Both of our local papers have had recent articles on the increased amount of speeding tickets that drivers on the Massachusetts Turnpike are receiving:
According to both articles, state records show that 722 more speeding citations have been issued in the first two months of 2008, then were issued in the first two months 2007. That’s a 12% increase and potentially 4,332 more tickets issued on the Mass Pike than were issued last year.
If you get a speeding ticket on the Pike and are found responsible, you will get surcharge points on your insurance, which means more costs and fees. If you have received a speeding ticket or other citation for a moving violation on the Pike, call me for a consultation at 866-981-7888 or email me to arrange a time to meet. You have the right to have a lawyer represent you at all hearings, including at a ticket appeal before a Clerk Magistrate.
