Speeding tickets will be taken into consideration when an insurance company is determining your rates. The surcharge applied for having a speeding ticket can depend on your driving history, along with the amount over the speed limit you were ticketed for.
For example, being ticketed for driving at higher speeds will have a greater impact than if you were traveling only six to 10 miles per hour over the limit.

Why is my uninsured motorist coverage so high in Maine?
