Speeding violations are a common type of traffic offense that our firm handles for clients. Recall that Wisconsin’s basic speeding law prohibits driving at a speed greater than reasonable and prudent under the conditions, though the state also implements fixed speeding limits, including (but not limited to):
- 15 mph when passing school grounds
- 15 mph in alleys
- 15 mph on most street roads and town roads
- 65 mph on most expressways
- 70 mph on freeways
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.

Moving Versus 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 seen as less risky than a moving violation. An example of a non-moving violation is a defective speedometer, which is 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 it comes to determining insurance premiums.
