Q

I got a speeding ticket for 24 miles over the 65 mph limit here in PA Turnpike around Philly. My last violation was in June of 2003 where I had 4 points after 2 points were taken off when I took the class. My questions is how many points is it for 24 miles over the speed limit. Is it 4 or 5?


A

In Pennsylvania point system fact sheet put out by the PennDOT being convicted of a speeding offense of 16 to 25 miles per hour over the speed limit is 4 points and 26 to 30 mph over the posted speed limit is 5 points.

In PA, the Pennsylvania DOT maintains a driving record for every licensed driver in Pennsylvania. Points are added to a driving record when a driver is found guilty of certain driving (moving) violations.

The state of Pennsylvania does allow for point removal for safe driving. Three (3) points are removed from a driving record for every 12 consecutive months a person drives (from the date of the last violation) without a violation which results in points, license suspension or revocation. Once a driving record is reduced to zero and remains at zero points for 12 consecutive months, any further accumulation of points is treated as the first accumulation of points.

For more information regarding your driving record you can contact PennDOT. To see if this speeding citation will affect your insurance rates you can contact your agent and find out about your insurance provider's rating system. If your rates do rise do to this traffic ticket you can get a low cost car insurance quote here with us.
