Can a ticket older than 3 years still hurt your rate?

My insurance rates went up because of a speeding ticket 6 years ago. Is this really allowed? I thought I would only be charged for 3 years?

Once the ticket passes 3 years, then your insurance company should no longer be charging you for the incident. If that specific ticket is why you’re being charged a higher rate, then I would recommend shopping around for a company that will accurately price your coverage. There is no sense in paying more than you should.
