Speeding Violations in California are Expensive if not Dismissed
What is the true cost of a speeding ticket in California?
It depends on what code section you receive a ticket, the fees and court costs that may be added onto the fine, and the increase in your automobile insurance. It is estimated that the true cost of a California speeding ticket is 20.27 times the actual fine.
In some cases, you may be eligible to attend traffic school to avoid having points assessed against your driver’s license; however, traffic school is not available for all speeding tickets in California. Los Angeles is the most expensive city to receive a speeding ticket with Redding having the lowest true cost of a speeding ticket.
The California Vehicle Code contains several statutes regarding speeding violations. CVC Section 22349 is one of the code sections that limit speed limits on certain roads. According to the code, “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person may drive a vehicle upon a two-lane, undivided highway at a speed greater than 55 miles per hour unless that highway, or portion thereof, has been posted for a higher speed by the Department of Transportation or appropriate local agency.” When determining if a highway qualifies under this section, you do not consider passing lanes when counting the through lanes and there cannot be more than one through lane of travel in the same direction.
California Vehicle Code 22349(b) Maximum Speed Limit Violations Can be Costly

Exceeding the speed limit of 55 mph by 1 – 15 mph is a $238, the fine for 16 – 25 mph over the limit is $367, and the fine for 26 mph and over is $490.
