Q

I just recently got an infraction -a speeding ticket for going at 104 MPH in Barstow, San Bernardino County, CA. This is my first time getting a ticket so I don't really know how the system works. How much would it cost me to pay for the fine?


A

You will need to call the county court listed on your citation to find out the fine amount for the ticket and if other penalties will apply such you were going over 100 mph.

There is no way for us to list a set amount for traffic citations statewide for California because fines for traffic citations are jurisdictional. The state creates a list called the "Uniform Bail and Penalty Schedule" that has recommendations for fines and penalties for various offenses. Then, judges in each county modify the fines as they see fit to apply to their jurisdiction.

In other words, you can get a ticket for the same offense in two different counties and the fines will be completely different.

That being said it would appear that you were written up under CA Vehicle Code 22348(b). This section of the V.C. states that a person who drives a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than 100 miles per hour is guilty of an infraction punishable, as follows:

Upon a first conviction of a violation of this subdivision, by a fine of not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500). The court may also suspend the privilege of the person to operate a motor vehicle for a period not to exceed 30 days.

If your auto insurance goes up due to this traffic ticket you may want to comparison shop for car insurance prices.
