A heavily-modified 1952 Ford 8N tractor, which is utterly unlike anything
you’d see in Independence or Bishop, broke an 81-year-old record
by travelling 96.3185mph.
Jack Donohue of Fletcher, North Carolina, was only the second man in history
to attempt to set a new land speed record with a tractor, a factoid that
gives some indication of the sport’s popularity. Mr. Donohue paid
homage to the previous record-holder, “Ab” Jenkins, by pointing
out that the speed mark is “only one of many that Jenkins still
holds and this is almost 60 years after his passing.”
Mr. Donohue plans to enter the 8ncredible in the Ohio Mile later in the
spring of 2016, where he hopes to eclipse the elusive
100mph barrier in a tractor.
Whether it occurs in a tractor, car, truck, or anything else, a
VC 22348(b) infraction means $900 in fines, penalty assessments, and add-ons, but
the direct monetary costs are just the beginning.
In terms of license suspension, a 100+mph infraction is one of the few
two-point violations in the Vehicle Code. Especially if you are a commercial
driver, a citation puts you dangerously close to
NOTS suspension. A conviction also means automatic license suspension of 30 days for a
first offense, six months for a second and one year for a third, regardless
of your driving record.
There is also the matter of indirect costs. Many drivers see their insurance
rates go up by as much as 90 percent a month for 36 months, before they
become eligible for a reduction. Traffic school is normally not an option
in a VC 22348(b) case, so there is no way to get the points reduced.
An attorney can get the ticket thrown out of court, or at least get the
fines and/or points reduced, which saves you lots of money.
