Study: SPEEDING FINE COMPARISON FOR CONNECTICUT, NEW YORK, PENNSYLVANIA, AND VIRGINIA


This one is an oldie but a goodie with some useful comparison charts. Keep in mind fines quoted are from 2008 and have increased in many cases since. Also, there will be no reference to new laws like the 1144a "Move Over" law (FLD TO MOVE TO OPEN LANE TO EMERG VEHICLE), a 3 point violation, as well as cell phone (OP MOBILE PHONE), and electronic device. Otherwise, it is a very interesting look into how fines for traffic violations like speeding compare across these neighboring states as well as what penalties are assessed.

One interesting point, and something that most people don't realize, is that speeding even 11mph over the posted speed limit is punishable by 15 days in prison! Maybe one good reason to hire a lawyer.
