Responding To Speeding Tickets

Paying a traffic ticket is often the equivalent of pleading guilty. We recommend that you do not do either without speaking to an attorney. You may not understand the potential consequences for your driving record and auto insurance rates if you pay the ticket and get points on your driver's license. Fighting the ticket may protect your license and keep your insurance premiums from rising.

Speeding Ticket Points Can Add Up Quickly · You Can Lose Your License

We represent residents and people from other states who were ticketed in North Carolina. We have experience with tickets for violations such as:

  • Driving 10 and 20 mph or more over the speed limit
  • Speeding in excess of 55 mph
  • Driving 80 mph or more in a 70-mph zone
  • Speeding in school and work zones

Points will be added to your driving record for each offense. The accumulation of:

  • 12 points on your license in three years may cause your license to be suspended.

  • Eight points within three years following the reinstatement of your license can result in a second suspension.
  • Two speeding tickets in excess of 55 within 12 months can lead to your license being suspended.

In addition to a license suspension, speeding ticket points can increase your auto insurance rates. Each ticket can affect your insurance rates differently, but you can be sure that your rates will eventually rise if you accumulate too many tickets.
