What are the Fixed Speeding Limits in Wisconsin?

In Wisconsin, the fixed speeding limits are as follows:

  • 15 mph in school zones
  • 25 mph in residential areas and business districts
  • 65 mph on freeways and interstate highways (some stretches have a maximum speed limit of 70 mph or 75 mph, but these are less common)

It's important to note that these are the fixed speed limits, but the actual speed limit may be lower depending on the road conditions, weather, and other factors. Additionally, some municipalities may have specific speed limits, which may differ from the statewide limits. It's always important to obey posted speed limit signs and adjust your speed according to the conditions of the road. Speeding tickets in Wisconsin can result in fines, points on your license, and potentially even license suspension or revocation, so driving responsibly and obeying the speed limit is essential. 

How Much Is a Speeding Ticket in Wisconsin?

The penalties for speeding tickets include $30-$300 in fines and demerit points on the driver’s record. Note that the fines may be doubled if the offense occurred near a school or construction zone.

What's the Difference Between a Moving and Non-moving Violation?

When your insurance company determines the risk level of your insurance policy, they look at the type of violations on your driving record. In most instances, a non-moving violation is considered less risky than a moving one. An example of a non-moving violation is a defective speedometer or an equipment violation. A speeding ticket, on the other hand, is a moving violation. 

It’s important to note that every insurance company looks at moving versus non-moving tickets differently when determining insurance premiums.

What Is Considered Reckless Driving?

Reckless driving occurs when an individual operating a vehicle drives in a way that can cause injury or the risk of harm to others. In Wisconsin, this includes negligence resulting in bodily or great bodily harm. The level of penalty will differ based on the charge. For example, a first-offense reckless driving charge may receive a fine, while a reckless driving charge that caused an injury could lead to jail time.

Examples of Reckless Driving:

  • Driving while intoxicated 
  • Driving while texting or distracted 
  • Driving at an excessively high speed
  • Engaging in racing with other drivers
  • Driving in an aggressive manner, often referred to as road rage
  • Refusing to stop at an intersection when the light turns red
