Speeding Laws In California  

In the US, some of the highest speeding fines are prevalent in the state of California. A simple speeding ticket fine is around $300 and this is excluding the additional amount the driver would have to pay on insurance besides racking up negative credits.

In California, if you receive 4 negative points in 12 months, 6 in 24 months and 8 in 36 months, your license is automatically suspended and this offense will stay on the driver's records for a period of 36 months.

Speeding laws in California are designed to deter excessive speeds. For instance, if you are caught speeding over 70 mph, you will receive 1 point, over 100 miles is 2 points, speeding beyond the prescribed speed limit of an area is 1 point, speeding in a construction zone is 1 point and reckless driving attracts 2 points. Each of these charges stay on the person's record for 3 years, and the risk of revocation of the license is also there.

As per the speeding laws in California, a driver caught driving over 100 mph can be penalized with license suspension of 30 days or less and be liable to pay fine of up to $500. This is usually the punishment for the first offense. However, if the same driver is caught speeding again in the next 3 years, he can be fined up to $750 and have his license suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). In case the driver is caught speeding for the third time within 5 years of the first two offenses, the fine is increased to $1,000 and the license is revoked for period as decided by the court.
