    It depends on the laws in effect in your state. Of course, if the speeds are relatively minor, you will not go to jail, but could have your license suspended after a certain number of arrests. However, as in Illinois, if you are charged with 35 MPH over the limit, you are facing 1 year in jail maximum, or $2500.00 fine, PLUS loss of license. It is called "Aggravated Speeding", and may be coming to a state near you, too!

    It depends on the State. In Michigan speeding is a civil infraction and you can't go to jail for it.? In other States it is a misdemeanor and you can be locked up.
