You will be paying a hefty amount in these 25 cities, long after you see the flashing lights behind you.

Speeding tickets are the WORST! They are also completely preventable.

I do more driving than the average human each day, about 4 hours of driving to be exact. It never fails, at least twice a day I see some jerk speeding faster than light down the expressway. I always chuckle to myself when I finally catch up to where super-fast-driver has been pulled over a few miles down the road. Serves you right dangerous driver!

The cost of the average speeding ticket is about $120. But depending on where you live, the 'true cost' of that ticket will be different than others.

According to NerdWallet.comthere are other things you will have to pay for such as legal fees, insurance hikes, court fees and more.

After receiving a speeding ticket, the average Illinois driver will face a $124.80 increase in his annual car insurance rate. Insurance hikes last for five years in Illinois, so drivers can expect to pay $624 more for insurance if they've been caught speeding.  The true cost of a speeding ticket in Illinois is 6.2 times the cost of the actual ticket—drivers pay an average of $744 in total for a $120 speeding ticket.
