Speeding Violations Over 100mph have Major Consequences
Each person obtaining a California driver’s license must pass a written and driving test. The 2015 CA Driver Handbook reviews traffic laws, a driver’s responsibilities when operating a motor vehicle, and other applicable information. What most drivers do not know is that if they drive at speeds of 100 mph or more, they face extremely severe penalties if they are found guilty. While it may seem impossible to drive at that rate of speed, traffic on California interstates and highways can move at a very high rate of speed. Some vehicles are manufactured with larger engines to provide greater speed. It is too tempting for some drivers, especially for those who love driving at high rates of speed.
Unfortunately, if a driver chooses to drive a vehicle at speeds greater than 100 mph, the driver can receive a California speeding ticket under CVC Section 22348. The code specifically states that if “A person who drives a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than 100 miles per hour” that person will be guilty of an infraction. If you receive a speeding ticket for driving at a speed greater than 100 mph, the law requires that you or your attorney appear before a judge. This is a mandatory court appearance even if you are pleading guilty.
The potential punishments for a guilty verdict under CVC 22348 include:
- Two points applied to your driver’s license
- The judge can suspend your driver’s license for 30 days
- A fine of up to $1,000
- Traffic school is not an option for this violation
CVC Section 22348 also states that a vehicle subject to CVC Section 22406 must be driven in the designated lane and if no lane is designated, the vehicle must be driving in the right hand lane. If you are found guilty of a ticket for Failure of Vehicles Subject to VC 22406 to Use Designated Lane, you will have a fine of $238 and one point against your driver’s license.
California Vehicle Code 22348 Applies to Most Vehicles
This applies to the following vehicles:
- Trucks with three or more axles or a truck tractor drawing another vehicle
- A passenger vehicle or bus drawing another vehicle
- A school bus transporting any student
- A farm labor vehicle transporting passengers
- A vehicle transporting explosives
- A trailer bus as defined in Section 636
