Do speeding tickets cost a lot? Are the fines large?

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.
