What You Should Know about Speeding Tickets in California

Submitted by ttattrny

All roadways throughout California and the rest of the country maintain speed limits that all drivers must abide by. Many drivers are informed on some of the most common speeding law infractions, still, others may not be sure about the process that will unfold after they receive a speeding ticket. Here is a look at these potentially expensive charges, and the process that should be carried out in order for individuals to move past one of these speeding violations without paying huge fines and fees.

No matter how careful a driver is, speeding violations can happen at any time. Even the most diligent and safe drivers may find themselves with an expensive speeding ticket that could cost them hundreds or thousands of dollars in the long run. What differentiates speeding tickets from many other charges it the fact that they are classified as a moving violation. These kinds of charges will come with their own unique set of penalties, starting with the initial fines and fees from the DMV and courthouse.

When many individuals see the charges for a speeding ticket, they do not realize just how quickly these violations can escalate. While the base fines may seem manageable, court assessment fees could add hundreds of dollars to a speeding ticket. Those that have multiple speeding tickets within a short period of time can expect the count fines to run as high as $300 or more. For individuals that have only a single moving violation within the past few years, traffic school is another option that some drivers may consider.

Traffic school can be used to keep the first point off of a driver's record within a period of a few years. Sadly, these schools not only requires hours of the driver's time, they can also cost hundreds of dollars in tuition and the driver will still be forced to pay the fines. For those that fail to head to traffic school, DMV will place a point on your driving record for the violations. With as little as 4 points being placed in a single year, a driver will have their license suspended for several months. All insurance companies are also given access to driving records, and each point could increase their insurance premiums by thousands of dollars every single year until the points are removed.

When a drivers finances and their record is on the line, they should never accept these kinds of charges without a fight. Even a momentary lapse in judgment or an inexperienced law enforcement officer could cost the driver thousands of dollars. This is why more individuals than ever are now turning to experienced legal representatives that will help them to lower or completely remove the penalties of these common violations.
