What type of ticket is the most common for drivers?
Is there a type of violation or ticket that drivers get most often? Does having tickets on your record impact your insurance?
“The most common types of tickets or citations are for running a red light/stop sign and speeding.
Both of these violations happen frequently and are why things like red light cameras and speed traps exist. While these are designed to keep people safe, they’re also a huge source of income for municipalities and local governments.
If you have speeding tickets or a citation for running a red light on your driving record, you will likely pay more for car insurance, as the insurer deems tickets as an indicator of risk. When you speed or engage in risky driving behavior, insurance carriers assume that you have a higher chance of submitting claims.
