What will my insurance rate be after a ticket?

I currently pay $170 a month for insurance. I recently got a ticket for running a stop sign. What will my insurance rate be now that I have a ticket?

Answer
“Your car insurance rate is partially determined by your driving record. If you have a ticket or accident on your driving record, you could pay more for your insurance. Some carriers don’t rate tickets and accidents as negatively as others, so the impact from running a stop sign isn’t the same for all insurers.
If you are currently in the middle of your policy term, you won’t see a rate increase until your policy renewal. If your rate does increase, you may want to try Jerry. As an insurance broker, Jerry compares the rates of dozens of insurers to find you the best rate possible.”
