The most commonly thought of payable ticket is a Speeding Ticket. You may have heard that you can only get a speeding ticket if you are going more than 10 miles per hour over the speed limit. This is not true. All it takes is going 1 mile per hour over the speed limit to be considered a speeding violation. All speeding violations carry points and, depending on the speed, can carry as much as 5 points and over $500 in fines.
Other common tickets are Reckless and Negligent Driving Tickets. Reckless Driving has a maximum fine of $510 and 6 points. Negligent Driving has a maximum fine of $140 and 1 point. These types of tickets most commonly occur when someone is involved in a traffic accident.
There are literally hundreds of traffic violations. All of them carry possible fines and most of them carry points violations if found guilty.
