What to do if you’re pulled over for speeding

Speeding is a common violation of the law that can lead to quite a bit of trouble. In addition to a fine, it can also impact your insurance premium. And if you have a poor driving record, it could even result in a license suspension.

Here are the steps you should take if you're pulled over for speeding:

  • Don't wait to move to safety: Acknowledge the officer by putting on your hazard lights, and then slowly move to a safe place, such as a parking lot or the shoulder of the road.
  • Stay in your car: Stay where you are, with your hands on the wheel, until the officer reaches your window. At that point, follow their directions.
  • Don't admit to anything: When the officer asks if you know why you were pulled over, don't say anything that could come across as an admission of guilt.
  • Stay calm: Even if you feel that you shouldn't have received a ticket, stay calm throughout the experience. Letting your emotions get the best of you will only lead to additional complications.

Before you pay your speeding ticket and put it behind you, think twice about the impact it'll have on your life.

It's often best to challenge your ticket in traffic court, as doing so can help you avoid the consequences. Even if you still have to pay the citation in full, you may be able to keep it off of your driving record.

Remember, just because you're pulled over for speeding doesn't mean you don't have legal rights. Do your part in protecting them.
