Whether you’re in a hurry or just a little impatient, everyone winds up speeding eventually. For others, speeding is a more chronic problem which increases your risk for serious injury. In 2016, speeding was the second-leading cause of death in fatal motor vehicle crashes. There were roughly 400 more fatalities because of unbelted drivers, but it’s possible that some of those drivers could have also been speeding.
Speeding is a common and costly traffic violation. Between paying the fine associated with the violation and any increase in your insurance premium, speeding is expensive. The state of Kansas can also suspend your driver’s license for too many traffic violations, which means that you must also pay any reinstatement fees and complete any court-ordered requirements before having your license reinstated.
