Traffic Fines

Traffic tickets range from about $100 for minor infractions to thousands of dollars for more serious violations. The most common traffic tickets for speeding, vary depending on how fast you were allegedly going over the posted speed limit.

If you were allegedly going 15 miles or less over the speed limit, you would receive a base fine of $238. If you were traveling 16-25 miles over the speed limit, your base fine would increase to $367. If you were believed to have been traveling 26 mph or more over the posted speed limit, your base fine would be $490.
