Insurance Question from East Watertown, MA

Each auto insurance company has their own rules as to the effect of accidents and tickets incurred by a driver. If you received a speeding ticket it will most likely result in a surcharge for the ticket, if you were convicted for the ticket.Some states allow you to attend traffic school for a ticket and it will be removed from your record. If you have that option you should take it and attend the traffic school and keep the ticket off of your record.Each insurance company determines the cost of the ticket on your insurance premium. You can ask your agent or insurance company for the effect on your premium. However, if you can erase this ticket from your record, if you receive another ticket, it will keep your insurance rates down, rather than having a second ticket on your record, since a second ticket would result in additional surcharges for having multiple tickets.
