undefined#1—The Fine if Convicted for Speeding 100+ MPH in Mono County

If you've been ticketed for speeding 100+ mph in California, you're looking at a fine between $859 and $2,500. In addition to the fine, there are other reasons you need a traffic attorney to help you dispute your ticket in Mammoth Lakes Courthouse.

That's a hefty price for a moment of carelessness or inattention behind the wheel. But the costs of a speeding ticket can extend beyond just the fine itself. With a conviction, you may see an increase in your insurance rates, which could potentially add up to thousands of dollars, maybe up to even ten thousand, in added premiums, suspension of driving privileges, and negligent operator treatment system (NOTS) points.

#2—The CA DMV Will Assess Two NOTS Points on Your Driving Record

If convicted, the DMV will assess two NOTS points on your motor vehicle driving record (MVR), which will remain there for seven years. Two points is the same for a reckless driving or DUI.

That's why it's important to consider hiring a traffic attorney to dispute your ticket. A skilled attorney can help you navigate the legal system, build a defense strategy, and fight to reduce or dismiss your charges.

When charged with speeding 100+ mph in Mono County, you have a mandatory court appearance in Mammoth Lakes Courthouse or Bridgeport Courthouse. You must resolve your traffic ticket in Mono County regardless of where you're from.

Many drivers find it less expensive to hire a traffic attorney because if not, they might need to return for arraignment and, on another date, to dispute their ticket. Hiring a traffic attorney will negate the need for you to miss work or school and the expense of traveling, such as gas, toll, and hotel.

Plus, you must consider the potential for a reduced charge or outright dismissal. It is possible you could do it yourself, but it is extremely unlikely.

They have a thorough understanding of CA traffic laws and can use their expertise to negotiate with prosecutors and judges to minimize the impact of the ticket on your driving record and insurance premiums.

#3—You Auto Insurance Provider Will Double or Triple Your Premium

When your policy comes up for renewal, your insurance company will see the conviction for speeding 100+ mph and take away your 20% “good driver discount,” and thenif they decide to retain you as a client, increase your premium an amount consistent with the risk of an irresponsible driver who speeds over 100 mph. That could be double or triple what you pay now.

According to, the average CA driver pays $2,291 annually. Can you imagine paying $6873 per year or $572.75 per month? Further, this increase could technically  last seven years until the DMV removes the NOTS points assessment (but 3 or 5 years is almost certain). That could mean of well over $10,000 for just three years.

#4—The Judge Can (and often does) Suspend Your Driving Privileges

While judges in Mono County are slower to suspend drivers license privileges than in some other jurisdictions, they are well within their rights to suspend you for 30 days. An attorney may come up with the magic words that convince a judge, even if you are found guilty, to not suspend your license. 

An attorney can help you identify any errors, inconsistencies, or technicalities in the case against you and help you gather evidence to support your defense. They can also represent you in court, saving you the time and hassle of having to appear yourself. With their help, you may be able to avoid paying the full fine, keep points off your driving record, and protect your insurance rates from going up. So, if you've received a speeding ticket for driving 100+ mph in Mono County, consider reaching out to a traffic attorney to explore your options for disputing the ticket.
