You can appeal a ticket surcharge that is imposed by your insurance company with your state insurance department but you will lose if you try to blame the police officer. Police officers have no responsibility to inform you of what might happen to your insurance if you get a ticket. In fact they don't care what happens to your insurance rates, if you violated a traffic law you should expect to get a ticket.

When getting a ticket, most states offer you a chance to go to court and fight the ticket so you do not get the points on your license. The points on your license is what actually raises your insurance rate. The insurance rate will go up depending on the amount of points given because of the ticket.

Sometimes it is beneficial in keeping insurance rates from going through the roof also.

Fines and penalties are determined by laws of the municipality where the incident occurred.

How do you fight a speeding ticket?

Show up to court at the location specified on the summons then plead "not guilty" and explain why you think you should not have been given the ticket. One way to avoid receiving a speeding ticket is to be cooperative with the officer. You could also get a plea bargain agreement to get a reduced charge prior to seeing the judge. If you need to argue your case (e.g. "fight") is to provide information that you have had no prior tickets or any points on your driving record, but this would depend on the state. And, one way that means a quick trip is to own up if you are guilty and pay the fine--no judge, no court date... just embarrassment and possibly a raise in your insurance and whatever points on your license.

What is the cost of a ticket for going 96 MPH in a 65 MPH zone?

Non legal answer. A lot! Usually varies from state to state. In most states anything 20 or over is a felony. Can range in price from $300 to $1000 and a loss on license. I just recently had a speaking ticket for doing 96 in a 65 in NYS. If you fight the ticket in court, they will make a deal with you depending on your driving record. 130 and 2 points or 250 and no points for clean records. If you have numerous tickets then you should worry about getting your license taking away.
