Turn at Intersection From Wrong Position
22100 a vc or 22100 b vc Fine $234 DMV Point 1 (2012)

The fine for violation of California vehicle code section 22100 a vc or 22100 b vc is $234. The DMV point for violation of section 22100a 22100b vc is 1 point. Basically, it is a violation of section 22100 a or 22100 b vc for a driver to make a right turn or a left turn, respectively, from a position that is not immediately adjacent to the turning direction.

The cost for violation of 22100 a vc or 22100 b vc is much higher than the imposed $234 fine due to the 1 DMV point that will appear on the driver’s DMV record resulting in an increase for the insurance premium for 3 to 5 years. Therefore, to calculate the actual cost of 22100 a or b vc traffic ticket one must take into account the $234 fine as well as the increase in the insurance premium for the 3 to 5 year period.
