Cost of violation code 22349(a)

The actual cost of violation code 22349(a), exceeding 65 mph freeway speed, can be much higher than just the court imposed fine for the ticket. If you just pay the traffic ticket, a point will be added to your driving record and can stay there for 3 more years. Think about it, depending on how many points you have on your driving record and who you use for your auto insurance, the true cost of this one traffic ticket on your driving record could end up being $2,700 or more over 3 years.

You may also want to keep in mind that if you have 4 points on your driving record in on year, or 6 points in 2 years, or 8 points in 3 years, the DMV will suspend your driver’s license.

The estimated total court fine for violation code 22349(a), exceeding 65 mph freeway speed, will vary based on the additional county and city fees added on to the State fine for this ticket.
