I get a lot of questions from friends and clients about insurance points. In NC, when you get in a car wreck, or receive a speeding ticket, you get license points AND insurance points.
Insurance Points = $$$$
Insurance points determine the increase in the cost of your insurance. For example, if you pay a speeding ticket for 75 in a 55, you will get 4 insurance points and your rates will go up by 90%.

Don't Just Pay the Ticket
Also, don't simply pay the ticket!!! You may have ways to reduce the ticket and save yourself money, and even more importantly, your license.
