What are the Effects for Speeding?
Five years ago when I got my first job as a legal resident, I planned to leave home 1 hour early to get on time on my first day. While I was driving on 275 highway I saw a traffic sign that said the exit I had to take was closed due to an accident, so I proceed to take the previous exit and suddenly noticed another car accident was blocking my way, which forced me to make a right turn to look for another exit that would take me to my final destination. At that moment I’ve been driving for 45 minutes and with only 15 minutes remaining to get to my new job, which should have taken me 30 minutes, instinctively I begun driving faster, yet only 40MPH in a 30MPH speed limit street. Unfortunately an undercover police made me stop and gave me a ticket. He didn’t care that I have had my Driver’s License since 1994 without any tickets or that I was late for my new job. As we can see in this situation, the effects of speeding to mention two is to get a ticket and to be involved in a car crash.
As a result of speeding when you get a traffic ticket it also affects your pocket as it can be very expensive to pay off a ticket as well as the increments in your insurance. There is no way to hide your fault to your insurance company because they have the police reports and then they can raise the amount you were paying accordingly. You can choose to pay the ticket or go to court. Even though, in both cases you have to pay the ticket. If you pay it you also have to take classes and pass an exam at the Traffic School, which helps you avoid the points on your Driver’s License and it might not affect your driving record. When you choose to go to court you have to pay for court expenses even if you win the case for any reason; if you don’t win the case you might have an additional fee plus the cost of the ticket.
Furthermore, when you are speeding you can get involved in a car accident. You can be driving the best you can, following all the traffic...
