Racine County traffic offense lawyerWhen you are pulled over for a traffic stop and the officer believes you were speeding, one of the first things they will likely say is, “Do you know how fast you were going?” Many people do not even realize when they are speeding. It can be extremely easy for the speedometer to inch up and eventually move past the legal speed limit. Most people would simply accept their fate, pay the fine, and move on with their lives. However, paying the fine on a speeding ticket is an admission of guilt and can come with further consequences in some circumstances. If you have received a speeding ticket, you should consult with an attorney to determine how paying the ticket would affect your situation.

Penalties for a Speeding Ticket

Most of the time, when you receive a speeding ticket in Wisconsin, it is only charged as a moving violation. This means that the main penalty for the offense is only a fine. According to Wisconsin law, most speeding tickets carry a possibility of fines between a minimum of $30 and a maximum of $300.

In addition to fines, a speeding ticket could result in points added to your driving record. In Wisconsin, a person with a normal driver’s license can face a license suspension if they accumulate more than 12 points in a 12-month period. The length of the suspension depends on the number of points accumulated. For example, if you were to accumulate 30 points in a 12-month period, you would face a year-long license suspension.
