Tickets issued by the police can indeed cause your insurance premiums to rise. When you receive a ticket for a traffic violation, such as speeding, running a red light, or reckless driving, it signals to your insurance company that you are a higher-risk driver. As a result, they may increase your insurance premiums to compensate for the increased likelihood of future claims.

Insurance companies consider various factors when determining premiums, and traffic tickets are one of the key factors that can lead to higher rates. The rationale behind this is that drivers who have received tickets in the past are statistically more likely to be involved in accidents or commit traffic violations in the future. Insurance companies use historical data to assess risk, and a driver with a history of tickets represents a higher risk.

Jonathan Perazzo, otherwise known as JP, shares one of the reasons why you shouldn’t pay for a ticket issued for a moving violation. As a car accident lawyer that confronts insurance providers on a daily basis, JP knows that paying a ticket can increase your insurance premium, simply because it makes you a less safe driver to insure.

There are various reasons why individuals may lose control of their vehicles, including strokes, intoxication, and vehicle malfunctions. Each of these factors can significantly impact a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely.

  1. Strokes: Strokes occur when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, leading to the impairment of brain function. A stroke can affect a person’s motor skills, vision, coordination, and cognitive abilities, making it extremely dangerous to drive. If a stroke occurs while driving or just before getting behind the wheel, it can result in a sudden loss of control, putting the driver, passengers, and others on the road at risk.
