Most people consider speeding ticket fines to be very expensive. Although the costs differ from state to state and from ticket to ticket, they can easily cost in excess of $250 for just the fine itself. The fines also normally increase for more serious speeding tickets (i.e. driving 20+ mph over the limit) and also for people who have multiple tickets on their records. You also have to pay court and processing fines when you get a ticket which will increase the fine. Finally, since your insurance rates will increase when you get a speeding ticket, sometimes for as long as 6 years, you end up paying for that mistake for years to come.
