Breakdown of Speeding Tickets in Texas

Carrollton Auto InsuranceWhether you are in a rush for an important meeting or someone you love is in need of your immediate attention, we are all caught speeding at one point or another. While speeding is one of the most dangerous driving habits, it can also be costly for both your pocket and your safety. In Texas, the amount you pay for your speeding violation will depend on the municipality where you received your ticket. Some tickets have information regarding the fine you will be required to pay on them, whereas others require you to attend or contact the court to determine your fine.

Each municipality uses a scale when determining how much to fine each violator. The scale is dependent upon how fast the violator was traveling and where it occurred.

Houston

$165 fine when you drive 1-5 miles per hour over the limit

$180 fine when you drive 6-9 miles per hour over the limit

$195 fine when you drive 10-14 miles per hour over the limit

$240 fine when you drive 15-19 miles per hour over the limit

$265 fine when you drive 20-29 miles per hour over the limit

$300 fine when you drive 30 miles per hour or more over the limit
