With the new year upon us you may be surprised to know that more than 20% or 1 in 5 people will receive a speeding ticket in the year 2015. Last year the average cost of a speeding ticket in the U.S., including fees, was $152. With a total number of licensed drivers in the U.S. of over 196 million that means that there will be more than 39 million speeding tickets handed out in 2015 for about $5.9 BILLION dollars in revenue.
Last year the state of Texas had the fifth most driving citations in the U.S. This does not necessarily mean that Texas is one of the worst paces for tickets though. This is because Texas is the second largest state by area and one of the more populous states.
The average annual speeding ticket revenue per U.S. police officer for 2014 was approximately $300,000.
