Ticket Fines and Penalties
This topic contains state-specific information; to view it, please select the state you are interested in below.
So much of why we wince when getting pulled over is due to the traffic ticket fines and penalties that go along with a citation. Because these can greatly affect your driving privileges and pocketbook, take the time to learn more on traffic violation fines and penalties in your state.
Most often the consequences for specific violations are consistent throughout a state. For example, you’ll most likely get the same number of points for running a red light in one county as you would in another part of the state. Yet traffic ticket fines can vary depending on the court and the final ruling. Plus, depending on the type of license you hold (regular, CDL, learner’s permit, etc.), the state could enlist even stricter consequences. Get the facts on your state’s fines, points system, license suspension and more.Choose a State:
