If you ask all of the people that you know, the odds are pretty good that a large majority of them has received a speeding ticket or two in their lifetimes. It is so common today that many people do not even think twice about it anymore. The problem is that many people take violations like this too lightly and it is only when they have several violations and lose their license that they realize this is a problem. That is why you have to take a speeding ticket seriously and do what you can to avoid getting a conviction. You should consult with a lawyer who knows how to help you resolve the ticket favorably and avoid any long term consequences.
A Speeding Ticket’s Damage
There can be a lot of problems that develop as a result of you getting a speeding ticket. Even if it is the first time you have ever received a speeding ticket, if you were speeding excessively and are convicted it can means that you will get points on your license. This goes on your driving record and if you get additional convictions it can lead to your license being suspended, taken away, and even possible jail time. All of these negative strikes against your driving record are not only reported to the state but also to your insurance company. They will, more than likely, end up significantly raising your premium rates or even drop you from their coverage altogether as a result of the tickets. In New York and many other states, the number of miles over the speed limit you are accused of traveling directly affects the consequences you face. Sometimes just one speeding ticket, if you are sufficiently over the speeding limit, can result in the loss of your license.
