How Much Does a Speeding Ticket Cost?

If you get a speeding ticket, you can expect to pay a fine of about $125 dollars, but even higher if you really had the peddle to the metal. But that’s not the only cost. Forbes Advisor did a report on the insurance costs of a ticket. The data shows just one speeding ticket can mean a 24% increase in insurance costs. That averages about $400 more a year.
