Pleading Guilty: Pleading guilty to a speeding ticket can have long-term financial consequences that may cost drivers hundreds in fines, penalties, and insurance increases. A study by a leading insurance company concluded that the national average increase for a speeding conviction is 11% - 15%. In other words, this is the median increase. Some drivers will not receive an increase while others will receive a much larger increase.
