Traffic School For Speeding Ticket
Many people wonder if they can attend traffic school for speeding tickets in California. The answer is not a simple “yes” due to several factors. One of the most important items to note is the violation speed.
You will not automatically be allowed to attend traffic school for speeding tickets if:
- The violation speed was in excess of 25 mph over the speed limit. For example, if the speed limit on the roadway was 65 mph and you were accused of driving at 93mph.
- The violation speed was in excess of 100 mph. This is actually a more serious violation that carries 2 DMV points and in most cases requires for the accused to show up in court for an arraignment.
The violation code for driving in excess of:
- 65 mph is 22349 (a)
- 70 mph is 22356 (b)
- 55 mph is 22349 (b)
The vehicle code section for driving in excess of 100 mph is 22348 (b).
If you were driving on a roadway that was posted with speed limit less than 55 mph, then most likely you would be cited for violation Vehicle code section 22350. However, even some of the speeding tickets issued for violation of 22350 vc may not be eligible for traffic school. For example, if the posted speed on the roadway was 25 mph and you were accused of driving at 54 mph. In this case you would still not be able to attend traffic school for speeding ticket since the violation speed was more than 25 mph over the posted speed limit.
