Determining the average cost of a speeding ticket in Indianapolis is difficult, since Indiana does not have a standard fee. Ticket prices vary throughout the state depending on the location and nature of the violation, according to the Indiana Department of Motor Vehicles.
Traffic officers are no longer writing the amount of the fine on the traffic ticket, as reported by RTV6 ABC. It can take up to 23 days for the court to attach a fine amount to a ticket. The policy change was an initiative crafted by safety court Judge William Young in 2009 as a way to keep up with changes in ticket prices.
