Speeding Ticket Fines

The amount you'll pay for a Texas speeding ticket is set by the municipality you were ticketed in. The citation itself may have fine information on it, or you may need to contact the court to see how much you are required to pay. All municipalities use a scale to determine how much to fine you, based on how many miles per hour over the speed limit you were going, but the scale is different for each locality. To give you an idea of the differences between fines in different municipalities, here are the schedules of fines from some of our major cities.
