Speeding in Connecticut is against the law. This is a very common driving offense that many people face at least once in their lives. Here are the facts that you need to know about tickets for this offense.
You can either plead not guilty, and take your speeding ticket case to court, or you can pay your ticket. When you pay a ticket, it means that you aren’t denying or admitting to the charges. Instead, you plead nolo contendere which means no contest. If you are an out-of-state driver pleading nolo contendere, your home state will be advised of the case.
A judge will determine the fine that you have to pay for a ticket related to this offense.
You will not lose any points on your driver’s license if you pay a speeding ticket in full or if you’re found not guilty.
If you are convicted in court of speeding (that is, if you choose to fight the ticket and lose), points will be assessed from your license by the DMV.
