It’s hard to say which state’s the worst for speeding tickets because from your perspective, it’s the state where you got pulled over and hit with a huge fine.

But from a more objective standpoint, these are the nine U.S. states that are the most evil when it comes to speeding tickets.

Most Expensive First Offense:

Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Nevada, and New Hampshire.  In all five states, you’re looking at a fine of up to $1,000 on a first offense and potentially a year in jail if you were speeding in a construction or school zone.

Most Expensive State to Fight a Ticket:

Massachusetts.  If you want to fight a ticket, no matter how much it’s for, you have to pay more than $300 in court fees.  And they’re non-refundable, even if you win.

Worst Speed Traps:

Vermont and Connecticut.  Vermont has a lot of places where speed limits suddenly drop and there’s a cop waiting right there to get you.  But Connecticut has the most unmarked police cars in the country by far.
