No one wants to see a police officer behind them and get a traffic ticket in South Dakota, but it happens to many at one time or another. In South Dakota individual counties are able to determine their traffic ticket fines which means that ticket prices vary from county to county. They also vary depending on your driving record and how severe the traffic offense was that you committed. In addition to the traffic ticket fines, most counties assess additional court or administration fees and many times insurance rates increase when the ticket is reported on your South Dakota driving record. Normally, you can lower some of these costs by taking South Dakota online traffic school.
