What are the Additional Costs for Moving Violations?
Besides just raising your insurance rates, you're also going to be paying additional fees. Some are obvious, such as traffic tickets. Others you may not have considered. Even though most traffic tickets are handled fairly quickly and easily, a traffic infraction can have a negative effect on a person's driving privileges. Sometimes punitive "points" are put on the license of the driver. As a driver accumulates points, he or she may be required to attend defensive driving lessons, re-take his or her driving test, pay additional taxes, or even surrender the license altogether. And of course, the classes themselves cost money, too. All of these costs are going to add up and really hit you in the wallet.
