Speeding is a sure sign that you WILL have an accident soon, and the insurance company is well with-in their rights to protect themselves against bad drivers. They do this in a number of ways. One is to raise your insurance costs, to make you more aware of your driving mistakes. Another way is to cut you off, based on your driving convictions.

Speeding tickets affect your insurance rates for at least 3 years in most states.

No tickets do not expire. They can be collected on any time after they are issued. Most insurance companies will not count them after a period of time. And the points are removed from the driving record eventually, the length varies by state.

Parking tickets do not affect your insurance rates, only moving violations or other tickets that take points off your license.

If you get your first speeding ticket with no points does your insurance go up?

Normally in all states they stay on your record forever. Some states do purge after a certain length of time. For drivers license points and insurance points it is usually three years but some insurance companies are now going back five years. Your insurance points are normally what will cost you and different companies assess points according to their own schedule.

That depends, who you are currenly insured with and what KIND of speeding tickets they are. A typical speeding ticket is 2 pts, however an excessive speeding ticket is 5 points. It also depends what tier you are currently in with your current agency. I currently pay 109.23, if I added 4 points it goes to 127.88 a month, but if I add 10 points (two excessive speeding tickets), it goes to 193.18. I am in the second highest tier in my company.

both points and tickets are considered in the underwriting process for rate determination by insurers. Doubt you could find one that doesn't.

Zero. South Dakota does not add points for speeding or parking tickets.

Helping to answer "How do speeding tickets affect your car insurance?" Depending on the insurance carrier that you have, i.e. Geico, Progressive, State Farm, Allstate, your premium will increase. Points are assesed when a speeding violation is incurred. Each insurance company has a chart that will determin how much of a percentage your premium per violation. Each state is different and some will allow for points to be removed by taking a driving course. However, if the violation is still on your MVR, it may not matter that there are not any points assessed because you will still be charged an increase based on your carrier's point system. For example: You incur a speeding ticket that asseses 2 points on your MVR. You take a course to remove the points, but it is still listed on your MVR as a violation. You may still be charged an increase in premium depending on your insurance carrier. I recommend you this site where you can compare quotes from different companies:

"What information do insurance companies get about a ticket and what do they do with it?" When you apply for auto insurance the company looks at a number of items in determining how much to charge you for the insurance. This charge is your insurance premium. A number of factors are used and not all companies will use the same rating system and that is why you always need to get at least three quotes on your auto insurance. One of the factors and probably the most important is your Motor Vehicle Report or MVR. This is kept by the DMV in your home state and lists all of the accidents and traffic tickets that you have received subject to state law. Speeding tickets can be kept off your record by a number of ways including traffic school, a deferment and of course beating the ticket in court. Usually the company only checks the last three years and assigns insurance points depending on the number of accidents and tickets. The more points the more your insurance will cost. If you record is really bad the company may decline to even quote or your current carrier may even cancel. For example some of the low cost companies will drop coverage if you receive a reckless driving citation. For a further discussion see the article "The True Cost of a Speeding Ticket".

Yes. Both Florida and Georgia can share information about speeding tickets and other tickets. This is to help the states communicate and also decide when to add points to licenses and on which state's driving records.

There are lots of insurance companies who will insure a person with a DWI charge on their record. A DWI is the same number of points as one at fault accident or three minor speeding tickets. It counts as 3 points with most companies. Now not all insurance companies will take you with a DWI charge but most companies will and the increase is not as much as you think it will be. I suggest that you go to a couple of independent insurance agencies in your area and see who like the best. Independent agents represent several different insurance companies who do well in your area and they can shop around for you and give you the best rate. Best of all, when your record cleans up they can move you to a preferred insurance company with even better rates.

Assigned Risk PointsNo they are totally different. Insurance Companies assign points to a driver based on a number of criteria, Such as Age, Driver experience, Personal Credit, The type of Vehicle, Zip Code and place of residence, Marital Status, certain but not all citations chargeable on your driving history. The Insurance companies risk system is designed to access the likelihood of an accident or other loss.This is a common misconception. They are totally separate but they are directly related.Driver's License points, not all states have a point system, are used by the Department of Motor Vehicles to suspend the license of habitual traffic offenders. The laws vary widely from state to state especially for tickets received outside of your home state.Insurance points are assigned by your individual insurance carrier and are used to determine the cost of your auto insurance. The more traffic tickets you have received, the more insurance points and the higher your premiums. Again this varies widely among the various companies. It is always a good idea to comparison shop rates.Speeding Ticket Central
