Ticketed for Traveling Too Fast In Connecticut?
Connecticut makes a distinction between “speeding” and “traveling unreasonably fast.” While they are similar offenses that can both result in citations, the big difference is the severity of the penalties. The Sills Law Firm regularly helps clients with speed-related infractions and would be happy to provide you with a risk-free consultation to discuss your options for fighting your ticket.

Speeding, Traveling Unreasonably Fast & Reckless Driving
According to C.G.S. § 14-219, speeding involves a driver who exceeds the posted speed limit by more than 20 miles per hour but is not driving more than 85 miles per hour. Drivers exceeding 85 miles per hour can be charged with reckless driving. Traveling unreasonably fast involves exceeding the posted speed limit by less than 20 miles per hour. While not as serious as a speeding ticket or a reckless driving charge, receiving a ticket for this infraction can still be a headache on a number of levels. A citation can result in hundreds of dollars in fines, a full day’s inconvenience in court, and could potentially result in higher auto insurance premiums.
