VC 22348 (b) – Speeding Over 100 MPH Prohibited
A conviction for speeding over 100 mph in Orange County results in several severe consequences.
Although it can vary a great deal from court to court, or judge to judge, generally a first conviction for this charge (VC 22348 (b)) carries with it about a $900 fine, a 30-day license suspension, and two points on your driving record. If that isn’t bad enough, the two points remain on your Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) record for a long, long, seven years. (This is compared to a regular one-point violation, which remains on your record for three years.) Your insurer will note that VC 22348 (b) violation and your insurance rates, over a 7-year period might double costing you untold $1,000’s of extra dollars.
If you have prior speeding charges, the license suspension can be even longer. In addition, the two points will be added to your record and if you receive four points in one year, six points in two years, or eight points in three years, the DMV may suspend your license as a negligent operator.
