Although a traffic ticket may seem like a fairly minor hassle, the consequences of receiving one can be quite serious. If you are pulled over by a law enforcement officer and issued a ticket for aggravated speeding (speeding 26 mph or more over the limit), your potential consequences will include jail time, probation, a permanent criminal record, and hefty fines. Speeding 26-34 mph over the limit is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail. And if you are stopped for moving at 35 mph or more over the speed limit, you will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to 364 days in jail.

- Urban Areas – 30 mph
- Alleys – 15 mph
- School Zones – 20 mph
- Interstate tollways, freeways, some highways – 65 mph
