What are Speeding Ticket Prices in California?
Recently a 17-year-old female posed a question in a chat room. She wrote
that she had been ticketed doing 50 miles per hour in 35 miles per hour
zone and then a week later she received another citation for going 60 miles
per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone. Poor girl sent out a desperate
plea for information on speeding ticket prices in California.
Below is a recap of some of the answers she received.
One person said it cost $140 plus an extra $30 fee for going 56 in a 35. They recommended that the girl go to traffic school using an online course.
Another out of San Diego was going 84 in a 65. Speeding ticket price was $273.00 bail plus another $24.95 traffic school; total = $297.95.
Traveling on the 101, another driver was going 85 in a 65 zone and their total speeding ticket price was $213.84.
Another out of San Diego, between El Centro and Yuma said that the cop ‘clocked her’ 92MPH, but only gave the citation at 85MPH in a 70 zone. They anticipated having to pay a speeding ticket price of $195 plus $20 -$30, for traffic school.
Apparently speeding ticket prices go up a lot when you travel more than 15 MPH over the speed limit as the following answer implies.
Going westbound on I-15, about 20 minutes outside of Baker, California, he was going 95 in a 70 zone. The officer told the driver the speeding ticket price would be around $250.
Another driver got a ticket on Interstate 10 going 110 in a 70 zone. The cop said it would cost $600 but the driver ended up paying the final speeding ticket price of $420. Unfortunately, in addition to the speeding tickets prices, this driver had his license suspended for one month.
Going 91 in a 65 zone in Bishop, California has a speeding ticket price of $350.
In Torrance going 72 in a 45 (even really late at night when the roads are ‘dead’) costs over $350.
So what do all the speeding ticket prices have in common? They were all paid by the drivers. All these drivers had their insurance premium increase on average of 27% for a single ticket and up to 40% if it is a second offense.
