What Happens if I Receive…

If you have recently received a speeding ticket in Maryland, there is a very good chance you are now concerned about the ramifications for such a charge. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Maryland traffic defense attorney to learn more about the consequences of a speeding ticket in Maryland and how our firm can help you fight them. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the penalties for a speeding ticket in Maryland?

  • Exceeding the speed limit by 1-9 miles per hour: This is an $80 fine and one point on your license. 
  • Exceeding the speed limit by 10-19 miles per hour: This is a $90 fine and two points on your license.
  • Exceeding the speed limit by 20-29 miles per hour: This is a $160 fine and two points on your license. 
  • Exceeding the speed limit of 65-75 miles per hour by 10-19 miles per hour: This is a $160 fine and two points on your license.
  • Exceeding the speed limit of 65-75 miles per hour by 20-29 miles per hour: This is a $290 fine and five points on your license.
  • Exceeding the speed limit by 30-39 miles per hour: This is a $290 fine and five points on your license.
  • Exceeding the speed limit by more than 40 miles per hour: This is a $530 fine and five points on your license.

Unfortunately, the ramifications of receiving a speeding ticket in Maryland extend far beyond a fine. When you receive points on your license, you can expect your insurance premiums to rise, which means that you essentially will be indirectly paying for your ticket for months, or even years, to come. Furthermore, if this is not your first speeding ticket and you have already accumulated several points on your license, there is a good chance that this speeding ticket may warrant a license suspension, which, rather obviously, can affect various facets of your life, including your ability to commute to your place of employment.
