Does a speeding ticket affect insurance rates?
Yes, a speeding ticket will affect your insurance rate. The good news is each insurance company has different rates. It depends on how many speeding tickets you have had, or if this is the first one. If you have a speeding ticket you may want to look into traffic school to wipe it off your record and keep your rates unaffected.
Speeding tickets and other accidents and violations will affect your auto insurance rates no matter what state you are in. The speed at which you were speeding can also affect your rates. One minor ticket will make very little difference in your insurance rate. Some companies do not increase your rate for just one minor violation in a three year period. It depends on the insurance company and their regulations.
