California Speeding Tickets are Expensive
Speeding tickets are the most common type of traffic tickets issued in California.
A traffic ticket can be quite costly when you take into consideration the fine for the ticket and the increase in your automobile insurance costs. There are several reasons why people choose to exceed the posted speed limit — they are bored, they enjoy driving at fast speeds, they are in a hurry, or they are showing off. Regardless of the reason why a person chooses to drive faster than the posted speed limit, speeding is against the law.
Section 22356 of the California Vehicle Code gives the California Department of Transportation the authority to raise the speed limit on California highways from 65 mph to 70 mph. In order for the Department of Transportation to raise the speed limit to 70 mph, it must consult with the California Highway Patrol and review engineering and traffic surveys to determine that an increased speed would facilitate the safe and orderly movement of traffic along that stretch of road.
CVC Section 22356 also states, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon that highway at a speed greater than 70 miles per hour, as posted.”
If you receive a California traffic ticket for exceeding the posted speed limit, you will receive one point against your driver’s license and a fine. The fine is based on your speed.
A fine for “Exceeding Maximum Speed Limit of 70 MPH” by 1 mph to 15 mph is $238 but the fine increases to $367 if you are guilty of exceeding the speed limit by 16 mph to 25 mph. If you are traveling 26 mph or more over the speed limit, your fine will be $490.
