How do I calculate my speeding ticket?
The initial 10MPH over the speed limit is assessed a $50 fine. In other words, there is a flat fee for the first 10MPH. Each MPH above the initial 10MPH is then calculated at $10 per MPH thereafter. In addition to the fines established relative to the speed travelled, there is a $50 assessment applied to the fine schedule which goes to a Head Injury Fund established by the state.
Example: 46MPH in a 30MPH zone = 16MPH over the speed limit
Fine = $50 Head Injury Fund assessment + $50 (first 10MPH over the speed limit) + $60 (next 6MPH) = $160
