Best Answer

If you got a ticket for it, the insurance companies always seem to think it's a speeding violation unless you're cleared in court.

AnswerThe fact that you were going 10 mph OVER the speed limit would constitute speeding. The fact that it was in a school zone usually makes it a little worse, since there are usually extra signs and warnings advertizing what the speed limit is. If you received a ticket for the offense, it will probably be counted by your insurance company.

If you go to traffic school and your speeding ticket is removed from your record will the insurance still go up?

Depends, if the insurance company reviews your drivers transcript before or after the citation has been removed. Also, check with your agent and read your policy. There may be a stipulation in there that states they can charge a surcharge for a extended time period after the violation occured. Or, if you can show that you went to traffic school and the points have been removed perhaps the company will remove the surcharge.

Can you get a lesser auto insurance rate if your child is away at school in a different state?

Possibly. Many insurance companies have a discount if your child is away at school that is 150 or more miles away. This is only if your student does not take the vehicle with them to school. If they do have a vehicle with them at school you need to make sure that the insurance company is notified of the address at school and which vehicle they have at school. Make sure you are honest with the insurance company during this time. If you get the discount be sure that you notify the company if any instance arises where the student wants to take the vehicle to school.
