Speeding laws are designed to protect the driver and others from potential accidents. When you get a speeding ticket, it becomes a public record that eventually will be removed over time.
Most moving violations, like speeding tickets, stay on a driver's record for three to five years.
Speeding tickets could affect how much you pay in car insurance. The insurance may stay relatively high until the three to five years has elapsed.
Some states will expunge the ticket from your record if you pay a fine and take lessons from an approved driving school.
Your license can be suspended if you do not pay the speeding ticket on time.
Every speeding ticket will add points to your personal driving record. If you exceed the number of allowable points, you will not only lose your license but could lose out on certain job opportunities.
