Hidden costs come with a speeding ticket

When most people think about the consequences of a speeding ticket, they think of the fine that may be associated with the ticket. However, speeding tickets come with hidden costs as well.

In Virginia, a speeding ticket fine could be $6, $7 or $8 for each mile-per-hour you were driving over the speed limit. If you choose to pay the fine associated with your ticket, you will be charged a processing fee, which can be around $60, but may vary based on where in the state you were caught speeding. If you use a credit or debit card to pay your fine, you may be subject to a 4 percent convenience fee.

Driving with a suspended license: consequences?

If law enforcement suspends or revokes your license, it can be a pain to try and find alternate transportation to work, the grocery store or even a friend’s house. Because of this, you may find yourself tempted to continue driving without a license.

Even though driving with a suspended license is illegal, some choose to do it. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that around 30 percent of drivers with a suspended license commit a moving violation during the time of suspension. What are the consequences for this offense?
