Greenville Speeding Ticket Attorney
North Carolina Traffic Lawyer
Penalties for speeding tickets will vary depending upon the speed limit in the area versus how fast you were driving or were accused of driving. While it may seem easy to simply pay a speeding ticket when you were found driving less than 10 miles per hour above the posted speed limit (as this does not immediately result in a point on your record), if coupled with a prior moving violation, this may count as a point on your insurance and may increase your car insurance premium by 25%.
Greenville traffic attorney Timothy E. Burch is experienced in dealing with speeding tickets. In most cases he is effective in making sure his clients receive no insurance points, so they do not receive an increase in their insurance payment. License suspension may occur in certain excessive speeding situations, such as a driver going over 20 mph above the posted speed limit. Attorney Burch is familiar with all the different situations and penalties associated with speeding tickets, as well as their successful defenses. His skill and experience can make all the difference in your moving violation.
Speeding Ticket Penalties in North Carolina
There are various points which may be assigned to your insurance and result in increased insurance rates. This will depend upon the speed limit and how fast you were driving:
- Driving 11 or more miles per hour above a posted speed limit of 55 mph: 2 points (45% increase in insurance premium)
- Driving over 75 mph where the posted speed limit is less than 70 mph: 4 points (90% increase)
- Driving over 80 mph in a zone where the posted speed limit is 70 mph or more: 4 points (90% increase)
- Note: in addition, these points accumulate on your record and do not get erased for a period of 3 years. Getting additional speeding tickets will add to the points that you already have.
