Bakersfield Speeding Over 100 MPH Lawyer
Kern County Speeding Ticket Attorneys
Speeding is something that a large majority of the American public does. At times many aren’t even aware that they are pushing the speed limit because of a variety of reasons. Regardless, this is a serious traffic offense in the eyes of the law as it constitutes extremely reckless behavior. In terms of speeding, California law dictates that anyone driving over 35 mph over the speed limit are considered to be engaging in reckless driving.
What are the Penalties for Speeding Over 100 MPH?
While other speeding tickets in California can come with exorbitant ticket amount, driving over 100 mph typically does come with a higher fee. The main different between the two being that with a ticket over 100 mph you have the possibility of having your licenses suspended for 30 days. With each offense, after your first, you are subject to increased fines if it is within seven years of your first offense; these fines can be up to a thousand-dollars. In addition, a speeding ticket is subject to a 2 points on your license which is also what is given to an individual charged with a DUI.
California law does state under Vehicle Code Section 22350, that one should not be traveling faster that was is reasonable, as well as, showing judgment of speed regarding visibility and weather conditions. It falls on the driver to be aware when they are causing undue safety dangers to any other people and/or property. As one can see this does not include any specific speed limit because the road can be unpredictable and there can be instances when traveling faster than the speed limit is appropriate. However, as stated before, going 35 mph over the speed limit is never acceptable.
Is Going Over 100 MPH a Felony in California?
Speeding over 100 mph in California is considered a crime, but whether it is classified as a felony or a misdemeanor depends on the circumstances of the offense.
This offense is known as excessive speeding and is considered a misdemeanor. However, suppose a person is driving at a speed greater than 100 mph and is also engaging in reckless driving, such as weaving in and out of traffic or driving in a manner that shows a disregard for the safety of others. In that case, they may be charged with a felony under California Vehicle Code Section 23103.5.
