Penalties for speeding vary based on the infraction, but all include fines and can lead increased insurance costs, points of your driving record and the possible suspension of your license. While some violations may be resolved by paying a fine an appearing in court, many are not that simple. In fact, paying your assigned fine is an automatic admission of guilt and can have immediate impacts on insurance premiums.
