Crap I just got a speeding ticket.
« on: 06/27/12 07:00AM »
I was on the 91 freeway toll road. I was nailed for doing 80 in a 65 by a chp bike. Has anyone had a ticket recently and have any idea as to how much this ticket is going to cost? ( I'm guessing about $500.00 to $600.00)
Also does anyone know if I can do traffic school online?

ouch, i would say 400-500....maybe a little more if you do traffic school due to the fee's. as for traffic school,  dont see why you wouldnt be able to do it unless you have already completed that course in the last 18 months?

I just received a ticket going 57 mph on a 35mph two months ago and It was 233.19. Though I am fighting it! As to online traffic school it depends on the courts.

Did he cite you in Orange or Riverside?  Riverside will allow you to complete traffic school online; however, Orange is somewhat strict about online schools.  Once your notification arrives in the mail, call the Court and ask about online schools.

You fee shouldn't exceed $300, but no promises.

Good luck,

Wow...80? Seriously? I do 80 regularly on the freeways (91 every day). Bout the same speed as everyone else (besides traffic). Maybe I should go slower than everyone else and cause more traffic by having everybody try and pass me.

I think if you're cited for 15+ MPH over the speed limit you can't do traffic school.  I've experienced and heard of several instances though where the cop will write you up just low enough so you can take traffic school.  theman, I think you might need to show up to court and ask for the traffic school.

fluffing petty.
The speedometer only serves as a distraction.

I got a ticket on the 91 before for going 71 in a 65. Ticket was $346.

I really wish they'd leave the common rider alone and go after someone actually dangerous rather than filling their quota. :/

actually i believe its 20+ you cannot do traffic school.
Orange does have an online traffic school you can take, i did it last year. They even have a level 2 traffic school but its not available online.

Both 1-15 and 16-30 over should have the code 22349 a. But I think 15+ get's a (+) next to it. You can do traffic school if you haven't done it in the last 18 months like someone said above.

I got a 80 in 65 coming down the I-5 and it was $287 + $61 for traffic school. It was a little further north though. GL on the ticket.

Fines vary and can be up to $500 as long as you haven't had any previous tickets within 3 years, after that the max fine goes up to $750.  As always, if the fine is a concern you can always go plea your case (written or in person), and asked for a reduced fine.  I had a $300 fine reduced to $100 and the 4 hours of my time was well worth it.  You can plea your case in writing, which is what I did with my last speeding ticket, and beat it.  8)  That only cost me about 2 hours of research and $10 or so in postage.  Good luck!

95+ on a 65. Ticket in the mail said $467. Went to court, asked judge to reduce it. Paid $264 pled guilty. The one before I tried to fight like everyone tells you to, I ended up paying $489 plus for all the extra extensions. I should have just pled guilty and asked the judge to reduce it. I would have at least saved some money.

Either way its my fault for speeding to begin with, but just saying.

For 80 in a 65 zone, its only 15 over. Speeds are tiered into increments, if it falls within certain increments, it is fined differently. Anything over 26mph is the same price (unless you get arrested and bike impounded, different charge than speeding).

My ticket for 80 in a 65 in LA county was $234. Much less than my previous 94mph ticket at $480 in the same county.

You can probably calculate it manually by checking the citing county's bail schedule.

The cop clocked me doing 85mph, but he said he would cut me a break and only right me up for doing 80mph so I could go to traffic school. He told me anything over 80mph and you cant go to traffic school. Ill give an update when I get my ticket in the mail.
