Have you ever wondered if the type of car you drive might increase or decrease your chances of getting a speeding ticket? Does having a red car make it more likely that the police will think you’re going faster than you really are?
We looked at a recent study to find out those answers and more. There are quite a few surprises, including which states have the most expensive tickets and which ones let you off easy.
Did you know that the average cost of a speeding ticket is $152? That’s equal to the average weekly grocery bill for a family of four. If you get the max ticket of $1,350 in Virginia, that will set you back more than 2 months worth of food. It’s no surprise, then, that $6,232,000,000 gets paid each year due to speeding tickets. That number is only going up.
