bishop drives auto insurance
rates up an average of
20 percent for at least three years; that figure is well above the national average
and doesn’t necessarily include the loss of your good drivers discount.
NerdWallet looked at rates for 30-year-old women and men with clean driving
records, and compared them to rates for similarly-aged people with a speeding
ticket for 11-15mph over the limit. Things could be worse, because we
could live in North Carolina, where a single speeding ticket means a 62
percent rate hike. At 1 percent, New Hampshire was on the other end of
Study authors suggested that people shop around for lower rates and do
not hesitate to switch, even if it means changing companies.
100+MPH Speeding Tickets
NerdWallet probably looked at 11-15mph-over tickets because that’s
what most people get. California, like most other states, basically has
stair step speeding tickets, and the faster you are allegedly going, the
higher the fine and the larger the insurance rate spike. The big kahuna
of speeding tickets is a
VC 22348(b) infraction. Its $859 cost (fines plus penalty assessments) is almost twice
as much as a 26+mph-over ticket, which is the next lowest level, and the
VC 22348(b) fine goes up with each tick on the speedometer. Furthermore,
the infraction carries a possible drivers’ license suspension and
two points towards NOTS suspension, and traffic school cannot remove these points.
Sometimes, the state’s evidence is flawed, perhaps by a Radar gun
that wasn’t properly calibrated. But you shouldn’t rely on
just one defense on such an important ticket. You should be looking for
every technicality that could help you with your case.
