As the Novel Coronavirus has resulted in most Californians being told to shelter in place and only essential travel is allowed on our highways, The California Highway Patrol is reporting a rise in motorists traveling at excessive speeds.
The CHP’s Golden Gate Division posted on Facebook on March 4, 2020, that there had been a “steady rise” in the number of tickets issued for drivers going in excess of 100 mph throughout the nine county San Francisco Bay Area.
If you receive a speeding ticket for exceeding 100 mph you could be punished by fines of approximately $800.00, and could have your driver’s license suspended for 30 days. In addition, a 100 mph citation for speeding carries two points on a driver’s DMV record. Drivers facing any moving violation in Novato, San Rafael, San Francisco, Oakland, or anywhere in the Bay Area should call an experienced aggressive traffic ticket attorney for help.
