I just got a ticket for going 34 mph in a 25 mph zone in a company car. I understand I will have to pay the fine and have a possible insurance rate increase, but what I'm most concerned about is if it will it have any effect on my companies insurance. I did tell my boss but he really has not said much about it yet.

It would be great n your record. When the insurance company dies their review and pulls your record they will see it. Can you do traffic school and get it off your record?
As a person who drives a company car I can tell you it's a privilege to drive one. It saves me a minimum of $600 a minimum a month. That does not include ANY repairs or maintenance. And not even remotely adding in the absolute depreciation of your vehicke. I drive a minimum of 32,000 mikes a year. That's on a slow year. That $600 is strictly fuel and insurance. Potentially you're looking at $7-800 a month real expense if your boss decides to yank the car.
Dumb bro. Really dumb

They don't ticket the vehicle, they ticket the driver. If the company's rates go up (which is unikely, unless you have other recent tickets), it will be because one of their employees now has a speeding ticket on his record, not because one of their vehicles went too fast. It's not the car's fault, so they dont penalize the vehicle.

I agree, try to plead it down somehow. Traffic school, or on the date of the arraignment go in early and ask to speak with a hearing officer. They'll often knock it down to under 5 MPH over the limit, or cut you some other break just to not have to mess with it.

Has nothing to do with your employers car. They won't even know! It will only show on your record unless you can take traffic school to get it off your record.

Of course they'll know.

Insurance companies pull the employee drivers' records on every renewal of the business' policy.

One ticket on one employee is likely to be inconsequential but they'll know.

Yep. Every year I have to sign the form giving them permission to pull my driving record.

It's nice that you get asked for permission but your employer's insurance company shouldn't need your permission.


I don't know of any state that doesn't allow insurance companies access to motor vehicle records of their policyholders or applicants (including employees).


In fact, insurance companies are often computer connected to the DMV so the record is obtained instantly while the application or renewal is on the underwriter's screen.

Every year the fleet administrator requires us to fill out and sign a form. We have employees all over the country and those in certain states have to sign an additional form . I do not recall what states they are exactly, but we go through the same process every year.

More likely an across the board CYA for the employer which is always a good idea.
