10 Most Expensive Traffic Tickets Based on Insurance Rates
There's nothing worse than getting a ticket, am I right?
Getting your driver's license has to be one of the greatest days in any teen's life. Even in the 21st century when everything can be delivered to you or can be found on your phone, there's still a level of freedom when that card is in your wallet.
I still remember getting mine and that first drive by myself.
Of course, I mainly just drove to and from school, practice, games, and youth group. And my curfew was when the sun went down. Which sounds great in the summer, but it's awful in the winter. It's probably why I tried out for winter sports because at least I could be out if I had practice.
Driving comes with a lot of responsibility.
You're literally putting yourself in something that can injure or kill you or your fellow drivers. That's a big deal. We rely on each other to be decent on the road and look out for one another.
That doesn't always happen though.
Which is why there are laws. They keep us, for the most part, in line. After all, if being a good driver isn't enough to motivate you, then avoiding spending a bunch of money on tickets certainly will.
Yep, those things can cost you money and your insurance money, which ultimately will cost you more money in the long run.
Some traffic violations can be annoying small chunks of change, but then there are some that will set you back a bit. And by a bit, I mean a lot. No to mention what they can do to your insurance rates.
Recently, insurance company The Zebra compiled a list of the most expensive traffic violations and the toll they take on your rates. Let's just say that it hurts to have to pay a ticket, but then you will continue to pay for it in the long run.
Here they are from least expensive to most expensive.
