Perhaps you have received a traffic ticket for speeding over 100 mph under VC 22348 (b) and have ended up in an LA traffic court or an Orange County traffic court. You need to know that if convicted in traffic court of this ticket, the consequences are more severe than a conviction for speeding under 100 mph.
Up to a 30 Day Suspension of Your Driver’s License
The most significant consequence is that the judge has the power to suspend your license for up to 30 days. The 30 day driver’s license suspension is not required by law, but the judge has the discretion to suspend your license (many judges decide to exercise this discretion to suspend your license). The traffic court judge doesn’t have to suspend your license for the full 30 days – he can choose to suspend it for 15 days, 10 days, or whatever he sees fit (to a maximum of 30 days).
Two Points on Your DMV Record
If you’re convicted of driving over 100 miles an hour in a California traffic court, you will get 2 points on your DMV record. What’s worse is that you won’t be traffic school eligible if you get convicted of driving over 100 miles per hour, so those 2 points are going to stay on your driving record. Two points on your driving record gets you that much closer to a negligent operator suspension. If you already have two points on your DMV record, you could be looking at a negligent operator suspension immediately.
Attorney Paul J. Denni can help you if you are charged with driving in excess of 100 miles an hour. He has successfully prevented driver’s license suspensions, the two points on your DMV record, and even gotten traffic school for clients on cases such as these (usually traffic school isn’t permitted).
It takes an experienced traffic ticket attorney to know how to handle these types of cases.
