Getting a traffic ticket is a foolproof way to dampen your day. The costs associated with fines and damage to your driving record are consequences no one wants to deal with. Most of us believe that auto insurance premiums will automatically get hiked up when the infraction hits our driving record. Studies have shown, however, that premiums which go up after a traffic ticket are actually in the minority. So, relax, drive safely, and follow the rules of the road.
