Effect on Insurance Rate

When you choose not to fight a traffic ticket,
it affects your insurance rate.

A insurance industry standard “rule of thumb” for calculating the increased costs of paying a ticket is:

(Fine + Fifty)  x Five

Example:

Let’s say you choose to pay a $200 speeding ticket. To estimate the impact of this decision on your auto liability insurance rates over the next 5 years, do the math. The result is a stunning $1,250.00 in additional insurance premiums due to this single moving violation conviction. That is why it is so important to keep tickets off of your driving record.
