Speeding Ticket Penalties Springfield
When people think of speeding tickets, they typically consider a fine and points as the only penalty they face. Unfortunately, many cities have their own code or local laws. These local laws or ordinances often make seemingly minor speeding tickets a much more serious offense.
For example, a speeding ticket under the Ohio Revised Code is typically a minor misdemeanor. This means that a conviction results in a fine and (often) points on your driving record. Under many local codes, the penalties for the same offense are considered as a much higher degree misdemeanor. These speeding tickets written as higher degree misdemeanors actually expose the you to higher fines and even a potential jail sentence!
Beware of Increased Speeding Ticket Penalties
A typical speeding ticket under state law is a minor misdemeanor. A state code minor misdemeanor has a maximum fine of $150 and no possibility of jail. The local codes that label the same speeding offense as a higher misdemeanor carry more severe penalties, including the possibility of jail. For Example:
Third Degree Misdemeanor
Fine up to $500 and a jail sentence up to 60 days.
