Speeding Violations

What is a Speeding Violation?

When operating a road vehicle, drivers must adhere to posted speed limits at all times. When a person drives over the speed limit, he or she is speeding. Speeding means that the driver is driving at excessive and/or illegal speeds. The speed limit is set by law in most states. Typically, the highway speed limit is 65 miles per hour in the west half of the United States, and 55 miles per hour in the eastern half. The limit varies on non-highway roads and in residential or commercial areas. Even when the speed limit is not posted, there are statutory limits in place that drivers must still adhere to. Speeding in areas where there are no speed limit signs is still against the law.

Speeding is a common traffic violation that can carry heavy consequences. If a law enforcement officer pulls you over for a speeding violation, or if you are caught via radar or a camera, you will be fined and expected to pay the appropriate dues. You may also be required to attend a court hearing, especially if you wish to challenge the citation. Depending on the speed limit, the speed you were driving, the conditions surrounding the area you were speeding in, and prior traffic convictions, you could face more than just a fine. A speeding violation ticket can increase your insurance rates, lead to points on your driving record, and may cause your license to be suspended or revoked.
