Aggravated Speeding Penalties

Due to the increased dangers demonstrated by drivers who are driving at high speeds, the state laws have made the punishments for aggravated speeding harsher than lesser speeding crimes. Speeding between 26 and 35 mph over the speed limit is considered a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of six months, two years of probation and a fine of up to $1,500. Speeding at 36 mph or more over the speed limit is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail term of one year, up to two years of probation (formal supervision) and a fine of up to $2,500.
