What is the points system for speeding in Pennsylvania?

Speeding in Pennsylvania is a serious traffic violation, even if it seems everyone gets a speeding ticket at some point throughout the course of their lifetime. When you get a speeding ticket, you may not only have to pay the ticket, but you may also face other financial hardships as a result of the traffic ticket. You may be subject to a number of fines depending on the circumstances surrounding your traffic violation. Upon getting a traffic ticket, you will also incur points on your driver’s license. The faster you were speeding over the speed limit, the more points you will receive. When you get points added to your license, you will likely face increased insurance premiums.

If you were found to be going between 6 and 10 miles per hour over the speed limit, you will have 2 points added to your license. 11 and 15 miles per hour over the speed limit will result in 3 points. Driving between 16 and 25 miles per hour over the speed limit will result in 4 points added to your license. A driver will get 5 points added to their license for driving 26 miles per hour or more over the speed limit.

If you want to avoid getting points added to your driver’s license, it is important that you contact an experienced traffic violations attorney who can fight to lessen your penalties and save you from fines and increased insurance premiums.
