South Carolina speeding ticket fines are among the lowest in the country, but unfortunately that doesn’t mean that your SC speeding ticket won’t cost a lot. On top of your speeding ticket fine, you will also have to pay court fees and increased insurane premiums. In fact, according to national averages, your car insurance rates increase by 20% for one ticket, 35% for two tickets, and over 50% for three tickets or more. Since points stay on your record for up to five years, that cost can become quite substantial, over $1200 for just one ticket over the course of five years. You can lower some of these costs by taking South Carolina online traffic school.
