Parents in Delano and Ridgecrest cringed when they saw that a teenage driver in New York with a learner’s permit was stopped travelling 105mph.
The unnamed, and unfortunate, young man was spotted by an Erie County Sheriff’s deputy travelling “at a high rate of speed;” 105mph in a 45mph zone certainly qualifies as such. The officer began pursuit but quickly gave up the chase when the driver refused to pull over. Officers quickly located the car in a Colden driveway, where they issued citations for speeding, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and fleeing police in a motor vehicle.
Authorities had no explanation for the driver’s behavior; he was subsequently released to his parents.
100+ mph ticket
For drivers of any age in Central California, a VC 22348(b) citation has serious consequences. First of all, there are the direct costs. Even for a first offense at 101mph, the fines and penalty assessments can be thousands of dollars. Furthermore, many insurance companies consider this infraction to be the equivalent of reckless driving, so it is not unusual for auto insurance rates to skyrocket.
Finally, there is the matter of actual and possible license suspension. Upon conviction, the judge can suspend your license for up to 30 days. 22348(b) citations are also one of the few two-point infractions in the Vehicle Code, so just one ticket brings you dangerously close to NOTS suspension. Traffic school may not be an option in these cases, due to the extreme velocity.
An attorney can help you avoid some or all of these consequences, saving you money and keeping you on the road.
