Speeding Ticket

Is A Speeding Ticket Really A Big Deal?

Throughout the U.S., speeding is one of the most common traffic violations. Speeding tickets can have a significant impact on your finances. Not only are you liable for the fine, but your insurance rates will also increase. Additionally, your driver’s license may also be suspended if you receive a speeding ticket. While many people would rather “just pay the ticket” and face the consequences, paying the fine is not the only option. You have the right to fight the ticket.

Racine and Kenosha Speeding Ticket Attorney

To mitigate the consequences of receiving a speeding ticket, you need an experienced Wisconsin Speeding Ticket Attorney who is familiar with the laws related to speeding tickets and other traffic violations in Wisconsin. The legal staff at Cafferty & Scheidegger, S.C., will help you resolve the case with the least possible financial impact.

Wisconsin Speed Limits

Chapter 346.57 of the Wisconsin statute lists the vehicle speed restrictions. In addition to fixed and posted speed limits, drivers in Wisconsin at all times must drive at a speed that is reasonable and prudent given the conditions of the road. Additionally, drivers in Wisconsin must slow down under certain circumstances, including (when):

  • Crossing an intersection
  • Crossing a railway grade crossing
  • Approaching and going around a curve
  • Driving on a narrow or winding road
  • Passing school children
  • Construction workers are present
  • Pedestrians are present
  • Special hazards exist
  • Certain weather or road conditions require it

The number of rules related to speeding restriction makes it easy inadvertently to exceed a speed limit. If you do, a police officer may issue you a ticket.

Consequences for Your Driving Record

If you receive a speeding ticket, in some cases, you can simply make it go away by paying the fine listed on the back of the ticket. However, you will have to plead guilty to the offense of speeding. The consequence may be that points will be added to your driving record. These may cause your insurance rates to increase and may even result in your driver’s license being suspended.
