Any conviction for speeding greater than 16 mph over the speed limit may result in a suspension of your driver’s license. A single speeding ticket may result in adding 10 insurance points to your record which can mean an increase of up to 300 percent for your insurance coverage. This means if you were paying $350 you will instead pay $1,400.
In addition to helping you avoid driver’s license suspensions, our attorneys can work to minimize costly insurance increases.
