Defending Your Rights | You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Speeding tickets affect millions of people: Learn more

A speeding ticket can be frustrating, but for the most part, people are so familiar with them that they don't seem to be a big deal. The truth is that these tickets can have a significant impact on you, and you still have a right to defend yourself against them.

There are lots of interesting facts about the history of speeding tickets that you should know. For example, did you know that the first speeding ticket was given in Manhattan in 1899? The violation led to the speeder being jailed.

Speeding tickets are common in today's society

Today, it's unlikely that you'd be jailed for a speeding offense, but you are more likely to get one. Recent statistics have shown that around 41 million speeding tickets are issued every year. That breaks down into around 112,328 tickets per day at an average cost of around $150 per ticket.

Each minute, around 78 people are stopped for speeding in the USA. That works out to billions of dollars in revenue once all is said and done, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Should you fight a speeding ticket?

If you find yourself facing a speeding ticket, don't think that the only option is to pay it outright. You have the opportunity to plead not guilty and to fight the charges so that you can do your best to avoid the penalties that come with it. Our site has more on how your attorney can help you fight to avoid a conviction or seek lower penalties with any speeding ticket that you face.
