Texas Speeding Laws & Penalties

Speeding refers to the act of operating a vehicle at a speed exceeding the posted speed limit or driving too fast for the prevailing or changing road conditions, such as heavy traffic, adverse weather, or road construction. The speed limits for urban or residential areas are around 15 to 35 miles per hour (mph), while most Texas highways and non-urban roads have posted limits ranging from 60 to 70 mph.

In Texas, the fines for speeding tickets are generally determined by the local municipality or county where the offense occurred. This base fine serves as a starting point and can vary depending on the severity of the offense, such as the degree of speeding over the limit. Therefore, the higher the speed, the higher the fine.

Keep in mind, speeding could result in being charged with reckless driving. Unlike a speeding ticket, a reckless driving offense is a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum 30-day jail term and a fine of up to $200.

Know Your Options After Receiving a Traffic Ticket

We represent anyone using Texas roadways. Many of our clients have received multiple traffic tickets for various offenses and we know how easy it is to let traffic violation to stack up against you. Letting your traffic violations add up may lead to a warrant or a hold on your license.

Depending on the individual circumstances, there are a couple of options available after receiving a traffic citation:

  • Participate in defensive driving programs
  • Contest the traffic ticket

If you’ve received a traffic ticket in Texas, defensive driving school will not only dismiss the ticket but it will also keep your driving record clean and prevent any increase in car insurance rates.

How Do I Know if I Qualify for Driving School?

In order to be eligible for driving school, motorists must meet the following requirements:

  • You haven’t taken a defensive driving course in Texas within the 12 months prior to receiving your ticket
  • You must have a valid Texas driver’s license
  • You were not driving a commercial vehicle at the time you received your ticket
  • Your ticket was not issued for speeding at 25 MPH or more over the posted speed limit
  • Your ticket was not issued for a violation within a construction zone

If you are not eligible to complete the defensive driving course, you have the option to contest the ticket. Although contesting a traffic ticket is a big time commitment, it gives you a chance of beating the ticket.

In order to dispute a traffic citation, you are required to appear in traffic court at least one time. In Texas, traffic violations are handled by individual local traffic courts. As an Abilene local, our attorney is known by the judges and prosecutors throughout the region for his legal skills and professional representation.

  • "Refreshing to find an attorney who isn't just in it for the money"

    I recently received a traffic citation for going 54 in a 40. I called the Law Offices of David White to inquire about fighting the ticket and reducing the charges. Miss Jessica answered and, after hearing my situation, advised me that it would be much more affordable to skip hiring a traffic attorney and speak directly with the County Clerk about taking a Defensive Driving course instead. She also informed me that, after completing the course, I could bring verification of completion to my auto insurance company and negotiate a reduction in my monthly insurance premiums.

    It's refreshing to find an attorney who isn't just in it for the money; Mr. David White and his firm are genuinely interested in helping people through life's tight spots. And you just can't put a price tag on that kind of honesty and personal integrity. If I ever do find myself having another traffic-related "oops," I'll be giving Mr. White and Miss Jessica another call. Thank you!
