Why You Shouldn’t Pay a Speeding Ticket
Why don't you just pay the little speeding ticket because you almost never get caught for it?
Why You Shouldn’t Just Pay a Speeding Ticket
Speeding fines can have long-term consequences, including insurance issues and demerit points. A speeding penalty has a three-year driving record suspension and a two-year demerit point period.
Additionally, a speeding penalty may have unstated consequences such as:
- licence suspensions for novice drivers
- Increased insurance rates
If you contest a speeding citation, it may be dropped, postponed, or lowered, maintaining the integrity of your driving and insurance records. Many novice police officers could think that you'll pay the penalty and avoid having to appear in traffic court if they decrease the charge to zero points...
The Compounding Affect of Speeding Tickets
People who claim they have never received a speeding ticket before and are unlikely to do so in the future have been heard and seen by us.
The ticket remains on the insurance after payment for a period of three years. The impact of the ticket on the driver's insurance is negligible.
The motorist received a second traffic penalty within three (3) years, something they did not anticipate or plan for.
The impact on insurance is compounded by the second ticket, raising insurance premiums.
A third incident will result in the driver's insurance premiums being raised to high risk if there is an accident or any claims made to the policy during that time.Back Home
