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

undefinedSpeeding over 100 mph on the open roads of Mojave, CA can be exhilarating until you see the flashing lights and hear the sirens. 

It also comes with its share of risks – especially when the speedometer climbs over 100 mph. Many drivers mistakenly believe that a desolate road is a free ticket to push their vehicle's limits—they feel “the need for speed.”

However, the consequences of speeding over 100 mph are severe and long-lasting. In fact, despite the open roads, Mojave Court is one of the toughest in the state. Mojave routinely will give drivers the maximum $2137 fine and the maximum 30-day suspension of their drivers license. 

Speeding Over 100 MPH Requires a Mandatory Court Appearance in Mojave, CA

Unlike other speeding violations, if you're caught speeding over 100 mph, a mere payment of a fine won't suffice. 

A mandatory court appearance in Mojave, CA, is required, making the violation all the more expensive. This isn't a situation where the driver can simply mail in their fine and move on. It requires you to stand before a judge and face the consequences, which could be stiffer than one might imagine. However, using our legal services could be more convenient and less expensive.

Although it might not seem appropriate to say a lawyer could be less expensive than self-representation, when you consider the possibility of a dismissal or reduced penalty versus self-incrimination, it makes perfect sense.

We see it time and again while waiting for the court bailiff to call our client’s name, driver after driver proclaims their innocence to the traffic court judge and then with the very next breath says something like, “I was just keeping up with traffic.” We can only sit there and cringe, knowing we will hear the judge say, “Guilty, pay the court clerk your fine on the way out and leave your driver’s license with the bailiff!”

The Fine for Speeding Over 100 MPH Will Be Between $859 & $2,137, If Convicted

The financial consequences of speeding over 100 mph are considerable. 

While the “base fine” for such a violation is usually between $300 to $500, it doesn't stop there. Due to added surcharges, penalties, and assessments introduced since the original 1959 traffic code enactment, the actual amount you'd need to pay can be nearly five times the base fine as prescribed in the CA Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 22348Speed Laws

This means you could be looking at a total ranging from $859 to a whopping $2,137. A hefty price to pay for a few moments of thrill.

Violators Are Not Eligible for Traffic Violator’s School

To add to the complexities, those who are caught speeding over 100 mph cannot simply attend Traffic Violator’s School to mask their violation. Since this is a major infraction with a  mandatory court appearance, this option is off the table. That means, if convicted, the two negligent operator treatment system (NOTS) points will remain on your record for seven years, affecting various aspects of your life, especially when it comes to insurance premiums.

Your Auto Insurance Could Double or Triple

The financial ramifications don’t end with the fine. With a speeding over 100 mph violation on your record, auto insurance companies view you as a high-risk driver. As a result, your insurance premiums could double or even triple. This hike will last for years, translating to thousands of dollars in additional costs over time. According to, the average California driver will pay $2,290 in premiums in 2023. Imagine paying $4,500 to nearly $7,000 in 2025.

The Judge Could Suspend Your Driving Privileges for 30-Days, Immediately

Finally, and perhaps most perturbing for many drivers living or working in Mojave, CA, is the immediate suspension of driving privileges. 

A judge has the discretion to suspend your license on the spot for up to 30 days. This not only disrupts personal life but can also have dire consequences for those who rely on driving for their livelihood.

“The court may also suspend the privilege of the person to operate a motor vehicle for a period not to exceed 30 days pursuant to Section 13200.5.”—CVC 22348 (b) (1)Speed Laws.
