Routine traffic tickets such as speeding and failure to yield can result in fines, explains Nolo. More serious violations can result in fines as well, such as reckless or drunk driving.
As of 2015, fines for routine tickets can range from $75 and $300, depending on the state law, Nolo reports. States normally have standard fines for particular violations based on the type of traffic offense. Some states set the fine based on whether the driver has other violations on his record.
Misdemeanor and felony traffic charges also result in fines that are substantially higher. Some traffic violations may impose a fine for the driver as well as jail time, according to Nolo.
