Protect Your Driving Privileges Fight Your Ticket With Bigger & Harman Today

undefinedAlthough there is a mandatory court appearance for 100+ mph speeding in Barstow, CA, you should consult a CA traffic attorney and do what they recommend.

The stretch of I-15 from LA to Las Vegas has the second highest incident of 100+ mph speeding tickets in Ca. The first is I-5 from LAX to San Francisco, primarily in rental vehicles. 

CA Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 22348Speed Laws, states, “A person who drives a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than 100 miles per hour is guilty of an infraction…” 

Despite what the traffic code states, many articles on the internet say that it is a misdemeanor, which is not valid. The only misdemeanor speeding ticket in CA is driving 15 or more mph over the statewide 55 mph speed limit for commercial vehicles, not 100+ mph speeding.

However, the fine and penalties, particularly the increased auto insurance premium for seven years, can destroy practically anyone’s budget. According to Bankrate, the average Californian’s premium of $2,190 annually, and they double or triple that; the final cost of a conviction is astronomical. 

Your actual premium depends on nearly a dozen factors such as, claims history, your zip code, vehicle type, how many miles per year you drive to and from work or school, but the two most significant factors are the age of drivers and their MVR.

Sometimes convicted drivers must sell their new cars that require full coverage and buy a previously owned vehicle. The wise decision would be to consult a traffic attorney and follow their recommendation. 

The Other Extreme Consequences of a 100+ MPH Speeding Conviction

The fine, if convicted, is between $900 and $2,500. Too many drivers Google the fine for 100+ mph speeding, and they see “…a fine of not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500).” That’s only half of the truth. The other half is that it is only the “base fine.” 

Most CA judges penalize guilty drivers between $300 and $500. However, the county and state add ten surcharges, penalties, and assessments that bring the total above $800

What are these surcharges, assessments, and penalties?

  1. 100% state penalty assessment.
  2. 20% state surcharge.
  3. 70% county assessment.
  4. 50% for a court construction penalty.
  5. 10% DNA assessment or penalty.
  6. 40% DNA Identification funding.
  7. 20% Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Penalty.
  8. $4.00 per conviction for EMAT penalty.
  9. $40.00 per conviction for court operations.
  10. $1.00 per conviction for night court operations, whether you use it or not.

Not all counties or incidents can claim all these penalties, but a $500 base fine could become a total fine of $2,595 if all apply.

Yet, that’s not all. If convicted, the judge has the discretion to suspend your driving privileges for 30 days automatically, and the two NOTS points put you halfway to a six-month suspension and 12 months of probation.
