Pennsylvania Speeding Tickets


As cash start Pennsylvania municipalities look at their budget for the coming year, one of the sources for revenue traditionally, has been driving infractions. One of the most important sources of revenues for these townships is people paying speeding tickets. One of the more questions that we are asked is: How many points am I facing for a speeding ticket?

Exceeding maximum speed Miles over Speed Limit: Amount of Points:
0 to 5 0
6 to 10 2
11 to 15 3
16 to 25 4
26 to 30 5
31 and over Departmental Hearing and Sanctions provided under Section 1538(d) and 5


(Please note that if violations occur in an active work zone, an additional 15 days of suspension is possible)

Another frequent question for my clients is how will a speeding ticket affect my insurance rates? Quite frankly, we are not in position to give you the economic increase that you may face, only, we would strongly suggest that you contact your insurance agent. However, based on our experience, it is quite clear that this counts as a moving violation on many insurance ratings of your policy and is such, will result in a substantial increase.
