How Will a Speeding Ticket Affect me?
I recently received my first speeding ticket (Florida). According to the officer I was doing 48 in a 30 zone so I was speeding at about 18 miles over. The officer wrote down that it was an infraction and I am not required to appear in court. From my understanding if I simply pay the fine and take the 4 hour online class then the ticket will basically disappear from my record (so no insurance increase).
My main concern is will this affect me in any other way? Will I have to put down on future applications that I received a speeding ticket or is it considered a misdemeanor? Or when I take the class I can basically say that the ticket was never there and never have to worry about it again?
Thanks in advance for any answers/advice.
