The best way to avoid paying surcharges for traffic violations is to pay more money than what you owe on the fine, but not alot more - maybe 50 cents more. The logic is that the municipality or state that issued the ticket is required to "finalize all proceedings" before they notify your insurance company who would then levy the surcharge. The city or state would be required to reimburse you the extra amount that you paid before they could finalize. If they owe you a large sum of money, they would want to clear that from their books. If they owe you 50 cents, your file will sit at the bottom of an endless list that will never be processed! For 50 cents, you save yourself hundreds of dollars in unwanted surcharges.

There is not going to be a ticket that is issued for just a no proof of insurance. You will have to show your proof of insurance but the ticket cost will be for something else. If you cannot show your proof of insurance, you will have to go to court.

The increase in insurance for any ticket is dependent upon the insurance company and the driver. Some insurance policies will not go up in the event of one ticket.

== == In MI your insurance goes up on each and every ticket you get. Not sure about Kansas, but probably the same.

I know when I got a ticket, I went to the courthouse and met with one of the people there and told them to "stay" the ticket. Which meant that if I didn't get another ticket within a year of that ticket, it would not go on my insurance. However, if you got another ticket, then both would go on your record. I have also heard that if the ticket is less than 10 mph over the limit, then it automatically doesn't go on your insurance. However, I think this might be a myth, because when I went to "stay" my ticket I was going 37 in a 30, and the worker never said anything about it not going on my insurance. It may also have something to do with select counties too.

You're insurance should not go up if this is your first time and as long as you pay the ticket. But you can contact your insurance company and find that out with them

You are going to have to pay all cost out of pocket. Also you may be given a severe ticket for driving without insurance.

They may find out through the car insurance company, The car insurance is higher when the speed if over 5 miles above the posted speed. It's always better to tell the truth.

The word discrepancy can be used as follows You get a ticket for speeding. You were going 65 in 55 but the ticket says you were going 65 in a 46 When you go to court you tell the Judge "Your honor there is a discrepancy between what my ticket says and the actual speed limit."

Police departments do not report tickets to insurance companies. That's true. But they DO report them to the DMV and the insurance companies have access to these records. If you don't believe me, just ask your agent when you got your last ticket.

138 but its going up. try this site where you can compare quotes from different companies: insureinfo.us

There are no points that go on insurance for getting a ticket at five miles per hour over the speed limit. Usually, you will not even get a ticket for going only five over the limit.รŠ

The fee assessed to the ticket will be assigned by the judge in traffic court. There's no set fee for a ticket that requires a court appearance. And depending on the outcome of the hearing, your insurance rates may be adjusted. Best advice? Slow down. Keep yourself and others safe.

Photo tickets are considered a moving violation. Moving violations will increase your auto insurance premiums if you are found guilty. When you pay the fine associated with your photo ticket, you are admitting guilt. If you go to court and fight the ticket, you can request traffic school. Going to traffic school or fighting the ticket are the only two ways to prevent an increase in your insurance rates.

You will need to contact your agent, or the policy services dept for your company to get this answer.

My ticket , to pay it before the court date is $ 166.00. The officer said I did not have to appear. I was wondering what kind of points will I get. i have been driving for45 years and this is my third ticket. I was wondering about points and insurance rates going up I Live in North Carolina

The actual price for the car insurance will be based on what you will get added to the insurance. The basic insurance plan is recommended by law, I would recommend getting that insurance plan if you are going to be on a budget during your move to New Jersey.

The speeding ticket itself is a factor as well as the amount of speed you were going. Basically, if you get a ticket for speeding, your rates will go up. In some states, they can't up your insurance if you take a traffic course in driver safety through the state, providing you take the course in response to the ticket. Nor can they increase your rates if you take the ticket to court and win your case.

You can contest a parking ticket by going to civil court on the date that it is due and the date written on the ticket. You can explain your reasons for contesting it to the judge and they will make a decision on the spot.

Every insurance company sets their own rates, so there really is not a specific answer to this question. There can be other factors to consider as well, such as what the actual speed limit was.I would expect a significant increase the next time your insurance company re-rates your policy.Be aware, your DMV's points system is used to determine whether or not your license should be suspended and, generally speaking, has nothing at all to do with your insurance premiums.

Whether it goes up or not usually depends on your insurance provider and associated coverage. Your best option is to call and ask them. They're going to find out anyway.

i just got this same ticket the other day. i am 18 and need to know how this will affect my insurance. i was going 81 in a 65 but all the traffic around me was going the EXACT same speed, if not faster. i still don't understand how i got the ticket, but i did so i have to deal with it. how much will my insurance increase? would it be worth it to take it to court or to just pay the ticket and take traffic school? could i be denied traffic school because i was 16 over?
