Michael G asked:

I have Progressive car insurance. I got the ticket in Missouri for 14 MPH over the limit (44 MPH in a 30 MPH zone).

If I just pay the fine ($65.00) and take the points (4 points), how much will my car insurance rates go up?

    No real way to tell.You can take driver school so you don’t get points on your license and your rates won’t go up. But you would have had to tell them that when paying the ticket.

    Unfortunately no one can answer you that, not even your company. You will not know until your renewal date. But I can say that you may not see a huge difference if that is the only ticket you have, and you are getting other discounts. Sometimes depending on how long you have had the policy they will not charge you for one ticket, but I can’t speak for Progressive.

    It’ll probably be at least a couple hundred dollars. Your best bet is to go to court if you can and they can decrease it to 2 points and you’ll just pay more up front. It’s the best way to go, methinks, since you’ll be paying more for your car insurance for awhile.
