On a daily basis, everyone sees at least one driver that drives at lightning speed, running yellow lights and darting around cars. You might even be that person on certain days. But does speeding up when you see a yellow light or quickly weaving in and out of traffic actually save you time and money? No, in fact, it probably costs you.
Some people may be willing to pay the price of their traffic violation ticket, but they don’t realize that their insurance carrier tracks the accumulation of tickets. In the event of an accident, injuries and damages are more extensive the faster you drive. The insurance company notes this and finds you at a higher risk. In other words, the more tickets you have, the higher you will pay for insurance.
The severity and frequency of these violations calculates the likelihood that you will be involved in an accident. If you gather multiple traffic violations your insurance rates will change after they review your Motor Vehicle Report.
The solution to avoiding this is simple – slow down. Driving the speed limit, putting away distractions such as cell phones and being alert to other drivers not only saves you the cost of a ticket and increased insurance, but it could save your life.
