Traveling this summer? Remember California speed law basics

Traveling this summer? Remember California speed law basics. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.  Traveling this summer? Watch for speed limit changes when crossing county and state lines or entering towns.  The general speed limit for California freeways is 65 mph. In more rural areas you might see higher posted speeds of 70 mph or lower posted speeds of 55 mph on two lane highways.  Lower speed in unfamiliar areas, especially when entering towns, business districts, or residential areas where speed limits can drop to as low 25 mph.  Remember, getting nabbed for speeding can result in one or two negative marks on your driving record and a fine of up to $500. –  blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers fight their traffic tickets.

Is Speedometer Malfunction Enough to Dismiss a Speeding Ticket

Is Speedometer Malfunction Enough to Dismiss a Speeding Ticket blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

If you can prove your speedometer was broken can you get out of a ticket? The answer is maybe. You were technically speeding sure, but in your defense you didn’t know you were speeding. Some courts will accept a report from an automotive repair shop showing the calibration of error and a copy of a repair bill to dismiss a speeding ticket. It all depends on the discretion of the judge of course, but also how fast you were going, the legal limit, and what the speedometer calibration report reveals. In Mendocino County for example, the court will dismiss a speeding ticket if you were cited for no more than 10 miles-per-hour above the legal limit and can provide a calibration report showing the error and a copy of the repair bill before your ticket due date. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Caught Speeding Over 100 and What to Expect

Caught Speeding Over 100 and What to Expect- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

The officer may have caught you using police radar, bumper pace, or even aircraft. Now that you’ve been ticketed you may be wondering what your next step will be.

In California, speeding over 100 miles per hour is an infraction however you will likely be required to make a mandatory appearance in court. To compare, if you are ticketed for speeding below 100 miles per hour you can typically pay the fine or contest the ticket in writing without having to make an appearance in court.

Some judges will consider a written request to waive a mandatory appearance and allow you to pay the ticket by mail or contest it by mail. Such requests should be made well in advance of your due date so you have sufficient time to receive a reply from the court.

A speeding ticket over 100 can seriously affect a driving record because the California DMV assigns 2 points instead of the single point that most other speeding infractions carry. A California driver only needs 4 points to be at risk for a suspended license.  –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Los Angeles County Speeding Ticket Dismissed

Los Angeles County Speeding Ticket Dismissed – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

A driver feeling down on his luck came to TicketBust.com with a Los Angeles County speeding ticket. The Los Angeles County Sherriff Department had issued a ticket for 4 miles per hour over the speed limit with use of laser detection. TicketBust.com ticket fighting experts got to work gathering the facts and circumstances behind the ticket through an over the phone consultation with the driver. TicketBust.com then prepared a Trial by Written Declaration describing the incident, raising the requirements the officer must meet in order to use evidence of laser, and requesting for a dismissal based on several factors including why the officer could not have had a clear line of sight to the driver’s vehicle to accurately assess speed using laser. Laser is said to be more accurate than modes of speed detection such as radar, but the officer still must have a clear line of sight to the target vehicle! In this case, the officer had been parked very far away and any attempt to clock the driver’s car would have been diminished by the driver’s vehicle being surrounded by other vehicles. The driver recently called TicketBust.com, ecstatic to have received a letter of dismissal from LA Superior Court and that TicketBust.com had left him with no fine, no points, and no worries! –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
