California Speeding Ticket Cost
One of the most common question I get is that go into how much a California Speeding Ticket Costs? There are no simple answers, because there is a variety of factors that go into how much a California Speeding Ticket Cost.
The first one is the penalties and assessments. This sounds confusing and it is. For example, a ticket costing $50 will cost significantly more after the penalties and assessment. In the end, a ticket with a base fine of only 50.00 will cost 250 or 300 dollars. This is not the end of it. In addition to this amount, you will have to pay for the ticket is dictated by how much over the speed limit you were going. Obviously, if you were going faster than the speed limit, you will have a bigger problem and a bigger fine. If you were going anywhere from 1-15 miles, then you are in the first bracket of speed. However, if you were going anywhere from 16-25 miles, then you are in the next bracket. If you were going over 25 miles, then you are in the highest bracket, which will add more to your California Speeding Ticket Cost.
Enhancements are another thing as well. If you were going over 100 miles per hour, then you are going to face a speeding enhancement and a 30 days license suspension. If this happens and you are caught driving, then you are going to face a new driving on a suspended license charge.
A point may hit as a result of the ticket. If this happens, then your insurance rates will jump significantly, which will add to your California Speeding Ticket Cost. It is important to factor in the points and any other collateral consequences as a result of your ticket. In most circumstances, a person may be eligible for traffic school on their ticket. However, in order to ensure traffic school, a person must elect it before going to the trial. This is problematic especially if there is a proof problem with the ticket.
