Does a Traffic Violation Affect Insurance in Arkansas?
Yes, a traffic violation can affect your insurance rates in Arkansas. Insurance companies generally consider your driving record when deciding your premiums, and a traffic violation can lead to an increase in your rates. They use a point system to determine the impact of a traffic violation on your rates. Each violation is allotted a certain number of points, and the more points you accumulate, the more your rates are likely to see an increase.

Consequences of Speeding in Arkansas
One of the most common traffic crimes is speeding. Penalties for speeding vary depending on how many miles per hour over the speed limit you were traveling, where you were driving, and the number of your previous violations. The punishments can get more serious the more traffic violations you have on your record.
Drivers going more than 15 mph over the speed limit can be charged with a Class C misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a large fine. Speeding in a construction zone subjects the driver to harsher penalties.
Those who are caught speeding in a school zone may have to face enhanced penalties, including jail time, large fines, and a driver’s license suspension.
