speeding ticket price in texasWhen you receive a ticket in Texas, the actual fine amount is determined by the municipality where you received the ticket. Either the citation will list the fine, or you may have to contact the respective court to determine how much you will have to pay. Either way, you can usually take a TX defensive driving course to avoid having the points go on your driving record. Every municipality uses a scale to base their fine on, which considers the number of MPH over the posted speed limit you were traveling. Even so, these scales can vary based on the locality. To put this variance into perspective, the following information examines three different major Texas municipalities and their respective fines:Start Your Online Course Now to Dismiss Your Ticket
