What steps should you take after getting a speeding ticket?

Even the most careful of drivers may find themselves on the receiving end of a speeding ticket. Rather than feeling ashamed, it makes more sense to understand what to do next.

The Ascent explains options for responding to a speeding ticket. Individuals deserve to know what to do to protect their rights and insurance rates.

Pay more attention

Nothing serves as a wake-up call to drive more carefully like a speeding ticket. Drivers cannot hide their speeding tickets from their coverage providers when the time comes to renew their policies, but they can commit to driver safer and avoiding future tickets and future insurance rate hikes.

Think about fighting the ticket

Those who receive speeding tickets have more options than paying the citation. Those who feel the officer gave the ticket unfairly may contest it in court. One reason to at least try to fight back against a speeding ticket is to protect one’s current insurance rates.

Secure a different insurance provider

If fighting against a ticket proves unsuccessful, parties may want to go ahead and start looking for a new insurance provider rather than wait to see if their current provider drops them when the time comes to renew their policy. Not all coverage providers penalize drivers with speeding tickets with severe rate increases. Securing a new provider that offers the same policy for a reduced penalty rate when compared with a current provider could save drivers money.

A single speeding ticket could send substantial ripples through a person’s financial life. Knowing options available to them may help drivers protect their financial health and peace of mind.
