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

undefinedHighway #58 in Mojave, CA, is desert country, so many times it’s easy to push the speedometer passed the 100 mph mark.

Driving at excessive speeds is a significant concern in CA, especially when the recorded speed passes 100 mph. Getting caught speeding 100+ mph will result in numerous penalties and consequences that one must familiarize oneself with regarding this "major infraction" of the California Vehicle Code.

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

California counties retain jurisdiction over traffic tickets. Therefore, regardless of where you live, you might have to return to Mojave, CA, for your mandatory court appearance or hire a traffic attorney to represent you.

Given the following consequences, that is likely the most prudent decision.

A conviction for the major infraction of speeding 100+ mph will generally lead to:

  1. A fine between $859 and $2,137
  2. The DMV will assess two negligent operator treatment system (NOTS) points.
  3. Two NOTS points are halfway to a full suspension/probation and will remain on the driver’s record for seven years.
  4. The court has the discretion to automatically suspend the driver’s privileges for up to 30 days immediately. “The court may also suspend the privilege of the person to operate a motor vehicle for a period not to exceed 30 days.”CVC Section 22348 (b) (1).
  5. Upon renewal, the driver’s auto insurance provider will likely double or triple their premiums. 

The significant variance in penalties for traffic offenses is attributable to the court's discretion in adjusting the punishment based on various factors, including the individual's personal driving record. Unfortunately, Mojave is known for being extremely strict if convicted. There is a strong chance of a 30 day suspension and a $2,137 fine.  Therefore, beating the ticket is almost always the best answer for avoiding suspension or a big fine. 

It Is Prudent to Consider a Traffic Attorney to Dispute a Speeding 100+ MPH Ticket

Engaging the services of a skilled and well-versed legal professional can prove priceless.

An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can often negotiate for reduced charges or get a dismissal.
