The speeding ticket is a separate issue. If you don't have insurance you get done for driving without insurance, speeding or not.

Yes, you can get a ticket. And just like if you were driving your own car, you can risk having points on your record and an increase in insurance.

Same as any other car. The ticket is issed to the DRIVER - not the CAR.

Insurance rates are based primarily on your personal driving habits and record, so if you receive a ticket while driving a rental car it can still be reported to your insurance company because the citing officer has your drivers license information. So in short, it is definitely possible for your insurance company to raise your rate based on a speeding ticket you received while driving a rented vehicle.

That's a first. I have never heard of any insurance paying for a speeding ticket. The person driving is responsible regardless of it being a rental car or not.

YOU the driver will be responsible to pay the ticket.

A speeding ticket can have a large impact on someone's monthly car insurance rate. This is because the rate increases because speeding is associated with reckless driving.

No. Speeding tickets are issued to the driver not the vehicle.

Your driving record is one of many things that can cause your insurance rates to rise. A speeding ticket can only raise your rates and will never lower them.

- If you get a speeding ticket while driving someone else's car will it affect her insurance. - No affect her insurance. You pay the fine or you go to court for that. - will her insurance company be notified? - No. If you drive her car with the expired lisence plate you pay the fine.

You can fight any ticket. Winning in court is another thing. I would get the speedometer discrepancy documented and then get a lawyer.

The person who owns the car will get the ticket, but I would think - if that person knew you were the one driving the car - that he or she would give you the ticket. Or, maybe, if that person is nice, he or she will just pay the ticket and hate you for a little while.

No. If you are caugh speeding, they will note down your registration plate and the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).

Yes it could, you a s the owner o f the vehicle are fully responsible for the car and the person who is driving it.

Yes. What would being in or out of your car have to do with the issue? Were you speeding is the issue.

Tickets are issued to people not cars. If you get a ticket while driving someone else's car, it only affects their insurance costs if you are a listed driver on their policy. The ticket is for the driver.

Depends what country you're in.

Most times an officer won't write a ticket for this, but some will. If you are written a ticket for this it will be a "rules of the road" ticket just like speeding and it will go on your drivers record the same. As for the ticket, that all depends on what state you are in and if you get a state or municipal ticket (which may be less).

will my car insurance go up because I received a speeding ticket intermediate in a scool zone?

The fact that a driver gets a speeding ticket has nothing to do with the owner of the car(unless it's the speeders.) The vehicle owner's insurance company will never know about the ticket, but your's will (or your parents) if you're a minor and insured under your parent's insurance. However, if there's a reportable accident involved with the speeding ticket, then the owner of the vehicle,(I'm speaking only for New York State, not sure about others), will be considered responsible for the accident, since the insurance company will now know, but the speeding goes with the driver.

Yes. The ticket will be mailed to the address on record - namely, the rental car agency. The rental car agency will charge your credit card for the amount of the ticket, and occasionally an additional fee. If they cannot charge your card, they can obtain a judgment against you for the amount of the ticket plus legal fees, and will do so.

The police car itself will never give you a speeding ticket. The officer inside the car, however, can, whether or not their vehicle is in motion. They are just as capable of taking speed measurements while movement as they are while stationary.
