If you are pulled over and issued a citation, you have 10 days to decide how you want to deal with it. These options include either appearing in court to fight the charge, in which you must contact the court system to let them know that you would like to do this, or simply pay the fine, which essentially means that you agree that you were guilty.
If you decide to fight the ticket in court, you then may be granted dismissal of the ticket if you enroll in a defensive driving safety class. However, this does not apply to speeding tickets above certain speeds.
In Texas, points are applied to your driving record for each offense you are convicted of. If your driving record incurs a certain amount of points within a set time period, you may be liable for license suspension or revocation.
The first step is to decide how you’re going to plea – guilty, no contest, or not guilty. Either of the first two requires that you pay the fines associated with your ticket. Pleading not guilty implies that you are going to fight your ticket in court.
Speeding tickets vary from case to case based on how many miles per hour you were going over the posted limit. However, typically fines range from $165 to $300+.
Texas uses criteria when assigning points because of a traffic ticket. Whether your moving violation occurred in Texas or outside of Texas, you may receive two points if convicted. However, if your moving violation resulted in a crash, you could receive 3 points.
If convicted, your insurance rates will most likely go up. The increase is based on the severity of your crime and can go down over time if you maintain a safe driving record.
